In 1992, a handful of experienced, dedicated craftsmen formed a company to create the strongest, safest and most reliable boats on the water. They named their brand EdgeWater Boats.

Almost two decades later and about a dozen years ago, EdgeWater became part of the North Marine Group, known for its work on projects from America’s Cup racing yachts to the space shuttle. EdgeWater retains its small-company agility, responsiveness and drive, proud of its custom-tailored, no-robotics assembly.

EdgeWater 340CC

EdgeWater set out to craft a 34-footer truly matched to the needs of both angler and family. The result is the 340CC, its deep-V hull and generous length-to-beam ratio optimized to create a family-fishing machine.

Fishing amenities include a standard 32-gallon livewell and an optional and popular 38-gallon pressurized aquarium livewell with a clear front. 

Of 28 strategically placed rod holders, eight are dual-purpose rod/cup holders. The fiberglass top has more rod holders, and within the walk-in console is a pump-out head. Outriggers are among options, as is a console enclosure. Twelve lockable rod-holder inserts keep tackle secure.

Among other storage areas, the 340CC’s forward lounge seat welcomes gear, fenders, buckets, or optional bow table or forward backrests.

At the helm, an integrated visibility step folds unobtrusively into the base of the helm seat when not in use.

Tunes are provided by a standard premium Fusion stereo with JL Audio speakers, amp and subwoofers. Anglers and family will enjoy selected Garmin electronics and an optional Seakeeper 2 gyroscopic stabilizer. Standard are twin Yamaha 300s.

Manufacturer’s Remark

The 340CC has a lightning-quick chameleon quality to change from fishy to family.
