Boat Reviews By Owners
2005 -- 20' 6" SEA PRO
Cockpit: Plenty of room for 3-4 adults trolling and bottom fishing. However there is not a lot of room between the leaning post and rear of the boat.
Cabin: The center console cabin is large enough for a porta potty and enough room to change clothes or for storage.
Construction: After six months of ownership the center console fiberglass was laminating and peeling. The dealership covered the warranty work. Also, just about everywhere a stainless steel fitting met fiberglass it would spider crack, AND THIS IS ONLY AFTER SIX MONTHS OF MODERATE USAGE.
Handling: 1-2 FT seas, if you trim it right it will handle fine. However 3ft seas/chop plus and any cross wind, put on your swimming trunks. And God forbid you want to striper fish in the Chesapeake Bay in the winter. In 2-3 ft seas the boat has a loud hollow thud sound at speeds from 20mph plus. With the Yamaha 150 it would run 36mph at 4000rpm, And 48 at WOT(5200RPM).
Engine Room: My boat was powered with a 150 Yamaha 2 stroke. Absolutely a flawless motor, was probably the only good thing about the boat.
General Comments: Buyers beware, Sea Pro makes a boat that looks good however please don't waste your money. A few years back Sea Pro and other various manufacturers were bought out by Brunswick marine which has a well known reputation for making so called "entry level boats" another word for "junk". I no longer own my sea pro and in the future I will do more research and be more cautious before I purchase a boat.
