While the performance is proven, the numerous standard features make this sleek craft even more desirable. The large casting deck features an oversized fishbox and two 8-foot rod lockers. A 95 quart cooler with custom seat cushion rests in front of the console and dual 18-gallon baitwells mean there’s plenty of space for tournament winning redfish or an ample supply of live bait. The oversized Comfort Helm is one of the largest in this class and provides space for two flush mount 12-inch displays, yet is still easy to walk around. The design features intelligent placement of the steering wheel and throttle pad for the most convenient and ergonomic angle for operators. The windshield is also well thought out and is adjustable with a unique sliding track system. Furthermore, the dual console seats utilize a drop down bolster for superior comfort whether sitting or standing.
