Manufacturer Info



The name may forever be linked to Sonny Crockett and his pastel-hued ‘80s-vintage Scarab, but Wellcraft has been crafting iconic American boats for over 50 years. Today’s Wellcraft still focuses on producing exciting designs with an emphasis on quality. From the familiar lines of the Scarab, to the Fisherman, Sportsman, and Coastal series, Wellcraft has blended fishing, fun, and family time into a distinctive line that proudly wears its badge of honor. Until recently a part of the Rec Boat Group, today Wellcraft is owned by Beneteau, one of the world's largest pleasureboat builders.

Boat Description

Fish on…and on and on – in this, the granddaddy of our Fisherman series. We don’t miss a trick on this model; it’s well organized, well made, and very handsomely appointed. Two forward fish boxes include overboard drains and sealed lids, a lighted baitwell (84 quart) has an overboard drain, and there are tackle boxes, a leaning post seat, a stately T-top, plus a self-contained head. You’ll find yourself spending all your best time on the water!
