TAHOE® 2150 CC:
New Hybrid Design Optimizes
Fishing and Tow Sports

Tahoe 2150 CC
TAHOE® 2150 CC

The TAHOE® 2150 CC is a new direction for this builder, with a layout that combines the benefits of a watersports deckboat with the fishing amenities of a center console. A forward seating area makes the most of the squared-off bow area while the helm console is surrounded by coaming bolsters for anglers to brace against. A removable tow pylon keeps the towline off the 200-hp Mercury FourStroke outboard. See our test with all the details here...

With an upswept sheer, sharp forward entry, and lots of flair at the bow, the Key West 244CC should deliver a relatively soft, dry ride offshore. She was a good performer with the twin 150 H.O.
