The tournament-quality Bluewater 355e meets anglers’ demands—whether for tournaments or just for fun—with its speed, range, space, and fishability. The 355e is 35 feet, 9 inches long, with a 10-foot beam that enhances its spacious, flush deck. With a new design from the keel up, it combines a powerful deep-V hull configuration with a separate deck cap to provide 360 degrees of uninterrupted toe space beneath the extra-high gunwale. With a 380-gallon fuel capacity and rated for 900 horsepower, the 355e takes you where the fish are as fast as you care to go.
Twelve standard rod holders and locking under-deck storage keep your rigs secure and out of the way. An extra-large macerated insulated fish box forward holds your catch with four more fish boxes built in for good measure. A 90-gallon in-floor livewell and Bluewater’s exclusive 60-gallon transom well—which easily converts to two 30-gallon wells—provide ample bait storage. The 355e includes built-in tackle storage for 12 Plano trays and your choice of 4 leaning post/tackle stations. The one-piece multiPlex stringer system is enhanced with molded storage boxes integrated into the design, which provides greater rigidity and includes far more insulation for all of the fish boxes.
The 355e offers a host of options including twin or triple power; hardtop or tower with duplicate controls and electronics; instruments and control panel per your specifications; creature comforts such as a head and shower; and a variety of luxury seating configurations.
