FinCraft 1850 a Solid Family Boat
August 4, 2010
FinCraft’s new 185 DC is a Midwestern-style fishing boat that blends hardcore angling features for inshore use with family amenities like a full windshield, comfortable seating for 6, and a stainless swim ladder.
The hull and its structural members are all-composite, manufactured in one piece in a closed mold by the company’s proprietary VEC (Virtually Engineered Composites) process. It carries a lifetime limited warranty. This package boat comes standard with a MinnKota bow-mount trolling motor, an aerated livewell and a Lowrance fishfinder. Power options include outboards up to 175 hp from Evinrude, Mercury, Suzuki, and Yamaha, but 90 to 115 hp should be plenty for general fishing/family use and good balance.
