Boat Reviews By Owners

2002 -- 17' 9" CAPE HORN

Model: Center Console

Cockpit: Boat is called a 17' but is closer to 18'. Has a wide beam of 8'1". visibility is excellent. this is a straight forward fishing boat and it serves its purpose well.


Construction: You won't find a more solid boat than the Cape Horn. Definitely unsinkable. On my second trip out, I forgot to put the plug in and never noticed it until I got back to the boat ramp 3 hours later. Has a large fishbox and a 15 gallon livewell.

Handling: Handles well in rough waters. Has no feedback steering which is a big plus. Handles very well at cruising speed. I've had mine in the gulf quite a few times and had no problems.

Engine Room: Max engine rating is 140 HP. I've got a 125 mercury on my boat and it tops out at around 40 miles per hour. Cruises around 35 at 3/4 throttle.

General Comments: This is a pure, no nonsense fishing boat. This is not a boat for the casual boater looking to just cruise the lake on the weekend.
