Online Field Report: Sea Fox Pro Series 286CC

 















Sea Fox unveiled its new Pro Series 286CC at the Miami International Boat Show. Plenty of fishermen-friendly features come standard on a hull and deck designed with computer-aided precision. Some standard features are hard top, captain's chairs with flip-down footrest, a 54-quart removable cooler, raw- and freshwater washdown, rigging sink, two-door tackle box and 45-gallon livewell.

The hardtop has a molded-in electronics box, two recessed spreader lights, seven rod holders, six flush-mounted white LED lights and two red LEDs, four 6-inch Clarion speakers, a misting system and flush-mounted switch panel.

“Safety, fishability, comfort and fuel economy all played a big role in the design of the 286CC,” said Jeff DeBar of Sea Fox.
