16.5′ Flats Fishing Boat
16.5′ Flats Fishing Boat – Custom Built Boat. This is an angler’s dream. With a top speed of 50 mph and a draft of 8 inches, this convenient size boat is designed to fish the shallow water flats in a hurry. The “cathedral arched” shape of the cockpit provides space not normally found in this size boat, seating seven people comfortably.
Plenty of dry storage is under seating and a 26 gallon live bait well is built into deck. The aerodynamic console design cuts down on drag experienced in the traditional “square” center console, increasing fuel efficiency. The flush deck spans 7.5 feet beam of this boat providing an super sturdy fishing platform. Fly fish rails are built in the foredeck while pop up cleats and fairleads hide for a flush deck. Flush lifting eyes make it convenient to load aboard larger yachts.
A polling platform is tucked nicely over the engine at an angle creating optimum balance and polling leverage. The built in ladder is designed for easy climbing and the platform is decked with rich teak. Poll holders are found in the deck, on the platform and on the back of the cockpit seat.
