For those who live to fish, the 3300CC is the tournament-grade center-console of choice. Beyond Kevlar reinforcement, triple bolsters, triple fuel cells, triple engines and a sleek, unmistakable profile separate it from the chasing pack. 360-degree fishability and premium features, including multiple insulated fish boxes, an easy to reach bait prep area and an illuminated 55-gallon baitwell, separate your crew from the runners-up, and all who follow.
TRAILER NOT INLUDED, COULD BE NEGOTIABLE
The helm is designed for comfort on long runs. Three, two-position convertible leaning post/padded seats combined with three different footrests offer a variety of position-shift options to match the ride and the conditions on the longest runs and toughest seas. An Edson-style tilt steering wheel and a throttle that puts your fingers right at the trim tab rocker switches show considerable forethought. There’s plenty of room on the panel for all the ten-inch screens you want.
The Carolina bow flare is pronounced, but the addition of wide covering boards, bolster and low-profile bow rail let you lock in securely on the bow deck without feeling off balance. Both port and starboard, a good rod length back from the bow, locking doors in the hullsides open to rod-stowage areas. These are for static storage, rather than rigged-and-ready holders. This storage capacity is one of the key features in the hide-everything-away-at-the-dock approach. This boat is built to lock up all the tackle you need, for a day trip or an extended cruise through the islands. The purpose, Leva explained, is to eliminate endless schlepping of gear and tackle at the beginning and the end of a fishing day.
Under-gunwale rod holders in the cockpit have removable covers that swing in over the reels and lock up as well. All together, the boat easily holds 40 rigged rods, locked away safe and out of sight.
A pair of huge fishboxes port and starboard on the bow deck are piano-hinged with 316 stainless, completely flush to prevent catching the edge of a boat shoe or a toe. On the forward sole, a gasketed hatch gives access to a huge storage box. On the bottom of this hatch is a molded depression the same size as the bottom of a five-gallon bucket, to keep it from sliding around. Along the interior hullsides, opposite the console, are two bottom-hinged potato-bin-type storage lockers. Little details like these are found throughout the 3300 – simple things, too many to list, that make life easier when you’d rather concentrate on fishing.
In the console are the batteries and battery switches and over six feet of headroom. Behind the helm is a 55-gallon live well with bait-prep area that is a serious affair. Adjustable to three different water levels, live-well inflow is top to bottom via a 3500-gph pump that effectively moves 3000 gph through the tank. Matching outflow provides efficient water exchange.
