The largest hull in Wellcraft's Fisherman model lineup, the 302 offers multiple fishing amenities while providing comfortable seating and relaxing options for families.

At the bow, a lounger fans out from the forward console and padded bench seating rims the bow. A padded transom bench and jump seat aft fold away when the cockpit is needed for fishing. Inside the console, an electric head, vanity and freshwater sink make full days on the water more feasible for all.

For anglers, twin 23-gallon livewells flank a tackle-rigging area along the transom bulkhead. The vessel also features four large, macerated fish boxes and rod holders throughout the cockpit, beneath the gunwales and in the standard hardtop.

In factory testing, the 302 with twin Mercury Verado 350s topped out at 56.7 mph, turning 6,250 rpm while attaining 0.9 mpg. At cruise, the boat runs 34.1 mph at 4,000 rpm, maintaining 1.4 mpg. The 302 supports up to 700 hp and comes with a 268-gallon fuel tank.
