Stephen Dougherty’s new line of boats is ramping up in its Edgewater, Florida, facility and starts with the Solace 345.
The future-forward Solace 345 features a patent-pending “FishThru” transom design where the hydraulic aft swim platform extends four feet beyond the transom door and between the twin outboard engines. The extra length adds a formidable space that allows divers and swimmers a safe and comfortable entry into the water.
Dual 52-gallon, fully finished, pressurized livewells with tuna tubes sit to port and starboard. The bait prep center includes twin stainless steel drawer refrigerators, an electric grill, a bait rigging bin, and a freshwater sink with a pullout shower. That’s a lot going on in the center of the cockpit.
Add sleeping accommodations for two, a microwave, a second station on the T-top, and ample rod storage, and you’re in fishing heaven. When the fishing is done for the day, relax on any number of seating options from three-wide at the helm to the hydraulic mezzanine seat to the sunpad ahead of the console. The new 345 is expected to be
a perfect balance for work and play.
