Two are certainly better than one, at least when it comes to side doors. The side entry doors are a versatile feature that will quickly become one of your favorites and you'll love the ability to board from either side. Our side entry doors are part of the hull and deck mold. We designed them in this way to guarantee that they have the necessary structural reinforcements needed. Our stringer system supports the door and a large heavy duty hinge hangs the door.
For extra added comfort when fishing, the cockpit bolster cushions provide a nice soft surface to push your knees and legs into when reaching into the water or fighting a fish.

Under Gunwale Reel Pads
Helps prevent damage to reels while inside the under gunwale rod racks and prevents any scratching of the fiberglass in this tight space area.
Port & Starboard Toe Rail
Located under the gunwale rod racks, the toe rail is designed as a brace point when heeling over the side of the boat to gaff or bring in a fish. You slide your toes under the bar and in conjunction with the bolster cushion, it provides a sturdy brace for your legs, even if the deck is wet or slippery.

Hard-Top D-tubing Frame Structure
The 6-legged frame swoops seamlessly from the console up to the top and the design gives it immense structural stability. The class-first D-Tubing structure is not cut and welded as typically done, but rather it is bent and extruded out of a single piece of D-Tubing.

Matching Hard-Top Underside Color

Large Horizontal Window w/ Curtain

The included bow bolsters on this boat serve double duty. When the bow cushion bottoms are on, they provide a soft cushion to rest your back but when the boat is set for fishing, they double as knee and leg pads when fighting a fish up front.
Actuated Bow Sun Deck / Table
A large electronically actuated table is the center piece. There are 3 main functions for this table. At the top position, it serves as a table. Lower it to the middle position and snap-in the additional cushion for the sun deck function. When not in use, lower it flush to the floor for an obstruction-free deck.

Interior LED Lighting Package

Pull Up Cleats
High quality Gemlux pull-up cleats are standard throughout the boat. They offer a flush installation and very smooth operation.
Self Bailing Cockpit
This important safety feature allows any water on the deck to drain overboard and not into the bilge area. Any water that seeps into the bilge, can only be pumped out by the bilge pump, which is slow at draining large amounts of water. All Sportsman Boats have a collector box drainage system that ties in all drains from the deck and redirects the water directly overboard without mechanical assistance.
Grip Tex Yacht Style Non-Skid
This texture is applied to the deck and step areas for a uniform random non-skid coat. This type of non-skid is not patterned and is easy to repair should it ever get chipped or damaged.
