Smoker Craft 162 Pro Angler XL Performance Data


  • Twice-baked urethane paint job over an aluminum hull.

  • Lifetime-guaranteed pressure-treated ply decking, with a non-skid coating.

  • Heavy-duty carpet carries a five-year warranty.


  • Fuel economy is excellent with better than seven miles to the gallon, at cruising speeds in the mid and upper 20’s.

  • Sharp entry handles waves well.


  • Crank the wheel hard-over at high speeds, and this hull grabs and banks like it’s on rails – sweet!

  • Watch out for the safety lanyard when reaching changing speeds; it’s position causes it to drape across the throttle at times.

  • Whopping 25-gallon livewell in the foredeck has enough volume to support a week’s supply of bait.

  • Love the comfy seats.
