CAPE HORN 39T

  At close to 40 feet overall, the new 39T from Cape Horn was designed for chasing everything from striped bass and bottom dwellers near-shore to large pelagics on The Rip. Two massive 115-gallon livewells, each with 2,000 gallon-per-hour pumps, provide plenty of room for live bait while an insulated fish box with macerator and overboard discharge measures 9 feet and offers 400 gallons of fish storage capacity. Walk-through transom doors to port and starboard make boarding and boating gamefish fast and easy while a foldaway transom seat provides additional seating for the ride out. Multiple under gunnel boxes and two aft in-deck removable storage boxes provide additional space for gear and tackle. Other standard cockpit features include 360-degree coaming bolsters, fresh and raw water washdown, under gunnel lights and outriggers with 18-foot telescoping poles. Rod holders are everywhere and total 49 all around the boat.
  The console is massive and provides plenty of room for all the navigation, communication and fishfinding electronic needs. An oversized hardtop has two electronics boxes plus room for additional storage and there is seating at the helm for three on deluxe bolster helm seats with slides. A large 200-quart cooler forward of the console provides plenty of extra cold space for drinks and other perishables. There are several cockpit and gunnel lighting packages to choose from while five spreader lights and six flush-mounted speakers are standard. Inside the console you’ll find 6 feet of headroom plus a standard porta-pottie that can be upgraded to a Vacu-Flush head. Contact: Cape Horn Boats at 850-626-2211 or visit www.capehornboats.com.
