NorthCoast’s Hard Top Boats: Three-Season Fishing Machines

NorthCoast’s three-season cabin boat lineup is for serious fishermen who push the limits of the fishing season.

With the addition of the new NorthCoast 255 HT, NorthCoast’s three-season cabin boat lineup now includes four hulls for serious fishermen who push the limits of the Northeast’s fishing season. Along with the 255HT, NorthCoast builds a 285 HT, 235 HT, and a 215HT – which happens to be the official boat and grand prize in the 2020 Striper Cup.

From spring haddock to fall blackfish, you can get on the water earlier and extend your season with a rugged NorthCoast cabin boat. Check out NorthCoast’s lineup at a local NorthCoast dealer or visit the NorthCoast Boats website for more information.
