Carolina Classic Boats is located in Edenton, North Carolina. Founded in the early 1990s, Carolina Classic makes tough but luxuriously appointed open water fishing boats outfitted with top of the line fishing gear built in to every vessel. Such essentials as fish boxes, recessed rod holders, and outriggers let you know right away that you are out for more than a pleasure cruise. Owners love the superior organization which optimizes a successful fishing experience, and even those who are along for the ride appreciate the amenities included especially for them, such as the flat panel TV, stereo system, and gourmet galley.
Lest you get the impression that these fishing yachts are designed for lazy summer days on a calm sea, note that Carolina Classic boats are built to be tough. The extra-strength hulls give the crafts dependable stability in rough waters. More extra-mile features such as precision-fitted liners and reinforced stress points all add up to the kind of strength which will take the punishment of open seas. Designed for soft re-entry in rough conditions, and featuring a wide bow which directs waves away from the deck area, all of the Carolina Classic models from 25 feet to 35’ are as seaworthy as the latest technology allows.
These fishing machines are equipped with oversize fuel capacity to take you where the big fish run. Of course, all the avid fisher folk who own Carolinas love the fishing amenities, but they also comment on the smooth ride and economical operation afforded by these craft. Professional boat reviewers comment favorably on the power, handling and attention to detail in the Carolina Classics under review.
