Collingwood, Ontario, September 20, 2021 – The Limestone Boat Company Limited (“Limestone”) (TSXV: BOAT) – owner and builder of Aquasport Boats, Limestone® Boats and Boca Bay Boats – has unveiled an all-new dual console model, the Limestone® Boats L-290DC.
Limestone® Boats is a heritage brand recently re-launched with new ownership, ideals and a revamped model lineup. This addition of the 29-foot dual console adds another flagship model to the lineup and complements the current L-290CD Cuddy Cabin Day Boat & Fish Boat Arrangements.
“When we relaunched the Limestone® Boats brand, we had plans all along to bring out a dual console model that would promote all the highlights that Limestones have been known for throughout the brand’s heritage; big water performance, quality, functionality and family-friendly features that appeal to multi-generational boaters, alongside the idea that a premier, seaworthy dual console model would further help us expand our opportunities in additional markets from the Great Lakes to the South,” said Limestone Boat Company CEO Scott Hanson.
“From a design perspective, we wanted to build upon what world-renowned designer Mark Ellis began 35 years ago,” added Hanson. “We consulted with Mark, and then set a course to bring an all-new design to a model worthy of the Limestone name, and I could not be prouder of our engineering and design team for their accomplishments.”
The L-290DC has a length of 29’ 3” and a beam of 11’ 10.8”. Its base power is twin 250 HP engines, with Maximum HP being twin 300’s. The model has a powder coated fiberglass hardtop frame with dual opening vents, recessed speakers, LED spreader lights and courtesy lights; a fiberglass windshield frame with tempered glass; a wet bar with Corian countertop, sink and removable 65-qt cooler; a spacious head with quarter berth; and luxurious upholstery throughout with flexible seating options to maximize sociability, use of space and comfort.
“We felt it was important for the integration of a spacious head area for our multi-generational customers not only for convenience on the water but also to help them extend their time out boating, so we engineered that space to also have a counter and sink, storage, quarter berth, LED courtesy lighting, opening privacy skylight and an electric head with inline macerator and deck pump out,” Hanson continued. “There’s also a 30-gallon freshwater tank.”
“From a sociability standpoint, we designed the model to have numerous comfortable areas around the deck,” added Hanson. “You can relax or entertain in the bow area with our convertible lounge and table, enjoy a snack or meal at the portside L-shaped lounge seating area complete with storage underneath, or take in the view from one or both of the dual fold-down transom bench seats. There’s also a double wide helm seat with independent flip-up bolsters, flip down arm rests, cup holders and footrests for the captain and first mate, child or grandchild.”
Other notable standard features onboard include a portside dive door with removable telescoping ladder; integrated swim platform with telescoping ladder; anchor locker with stem-mounted anchor windlass with remote helm switch; 12V and USB outlets; power assisted steering; mahogany steering wheel; starboard windshield wiper with fresh water reservoir; cockpit coaming bolsters; raw water washdown and a freshwater shower; two large fish boxes totaling a combined 74 gallons; and stereo with Bluetooth and speakers to name a few.
Notable options on the L-290DC include air conditioning at the helm and in the head area; hot water heater, underwater lights, ski pylon; removable cockpit table with synthetic teak; summer kitchen with sink, refrigerator, and grill; stand-alone butane canister grill; SureShade system for aft/ cockpit shading/ protection; synthetic teak decking; and electronics.
