The new Nor-Tech 340 Crossfish Sport is an all-around family boat that comfortably hosts 12 or more guests for a day of leisurely cruising or serious fishing activity on the water. Underwater lighting, a large sunpad forward and an aft jet boat seat with stunning finishes set this boat apart as a luxury center console, but a serious fishing machine is designed into the heart of this 34-foot boat that draws 2 feet, 6 inches. A 65-gallon livewell, carbon fiber Tigress outriggers, under-gunnel rod holders, twin 8215 Garmin screens, Garmin autopilot, and high-power transducer add to the 340 Crossfish’s fishability and super-sleek design. The center console houses a large double berth with seven-foot headroom, sink and a head for a quick overnighter.
Powered by twin Yamaha 350-hp outboards, the 340 Crossfish tops speeds of 70 mph, eases onto plane with little or no bow rise and stays on plane at 12-15 mph. In addition to extreme speeds and high fuel capacity, this boat provides a dry ride and performs at a high level with exceptional rough water handling and stability. (239) 567-5030; nor-techboats.com
