Let’s take a closer look at the Century 2900 Center Console in this Florida Sportsman boat review. The 2900 CC model from Century is a legitimate offshore center console with an eye towards serious fishing that doesn’t sacrifice any family amenities to meet that end. The 23-degree bottom at the transom on the 2900 offers a soft ride in the blue water, in fact -she fishes like a much larger boat. To punctuate her abilities as a serious fishing platform, Century adds a giant 62-gallon live well into the transom along with a pair of 277-quart insulated fish holds with pump outs- below deck. Lockable rod storage and plenty of tackle storage is available throughout the boat.
Consistent with this brand, Century includes a host of luxury features as part of their (standard included) equipment package. For example, a stainless anchor with 15-feet of chain and 285-feet of rode along with an anchor windlass system terminating into a polished thru-hull anchor roller chute are standard equipment. In the bow seating area- full bolster and cushion sets and a removable dining table are also included to complete the forward-facing seats with removable backrests.
The helm experience is made much more pleasant under the shade of a large stylish hard top framed with D-tubed pipework and a three-sided glass enclosure. A blacked out acrylic helm face with large twin multi-function display units is easily viewable and seating for both the helmsman and companion chairs are multi-faceted contoured captain chairs with independent electric powered controllers. A tackle station behind the seating and Frigid Rigid cooler below are also standard equipment. Add Bennet trim tabs with lighted position indicators- a Wet Sounds Marine Media Center with four 6.5” speakers and amplifier and Optimus Electronic Steering- again, each are also standard equipment.
When it comes to building an all-inclusive feature heavy family friendly center console- Century has really put a lot of thought into the layout and equipment included on this model. For the combination of luxury family features and serious fishing capabilities- for a boat in this class it would be hard to find something the 2900 is missing.
