Boat Reviews By Owners
1997 -- 24' 1" WELLCRAFT
Model: Excel 23 Walkaround
Cockpit: Large cockpit, well equipped for fishing / relaxing / cruising. Good helm layout and visibility.
Cabin: Smallish cabin, very large V-berth, semi-enclosed toilet. Small "galley" with sink & alcohol stove. OK for two people for a few days.
Construction: Rock solid. Excellent fiberglass layup, strong deck/hull seam. Solid decks.
Handling: Very easy to launch. Good overall handling. Not a true deep-v, but decent for most conditions. Stable for fishing.
Engine Room: Evinrude 200 Ocean Pro. Very good match to the boat. Low maintenance carb engine.
General Comments: We fish and do a little cruising. This is an excellent west coast all-around boat. More geared to fishing, but that huge cockpit works well for anything. Lot's of neat built-in features, a very well thought out design.
