Captain's ReportQuality, Value, and Good Looks: Laguna C-210 SCThe C-210 SC sets a new benchmark for what is expected of standard features on a center console fishing rig. This boat, motor, and trailer package has just about everything you could want before you set offshore. Built with the latest designs and best materials including running strakes, vinylester barrier coats for prevent moisture intrusion, and Carolina flare to deliver dry rides, the C-210 SC slices through waves, and features a sporty feel with a 17 degrees deadrise at the transom.Bow Features Abound Standard features begin at the bow with a dedicated pop-up anchor cleat along with a dedicated anchor locker with hanger and room for anchor rode. The bow casting area features an aggressive grip surface for sure footing while reeling in your catch. The spacious locker in the bow is fully finished inside and out for easy cleaning and there is a huge insulated box for storing your gear or your catch. A few well thought-out features include the recessed bow rails which are out of the way of lines and the removable bow cushions are easy to care for and have dedicated storage in the seat base.Moving BackThere is plenty of moving space next to the helm which features a frameless acrylic windscreen that is surrounded by a solid handrail which doubles as a grab rail. The black accent band at the base of the windshield to conceal a space that is usually filled with dust and debris is a nice touch. Every Laguna comes equipped with a standard Richie compass; Mercury SmartCraft SC1000 digital gauges are also a standard item. Lighted rocker switches are protected by push-button circuit breakers and a 12 volt socket is available for portable gear. A large 12” x 15” space to the right of the gauges is for adding more electronics. The Verado powered hull uses Mercury’s Digital Throttle and Shift controls for easy, responsive performance. Laguna makes steering nearly effortless with a three-spoke stainless steel steering wheel with a speed knob for close quarters handling and hydraulic assist for handling. The leaning post seat with heavy duty grab bar is equipped with four rocket launcher-style rod holders across the back and there is room for a large removable cooler underneath. Under the helm are the tube drains for the drinkholders and the electrical races with pull cords for easily adding more electronics. Back here there is enough room to add a Porta-Potti for your fishing family.Aft CockpitThe aft cockpit is where most of the fishing action will take place and it is ready for you; there are standard bolsters to protect your thighs, wide gunwale with two rod holders built into each side, rod racks below and toe rails to lock your feet in when fighting a strong-willed fish. One feature that is found on all Lagunas that we tested was multiple access portals around the boat for working with plumbing and electrical races which will make any electrical or plumbing task simpler. Across the stern are twin 20-gallon aerated livewells for multiple bait types and a fold-down bench seat for when you need a rest. In the engine splash-well is a raw water washdown connection and access plate to the bilge pumps and water shut-offs. To cool off, you can jump in and get back on board with the ½ platform on the port side with grab bar and three-step telescoping swim ladder.SpecificationsThe C-210 SC measures 20’6” length overall with a beam width of 8’3”. She weighs 2400 lbs dry weight and draws 14” with the outboard trimmed out of the water. This model carries 75 gallons of fuel for a full day of fishing and is rated for a 150-hp super charged Mercury outboard on her stern.PerformanceI tested the C-210 SC on the IntraCoastal Waterways in South Florida and found her easy to handle and a smooth dry ride.

The C-210 SC is a super charged center console with nearly everything you could consider standard as part of the package!
