The new 182 Fisherman features the sweeping sheer line and high freeboard that delivers Wellcraft’s signature look, while offering optional seating for eight passengers, a 56-gallon fuel tank and 360-degree fishability.
At the bow, a large casting platform gives anglers the elevation they need, but opt for the Bow Seating or Mat packages to create a more family-friendly layout. Wellcraft installed an aquarium-style livewell beneath the foredeck, which distributes more weight forward and allows anglers to easily see the condition of liveys while underway.
In the cockpit, the 182F comes with a removable windshield for easy storage, a customizable dash and an inset footrest. Horizontal under-gunwale rod hangers stow tackle out of the way until needed. At the transom, port and starboard jump seats — with storage beneath — flank the splashwell.
Opt for a T-top to shade your crew on all-day adventures.
Ten color options are available, from black-and-red to seafoam green. The 182 can be powered by Mercury or Yamaha 90, 115 or 150 hp outboards.
