Polaris-owned Godfrey Marine is adding two fishy pontoons to its high-end Monaco lineup — the MC235 FS and the MC255 FS. Both are equipped with a dedicated fishing station, a livewell that can double as a day cooler, cup holders that double as rod holders, dedicated upright rod holders, knife and tool storage, and stern fish seats on removable pedestals. The new FS series provides “the elevated style that defines the Monaco lineup, with the addition of dedicated fishing amenities and high-class features,” said Wally Ross, Godfrey’s director of product management and marketing, in a statement.
