Wellcraft 352 and 162 Fisherman
Wellcraft recently introduced a new flagship to its Fisherman line: the Wellcraft 352 Fisherman.
There’s some serious innovation built into the Wellcraft 352. That includes a T-top design that supports a second station up top with hinged feet so you can lower it to sneak under bridges. Access is easy with a well-designed pipework ladder.
Power choices include twin or triple packages with Yamaha 350-425s or 350-hp to 400-hp Mercury Verados. The 352 features plenty of seating options, fish and tackle boxes, a 35-gallon clear curved livewell, side and transom doors, and more. Inside the console is a bed, head, sink, and, potentially, a Seakeeper stabilizer.
The baby of the Fisherman line deserves a mention because it’s a different design that will
appeal to another part of the fishing spectrum. The trailerable 162 has a high freeboard and a hidden flange under the rub rail that deflects spray. This flange also creates a handhold along the hull so you can move her along a trailer or sandbar with ease. The 162 has five seats plus a convertible seat/casting platform. The removable windshield allows the boat to stow neatly in a garage on the trailer that comes standard.
