Bayliner Boats unveiled the F21, a center console targeted at family fishing and day boating.

Measuring 21 feet, 8 inches overall, the boat is the biggest in the manufacturer’s Element line of center consoles. It has Bayliner’s M-Hull design and a deeper entry at the bow than its smaller counterparts.

“This boat is the largest center console model yet and an affordable way to get out and enjoy family fishing, cruising or any number of day boat activities,” Bayliner president Keith Yunger said in a statement. “It’s roominess and versatility are exceptional. When you factor in the price, it’s a value you’ll be hard-pressed to beat anywhere.”

The bow has an anchor locker and two open compartments. The helm has space for optional electronics and includes a storage compartment in the forward section that also can be converted to an optional live well.

The reversible captain’s seat has a cooler in its base. The aft section features two jumpseats flanking a recirculating live well. Standard power is a 115-hp Mercury four-stroke outboard; a 150-hp upgrade is available. Anglers also can add a trolling motor and a pedestal-style bow fishing seat.
