The 10-passenger 2302 LDC touts a spacious 22’ 3” LOA and easily towable 8’ 6” beam and is rated for up to 250 HP. The port side console has a newly designed head compartment with LED lighting that can accommodate an optional portable toilet. The well-appointed helm features a newly designed dash area with room for up to 9” electronics. It also includes an LED lit push-button switch panel, Yamaha 6YC digital gauge; and Infinity® stereo with Bluetooth, preset capability, and 4 speakers. The captain’s seat is adjustable and has a flip-up bolster and dual armrests while the passenger seat features ample storage underneath with a flip-flop backrest for facing forward or aft. When in the aft facing position, a flip-up cushion converts the port aft area to a chaise lounge that is comfortable for the entire family.

Yamaha Marine1 tested the 2302 LDC and produced some outstanding performance results. Powered with a four stroke F200XB the boat planned in 3.64 seconds had a top speed of 47.2 MPH with a fuel burn of only 5.66 MPG at cruise. It has a fuel capacity of *85 gallons. Teleflex SeaStar® Pro hydraulic steering with tilt is standard.

A beautifully contoured panoramic walk-thru windshield with a folding door separates the bow and cockpit. The plush bow seats are hinged and flip-up to reveal 27-gallon storage boxes on both the port and starboard side. An optional bow filler cushion can be added to form a plush sundeck. Between the consoles, there is a fully fiberglass finished ski locker that also serves as dedicated rod storage for up to five rods. With the acrylic table option, a base is included in the bow and stern for multiple mounting locations.

The cockpit features the aft 3-across seating that is the trademark of the Legacy series. The starboard seat has battery storage while the other 2 seats conceal a 42-gallon fish box with overboard drains. The starboard seat-back opens for walk-thru transom which also has a 3-step boarding ladder with SeaDek® on the landing and a freshwater transom shower. A 30-gallon aerated livewell is located in the port aft area within an easy arm’s reach. The galley has a freshwater pressurized sink with Corian top and stainless steel drink holders.
