Tidewater on the Rise with 198CC

by Ted Lund

 

New boat owners looking to transition into a full-featured, value-packed saltwater or big freshwater rig are going to love the new 198CC from leading marine manufacturer Tidewater Boats.

Tidewater 198CC

Tidewater 198CC

Built with distinction and the same precision materials and to the same exacting standards as the rest of the Tidewater lineup, the 198CC is perfect for the first-time boat owner and old salt alike.

Standard features include two captains chair, stern jump seats, a recirculating livewell, Baystar hydraulic steering, console access with room for an optional head, pull-up cleats and an integrated swim ladder.

The 198CC weighs in at 1,950 pounds dry weight, with a length-over-all of 19 feet, 8 inches and a beam of 8 feet, 4 inches at the widest point. The 198CC drafts 12 inches of water, making it a perfect choice for the first-time bay boat owner. The 25-inch transom can accommodate a Yamaha four-stroke outboard up to 150 horsepower, providing a top speed of 49 miles per hour and with 56 gallons of onboard fuel capacity, you’ll have plenty of range.

The 198CC enjoys the same standard features found on the entire Tidewater lineup include all-composite, no-wood construction, a fiberglass stringer system with full foam floatation, self-bailing cockpit, a hand-laid fiberglass hull and a 10-year transferable warranty.

Owners also have a choice of standard Gelcoat colors in white, carbon (gray), ice blue, horizon blue, marlin blue, driftwood (tan) and black. Additional options include bolsters, bow cushions, 12- and 24-volt charging systems, leaning post, salt and freshwater wash down and several different T-top options.

New for 2015, Tidewater owners also have a choice of Garmin electronics suites for installation on new models. Although larger vessels have the option of a glass cockpit consisting of larger units, 198CC owners have a choice of Garmin’s 441 or 541 units.

As with the other members of the Tidewater family, the 198CC is built with distinction; individuality on the inside, uncompromising quality on the outside. Each Tidewater is cloaked with unmistakable ingenuity and integrity. It’s what makes Tidewater standout from the rest of the pack.
