The new Glasstream 360 Pro-XS (36′ LOA, 10′ beam) is the latest offering from the Panama City, Florida-based builder, and her innovative dual-inverted variable geometry hull was designed by A.L. Kirkland, Jr. The design reduces surface tension and hydrodynamic drag while simultaneously creating a controlled surface tension on the rear part of the planing surface, meaning this rig runs smooth and fast on top of the rough stuff.
The Glasstream 360 Series Hull runs faster with less power and is extremely stable during wave transitions, resulting in a much smoother ride during higher sea states. With twin 300-hp Mercury Verado outboard engines, the 360 Pro-XS runs in the low 70-mph range and cruises at 48 mph, with a fuel economy at cruise of 2.5 mpg.

The boat is loaded with amenities for both hardcore fishing and a day cruising with the family. A full-size walk-in head with sink and shower, and electrically reclining sun lounges in the optional forward seating and stowage area make her comfortable. For anglers, full-size insulated fish boxes, tournament-style baitwells, tackle centers, rod lockers, rocket launchers, and prep stations are standard in the Tournament Series of the Glasstream 360 Pro-XS, which also offer top-shelf Garmin electronics as an option.
