Front Runner started with the goal of building the kinds of boats the company’s owners had always wanted, setting a new bar for the offshore fishing industry. In the 39 CC, which features plenty of space above and below decks, plus a long list of options, it seems like they’ve built a pretty distinguished product.

Front Runner offers a variety of features that would easily accommodate both the tournament angler as well as the recreational boater with comfort and style.
The 39 CC boasts ample storage both above and below decks, whether you're going offshore for an extended trip or running over to the islands for a holiday, there's a spot for it all. Although Front Runner's standard options list is quite inclusive, you may want to add the extra Best Marine seachest to ensure you have very happy bait, 12v air conditioning system or perhaps a Seakeeper 3 to your boat.

The 39 CC is equipped with a large forward insulated fishbox, matching gelcoat is a popular option amongst those that are looking for a little extra detail. The 39 CC’s bow also includes a fortress anchor and freshwater coil hose (a Lewmar anchor windlass package is optional). Forward on the port and starboard side inner gunwales is the fender storage with receivers for Front Runner’s custom quick release fender storage system, in addition to receivers for storage purposes, there are receivers on the gunwales for ease of deployment without having to utilize a cleat. The lounger can be customized in three different configurations, including sun pad lounger (standard), dual insulated storage lockers with cooler forward , or just a large sunpad that will open to an insulated fishbox. The 39 CC’s design gives great flexibility to boat owners and their families.
The deck design features a single level deck to allow easy maneuvering around the boat. There are four in-deck fish boxes in the cockpit and two in both port and starboard side decks, three transom livewells, and a slide out cooler that comes standard and doubles as a mezzanine seat. Behind the helm is a large storage drawer with customizable drawer configuration.
According to Front Runner, the 39 CC’s cabin is large enough to fit 9 adults (Check out the video from when a squall came through at the Miami Boat Show.) and has headroom of 6’6” (1.98 m). Equipped with a stainless-steel sink, toilet and optional 12v air conditioning system, it’s designed for an overnight stay or a comfortable spot to get out of the elements. All of the boat’s batteries, battery switches, chargers and trim tab pumps are located in what Front Runner calls its “Pump Room,” moving them from the bilge to the cabin interior to promote greater longevity of the equipment.
All 39 CCs come with three livewells along the transom, two 65-gallon (246.05 L) wells on the port and starboard side, and one main 95-gallon (359.61 L) livewell in the center. There are two Best Marine sea chests with three pumps each, equipped with both hi- and low-speed pickups to ensure your flow is never interrupted. The sea chests also supply water to all onboard systems, including A/C, SeaKeeper and raw water.
With nearly 50 different options to choose from, the 39 CC can meet the needs and wants of any tournament angler or families needs. This includes everything from a full tower various tackle storage options, bow thruster or joystick availability, plus whatever creature comforts your family may need.
