Length w/ Pulpit:
For several years the 330 Coastal was the largest model in Wellcrafts fleet of fishing boats. Introduced in 1989, shes constructed on a modified-V hull with a relatively wide beam and prop pockets (side exhausts were added in 1992). Designed as a dedicated sportfisherman, the 330 Coastal came with a good inventory of standard equipment including two in-deck fish boxes, a circular livewell, tackle center, and a transom door. (A factory marlin or tuna tower was a popular option.) Both helm and companion seats are mounted on raised boxes with built-in livewell and bait prep station that swing back for engine access. Although shes primarily a fishing boat, the cabin accommodations are suitable for weekend cruising with berths for four, a full galley, convertible dinette, and enclosed head/shower. Note that oval ports replaced the original cabin windows in 1998. A bow pulpit was standard, and the side decks are wide enough for secure bow access. A popular boat with a long production run, twin 310hp gas inboards cruise the 330 Coastal at 1820 knots (high 20s top). More recent models with twin 375hp Volvo gas inboards cruise in the low 20s and hit 30 knots wide open.
