Larson Boats was purchased by Polaris Industries in January 2019, and production moved to Syracuse, Indiana. While the Larson sport boat line was shelved for the time being, the FX line of fishing boats continued – including the flagship FX 2020 Dual Console.
This fiberglass hull fishing boat, available in six gel coat colours, features a pleasing beltline arch from a high bow to a lower stern that says speed. Install the maximum 300hp Mercury, Suzuki or Yamaha outboard on the entirely composite (meaning no-wood) transom and fly across the water to your favourite fishing hole. There’s no mistaking that the 2020 DC was made for fishing. The deep forward keel makes for exceptionally easy back-trolling. The integrated tackle boxes are within easy reach under a hatch in the nearly flush foredeck, along with an 18 gallon livewell and space for a bow-mounted trolling motor.
The rod storage compartment holds 10 rods under the companionway through the walk-thru windshield. The helm features a three-spoke wheel and large flat surfaces for your choice of in-dash as well as aftermarket electronics and fishfinders. The captain’s seat features folding armrests and a high back, the companion and two aft pedestal seats can be move to one of seven seat bases.
The companion console features a lockable glovebox and plenty of legroom. There is additional rod storage in the two lockers aft, and flip out tackle boxes under the gunwales providing easy access for those fishing from the stern. The gunwale deck is reinforced for rod holders or downriggers.
The stern casting platform features two folding jump seat mounted outboard, and two folding hatches inboard concealing the 45” 29 gallon aerated livewell. Pop-up cleats ensure your lines don’t get snagged, and there is a 3-step reboarding ladder to starboard. Consider the optional Minn Kota Vantage stern-mounted trolling motor.
