Dual Console boats can be used for just about any on-the-water activity, as long as you choose wisely when outfitting them. If you plan to pull water skiers or wakeboarders, for example, make sure you opt for a tow bit or maybe even a tower. But if you also plan to fish, it should be a removable version. Anglers should also beware of hard-to-clean carpet in the cockpit, and instead choose bare non-skid fiberglass. Read the options list carefully, and don't forget about things like stereos, extra cushions, and cockpit tables - or livewells, raw water washdowns, and rodholders.
Most modern dual console boats of 21' or more have a head compartment in the passenger's side console. This naturally provides a lot of convenience. Because of the open nature of dual console boats, you'll get plenty of sun and salt air. The bow cockpit is usually great for lounging around, and many models also have passenger's side seats that fold down into sunpads. Thanks to the consoles, bow seating, in-deck boxes, and gunwale pockets, this type of boat often has as much or more dry stowage then either runabouts or center consoles.
These days, Dual Consoles's are available in much more diverse and larger sizes than they were just a few years ago. Some 30-somethings are even available, with under-the-deck cabins and gigantic sunpads.
