Wellcraft, with six decades on the water, knows that like the proverbial baseball cap, one size — and one type — doesn’t fit all. “Fits most” is the best one can do, and with boats, that’s not good enough for this company.
So, the Wellcraft brand includes four strong lines: Fisherman, Scarab Offshore, Sportsman and Coastal, 18 to 35 feet long, all-business fishing craft to luxurious big-water boats.
The Fisherman series comprises center console boats with big baitwells and fish boxes, abundant seating, sensible and secure rod storage — all in a stable, smooth-performing boat.
Family time? The Sportsman Series of dual consoles seamlessly blends fishing functionality and creature-comfort amenities in boats great for watersports and cruising as well as fishing.
Things like a built-in 23-gallon baitwell/livewell, and lots of horizontal and vertical rod storage and rod holders. A diamond-pattern anti-skid surface perfect for fish-chasing dances.
Anglers are sure to smile too at the five-gallon pail in its built-in holder, ready for any of the many uses — from bait to trash to extra drinks on ice — of these versatile containers. A carry-on cooler is ideal for packing sandwiches, drinks and snacks.
The all-business helm is served by a bench seat with rod holders on its back surface. Step down into the cockpit to access a portable head. For strength and easy upkeep, there’s lots of stainless steel in fittings and features.
