No question, the 2300SC from Maxum is a looker. The manufacturer managed to blend sport-boat lines with cruiser sophistication into the 23-foot-by-10-inch long, 8-foot-by-5-inch wide runabout. But thanks to a bounty of real-world features, the 2300SC's function is a match for its form.
In the cabin, the facing lounges and dinette setup converts to a V-berth with filler cushion, and a deck hatch is provided for cabin ventilation. The galley has a sink and a cabinet with a pullout cooler. Overhead lights provide illumination after dark, and two speakers dialed into the stereo in the cockpit provide the tunes. Also included is a portable head.
Above deck, the cockpit has a back-to-back seat, which converts to a sun pad, to port. Opposite that is the driver's bucket seat and the helm station. Helm highlights include a tilt steering wheel complete analog instrumentation. All the way aft is a three- to four-person bench seat. Snap-in carpet covers the cockpit sole.
Engine packages from 220 to 310 horsepower are offered for the 4,188-pound boat. Fuel capacity is 70 gallons. Freshwater capacity is 10 gallons.
