Manufacturer Info



These boats have a well-deserved reputation for being over-built, and designed to take on sea conditions that would make lesser boats stay at the dock. Their deep-V hull designs offer Carolina flare and dramatic deadrise, while the hull construction is solid fiberglass which is significantly thicker than the norm. As a result these boats are unusually heavy, and although that means they aren’t the fastest on the water, they’re able to bull their way through rough sea conditions while keeping passengers comfortable and safe. Sportfishermen, in particular, will like these boats, which are outfitted specifically for inshore and offshore angling.
