NauticStar Boats continues to innovate and expand its boat lines with the all-new 211 Coastal and Angler. This uniquely styled boat series merges family pleasure boating with serious salt and freshwater fishing. The 211’s design models itself after the phenomenally successful 231 Coastal/Angler that NauticStar launched last year except in a smaller, less horsepower package. As a second-generation boat, it replaces the 210 Coastal/Angler that has been a staple in NauticStar’s boat line for many years.
“The 210 has been such a great boat for us, it seems crazy to replace it, “said NauticStar president, Phil Faulkner. “But, we are very excited about the improvements and features that this new boat offers. The hull is engineered just like our 231, which means you get all the benefits of our STAR Performance System—with the planing pods and air assist chine and Vee Hull–it’s going to be a great performer.”
The 211 is 20’ 9” LOA, with a beam of 102” and is rated for up to 150 horsepower. Fuel Capacity is 66 gallons. Passenger capacity is 10 persons. Deadrise at bow entry is 37 degrees with the aft deadrise being 14 degrees.
The 211 Coastal is loaded with features for exceptional fishability while the 211 Angler has additional features for pleasure boating such as a newly designed acrylic swim platform, Sunbrella® Bimini top with ball and socket hardware, and an Infinity® stereo system with Bluetooth® preset capability and 2 speakers.
Professional and sport fishermen will appreciate the bow to stern standard features of the 211 as well as a long list of options for individual customization. There is a 27-gallon rear livewell and a 13-gallon livewell/baitwell located in the console. There are a total of 12-rod holders: 6 vertical in the console, 2 for trolling flush in the aft, 2 port and 2 starboard in the gunnels.
Below the bow deck seats there are 2 insulated fish boxes with overboard drains. A 15-gallon bow cooler is insulated and has a lid with a tight seal to keep your ice “ice” during those hot summer days.
The unique aft deck doubles as a rear casting/fishing deck and 3-across seating by flipping up the 3 jump seats. When it is time to fish again, the seats quickly convert back to the fishing deck by simply folding down the jump seats. Space under the jump seats is utilized including battery storage under the starboard jump seat, cast net storage under the portside jump seat and a 27-gallon aerated release well under the center jump seat.
The front casting platform has a lot of space and can also receive an optional foot or hand control Minn Kota® electric trolling motor.
When stowed in the lower position, an optional bow table makes a large casting deck or sun lounge when the optional bow filler cushion is added. In the raised position the table makes a comfortable place to have your lunch and a cold drink.
Also available is an optional bow-casting chair with a removable pedestal and flush mount stainless steel base with a brass insert that allows the pedestal to be screwed in by hand for safety. The anchor, line and chain are stowed in a flush mounted anchor locker tooled into the bow’s deck for an attractive and secure storage.
Convert the family style fishing boat to a serious fishing machine by unsnapping the bow cushions. This also makes cleanup easy after a full day on the water.
In the cockpit at the captain’s station there is a leaning post with a 94-quart Igloo® cooler nestled underneath. The newly styled console is tooled to receive the sculptured gauge panel. The instrument panel consists of a speedometer, tachometer and fuel gauge. The switch panel includes waterproof stainless steel switches with circuit breakers. The console is topped off with an attractive curved windshield and fold down grab rail. A stainless steel steering wheel with BayStar™ Pro Hydraulic Steering helm is also standard (on 150HP model). Forward in the console is a passenger seat with integrated port and starboard grab handles. Under that seat is a 13-gallon aerated livewell. With the larger head console option, boaters can enjoy the privacy of a dressing room with more storage that can also receive an optional portable toilet. This option also includes a compass, lighted drink holders and footrest. Come back Texas Marine today and check out one of these amazing new boats, you will be glad you did.
