Hurricane has long been the industry leader in deckboats. This is the company that started the deckboat concept over two decades ago. The idea was simply to make a boat that was affordable, maximized interior seating space, had a deck low to the water so the boat could be boarded from a beach at the bow, and from the water at the stern. It’s an idea that took off and now nearly every sportboat builder has its own version of one, but Hurricane still makes more different variations on a theme with 26 different models. The SunDeck Sport SS 201 OB is a perfect example of why the concept is so popular.
