by Ted Lund

 

Whether looking for a family-friendly boat for long fishing weekends, cruising the coast or pulling water toys, experienced and novice boaters alike will want to take a long look at Tidewater’s 196DC.

The 196DC is based on a fuel-efficient, wide-beam hull design and loaded with extra features.

In addition to its signature walkthrough-dual console design, the 196DC includes standard options such as dual livewells, a large insulated fish box, rod holders, gunwale rod rack storage and an open cockpit. All it needs to become the ultimate all-purpose boat is the optional ski bar — providing hours of family fun.

The 196DC is 19-feet, 6-inches at the centerline and sports an 8-foot, 2-inch beam. Weighing in just shy of 2,000 pounds without motor, the 196DC is easily trailerable with most family vehicles. Its 56-gallon fuel tank feeds a reliable Yamaha four-stroke engine than ranges from 115- to 150-hp. The boat’s 50-degree bow deadrise helps it cut through most any chop you’ll encounter in rivers, lakes and coastal tributaries and the 17-degree transom deadrise provides a solid, stable platform. The 23-inch gunwale height makes for a dry, comfortable and safe platform.

As with all Tidewater boats, the available options are endless. Owners can chose from a variety of console layouts and options, as well as

custom covers and Bimini-style canvas offerings to help keep things cool when boating weather heats up.

Here is something that isn’t optional: Tidewater’s commitment to, and pride in, quality construction and manufacturing.

The Tidewater 196DC is available in seven colors: white, carbon (gray), sky blue, bimini blue, fusion blue, island green and black. Other standard options include a self-bailing deck and cockpit, automatic bilge pump, LED nav lights, aluminum backing plates for deck hardware, horn, hydraulic steering, front and rear jump seats, a rear center seat, as well as stainless steel hardware including thru-hull, rub rail, steering wheel and knob, hardware, flush-mount cleats and more.

Each member of the Tidewater family of boats features all-composite, no-wood construction with fiberglass stringers and a hand-laid fiberglass hull. Each boat is rigged to AYBC standards and is backed by a 10-year transferable hull warranty.
