SeaVee Boats’ 430 Fish-Around is an exciting blend of center console fishing boat and express-style sport fisherman. The 360-degree walk-around design features a level deck without any steps from bow to stern. Measuring 43 feet long, the entire length is safely accessible to anglers in any sea conditions with thigh-high gunwales supporting you the entire way. Once up front, a 40-gallon integrated bait well eliminates the need for frequent trips to the stern.
A below-deck cabin features a dinette and galley to starboard, and the table lowers to create a guest berth. The galley features a sink, electric heating plate and refrigerator, with ample cabinet space. The master’s suite features a V-berth, closet and adjacent head. Two overhead skylight hatches invite plenty of light and serve as a pass-through for an innovative floor-mounted overnight rod storage system designed to hold your rigged rods. The head is accessible via the main cabin and features an electric head, sink and stand-up shower. Built at the Miami yard, the 430 Fish-Around is available with a variety of power systems including triple or quad outboards, traditional inboard power and Volvo IPS pod drives. Running quad Yamaha F350s, SeaVee projects a top speed near 60 mph. Quad Verado or triple Yamaha F350 are expected to yield speeds in the mid 50-mph range. (305) 759-6419; seaveeboats.com
