Default New 54 yf

Posted on their FB page. I saw this beast Friday coming through the no wake zone. WOW, It made my boat look like a toy

Doesn't even look like a Yellowfin.

Weird Yellowfin is catering to this crowd, i thought they only made hardcore fishing boats. It looks like a scout or grady with all the creature comforts.

I'd still fish it if someone have it to me tho!!!

I personally hate it but don’t blame Yellowfin one bit. They’re in business to make money and if this is where the money is then good on them. I would never guessed that Scout would set the trend with a 53’ luxury CC. Well I guess Intrepid has been doing it a while but anyway.

As well as Hydrasports with the new HCB's

As far as the Yellowfin, there's enough room between the two 100 gallon console livewells for another seat..?

Beautiful boat. I wish I could afford it.

Could be just the angle of the photo but visibility from the helm looks horrible. From that picture I doubt you could drive the boat if people were sitting in the seats forward of the windshield.

When the market finally nose dives and you see a flood of center consoles hit the market , these boat builders will ditch that big 50' + mold so fast it'll make your head spin.

Amazing. But agree with others- that single rear facing seat looks ridiculous, and the forward seating has to block the view from the helm.

Not gonna lie, she doesnt like very good from the side. That windshield and hard top combo just does not work in my opinion.

That rear facing seat needs a rod gimbal for between the knees

It is a big ass cc. No doubt.

However when I see it I don't say to myself "wow, that's a nice yellowfin".

Looks like you have to get a running start to get to the lounge seats up front. I think they missed the mark on this thing, just doesn't look right IMO

That upholstery is...not for me.

Looks nothing like a YF.

I'm sure it's a sweet boat, but doesn't draw me in.

THis boat is apparently getting a gap tower put on after the show. I believe the standard top looks different
