– the fully-redesigned Century 3200 CC features new swim door, leaning post, deck features and more –
ZEPHYRHILLS, FLA. – Century Boats, a classic American boat company established in 1926 and based in Zephyrhills, Fla., unveiled its fully-redesigned 3200 CC during the 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. New features include a side swim door, full digital switching, remote key fob, enhanced leaning post design, and more.
“We’re excited to show the 3200 CC’s new features during this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Enhancements include many new items that our customers have requested – and some very special innovations that we think will make a big splash,” said Bryan Lucius, president of Century Boats. “With the 2018 model, we took an opportunity to really reexamine and refine the overall deck experience of this boat. Some of the new features include a fully-redesigned leaning post, an innovate new elevated helm platform, electronic conveniences, side-entry swim door, and much more.”
With the 2018 3200 CC, Century Boats introduces its first-ever elevated helm platform. Fully integrated with the 3200 CC’s new leaning post, the elevated helm platform folds forward out of the leaning post to provide a 4-inch higher deck space between helm and leaning post. The extra height is designed to give a standing captain an elevated view over the console and around the perimeter of the boat. The platform requires no working mechanism to activate or stow and folds easily into the leaning post with one-handed operation.
The entire leaning post has been redesigned on the new 3200 CC to provide enhanced comfort, convenience and storage. Featuring two independent electric helm seats with adjustable bolsters and slides, each chair is wrapped in a new diamond-patterned SILVERTEX(tm) vinyl to provide enhanced protection against bacteria, mildew and UV rays. Stowed inside the leaning post is a 65-quart Frigid Rigid(tm) cooler that is accessible from behind the station via a new one-handed slide mechanism. The leaning post also features added flip-out storage behind the helm seats, flush-mount combination rod and cup holders, and stainless-steel side grab handles.
New technology items on the 3200 CC include a remote key fob and full digital switching via Raymarine. The new key fob engages the boat’s batteries remotely to activate lighting and accessories as the captain steps aboard. Upon disembarking, the key fob can return all batteries to the off position. The new 3200 CC is also fully digitally switched via the Raymarine eSeries HybridTouch(tm). Digital switching replaces mechanical circuit breakers and rocker switches with a state-of-the-art digital power distribution that allows users to control onboard electrical systems like lighting, navigation lights, entertainment systems and more from their multifunction displays, smartphones or tablets.
The new heavy-duty side swim door is another prominent feature on the 2018 3200 CC. Overbuilt to withstanding punishing weather and seas, the new swim door features a durable, stainless-steel latch and two-step operation to open fully-flush inside the vessel – allowing easy access to the boat from the dock or water.
“This year’s model of Century’s 3200 CC capitalizes on its tried-and-true hull performance and adds several layers of technology and above-deck convenience,” Lucius said. “It’s our promise to keep innovating – and we’ll keep working to exceed our customers’ expectations for luxury, fishability and reliability.”
