Solace Boats has introduced a new 345 center console boat with a unique transom and a hydraulically extending swim platform.
The 345 is the first model for Solace Boats with the first center console available starting in June. Pricing has not been released.
Solace touts the 345 as a “family-friendly, fishing and diving prowess,” that combines luxury and adventure. The V-bottom stands apart from other center-console models with the cockpit extending between the twin outboard engines. The 5 foot flush access sweeps through a dive door and the hydraulically extending swim platform.
Seating on either side includes two-person folding benches and a three-person retractable bench that extends from the work station.
“In the pursuit of exceeding customer expectations, we have created a product that breaks with convention, and offers the ultimate on-water experience,” said Stephen Dougherty, who founded Solace Boats, with his wife Sarah. “The 345 is beyond capable where it counts, and solid in every regard. She will redefine boating as we know it.”
The 345 will be built at Dougherty’s 200,000 square-foot factory in Edgewater, Florida. Dougherty said the company is in the process of setting up a dealer network.
