FinCraft 17 DC (2010-)

1 x 90-hp Mercury OptiMax

Brief Summary

FinCraft is breaking into the freshwater fishing boat market with a fiberglass boat that is priced low in order to compete with aluminum boats, but the company has not cheaped-out on the build. For the most part, the hardware, equipment, and accessories are as good as those used on most ''up-market'' boats in class. In some cases, such as the pedestal seating, the equipment provided is actually far better than what you will find on many higher-priced boats. We also like the high windscreen that will keep the chill off, and is definitely preferable to the small plastic windscreens seen on many dual console boats in this class. The FinCraft 17 DC is priced at $18,064 MSRP with trailer and 50-hp outboard. The boat can handle up to 115-hp max, so match the engine to your planned use and purse.
