Introducing the all-new Tidewater 320 CC Adventure

By Craig Lamb

Luxury appointments and the durability, toughness, and fishability required by serious saltwater anglers. Combining the comfort and style of a yacht into a boat designed for offshore fishing is a tall order. But the engineers and designers at Tidewater Boats did it all in the all-new 320 CC.

From the premium upholstery to the highly refined seating and spacious storage, the Tidewater 320 CC delivers it all in style. The boat is loaded with high-end fishing features that meet the needs of any saltwater angler going miles offshore for a day of fishing. Back at port, the 320 CC turns into a masterpiece suitable for cruising the bays, canals, and inlets in style.

The 320 CC has a centerline of 32′ 2″ with a beam width of 10′ 4.” With a weight of 8,200 pounds, the 320 CC has a capacity of 2,200 pounds. Deadrise at transom is 22 degrees and the boat drafts approximately 23 inches. With a recommended 700 horsepower the 320 CC is ideal for ultimate offshore four stroke. That, of course, is the 5.3L V8 F350C, the most reliable and powerful in its class.

Inside the 320 CC is an abundance of space. Aft cockpit depth is 27” with a midship depth of 37.” Bow depth is 37, ” and the 320 CC has a bridge clearance of 108.” 

Tidewater Boats are designed with distinctive Carolina Flair, setting up the dry ride, to direct waves away from the hull using reverse chines. Tidewater likes to appropriately call that feature the Dry Chine Ride.

Carolina Flair and the Dry Chine Ride are enhanced by another feature adding to the smooth, dry ride. The Corrugated Grid Stringer Vertebra absorbs the shock of waves against the hull in choppy water. Filled with foam to reduce noise and vibration, the stringer system works like a human skeleton to create a rigid, unified construction that tightly secures all of the internal parts. Those include fuel tanks, consoles, seating and storage compartments that are fastened to the stringer system. To ensure a solid, tight fit, every stringer system is customized for each Tidewater model.

Another defining Tidewater feature is the Spray Relief Point. That is the point of impact on the hull deflecting water away from the boat. Multiple SRP areas enhance the characteristic dry ride of the Tidewater.

Composite construction, foam filled hulls, cored decks, and gunwales plus much more quality design, materials and construction are extras that come with the price of a Tidewater.

By taking extra steps not found in most brands, Tidewater has the confidence in providing owners a 10-year, transferrable warranty that covers the hull.

Tidewater stays close to it’s saltwater roots with the manufacturing facility located in Lexington, S.C.

Vacation Locations: Knowledge is Fun Too!

Most children (and adults, too) will either roll their eyes or sigh when, while speaking about vacation locations, the word “learning” just happens to be mentioned. Yes, it is a fact that school trips take all of us during our younger years to everything from museums to libraries to historic locations in order to teach us things we should know. But when thinking about your vacation, you should know that by considering journeying to a particular place that just happens to register high on the historical or educational meter, you could have even more fun.

Is Social Media Still Growing?

It was in 1999, Bill Gates wrote a book titled, “Business @ the Speed of Thought.” Within these pages, the man who became the computer world’s wizard made massively bold predictions that, at the time, sounded ridiculous and outrageous to those who read them. But when you look at how the social media realm has grown over the past few decades, it is important to take note that not only did his predictions from 1999 come true, but they are also responsible for seeing social media continue to grow by leaps and bounds to this day.

Besson Adapts Comic Book Series Novel into Hallucinogenic Sci-fi Spectacular

In 1997, Luc Besson released The Fifth Element, a visually-captivating sci-fi adventure which netted four Cesars, including Best Film and Best Director.
