I would just imagine that water would at some point get into the motors or water would be forced into the exhaust. I just could never see a boat this big back down on a fish without ruining a motor...also can’t tell but that back looks relatively low... any thoughts?
No need to back down as soon as the fish sees the boat it dies of fright...

Default Educate me

Unfortunately I don't have as much experience fighting large fish as I'd like; so please elaborate on what the issue is with fighting a fish in the bow and then working it to the stern? Isn't that what a center console is all about? I've seen this argument against a high bow making it impossible to fight a fish and therefore the boat is useless for "real" fishermen.

looks like it has a faux step in the hull. Wonder how many actual Suenos they've sold. I'm sure all those will be up for sale soon since those people will want to up their game to this. Ayyy yaa yai.
Isn't midnight express working on something in the 60's too ? May be completely wrong tho..

Putting this particular boat aside, a high bow on a CC makes visanility more difficult underway unless you are on a platform which some do not like. The added profile also catches more wind which impacts drift. Any real fish should have a captain at the helm anyhow and the angler back in the stern where stability is the greatest. Fish should not be chased rather kept a bit less than paralell anyhow.

360 fish ability can be beneficial to kite fishing, ground fishing with a group or cast fishing. All can be accomplished with a higher bow. I do not like the look of a large flared bow on a CC personally.

If you have the money for 65 cc you can make it go as fast as you want and fuel burn isn't an issue.

So a range of 180-360 miles. That's like 100 trips to the sand bar and back.
