    Laguna C-240 SC Line Drawing


    Captain's Report

    Supercharged and Packed with Features:Laguna C-240 SCBy Capt. Rob SmithSunny South Florida proved to be a great place to test the Laguna C-240 SC. All I was missing was time and bait to bring some great Florida seafood home! The C-240 SC is a complete package with a boat/motor and trailer which leaves little to add. Stop at the local filling station, add the ice, beverages and snacks; fill the tank and buy some bait and you are ready to roll. Laguna has gone to great lengths to be sure you don’t need to buy a bunch of items to make this boat fishing-ready, yet they left space to add some personal touches such as a GPS mapping system.Quality ConstructionLaguna protects the hull with vinylester barrier coatings, uses no-wood construction and delivers a limited lifetime hull warranty so you can rest assured for many years to come. This boat is built with upright, level flotation and for comfort, they have a Deep-V design with Carolina flare and 18 degrees of deadrise at the transom.Fishing FeaturesThe C-240 SC shows her fishability with a spacious raised casting deck. At the bow is a dedicated anchor pop-up cleat and locker. All horizontal surfaces have a sure-grip coating for a better hold even when wet. All lockers are finished on the inside and even the bottoms of the lids for easy maintenance. A large insulated fish box is located under the casting deck and the recessed bow rails make sure the grab rails don’t impede on your fishing when the big one strikes. In addition to the fish box, there is an additional in-floor storage box perfect for storing gear and a console seat with storage compartment. I thought the lid to the storage in the console seat was a bit small, but hey, just put small stuff in it!At the HelmI really liked the frameless wrap-around windshield with black accent stripe at the bottom. This allows maximum visibility for the driver and the accent stripe covers a spot that more often than not has an unsightly line of dust and debris trapped in it. Another handy standard on the C-240 is the t-top with canvas top. This heavy aluminum frame provides you with excellent hand-holds all the way around, extra rocket launcher style rod holders and lights across the back, and an electronics box underneath. Talk about great protection and added equipment room in one! It is even outrigger ready with reinforced pads for the outriggers. The deluxe features a Richie compass on top, standard Mercury SmartCraft SC1000 digital gauges, water resistant lighted switches with push-button breakers, and a 12 volt socket for portable gear. To the right of the helm is a huge 18”x15” white space for added gear such as a flat panel chartplotter or fishfinder. With the Verado strapped on the back, you have Mercury’s Digital Throttle and Shift which makes driving so much more fun. Steering is power assisted with a cast stainless three-spoke wheel complete with turning knob for close quarters maneuvering. Inside the helm is a large compartment that is ready to keep a Porta-Potti or to store with essential long-range fishing gear. Panels allow easy access to all the helm connections and the floor is drained.In the Cockpit The back of the leaning post has a great grab rail for the person who loves to stand behind you and chat on the way, as well as another four rocket launcher rod holders. Below, you can add a large carry-on cooler for more beverages or for the fish that don’t fit up front. The cockpit offers a large 84”x68” space for serious fishing. The gunwale tops feature two rod holders a side, rod racks below with a good toe rail and cockpit bolsters. On each corner of the stern are 20 gallon livewells so you can carry two different types of bait. In the engine splash-well is a raw water connection to rinse off the cockpit after a day of fishing and a hinged access panel to get to the pumps and shut-offs.Specifications & PerformanceThe C-240 SC measures 23’8” length overall with a beam width of 8’6”. She weighs approximately 3000 lbs dry and is rated for the standard 225-hp Mercury Verado Supercharged engine. She carries 121 gallons of fuel and only draws 15” when the engine is trimmed all the way up.I tested on the IntraCoastal Waterway in South Florida and found the C-240 SC a nimble, easy-to-handle ride that took the heavy boat traffic with ease. Turns were smooth and dry and the ride was comfortable. On test day we the C-240 SC cruised most economically turning 3500 rpm at 23mph for a range of 303 miles on a full tank. When pushed to the limits she hit a top speed of 43.9 mph turning 5600 rpm. She was out of the hole in only 3.7 seconds and up to 30 mph in only 7.9 seconds.For serious offshore fishing, Laguna has put a package together that not only complete, but affordable.
