22′ Competition Fishing Boat At Philly Boat Show

News / 4:11 pm / by Manny

Our 22′ made an appearance at the Philly boat show.  While we are not extremely popular in the Northeast, folks are starting to realize the benefits of our formula that include 3 piece construction, flat deck and 24.5 degree deadrise.

We heard that people were saying the boat needs more seating…  Since all our boats are semi custom, you are free to add seating where you see fit, however as a serious fisherman we recommend marine bean bags and to keep the boat seating minimal.

Here are some pictures from the show:

Best Fishing Boats For The Money 2015

News / 8:28 pm / by Manny

ReelReports.com has recently named our 25′ Competition, the best fishing boat for the money. The test was done with a single engine Yamaha 300hp. With 3 piece construction and a flat deck from bow to stern, ReelReports.com stated that we build a hardcore fishing machine at a great price. We ran a full load of gear and fuel during the test to give ReelReports.com real numbers and we exceeded their expectations.

Here is a look at our 25′ with single 300.

We had the opportunity to build another boat from long time customer Arthur. This boat features many custom options per his specs. The single 300 Yamaha is a great fit and you can see how high the boat floats with no squat. Here is a video pre-delivery.

As with all builds are standard 3 piece construction, flat deck and 24.5 degree deadrise is our staple.

Our 25′ sport fishing boat can be outfitted with any options and engine you choose. Leave it up to us to ensure the boat is perfectly balanced with weight and prop of the options you desire. In this build, our customer chose a 300hp Evinrude Etec. The Etec is one of the last 2 stroke engines available on the market. The extra torque is quite amazing and it actually runs very quite, almost comparable to a 4 stroke engine.  Enjoy the pictures.

 

Best 25 Foot Live Baiting Boat Reborn

News / 10:04 pm / by Manny

As a semi-custom fishing boat builder, we get a lot of special request from hardcore fisherman across the nation. With a proven formula of a flat deck, 3-piece construction and 24 degree deadrise, our owners have a huge head start on what they are looking for.

In a custom build, we had a customer who was extremely fond of the popular 90’s live baiting boats such as the 25′ SeaVee, 25′ Whitewater, 23 Formula, Potter Built 25′ SeaCraft, 25 Contender, 27 Conch and many others with similar lines. One thing that he was really set on was losing the bracket and adding a jackplate for a 300 Yamaha. This would allow him to control the height of the engine and creep into the shallows of Miami to chase pilchards.   As a live bait fisherman, you have a huge advantage if you can get to the bait where the birds are. And sometimes they are in less than 18′ inches of water.

Another modification we did to this boat was to put as much livewell space as possible without sacrificing the ride of the boat. We went ahead and put a small fuel tank into the boat and made room for a livewell in front of the console.  This along with our leaning post livewell and standard transom livewell, allowed for him to hold a ton of bait and hold it very well by implementing livewell clams the right way and filling to the lid making the well pressurized.  This ensures there is less slosh when running with the baits.

Today, he has a completely wood free modern day boat that is extremely efficient even when holding a full load of baits and gear. If you are looking to build a live bait fishing machine, please call us and we can discuss the modifications that fit your needs.  We get a lot of unique request and we can steer your towards the best options as to not sacrifice the unique ride quality and dryness of our 25′ classic.
