I might have found my next boat with that center console layout.....Best of both worlds for me. Now if they could beef up the front panels to handle larger waves it would be a home run.
If anyone gets their hands on more photos of this one please let me know.
Thanks for sharing Jack!!
Boy o’ boy! Some spiffy looking boats there Jack.
Oh yeah, center console finally!!!!! My symmetrical OCD can be cured!!!!
Throw some sand bags in ass end to lift bow...
I was actually thinking about making some "armor" if you will for the front of mine using carbon fiber. It would be easy to mold to the curve of the fence and with some ribbing should be pretty strong. Should be lightweight too. Carbon Fiber bennington....that would be sweet.
That would be sweet!
Is it me or does the seating in that red/white boat look kinda tight???
Dang I just noticed that red ones a step down helm to bow seating ...
From my dealer F&S Yamaha & Marine post on Facebook. The center console ...
Head to the dealer Andy
Thanks Dave. Now I need to study these photos!
After further review I'll wait for version 2.0 to come out. There are some misses here in my opinion. The seat in front of the helm doesn't have a back rest so your spine will hit the t-top bar. I don't see any coolers/fish boxes. T top isn't wide enough to give more shade. No mat on the helm for the captain to rest his feet in the indent. No tray for your cell phone at the helm from what I can see, have to use a cup holder.
Also, most CC's have an accessible helm that houses a head or allows a bunch of storage. If this was on a boat with ESP that would be plenty of room to make it work.
Aside from the rocket launchers there are no rod holders down low in the gunnel.
With a little more R&D this thing could be a hit!
Good catches but could be easily remedied. There is a changing room under lift up swingback platform.
Easily add a “glovebox” and some rod holders on padded sides. Also a backrest added to seat in front.
Here’s livewell under seat in front of console.
I agree they are easy fixes, but the customer isn't really set up to make a new back cushion and extend the top. The other stuff would be easy to correct as well. I see this as more of a bay boat as you are not going to get a good mahi in that box! Here is one my neighbor and his wife caught. Kudos to Bennington for sticking their neck out on this one and branching into a different market.
The new bow rider layout caught our attention. Saw a few different versions on a FB forum. Really like it!!!
Curious to see what is under captains seat?
Hopefully a larger livewell.
Mmmmm... On an ESP bottom with a big Yamaha. Mmmmm.
That last boat with the 2 engines looks like it has a 10 foot beam???
Oh no, I meant easy fixes for Bennington. At least they are trying to expand their line up. I wondered what they could come up with next.
