    Captain's Report

    Choose From Center Console or Dual ConsoleThe 170 is designed to get you into the world of fishing much faster.By Capt. Bob SmithTriumph delivers one of the toughest boats to the market thanks in part to its Roplene technology. It has been a couple of years since I first saw these boats, and the changes have been both in design and convenience. These boats can really take a beating and are truly durable. One of the advantages over their fiberglass kin is the quiet, smooth ride these hulls deliver. Even with a bunch of chop from a busy waterway, the ride was as advertised, smooth and dry. You don’t even have to worry about waxing your ride a couple times a year like you do a fiberglass boat. These are so easy to keep up the maintenance on even your kids can do a great job with them.Bow FeaturesThe stainless steel bow rail on these boats adds to the safety on the water when it comes to the little ones aboard. The bow area can be converted into a large casting platform when needed. Triumph adds to the seating on the CC with a bow bench in front of the helm that has four rod holders and a padded seat. Inside is a handy baitwell. The storage hatches up front on the CC model have removable stands inside to keep the gear out of any water that may accumulate inside. Getting to the helm from the front or working a fish down the gunwales is easy with wide walkways from front to back. With the dual console version, you have more of a bass boat feel to the walkthrough at the helm stations.Helm and SeatingThe helm of the CC has a fixed position stainless steering wheel. A 12-volt connection is handy for portable GPS or charging the cell phone underway. Faria fog-free gauges monitor engine performance and have bright chrome bezels. Electric control switches are to the right of the gauges, and the throttle is to the far right, with two cup holders above. A gasketed door below the wheel keeps things in the box dry like your license and wallet. The seat is a nice flip seat that allows you to actually have a double seat while underway, or a wide bench to relax and watch your lines to the rear at anchor. Beneath this seat is a cooler that has a bungee cord to keep it in position. The DC has typical bass boat seating and controls. The advantage of the DC configuration is more protection for the companion rider and more of a ski boat feel and ride.Stern FeaturesAt the stern, the CC has a stern light clipped securely under the gunwale on the starboard side, so you don’t have to rummage around trying to find the light when the sun sets. Corner seats are fix-positioned with access to the batteries under the starboard seat. Access to the bilges is under the port seat. Good protective rails and a center grab bar make it safer when underway in these seats. Triumph offers a swim ladder to add on, which can be mounted on the starboard side of the stern. These seats did make it a bit harder to reach over and handle the ladder, but once you figure out a system, it’s not so bad.SpecsThese handy and very popular boats are 16’10” length overall with a beam width of 6’5”. They weigh about 1100 lbs and have a fuel capacity of 21 gallons. They are rated for outboards of up to 75-hp and have a 13-degree deadrise at the stern for added fuel economy.PerformanceI tested these boats on the Intracoastal waters off Morehead City, NC. I found best cruise to be at 4000 rpm and 29.8 mph on the 170CC. At cruise, she burned about 5.5 gph for a range of 103 miles with a 75-hp Evinrude E-TEC outboard. The 170CC was on plane in just 3.5 seconds and cruising up to 30 mph in only 9.2 seconds. The 170DC model hit a top speed of 31.7 mph at 6000 rpm.The marina where we tested used a lot of the 170DC boats as well as the 170CC for rentals. They told us the boats were easy to manage, clean, and the renters didn’t destroy them like fiberglass boats of the same size. These boats are ideal for new boaters and are easy to handle. In addition, they’re easy on the pocket and simple to maintain.
