The Polar series of small center consoles is built by Dynasty Boats, a division of Godfrey Marine, to compliment their popular Polar bay boats and flats boats. Though it's just a hair over 21 feet long, this rugged deep v-hull has a lot of nifty features you'd expect to find only on a bigger boat, not to mention a well built hull with an integrated swim platform. This model happened to be powered by the new Bombardier Evinrude 200 hp Ficht Ram injection outboard, though it's more often sold with a Yamaha and other manufacturers' outboards are available.

The aft cockpit features a deep cockpit with thigh-high bolsters, storage for four rods under each gunwale, and a deep baitwell across the transom that doubles as a small bench seat. The leaning post at the helm has tackle drawers and a large Igloo cooler underneath. The helm has a tall dash with lots of room for electronics display and a panel unscrews for relatively easy access from inside the console. There's just room for a portable toilet in there, but enough room at that. There's a dry storage locker under the bench seat forward of the console, a deep fish locker under the sole up there, and the deck is stepped up for a raised casting platform. The bow rail is nice and low and the welded aluminum T-top is standard.

Tooling around the shallows of Biscayne Bay at the Miami Boat Show, I was impressed with how the boat came swiftly up onto plane in under four seconds and gave a top speed of upwards of 50 mph. The ride was soft and dry, taking wakes with ease and tracking straight and true.
