FinCraft 17 SC (2010-)

1 x 75-hp Mercury OptiMax

Brief Summary

Every time we look at a FinCraft, we react with a double-take to convince ourselves that yes, it is really a fiberglass boat. Its color makes it look like an aluminum boat…but then our eye picks up the gentle curve of its gunwales and rounded topsides and we realize that only fiberglass can make those kind of shapes. For years boat builders have told us that small fiberglass fishing boats can’t be competitive with aluminum because they are too heavy and costly. Now, along comes FinCraft to challenge the conventional wisdom. So how can they make fiberglass boats that cost less, and are you still getting the features that the aluminum counter-parts have?
