Boat Previews: Cape Horn Boats 34XS

The value of a capable center console has proven itself over and over, and Cape Horn’s 34XS is among the best in its class. Boasting an incredibly versatile size and layout, not to mention the classic Cape Horn build, this boat is an offshore powerhouse.

While the XS in this boat’s name is for extra seating, hardcore anglers looking to maximize open deck space need not worry. Despite the added seating to keep passengers comfortable, the vessel’s fishability remains uncompromised. With 41 rod holders, a massive transom livewell, 700-quart fishbox and much more, the fishing features on board are certainly impressive. Furthermore, the 34XS comes standard with 18’ outriggers.

Easy operation is also an incredibly important aspect of the 34XS’s overall value, and several standard and optional features make the experience at the helm enjoyable. The large electronics box provides operators with full control of all vessel systems, as well as clear view of multi-functional displays. A smooth ride is also a part of the experience thanks to Cape Horn’s unique hull design and construction, not to mention standard EPS steering, electronic trim tabs with indicators and a comfortable tilt steering wheel. As an added bonus, prospective buyers can also adorn their vessels with a crow’s nest hardtop, yielding a heightened vantage point that provides an enhanced view of the vessel’s surroundings for both safer operation and increased sight fishing capabilities.

Despite all the features that make this vessel one of the most formidable fishing machines on the market, it’s the comfort that sets itself apart from the rest of the Cape Horn fleet. Comfortable, cushioned seating is available throughout the vessel, yet is strategically placed so that it does not impede angling efforts. Furthermore, coaming bolsters wrap around the entire interior of the vessel to offer relief to anglers pinned up against the rails fighting the fish of a lifetime. At the state-of-the-art helm, captain’s chairs with armrests make the experience for helmsmen second to none.

Finally, the 34XS is quite the looker. With a variety of hull color options, optional powder coating and custom seating upholstery options, just to name a few, you’ll not only be speeding past the competition to the fishing grounds, but you’ll be riding in style as well. To top it all off, owners and their passengers can rest assured that they’re riding on one of the safest center consoles in the world. Cape Horn’s proven construction has been deemed unsinkable, and for good reason. Decades of boat building expertise have gone into the 34XS, making it one of the most seaworthy center consoles on the planet.
