SeaHunter Tournament 45

Game Changer

FSF Staff December 4, 2013

While twin outboard powered vessels were once the cream of the crop and highly desirable for their speed and reliability, things have changed in a big way. There’s currently a race to the top for the biggest and baddest center console, and at the moment it appears SeaHunter is leading the charge in a blaze of glory. Designed for highly competitive tournament anglers with a need for speed and comfort crossing long stretches of open water, the SeaHunter Tournament 45 features a massive deck layout for unobstructed fishability. While many center consoles boast deck space and storage capacity, few can match the superbly designed cabin that’s outfitted with a queen size berth, A/C, sink, head, TV and microwave.

SeaHunter Tournament 45

SeaHunter’s innovation and technology is based on a history of working in the aerospace industry with companies including Boeing, McDonnell Douglas and Lockheed Martin. Owning the largest, privately owned FAA repair facility in the United States, SeaHunter manufacturing is based upon composite training from world-class aerospace manufacturers. Never willing to sacrifice, all SeaHunter boats are built to extreme standards with the finest Kevlar, vinylester resin and carbon fiber, with proprietary laminate schedules resulting in the strongest hulls available. Have you seen the boat drop test?

With 60 degrees of deadrise at the bow and 24.5 degrees at the transom, the Tournament 45 will plow through the roughest seas at speeds upwards of 60 mph! From bow to stern, every aspect of this dream machine has been ergonomically engineered for functionality and safety. The boat features three massive livewells and plenty of seating options including standard helm captain chairs and a secondary row of seating for up to four additional passengers. It’s clear that a boat of such grand stature isn’t just popped out of the mold. Instead, each vessel is designed with high performance and owner experience at the forefront of every decision.
