The 2015 NauticStar 203 DC is a deckboat that merges traditional space and design with the ride and handling of a deep-V runabout hull. The builder achieves this through a modified-V at the stern with a deadrise angle of 11-degrees that gradually increases to a 34-degree deep V at the bow. The design lets the 203 DC cut through chop with ease, while still allowing her access to shallow bodies of water. Wood-free construction paired with NauticStar’s one-piece foam stringer system results in a strong hull with a limited lifetime warranty. Her interior features a U-shaped bench seat that accommodates six adults, and an additional four in the bow. With a self-bailing cockpit and eight storage compartments, the end product is a spacious, well-designed boat that has the potential to last an owner for several generations.
