Sailfish 275 Dual Console Boat Video Walkthrough Review

Being a serious ”fish head”, Lenny Rudow usually likes to start his boat reviews at the back of the boat in the stern, where most of the fishing takes place. But on the 275 dual console from Sailfish he instead begins by focusing on the notably luxurious bow seating area. It’s “downright comfy,” as he puts it, noting that the builder sticks with that comfort theme throughout the rest of 275DC, extending easeful amenities to every corner of the vessel.

Exceptional Comfort On A Capable Crossover

Sailfish raised the bar in terms of affordable crossover boats with the 275DC model by delivering exceptional value and quality along with a smooth and dry ride, which the company attributes to the Variable Degree Stepped (VDS) hull and self-bailing cockpit. Moving aft, away from the snug, deep bow seating towards the rest of the cockpit, one passes through the two side consoles on either side to find a convenient bow block off door. The windshield also closes tightly above, so if it gets rough or windy you can completely close off the bow compartment and be fully protected at the helm controls.

At The Helm

Once at the helm, captains will find full digital instrumentation and a large dash capable of mounting a flush 12″ screen along with LED Interior cockpit lighting throughout. There’s also LED navigational bow & anchor lights to complement the cockpit lighting. The cockpit has comfy seats for both the captain and passengers featuring chaise lounge style passenger seats.

A Great Entertaining Boat

And of course, a dual console boat has to be a good entertaining boat too, right? Well this one doesn’t disappoint in that department either. She delivers oodles of stowage and comes with a well-equipped cockpit galley and wet bar with tons of cupholders throughout. A freshwater sink is fed by a 14-gallon fresh water tank and a “handy-dandy soap dispenser” is particularly useful when boating during COVID-19. A big step-down head compartment inside is great for long days on the water.

Fishability On The Stern

Finally, back in the stern, the Sailfish 275DC also has that fishing focus that Sailfish is known for. She has lots of rod holders with spots for tools, knives and pliers, plus a baby blue, gasketed-livewell in the corner of the transom with a clear hatch so you can see your bait. Of course, what Lenny stresses the most about this area of the boat is its fishability, featuring a pull-out raw water wash down transom shower and ample deck space that is well-suited for reeling in price winning catches. So, if you’re wanting to cover both the fishing and entertaining aspects of a dual console, you’ll definitely be in good hands with the Sailfish 275 DC.
