Our Mission

Center Console Life is dedicated to choosing and outfitting a center-console boat and the enjoyment and satisfaction of fishing, cruising, water sports, and quality family time. CCL’s expert writers – most of whom are dedicated center-console owners themselves – are passionate about this style of boat, and are always on the cutting edge of the newest designs and the latest engines, accessories, and trends. They’ll provide up-to-the-minute boat and engine tests and reviews, as well as in-depth articles covering maintenance and upgrading, cruising and fishing destinations, waterfront dining, tournaments, events, and on-the-water family fun. It’s the only publication to directly serve every center-console owner – and those who would like to become one!
