On the heels of their successful Trophy Series, Bayliner has announced the launch of the all-new Trophy T24 centre console. The veteran company, who are owned by the Brunswick Corporation, has marked the Trophy Series as part of a larger strategy "to increase boater participation through its intuitive and feature-rich designs."
“The Trophy Series represents one of the most versatile models within our center console line-up blending fishability and affordability in a way that is attracting seasoned anglers and first-time boaters in record numbers,” said Benoit Verley, President, Brunswick Venture Group. “We’re excited to expand our Trophy lineup offering our consumers additional capacity with the same convenience features found across the Bayliner brand, as well as new options designed to enhance the on-water experience.”
The Trophy T24 carries an LOA of exactly 24' on an 8'6" beam and comes in at respectable $64,900 MSRP. The platform is a family-friendly fishing boat at an entry-level price point that will be attractive to both new and casual boaters alike.
