The new SeaVee Boat building facility was constructed in 2020 where see SeaVee now builds an award-winning line up of built-to-order center console sport fishing boats available with a wide array of features and options. Viewers of this video will learn about SeaVee's build process and how owners are able to select a boat model, then practically everything else - including the type of power and electronics, creature comforts and fishing features - are customized to individual boating and fishing preferences.

Every new SeaVee boat that is constructed spends up to 10 days in the mold, binding the hull, stringers and interior liner together permanently. See what makes SeaVee tick in this extensive, detailed video.

Originally founded in 1974 by Miami native Captain Don McGee, SeaVee Boats was born from the demand for a boat capable of withstanding the most rigorous fishing experience. SeaVee’s unique, high quality boats quickly developed a devoted customer base. Ariel Pared discovered SeaVee in 1993 when he ordered his first boat from the company. Captain Don quickly sparked his interest and imagination as he included Ariel in the creation process of his boat; allowing for multiple opportunities to customize certain aspects of the boat.
