The answer to both of those questions for the new Stingray 206CC Deck Boat is “yes.” This model is a perfect compromise for families who want deckboat space and amenities but with the onboard equipment and center console layout that anglers need.

Designed with a low profile to clear low bridges (63 inches!), the 206CC is available with either a standard center console or an optional deluxe console, which has upgraded finishes and a larger forward seat. The dashboard is spacious, with room to fit a 10-inch fishfinder/chartplotter. With both console configurations, the doublewide helm seatback flips forward to become a leaning post for fishing. A 26-gallon livewell is hidden underneath.

In addition to seating for nine, the 206CC has wide walkaround access, making it easy for fishermen and families to move around the boat. Forward, a pair of seats have backrests for forward-facing relaxation, and a wide platform is between them for casting from the bow. A forward-facing seat is in front of the helm console with a 17-gallon cooler underneath, which can be upgraded to a second livewell. A feature sure to be popular with families is the optional head tucked inside the console.

Aft, two seats have backrests that lift for seating and fold down for use as casting platforms, or to make it easy to step aboard from a pier or dock. Anglers will find ample storage for rods in the cockpit, three tackle boxes in the cockpit and console, and no fewer than 10 — count em’ — 10 rod holders!

Power is the buyer’s choice of outboards from a Suzuki 115 up to 200 hp, which can push the 206CC more than 50 mph (with Yamaha 200s). That’s more than enough power to please watersports enthusiasts. Add in the optional removable ski pole and you can tow skiers and wakeboarders all day long.

Options are endless, including blue LED underwater and speaker lights, a Sunbrella Bimini top, raw water wash down and seagrass flooring.

Combining the best features of a deckboat and a center console, the Stingray 206CC is a compact, well-built and fun boat for families.
