True to its family name, this model empowers you to take on adventures fearlessly and explore uncharted territory with confidence.

  • Innovative helm seat transforms from a captain’s chair into a leaning post or a vantage point for trolling with the push of a button.

  • Ample rod storage, a standard transom livewell and pump-out forward fishbox provide outstanding fishability.
