Trophy 2052 WA L/X

1 x 210-hp Mercury EFI gasoline sterndrive

Brief Summary

Designed for the inshore fisherman, this Trophy also has the stamina to charge out to the offshore grounds while providing good comfort.

Key Features

The 2052 is a tight single stern drive 21’ package that features a full fiberglass self-bailing cockpit liner with fully instrumentated helm and a surprisingly comfortable cabin with a portable toilet. Usually seen on larger boats, the 2052 sports a 33-quart aerated bait well and twin, draining 32 quart integrated fish wells. There’s plenty of rod stowage and even a molded-in knife stowage station. All her walk-on surfaces feature a workboat-like, molded-in diamond-pattern nonslip surface.

Captain's Report

With her distinctive flared bow, that will deflect spray in an offshore chop and modified-V 19-degree transom deadrise, this Trophy has the brawn to fish anywhere. The interior cockpit coamings are lined with protective vinyl cushioning and a hefty through-bolted stainless-steel bow rail will meet most of us at better than waist high. Her walkaround side decks are recessed so you can concentrate on your tackle rather than staying aboard.
The 2050’s molded fiberglass console as well as her aluminum dash panel has been treated for non-glare. Her engine options range from the standard 135-hp MerCruiser 3.0-liter Alpha One stern drive through a 190-hp 4.3-liter Merc and a 210-hp 4.3-liter EFI stern drive. An advantage of the 2052’s size is that she is trailable, and single and tandem axle galvanized trailers are available. With no structural wood aboard—she’s built with a cored fiberglass box beam stringer system—you can expect many years service and low maintenance.
When the fishing action eases off, the forward cabin offers a drop-down table that converts to a cushioned V-berth (there’s more stowage underneath) and a portable toilet. The 2052 is a tough, comfortable package that can bring home the meat.
