The 185 DC has the capabilities of a fishboat with the look and accommodations of a sportboat. The 185’s layout offers seating for six or seven and makes a great day cruiser for family or friends.

Key Features

    The cockpit is clean and uncluttered even with the optional ski-tow pylon. Pedestal seats are standard but a leaning post with an 18-gallon livewell is available as an option. At the helm there is plenty of room to mount electronics with good dry stowage space. There’s additional seating for two forward of the center console, and under each seat cushion there is dry stowage space for gear or tackle. The 185 also has a sharp forward entry with an 18-degree deadrise aft. In short, it’s a well-designed fish-'n'-ski package.

Edgewater 185 DC Captain's Report

The hallmark of EdgeWater boats is their exceedingly rugged construction using two techniques—Permagrid and RAMCAP. Both these techniques add to EdgeWater’s strength and stiffness.

EdgeWater’s 185 Dual Console is a trailerable boat that offers the abilities of a fishboat with the looks and accommodations of a sportboat. Her layout offers plenty of room for fishing and other water activities. A small platform or retractable step on the port side makes the boat useable as a swim platform or a ski boat.

The 185 Dual Console features a 100-percent handlaid fiberglass hull, backed by an all-fiberglass foam-filled PermaGrid stringer system. Her running bottom is tough and can cut through chop, with her sharp forward entry and 18-degree deadrise aft. Her transom uses 28-pound density foam core sandwiched by vacuum bagged fiberglass.

Our test boat recorded a top speed of 41.7 mph and a best cruise 27.9 mph at 4000 rpm with a single Yamaha 130 V-4 engine. With her standard 56-gallon fuel tank she can run almost 200 miles between fill ups. The maximum rated power for this model is 150-hp, and we think most owners will opt for that size engine. After all, speed is half the fun.
