Boat Reviews By Owners
2008 -- 19' 7" SEA FOX
Model: 197 Center Console
Cockpit: Roomy for a Center Console of this size Very large Console for dry storage.
Construction: Seems OK. Ordered with bimini top and swim platform. Both are cheep. Swim platform ($250) came with one step ladder that was just about useless(not long enough). Removed it and installed longer ladder($85). Bimini top is nice size but made of thin material. Buy and install your own swim platform. Fit, finish, and wireing seem fine.
Handling: Handling and ride are excellent. Very dry ride. Had it offshore in 2-4 and windy and no spray got in the boat at all. Bow is low so it could plow through waves if they were close together like in an inlet. Pulls skiers and tubers fine.
Engine Room: Suzuki 140. Fantastic. Smooth and quiet. Fuel economy is incredible. 48 mph max speed and pulls 2 skiers fine.
General Comments: Use it to fish, dive, ski, and cruise. I built a portable rack to hold skies and stuff on the right side of the console. Works great. Lots of dry storage for a CC of this size. This was the biggest boat I was comfortable towing with my Minivan. Lots of boat for the money. Happy so far.
