I believe that Center Consoles are so popular for the same reason that 4 strokes are so popular: That's what people have been told they should like. Before the advent of the 4 stroke, people loved their 2 strokes. Now, if you listen to all the praise for less noise and no exhaust smell from the 4 strokes by people who have them, 4 strokes sound wonderful.

The fact of the matter is that Center Consoles are easier and cheaper to build. Eliminating the cabin eliminates lots of detail work and expense for the builder. The one thing the propaganda artists haven't been able to do is make people believe that Ethanol gas is better than non-ethanol, but stay tuned, they are working on that.
