Constructed to withstand rough offshore conditions, the Carolina Classic is "a liner boat," Privott says. The cuddy, helm and all cabinetry are glassed in solid to the stringers and hull, forming a one-piece boat that takes pounding with no rattles and no creaking. Privott says the hull seems oblivious to weight alterations, running the same at full load or light load, with two passengers or 10.
In the cockpit, two in-deck fish boxes pump overboard via a mascerator pump. Across the back of the helm deck, anglers find plenty of bait-prep space with a fresh-water sink, tackle storage cabinets and insulated ice box. A livewell is optional.
