This new 2019 228 Commander model from Sea Fox manages to check all the boxes. Looking for a comfortable family sport boat? Check. Looking for a fully equipped fishing boat? Check. Looking for a dry riding hull that can also slip onto a sandy beach for a picnic? Check.
There’s plenty to love wherever you look on this 22’4” beauty. Sea Fox’s well known bow cockpit is a comfortable place to ride, with sofa-like seating all around. Of course, many of those comfy seats open up to reveal all kinds of storage spaces beneath, and the removable center table is handy when it’s time to eat. Steel handrails and plenty of drink holders are additional amenities.
The Sea Fox ergonomic console has plenty of room to add whatever electronic screens you desire. The overhead Ultima hardtop not only provides sun protection, but is loaded with rod holders and a freshwater cooling spray system for those hot summer days. Sea Fox has hidden a small head compartment in the central console, which the family will appreciate.
Aft, fishermen will appreciate the pressurized aquarium livewell (with handy net compartment), the rod holders and even the thigh-high padding cushions on the side walls which come in handy when fighting a big fish. The aft bench seat has a walk-thru gate for access to the swim deck and aluminum ladder.
The power platform is designed to hold anything from 175 to 250 hp, all electronically controlled from the center console. And, just for fun, there is a great sound system on board, as well as pretty LED lighting for when the sun goes down.
It’s hard to find as many features in a big little boat like this one! Stop in soon and check it out.
