Where the Sportfish models are intended as full-on fishing boats, the Pioneer Islander 197 Center Console offers more creature comforts such as more seating and a wider helm console and windscreen for better weather protection. This 2015 Model is powered with the preferred Single Yamaha 150hp < 100 hours and comes in an attractive Light Sea Foam Green gelcoat color. The anodized aluminum T-Top with canvas cover is solidly built with rocket launcher and spreader light. 12/24-volt electric trolling motor plug, salt-water deck wash, pop-up fender holders, dual batteries with isolator switch, and a boarding platform and ladder are some of the extra features.

Innovative construction for maximum hull strength and safety.

Pioneer Boats are manufactured using the highest-grade products and materials. There is no wood used in the build process so the boats will last a very long time – so long in fact that Pioneer offers a seven-year transferable warranty.

High grade closed-cell foam is pressure injected into all vacant cavities within each boat to fill 90 per cent of the vacant air space between the hull and deck. This exceeds US Coast Guard flotation requirements and ensures the boats are unsinkable and feel solid and quiet underway.

Under the floor of each Pioneer a fiberglass stringer grid is bonded to the hull using a special process designed for maximum strength and adhesion, while the cockpit floor and transom has a PVC composite core material for strength, rigidity and reduced weight.

Pioneer also uses what the company calls a 'Reverse Cap Deck Adhesion Process' to join the hull to the deck. This involves bonding the deck to the hull while the hull is still in the mold. According to Pioneer, this technique gives each boat a water-tight, permanent bond and ensures all hulls are "true to form and will not separate".

Add to this the use of only the finest fittings and fixtures throughout, and you’ve got one beautifully crafted product.
