On The Water is proud to announce that NorthCoast Boats is the official boat sponsor of the 2018 Striper Cup, the largest saltwater tournament in the Northeast. Every adult participant in the 2018 Striper Cup will have the chance to win a NorthCoast Boats’ new 210 Center Console at StriperFest, the annual fishing celebration that attracts thousands of fishermen and their families to Cape Cod in September.

NorthCoast Center Console

“We’re proud to partner with a company that has deep roots in New England’s boat-building tradition,” said Chris Megan, publisher and owner of On the Water. “NorthCoast has a rock-solid reputation for building quality boats that are designed, first and foremost, for fishing the demanding waters of the Northeast.”

The President/Owner of NorthCoast Boats, Jose C. DaPonte, has been building quality boats since the early 1970s and is regarded as one of the foremost authorities in composite boat building. At their production facility in Bristol, Rhode Island, NorthCoast Boats designs and builds rugged, practical fishing boats that offer a “no fluff” alternative to luxury center console and cabin boats.

“The Striper Cup Tournament has always been a favorite of ours at NorthCoast,” said DaPonte. “We fish hard and understand the satisfaction fishermen experience from having a good fish on the line and a good boat under their feet. We’re honored to be building a great fishing boat for this year’s Grand Prize.”

The NorthCoast 210 center console will be outfitted with a full suite of Simrad electronics and a powerful Yamaha engine. Every adult Striper Cup participant who is present at the StriperFest celebration, held Saturday, September 29, at Falmouth Harbor on Cape Cod, can enter to win the grand prize – it’s not even necessary to weigh in a fish to drive away towing a brand-new NorthCoast boat!
