The Sea Fox 236 DC (for Double Console) combines the most important attributes of a center-console fishing boat with those of a family bowrider to create a boat with a foot in each camp. The 23' 3" (7 m.) Sea Fox isn't the equal of the company's dedicated fishboats when it comes to towing baits -- Sea Fox is one of the most respected fishing boat builders around, so nobody expects that it would be. But while a hard-core center-console or walk-around fishing boat this size sacrifices all else to fishability, the 236 DC manages to incorporate plenty of creature comforts that should make Mom and the kids happy to be on board, even when Dad is trolling or casting. There's room for two to lounge in the forward cockpit to read or catch rays, and the back-to-back passenger seat unfolds to form a narrow but adequate sun bed when the lines have been reeled in. In short, the Sea Fox 236 DC wears two hats, neither one the height of fashion, but both will do the job.
