Soundings Magazine, Posted on 29 November 2010 by Chris Landry:

The North Rip 21 is back, now built by Pearson Composites of Warren, R.I. The deep-vee center console was reintroduced this fall at the Newport International Boat Show and will be on display in February at the Miami boat show, says Daryl Wilbur, director of North Rip Sportfishing Boats, a division of Pearson.

With its Carolina bow flare, tumblehome aft and raked transom, the North Rip 21 is a handsome fishing boat. Its deep-vee hull has 20 degrees of transom deadrise. "The 21 delivers a soft ride due to the aggressive entry and the deadrise that carries aft," says Wilbur, 41, who grew up in Bristol, R.I. "Our customers have been calling it a 'pocket battlewagon.' I designed it to fish the ocean rips of Block Island, Cuttyhunk and the Elizabeth Islands."

Wilbur built the 21-footer from 2001 to 2007, and Pearson acquired North Rip in 2009. Pearson Composites uses the SCRIMP resin infusion method to build the boat, which is cored with Core-Cell structural PVC foam.

A simple deck layout was a priority for Wilbur. "There are a lot of what I call 'clutter compartments' on today's center consoles," he says. "My philosophy is to build clean, open and ergonomically friendly platforms, but with very adequate storage and fishability." That storage includes three fishbox/storage lockers under the foredeck.

The boat also comes standard with a leaning post with three rocket-launcher rod holders and hydraulic steering. A T-top, trim tabs and raw-water washdown are options.

With a single 200-hp Evinrude E-TEC, the boat reaches a top speed of about 46 mph and gets around 3.1 mpg at 37 mph. The boat is also available with a single 150-hp Yamaha 4-stroke. With either engine, the base price is $62,000.

North Rip 21 Posted October 13, 2011 In Sport Fishing Magazine:

The North Rip 21 allows you to fish nearshore in tough conditions, and look good in the process


It pains me to believe that if you were to take the labels off a dozen nondescript 21-foot center-console hulls and line them up side by side, you’d be hard-pressed to tell them apart. That will never be a problem for the North Rip 21. This boat bears such a distinctive look and style that you cannot mistake it for anything else. That its look is particularly handsome certainly won’t hurt its chances of success either. This boat is elegantly simple in its functionality — and that takes infinitely more effort and creativity than simply loading it with all sorts of features.

Running the boat through the insane, chaotic chop generated by hundreds of vessels of all sizes performing sea trials during the Miami International Boat Show truly taxes a boat’s abilities. The 200 hp Evinrude on our transom lifted us to plane virtually instantly, and we hit a top speed of 46 mph at 5,700 rpm while burning 18.6 gph. Optimum cruise was 32 mph at 4,000 rpm using 10 gph for a 288-mile range. The North Rip has a pair of Volvo Penta QL trim tabs, which proved very sensitive at all speeds. At cruising speed, the 21 turns tightly (tighter to port than starboard due to torque) and leans substantially into it. A Yamaha 150 is an available option.

Conditions really tested stability in a beam sea, and the North Rip’s roll moment proved moderate with incredibly gentle transitions. Considering the design goals of this boat of fishing roiling north Atlantic rips for stripers, blues and fluke, it has attained its holy grail.

I watched from the dock each time the North Rip came and went, taking out assorted journalists, prospective buyers and potential dealers. It reminded me of a hummingbird, darting to and fro in complete control, changing direction in a blink and looking stunningly beautiful in the process. I just can’t get over its handsome utility.

When fishing such a compact boat among the steep rips and rough water commonly found in the Northeast, a nonskid deck becomes a critical factor, and the North Rip provides excellent grip without tearing you up if you kneel. I found the bow ideal for fly-fishing, which coincides with one of my favorite ways to catch stripers. The fishing space is wide open, with excellent toe space all the way around and a gunwale designed for comfort when you brace your legs against it. Pop-up cleats from stem to stern and a pop-up navigation light on the bow assure you’ll never snag that fly line either.

While a relatively small boat, the North Rip still features an above-deck, 20-gallon, recirculating livewell, a 180-gallon fish box under the foredeck, as well as a pair of 20-gallon boxes on each side. In fact, to date, these qualify as the largest fish boxes on a 21-footer on the market.

North Rip provides three rod holders across the back of a leaning post to augment four in the gunwales.

Design and Construction:

As you can see, the pretty lines of this boat with its proud bow really set it apart. The North Rip’s designer, Daryl A. Wilbur, performed extensive research prior to drawing the lines in order to carefully adjust the center of gravity and center of buoyancy. Consequently, this is an exceptionally well-balanced boat. As you might imagine, the hull incorporates lots of complex geometry with many curves, unusual radiuses and angles throughout, all created via an amazing seven-axis robotic router. Add to that the imprimatur of legendary Rhode Island boatbuilder Everett Pearson, and you simply can’t doubt that this boat will be as solid as a rock.

North Rip employs an advanced SCRIMP construction method (Seeman Composite Resin Infusion Molding Process) — a vacuum-bagged, resin-infused method of building composite hulls (in this case using Core-Cell) combined with hexagonal cell structure print blocker for a flawless glossy finish — and you can see that this qualifies as way more than your average fishing skiff. Anytime I can run a gorgeous boat that also offers unassailable functionality, I am all over it! There’s no doubt the North Rip 21 will succeed.

Seller's Comments:

Classic Carolina flair, deep vee bottom, elegant sheer and eye catching tumblehome combine to make the North Rip 21 both good looking and great riding. Built by Rhode Island boat builders, Pearson Composites,  using the latest advancements in vacuum bag “SCRIMP” technology to laminate North Rip boats using absolutely no wood anywhere in the structure. No expense spared in the construction of these high end boats including the use of all GEM LUX top grade stainless steel hardware. Beautifully laid out with 3 in deck fish boxes; 2-75 gallon and 1-400 gallon,  and 360 degree fish ability with angled toe kicks under gunnels that help you brace against the bolster and maintain sure footing while fighting big fish.  30 gallon insulated live well is oval shaped with blue interior and clear lid to keep bait live longer.  Wiring is top notch with Blue

Seas panel and battery switch. This boat not only has an incredibly high end build but handles like a sports car with its Evinrude 200 HP ETEC delivering a top speed of around 48 mph and a cruise of 32 mph at 4,000 RPMS while burning just 10 gallons per hour.  With its 90 gallon tank you will have a cruising range of well over 288 miles.  Designed by commercial Rhode Island fishermen to striper fish the brutally rough waters off Block Island’s North Rip.  Top quality Ray marine electronics package including 12” chart display with fish finder and Sirius weather receiver. High quality mooring and motor cover means there is no need to shrink wrap in the winter.  Quality galvanized tandem 3500lb axle bunk trailer can easily haul boat and gear and pulls like a dream.  Boat has been meticulously cared for and no expense spared in set up.
