Key West Boats
Since 1986 Hutch Holseberg has been working to build a high quality, value priced mid sized fishing boat. It took years of long hours and hard work but the dream has been realized with one of the largest selling mid sized fishing boats on the market today.
The best way to learn about a Key West boat is to ask an owner. An owner enjoying his boat is the best advertisement in the world. Key West provide their customers with answers to their boating questions as well as an attentive ear to their suggestions.
Their line of outstanding boats are designed primarily for saltwater use both inshore and offshore, but will serve very well for rivers and the largest lakes. They are designed by fishermen, for fishermen, but can serve a family for any recreational activity on the water from skiing and tubing, to a peaceful cruise to be with nature. Each hull from 15' to 29' is designed and built for a smooth, fast ride with positive control and fuel efficiency. Every Key West boat meets or exceeds US Coast Guard Standards. Many Key West models are CE certified meeting some of the most stringent standards for safety, structural integrity, and stability in the world today. Starting with 2004 models, they back every boat with a TEN YEAR "TRANSFERABLE" STRUCTURAL HULL WARRANTY. Key West can back their boats better because they build them better. Introduced in 1992 with the 172 series, their time proven NO WOOD/NO ROT CONSTRUCTION will provide you with years of dependable service. Key West is your KEY to performance and quality, and "The Best Value on the Water Today".
Key West 239FS Center Console

Enjoy the comfort of the full width bench seat in the rear and the optional front facing seating in the bow for relaxing day on the water with the family and friends, or hit the blue water safe and secure in a very capable long range offshore fishing platform. Fishing features include the ever present live well, rod storage racks, trolling rod holders, and even an insulated, macerated under floor fish box up front. The 239FS is ready for whatever water sports your family enjoys.
Key West 219FS Center Console
The Family Sportsman center consoles, the 219FS expands the creature comforts of the rest of the line up into a boat that can take on some serious open water on occasion. The spacious front deck converts from comfortable forward faced seating with back rests to twin dry storage or fish boxes as you desire and need. The console houses the largest of the Key West changing rooms to date, and of course doubles as tremendous storage. The dash panel will flush mount up to 12" screens, and most radios, gauges, and controls. The rear bench seat has fully lined storage areas underneath the comfortable seating, and the swinging transom door offers easy entry for the swimmers. Check one out at a dealer near you soon.
Key West 209FS Center Console
As trends change in boating we have noticed more emphasis on family activities such as water sports and cruising and less importance placed on pure fish ability. No longer is it Dad and the guys who determine the features and design of the boats as much as it is Mom and the kids. Dad still wants to fish, but Mom wants the boat to be comfortable and functional for other purposes, and the kids need a place to sit. The Family Sportsman series is designed with all of these needs in mind. Compared to our traditional center console designs you will see more seating with the full width bench seat in the stern where the cushions are removable to convert the bench to a fishing deck. Cup holders haven’t been missed and you will find them at the transom seat, console, and even on the front deck. Rod holders are still important as well, and the Family Sportsman has rod storage molded into the side wall of the boats, a feature normally found only in high end, expensive boats. Storage is always at a premium in any boat and we have expanded there with fully lined compartments under the bench. As is true with every Key West Boat, the Family Sportsman series also has live wells in each model. Live wells can double as storage, cooler space, or simply a trash compartment when not used for their intended purpose. We haven’t missed the sunbathers either. They can lounge comfortably on the full width bench seat in the rear or on spacious front decks. The Family Sportsman from Key West Boats is an all around water sports platform for the whole family no matter what the day brings.
Key West 189FS Center Console
The 189FS now comes with a porta potty room under the console. This is a family oriented center console with less emphasis on hard core fishing and more on the water sports many families are enjoying on the water today, such as skiing, tubing, camping, or just being out on the waterways. It features more seating, cup holders, and storage to accommodate all family members, but we never forget the fishermen. It also includes molded in rod racks and a generous live well. The bench seat in the rear features removable cushions to convert it to a nice fishing deck as well. This boat is as well rounded as the modern family.
