The Sterling 3800 Center Console is a Michael Peters design with a pronounced flare forward and a tumblehome transom. She should be a hit with fishermen who need to cover serious miles, and with those who have weigh-ins with time restraints. The fully cored, inch-thick, stepped hull is constructed with Corecell Kevlar and advanced epoxy vinlyester resins. Speed will be a selling point, touted at more than 70 mph thanks to the 22-degree deadrise and triple outboard application. Twin 6-foot, macerated fishboxes and a 60-gallon live well hold catch and bait under the self-bailing deck. Cockpit area is 70 square feet. Headroom in the cuddy is 6 feet, 2 inches, and inside are a head, a sink, a shower and a full twin berth. There are two water systems: raw-water washdown and domestic fresh water. Stowage includes an insulated compartment forward. The few items on the option list include coaming bolsters, a T-top, an electronics box, outriggers, shorepower battery charges and a tackle center refrigerator. Engine options range from twin 225 hp outboards to 1,000 hp inboard/outboard packages. Hull number one is expected to be available in August.
