Launching a new boat company can be challenging, especially in a market with so many established center-console boat manufacturers. Solace Boats knows the challenges but is confident its new 345 center console will stand out from the crowd.
What sets the 34-foot boat apart is the transom that extends aft between the two Yamaha outboards. The unique transom design—dubbed a FishThru transom—allows the boat to run in shallow water.
A unique feature is the workstation behind the leaning post includes an aft-facing bench seat. The seating retracts into the console when not in use, providing access to the Corian countertop with a dual basin sink that includes a faucet and freshwater shower. Below the sink is dual refrigerator and freezer along with three drawers.
For the helm, the builder integrated a hardtop with a windshield that opens hydraulically. The station includes three Billfish series with flip-up bolsters and armrests. Electronics include an array of Garmin products from radar to dual 8617 multifunction screens.
