    Captain's Report

    The Thinking Man’s Fishing BoatThe 195 Center Console is really a lot of boat for the price.By Captain Keith BurtonTest CaptainIn a day when boat builders know their customers, and fishing enthusiasts know boats, it is a bit unusual to see something different. Take the new Triumph 195 Center Console for example, it is perhaps, the thinking man’s fishing boat.ConstructionWhy is that? Well, it begins with how this boat is built. You see, Triumph is not your typical boat builder. All of the company’s boats are manufactured with a unique process using polyethylene pellets and foam, instead of fiberglass. This process builds a boat in huge one-piece molds that forms the boat’s hull and top deck as one complete unit. The result is a boat that is tough, resilient to impacts and for all practical purposes, unsinkable. Added to the 195 is a half-inch non-skid deck also made of polyethylene that is screwed into specially re-enforced locations in the floor, which adds more strength to the boat.But that is not where it all ends. Triumph should be credited also for designing a new boat with the features most fishermen want, such as plenty of walkaround room, storage space for rods and gear, and smooth performance over the water. Different Because It’s BetterWhat you won’t get in the 195 CC is a boat that looks like all the other boats. The polyethylene hull results in a semi-gloss surface that will appeal to the thinking man because it is resistant to weathering, and easy to maintain and repair. But it also handles rough water like larger and heavier boats. The 195 CC is also a comfortable boat with plenty of upscale features that add more than a bit of style. Starting at the bow, there is an attractive anchor sprit that juts forward under a wraparound stainless steel bow rail. The forward fishing deck is expansive with plenty of walkaround room for casting as this 18-foot, 6-inch boat has a wide 8-foot, 2-inch beam. There are lined storage compartments port and starboard for your gear, as well as a rope locker at the bow.The 195 CC can also be equipped with a full sun pad that includes an insert for the footwell, making this open fishing boat very comfortable when fishing is not a priority.Console FeaturesAs you would expect, stainless steel cleats and fittings are used throughout. Our boat was also outfitted with a stout T-top that looks terrific and offers mounts for fishing gear and antennas.There is plenty of foot space around the center console that lifts open from the front to gain access to the helm’s wiring and a storage compartment for the boat’s batteries. The 195 CC comes pre-wired for an optional trolling motor.The helm is features a broad panel of black on white gauges that are easy to see. Above the gauges is a compartment to protect the boat’s radios and electronics. The compartment is covered with a clear plastic hatch so you can see an optional fishfinder display screen without opening the cover. Our boat was equipped with an awesome-sounding Clarion AM/FM/CD Sirius satellite radio.A premium stainless steel steering wheel that tilts adds to the upscale feel of this boat. Underneath the steering wheel is a small storage compartment for personal items. There is also a control for the boat’s batteries and a small compartment with a freshwater hose inside.Two seats are provided for the helm, and both are comfortable and stylish with the Triumph logo stitched into the backrests. The seats also swivel and move forward and back. The stern features two mounts for jump seats. Performance and RideUnderway, the Triumph 195 Center Console feels like a heavier boat in that the hull seems to soak up wakes and waves, without the normal pounding and noise you would expect in a boat its size. Triumph tells us that this is the result of how the one-piece design and the polyethylene and foam construction distributes the pressure from the water hitting the hull. The material is more compliant to impacts, which spreads the stress loads and reduces the noise of water transferring vibrations through the hull.The 195 cuts and turns well with no dramatics and stays true to a course. One of the advantages of the boat’s construction is that a small, more fuel-efficient outboard can be used than on boats made of fiberglass that are the same size.Our boat was outfitted with a Yamaha 150 horsepower four-stroke outboard. With this engine, we saw a top speed of 45.4 mph, and a quick three-second time to plane, which is plenty of performance for this boat. The hull is rated for a maximum 175 horsepower motor. Overall, the 2006 Triumph 195 Center Console offers a lot of boat for the money with plenty of space onboard, and the type of features that compare favorably with center consoles that cost far more. But more than that, it offers the rugged, unsinkable construction of its polyethylene and foam hull that the thinking fisherman can appreciate.
