Center Console 30'


The PROTECTOR 30′ center console hard bottom inflatable boat successfully combines design and comfort for unrivaled performance on the water.  The Protector 30′ center console hard bottom inflatable boat was born from the Targa 30′.  As with the Targa, the 30′ hull for the center console center console hard bottom inflatable boat was redesigned to accommodate today’s larger and heavier outboards. What was initially designed as void in our product lineup has quickly become the latest in performance innovation on the water.  With top speeds in excess of 60 mph, and the ability to handle almost any type of seastate, the 30′ center console hard bottom inflatable boat has become our best selling center console model.

The Protector 30′ center console hard bottom inflatable boat is the perfect tender, coach boat, or day boat that can be customized to suit your year round boating needs. Basic design considerations include a large anchor locker for underbow automated anchoring, luxury rear bench seat, and there is 6 additional square feet of aft deck (compared to our 28′ center console hard bottom inflatable boat) for easier boarding and the option for a stow able picnic table.

The engine wells have also been enlarged to accommodate today’s larger V-6 four stroke Outboards.

Increased hull length while maintaining the same beam and dearies translates to 180 lbs of additional buoyancy for the perfect balance of boat and outboards for getting to where you’re going regardless of the sea state with complete confidence.

This is the only boat I’ve ever owned that my wife will go to the Vineyard regardless of how rough it is…and she typically demands to drive.
