WELLCRAFT 182 FISH­ER­MAN

Sport Fishing - - NEW BOATS - BY CHRIS WOOD­WARD

THE NEW 182 FISH­ER­MAN fea­tures the sweep­ing sheer line and high free­board that de­liv­ers Wellcraft’s sig­na­ture look, while of­fer­ing op­tional seat­ing for eight pas­sen­gers, a 56-gal­lon fuel tank and 360-de­gree fisha­bil­ity.

At the bow, a large cast­ing plat­form gives an­glers the el­e­va­tion they need, but opt for the Bow Seat­ing or Mat pack­ages to cre­ate a more fam­ily-friendly lay­out. Wellcraft in­stalled an aquar­i­um­style livewell be­neath the bow deck, which dis­trib­utes more weight for­ward and al­lows an­glers to eas­ily see the con­di­tion of liveys while un­der­way.

In the cock­pit, the 182F comes with a re­mov­able wind­shield for easy stor­age, a cus­tom­iz­a­ble dash and an in­set footrest. Hor­i­zon­tal un­der-gun­wale rod hang­ers stow tackle out of the way un­til needed. At the tran­som, port and star­board jump seats — with stor­age be­neath — flank the splash­well. Opt for a T-top to shade your crew on all-day ad­ven­tures.

Ten color op­tions are avail­able, from black-and-red to seafoam green. The 182 can be pow­ered by Mer­cury or Yamaha 90, 115 or 150 hp out­boards.
