The Captain finds the sweet spot in an entry level Sea Fox.
The Captain has found a new ham-and-pineapple boat. Loved by all and fit for almost any occasion, the Sea Fox 186 Commander is the perfect Cape York crusader or perch predator.
Sea Fox have been building consoles for years – and every trick has been crammed into the 186. The Captain’s favourite feature is the chunky gunwale. You could practically waltz across the top while leading a barra – they’re seriously wide and sturdy.
The Carolina-Flared bow sweeps down to midships, but you don’t feel exposed to the elements. The high freeboard and self-draining decks inspire offshore missions. The 19-degree dead-rise finds the sweet spot between wave piercer and casting platform.
Ride is super-smooth and quiet, thanks to a foam-filled hull wrapped around a timber-free construction. What’s more, it’s washing up on Australian shores with the very appealing price tag from $56,950 – which includes a 150hp Evinrude and life-time hull warranty.
