Join and boat reviewer Lenny Rudow for a walkthrough of a 2021 Parker 1801 CC center console boat from stern to bow in the video below.


Vessel Overview

With serious hardware onboard, this self-bailing boat has a spacious cockpit that features a non-skid surface, filled with flotation foam. She comes with an aluminum Load Rite trailer standard, with a collapsible tongue and is set up out of the box for fishing.

At The Helm

That previously mentioned hardware includes a heavy duty leaning post with rocket launchers and a helm station that feels like it's aboard a much bigger boat. Standard features include Garmin 64CV Chartplotter/Sonar Combo w/Transducer at the main controls.

In The Cockpit

This fishing boat definitely has some nice features anglers will appreciate. One thing that stands out is the attention to detail not commonly seen on boats of this size, price and class. The grab rails surround a sturdy windshield making for a comfortable, safe place to pilot the boat. This 18-footer is spacious with clever toe rails tucked on the sides under the gunwhales for locking your feet in while angling in rough weather and there are even built-in rulers on the toe rails. More standard features include stainless steel deck hardware and cleats, foredeck anchor locker, UFLEX steering, raw water washdown, rod storage, sound system, boarding platform with ladder, bilge pump w/float switch, compass, horn, stern jump seats (p & s) w/hinged Lids, cushions and backrests and more.

Bow Area

Up front is the boat is fairly standard but well built. There are built-in tackle boxes on the sides of the console, easy to access from the bow, or the rear. Up front there is a substantial livewell under the forward facing lounge chair. In the bow area you'll also find a fish box that can also be used for gear stowage.
