Fishing & Cruising Boats
Quality………. is our Promise
Fishing & Cruising Boats
KenCraft boats are designed to maximize the best of both worlds while you are enjoying your time on the water. The best of both worlds refers to designing a boat that is both functional from a fishing standpoint, while offering all the amenities the family is looking for in a cruising boat. From our Bay Rider flat bottoms and Inshore Bay Boats, to our Challenger line of V-Bottom boats, we offer the amenities you are searching for to make your boat purchase serve dual purposes.
Our fishing design team has added the features you demand. From the bow to the stern, we design our layouts to maximize the fisherman’s ability to easily maneuver around the entire boat while fighting that fish in rough seas.
We offer large live wells on most of our hulls that can accommodate larger fish for release or handling 3-4 dozen of your favorite baitfish for that offshore trip.
We place stainless rod holders on the gunwale as a standard feature along with rod holders on the leaning post seat. We also install rod holders along the back edge of our T Tops as a standard addition as well. When you are fishing, you will never lack for a place to store your rod whether you are actively fishing or cruising back to the dock after a day on the water.
You can never have enough storage for fish or your gear on a boat. We have designed large forward seating boxes that are insulated for fish or drinks that drain overboard. Our Center Console boats have an additional in floor fish box/cooler that will hold the largest of fish or gear. The Challenger 21 has a 315 quart capacity and our Challenger 240 has 614 quart capacity. Our Bay Rider Bay and Flat Bottom Forward Seating models have 71 quart capacity in each of the front boxes. The Bay Rider Flat Bottom has additional 46 cubic feet of storage in the sealed front compartment.
WALK DOWN CONSOLE WITH ROOM FOR HEAD
In our 21 and 24 Center Console, we designed plenty of room to allow for installation of a portable Head, yet still have room to maneuver inside the console. This design also allows for easy access to our neatly rigged systems on your boat.
You can cruise the waters in style in a KenCraft. We have Forward Seating that doubles as a fish box/storage or a drink cooler because all of our boxes are fully foamed for good insulation. Ease of maneuverability is important in a boat, and in a KenCraft you can walk between the boxes to gain access to the front storage compartment and front deck unlike most competitors.
REAR JUMPSEATS AND CUP HOLDERS
Most all of our boats offer rear seating to accommodate larger crowds when you want to cruise the waters with your KenCraft. You can relax in comfort with ergonomically placed back rests offering maximum support. We did not forget the all-important cup holders on our boats. They are strategically located at every seat on the boat so your favorite beverage is never far away, no matter where you sit inside our boats.
