Bayliner is re-launching the Trophy Series of center-console boats with the official debut taking place this week at the Miami International Boat Show. The series of six models has been developed to help boaters get on the water at an affordable price, but will have the features seasoned anglers look for, according to Bayliner.

The new Trophy 20- and 22-foot CC and CX models ride on a deep-V hull and highlights include a broad bow with space for casting or lounging. The 18- and 21-foot Trophy Bay models borrow the M-Hull design from the Element series of runabouts, which Bayliner says provides stability and a shallow draft.

“We’re excited to launch new models that give anglers all the utility they need, along with family-friendly designs that don’t sacrifice comfort,” Corey Duke, Bayliner general manager, said in a statement. “Giving this series the legendary Trophy name is our way of paying homage to the past while shaping the future of the family fishing experience.”

The Trophy 22CC with a 150-hp Mercury outboard and a trailer starts at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $41,999.

“We look at innovation as a way to design a better boat for our customers but also create that family-friendly price point,” said Duke. “For the Bayliner brand, it’s paramount that these boats not only be affordable, but offer all the features and versatility that lets anglers pursue their passion with ease.”

All Trophy models have self-bailing cockpits. The CC series come with aft seating that folds into a casting platform, while the CX models have for a full aft bench. Both lines have an enclosed head compartment, two livewells and owners can add options like a ski-tow pylon.
