Center console is a type of single-decked open hull boat where the console of the boat is in the center of the boat. There is a cabin on some models, these cabins are usually located in the bow and hold small berths for sleeping. The boat deck surrounds the console so that a person can walk all around the boat from stern to bow with ease. They seem to be destined to speed fishing.
The console of a boat is where all the controls are located, including steering, ignition, trim control, radio and other electronic devices, switches etc. It may have a small storage space and/or a head. In general there is no weather protection or berths, making the design ill-suited to cruising. The console may have a T-Top cover to provide limited relief from the sun and rain, but this is not universal because it interferes with fisherman’s casting. Most center consoles are powered by outboard motors.
