Sailfish 272CC…..Boat Review

My initial look at the Sailfish 272CC was impressive, to say the least. The boat’s presence provided an impression of beauty and functionality that begins with a hull having a varied degree in stepped design. This design has multiple benefits, such as a smoother ride in normal and especially hostile conditions. The 24-degree bow angle cuts seas like a knife providing a comfortable and dry ride. For me, the best of all was that the hull design enables the captain to make fewer trim adjustments in the event of passenger movement or changing sea conditions.

The helm area provides a whole new look with its three sided glass enclosure that again keeps passengers dry on those rough days. The hardtop is larger than most boats of the similar class, which is another reason the ride is nearly always a dry one. The top comes with seven rod holders, a spreader setup, and LED lights. The helm area also has a black acrylic dash that allows for visibility whether seated or standing.  The dash features are more than ample room for the latest electronic packages and position for easy monitoring. The upgraded helm seats have fold-up bolsters and armrests, all made of high-end upholstery. These seats are an offshore angler’s dream providing both comfort and great looks. Inside the locking glove compartment is a USB port for charging your phone or a 12-volt plug.

Other features include a prep station with running water, storage drawers for rigging, or just fixing a beverage for the ride back home. The electric head in the port console is roomy with 52 inch headroom and easy access. Other features include a portside side door as well as an electric winch.

The fact is, I could have talked about this boat for hours and never repeated myself. It’s one of the few boats I’ve reviewed that I can say covered all the bases. Again I really liked the hull design that minimizes the impact of the ride on those sloppy days and being able to control the boat even easier. The design also allows the Yamaha 150’s to get out of the hole quickly and with ease. The cockpit layout makes for a comfortable boating environment, largely due to the helm seats and footrests. The extended top makes for a dryer ride as well as a cooler one on those hot days, and the arrangement of the rod holders work so well.

The Sailfish 272CC checks all the boxes and then some, and is great for the angler that loves to fish nearshore and beyond. It’s filled with tons of great features that play straight to the avid fisherman. I have to give it a 9.5.
