Length w/ Pulpit:
Introduced in 2000, the Pro-Line 30 (called the Pro-Line 31 in 2005) is a heavily built offshore express with a broad 10'10"" beam and an innovative deck layout.
A stable fishing and diving platform, she easily doubles as a weekend cruiser with seating for several guests and a unique topside galley. While she looks at first like a traditional walkaround design, the helm console has been moved aft on the lengthened bridge deck to make room for an open-air galley to starboard, directly across from an extended L-shaped lounge. Standard features include an integrated swim platform with ladder, bow pulpit, 45-gallon aft livewell, in-deck fish boxes, built-in tackle box, transom door, trim tabs, fresh/raw-water washdowns, cockpit bolsters, gunnel rod holders (4), rear bench seat, and rod storage racks. Most were sold with an optional factory hardtop. Below, the Spartan cabin of the 30/31 Express sleeps two and includes a standup head/shower, galley with stove and fridge, and a double berth forward. A heavy 30-footer, shell reach a top speed in the range of 40 knots with Yamaha F225 outboards.
Overview Good-looking express with innovative layout is more family dayboat than hard-core fishing boat.
