Trophy 2359 Walkaround Hardtop Review by yachtandboat.com
Trophy's big walkaround hardtop suits all-weather fishermen and overnight adventurers.
I first noticed the Trophy 2359 Walkaround at the Adelaide Boat Show and was taken immediately with its bold lines and its rather unique layout. It's a boat that fits nicely into the category mentioned above. The 2359 bristles with the sort of features, standard of workmanship and attention to detail that have made Trophy a big name in boating worldwide. Unlike some of the US-built craft we see here in Oz, the 2359 would fit readily into a heap of local fishing situations, and sales figures across the country to date would certainly support this.
It's a big rig that needs a four-wheel-drive tow vehicle. A Ford F250 or V8 Land Cruiser are perfect for the job. The 2359 hull is available in several configurations and the one I chose to test was the full-length cabin version. This may not appeal to all fishos, but for those who enjoy extended cruising and on-water overnighting, it's close to ideal. There's a shorter cabin option that offers more workspace out back and this would better suit the hard-core offshore sportfisher.
Standard angling features in the 2359 Walkaround include twin sub-deck fish bins, plumbed live-bait tank, quality rod holders and gaff rack. Although at first glance the live-bait tank resembles a toilet (!), it's essentially very cleverly designed. It has sufficient capacity and water recirculation volume to keep a couple of dozen yakkas happy for days if necessary. Stainless steel fittings throughout, and particularly in the cockpit, are about as good as they get.
The extended cabin is nicely equipped for a weekend away. It has a small sink with pressurised water, single-burner stove, fridge and table for two people. This table converts into a full-length bed if so desired and there is plenty of storage space beneath the cabin seats for sleeping bags, pillows and spare clothing. The cabin is lockable and also very well sealed to eliminate engine exhaust fumes while travelling. The hard top is equipped with sturdy grab rails for security while moving through the walk-around areas and there's enough room up top to carry an inflatable if so desired.
The Trophy's helm station is nicely laid out, with very comfortable seating and great all-round vision. In fact, I can't think of another boat in this class that offers 360° vision from within the confines of an enclosed cabin. It's surprisingly quiet with all windows closed, but can get stuffy due to the amount of glass around you and I found it more pleasant to travel with one of the sliding panels at least half open. Up forward, there's a very comfortable berth with double bed, chemical toilet and more storage. A couple or small family could spend as much time on board as desired, making the Trophy a very appealing option for those who have things other than fishing to consider.
Out on the Southern Ocean, however, the big Trophy showed it's certainly capable of travelling far and wide if necessary. There is no doubt it would be capable of running to the Shelf if necessary or island-hopping through the Whitsundays on a tropical fishing adventure.
