Ocean Master 27

With a reputation for manufacturing what are arguably the world’s most durable and seaworthy vessels, Ocean Master’s 27 center console continues along the legacy of proven platforms with 100 percent hand-laid fiberglass construction using only the finest laminates, resins and gelcoats. Massive fiberglass stringers are completely glassed to the hull, resulting in a true one-piece structure. The inner liner of each Ocean Master is fully vacuum bagged with vinylester compound to ensure a complete bond between fiberglass and core material.

From here the deck is bonded to the sides of the hull and stringer system using premium vinylester bonding compound. The console is then attached to the deck using state-of-the-art methacrylate adhesive, opposed to being attached with screws. The end result is a structure that can only be described as severely overbuilt. Maybe that’s why the U.S. Navy has Ocean Masters in service in the Indian Ocean, surpassing over 300,000 miles on each of their five vessels!

Each and every Ocean Master is semi-custom and built from a bare hull, enabling owners to pick the options and features down to the last detail. Nothing more and nothing less. The large center console provides room for a head, while ample dash space offers enough room for a full suite of intelligent electronics. The large deck has ample storage, with custom dry compartment and fish box configurations available upon request. Anglers who enjoy going the distance will appreciate an approximate 400-mile range with 130-gallon fuel tank. Equally important, the 8’6″ beam ensures this sweet chariot can be trailered with ease. Whether you are a die-hard angler or pleasure boater looking for a spacious and fuel efficient vessel, you owe it to yourself to take a good look at this proven platform. Ocean Master, 561.840.0448,
