About the Boat

Fish truly have reason to fear you. With the 2103 Center Console, you literally have it all - a balanced ride, ample room and plenty of fishing features. A broad, 8'6" beam creates a wide-open cockpit for easy maneuvering plus plenty of room for the necessities: rod racks, a bait station with large baitwell, and a console with flush-mount electronics. The THS™ hull design handles big-water swells with ease. Its composite structural grid delivers exceptional strength. When you need to get wet, a transom door and an integrated transom platform provide easy access to and from the water.

Key features of the Trophy 2130 are:
  • With full-length rod storage, 30-gallon lighted VORTEX baitwell system, sink, large fish cooler and raw water washdown, the 2103 was designed for the serious fisherman.
  • This boat is built for offshore use with fiberglass stringers, large volume deck-drainage capacity, sealed doors and hatches, and generous freeboard.
  • The deep V hull and aggressive bow flare provide an unequaled, soft, dry and safe ride - even in rough conditions.
  • "Family friendly" with a built-in stainless swim ladder, walk-through door with "slam" latch, and an enclosed head.

When the going gets wet, boaters appreciate the wide deck rails and crowned walking surfaces sporting an "aggressive grip" non-skid surface.
