At 17 feet, its deck space was ample for at least three anglers. Its gelcoat glowed thanks to an optional metal-flake accent. Like other bass boats, this one had plush carpet, and when I stepped aboard, it kept the sound of footsteps in the boat instead of transmitting them to the fish. I'm no chipmunk in size, and yet the boat held its stance, giving me a secure feeling as I stepped from gunwale to gunwale and from bow to stern. Anglers could easily walk around in this boat for ideal casting positions. Livewells, electronics, trolling-motor batteries — even a built-in charger are all standard. This boat was fish ready.
