19’ Center Console Design for Better Fishing
One of the top features that makes the 195 Sportfish one of our best 19’ boats is the center console design. While other deck layouts have their advantages, having a center console fishing boat allows for complete access to the water from all sides. These boats give you more space to cast and better versatility when it comes time to haul in a large, hard-fighting trophy. The intelligent center console design creates one of our best 19’ boats.

Superior Hull Design Creates Efficiency & Performance
Every top-quality boat needs an excellent hull design. That goes for any vessel from massive battleships to luxury fishing boats. Further amplifying its status as one of our best 19’ boats, Air-Assist design of the 195 Sportfish to creates a smoother, more efficient ride. This three-piece hull decreases the time and effort it takes for the boat to reach a plane and improves handling and ride stability. This is the hull that started the Scout Boats company, and it’s still used today on many of our crafts.

Wide Beam with Narrow Surface Contact
The “beam” is a nautical term for the width of a boat. On the 195 Sportfish, you’ll enjoy a beam of 8’ 6”, which gives you enough space for all of your boating activities. While you might assume that the wide beam would mean a large contact surface with the water, which would cause more drag, the hull design allows for minimal contact space, reducing drag and enhancing efficiency and performance to yet again make this model one of our best 19’ boats.
