2024 Starweld Flex 19 DC Pro

The Flex 19 DC Pro blends high-quality construction with numerous fishing features.

With a lifetime warranty on the transom and decks, plus a full six-year warranty on the vinyl or carpet, anglers should know that they are considering a quality boat before they even lay eyes on the Starweld Flex 19 DC Pro. Of course, once you see this boat in person, the quality features jump out.

For instance, there are two livewells aboard this boat: a 12-gallon stern well and another well with a ­whopping 25-gallon capacity in the bow. The transom splash pan inhibits water from flowing up and into the boat. Also, large casting platforms and lockable rod storage won’t go unnoticed. We also suggest taking note of the Jensen stereo, the six drink holders, the use of circuit breakers, and the No Feedback tilt-wheel steering. Chrome bezeled gauges look great, and the illuminated switches make ­operating the accessories easier, even if you hit the launch ramp before dawn’s early light.

It might not be as easy to see, but Starweld’s construction is also worthy of your attention. The hull is all-welded from 0.100-gauge marine-grade aluminum. Injected foam flotation provides security and helps deliver a solid feel when underway. The full-length reverse chine of this boat should deliver quicker planing and a drier ride. And, for those times you might want to pursue cruising or watersports instead of fish, we think that the convertibility of the optional rear bench will prove a favorite feature. Just flip it up to reveal seats, and you are ready to roll.

Other available options include ­canvas, varying from a full enclosure to a Bimini top to a trailerable cover. The  Starweld Flex 19 DC Pro comes with the trolling-motor plug, and, if you choose, Starweld can install a quick-­disconnect 12-/24-volt trolling motor. The three-step boarding ladder is a feature that we recommend, both for swimming and watersports, as well as for providing a ­secure means of reboarding. You can even order a RAM-mounted ­Humminbird fish finder installed from the factory. For a boat with top ­construction and versatile features, check out the Starweld Flex Pro 19 DC Pro.
