Understanding the Differences between the Tidewater LXF vs. CC Adventure Models is easy!
By Capt. Ted Lund
When buying a new boat, some of the terminologies that manufacturers use can be somewhat confusing. Thanks to some innovative thinking by innovative marine manufacturer, Tidewater Boats, the naming process for models has become a lot easier, allowing boat owners to find the perfect fit for their family-friendly adventures and fishing.
Tidewater Boats LXF and CC Adventure Models: The ABC’s
Two great examples of how this works are with two members of the Tidewater LXF and CC Adventure series. Each Tidewater boat share similarity like a dry chine ride thanks to greater widths chine-to-chine than other boats in the similar size range. The result? Smooth, dry performance and allowing models to operate efficiently with a variety of single and dual engine installations.
Each Tidewater Boat also features the company’s unique Carolina flair that helps deflect spray making your day drier. Tidewater’s hull system also features a proprietary Spray Relief Point which directs water down and away from the side of the hull. Coupled with the Carolina Flair, it helps make each Tidewater one of the driest boats on the water. No-wood, all composite construction makes all Tidewaters among the strongest and safest boats in the industry. Plus, each of the models are built around the company’s proprietary corrugated grid stringer vertebra which provides super strength and support throughout each boat.
Key Differences that Stand Out for Today’s Anglers and Family Adventures
When you start to delve into the differences between the 232 LXF and 232 CC Adventure, it becomes apparent each model serves different needs for the boater.
The distinction appears simple at first glance. The 232 LXF is almost a hybrid boat, built with luxury and comfort in mind for friends and family to enjoy a day out on the water. With a classic comfort design and key fishing features, the LXF is a family favorite whether trolling a rip or weed line, enjoying a few beverages at the local sandbar or tubing with the kids. The 232 LXF is loaded with full, comfortable upholstery and stainless-steel cup holders. A newly designed console includes a glove box, footrest, and catch-all trays. The large rear seat has a walk-through transom door. These features are standard. But, best of all, the family-friendly bow seating makes the new 232 LXF a luxuriously refined boat, guaranteed to provide a lifetime of fun for family and friends on the water.
But for some, fishing is their first passion, and they’ll want to look at the 232 CC Adventure. This classic center console fishing machine comes with more standard options than we can list here, but it will keep even the most serious angler in the fish inshore, nearshore and offshore. Designed with the serious fisherman in mind, the CC Adventure loaded with live-wells, insulated fish-boxes, massive storage, rod holders and even the option for a marine head and much more. The 232 CC Adventure is ultimately a customizable boat including multiple T-top, lighting, and cushioning options to meet the demands of any angler.
All-Tidewater boats are available in a variety of popular colors including Navy, sea glass green, cadet blue, carbon, oyster gray or white. Owners can mix and match those colors inside and outside of the boat, on the T-top and with an interior to create their unique look.
Tidewater Boats Raises the Bar of Excellence
In summary, there is no perfect boat for everyone. However, manufacturers like Tidewater Boats are making it easier and easier to make decisions and distinctions based on how they classify their boats.
