Sea Vee 290B First Glance

New redesign of 29 center console features lighter, more-technical construction.

Sea Vee announced a redesign of its popular 29-foot V-hull with the introduction of the 290B. The 290B uses the company’s proprietary vacuum- assisted resin-transfer molding technology, which infuses the fully cored hull, stringers and bulkheads simultaneously. The stiffer build allows Sea Vee to reduce the number of stringers from four to two.

New, larger, epoxy-coated aluminum fuel tanks increase fuel capacity (now 251 gallons, up from 232).
