The Key Largo V-24 Offshore Test: Saltwater Rig With Evinrude Power

IMG_9961

The Key Largo 2486 WA produced impressive performance in our test runs considering that she was powered by a single 250-hp Evinrude E-TEC G2 H.O. outboard. “H.O.” stands for “High Output” which in this case means she produces something like 275-hp at wide-open-throttle. She got on plane in 4.8 seconds, reached 30 mph in 8.1 seconds and topped out at 49.5 mph, turning a BRP 4-blade 15 x 18 stainless steel propeller. She draws around 20” (.51 m), making her suitable for bay and lake fishing as well as offshore work.  Read the full review, done by boattest.com, Here

Key Largo’s are a fisherman’s dream.  They are well suited for both ocean and fresh water fishing, with all of the amenities that a fisher could ask for!  Not only do they perform, but they will give you the space and freedom to reel in and haul as many of the fish of your choosing that you can catch.  Be ready to have a day long “fish fry” after a day out on one of these boats!

Interceptor

These boats, falling more in line with a speed boat than your typical bowrider, go fast!  Don’t let the sheer speed of it all distort the fact that these boats can do it all!  Great to fish on, lounge, or pull a tube behind, Interceptor boats have something for everyone.  Unlike some competing boats, these boats excel at all of these things, not just one.

Caravelle

The name sake boat of Caravelle Boat Group, this line been in production from DAY 1!  These are the perfect combination of powerful bowrider, affordable pricing, and fan favorite!  I recently got to test drive one and found it to handle and perform better than a family member’s much more expensively priced boat that he brags about all of the time.  You have to come and try one sometime.  There is a reason that this boat is still in production, and as soon as you try it, you’ll see why!
