Thanks to a deep-V hull, the new 2900CC from Parker Offshore delivers a soft, dry ride whether for offshore fishing or island hopping. The 2900CC (34’ LOA, 9’ 6” beam) comes stocked with fishing features including a leaning post with a 25-gallon live well, a 270-quart fish box, a 40-gallon live well on the transom, and two in-floor fish boxes totaling 350 quarts. Additionally, there are 90-quart insulated storage boxes in the bow seating and a four-drawer tackle cabinet to port and starboard.
Seating consists of a two-person helm, a couple seats in front of the console, bow seating and a rear bench that folds away when not in use. Parker Offshore offers various electronic packages and the helm is large enough to fit twin Garmin 8612 XSV screens and a VHF radio. Access to the cockpit is simple thanks to a starboard walk-through from the swim step.
The 2900CC comes loaded with standard features that are often options for other builders such as the dive door with a telescoping ladder or the portable toilet in the console. Potential buyers can upgrade to a dockside pump out and macerator.
The fiberglass T-top is a $9,200 option and includes an electronics box, LED spreader lights, four powder-coated rocket launchers and two speaker pods. The 2900CC includes a Wet Sound stereo with six speakers as standard but offers optional high output speakers, subwoofers and amplifier.
Parker Offshore builds the 2900CC using fiberglass stringers and flotation foam for added strength and buoyancy. Parker backs its hull with a limited ten-year warranty. Protecting the hull is a heavy-duty rubrail with a stainless-steel insert.
For power, Parker offers either twin Yamaha F250UCB or F300UCB outboards with the Yamaha autopilot package with joystick steering. With room for 12 people and a 191-gallon fuel capacity for good range, the 2900CC is a fishing machine.
