Smalll Boat with Big Boat Features!
HOLDS 4 ADULTS OR 1100 LBS! This is a great small boat, with amenities expected in a much larger craft. It has a wide beam, high sides, and best of all the bow is designed to keep occupants dry in large wave conditions. The owner repeatedly complimented the designers on their ability to make the boat handle large waves! Key West manufactures boat from 15.2 to 24.4 feet. All are outboards. This boat is currently in production, and seems to have passed the test of time.
The fit and function of this craft is well done. She is easy to pull on either of her trailers, easy to launch and retrieve, and great for a get a way with the kids. If you look in the first photo, you will notice a photo of her tied at a dock. Please pay attention to the boy. Notice how the boy is relaxed, even though 200 lb dad is moving around in the back of the 15 footer! Speaks well of her stability!
The 50 hp Johnson outboard seems a good match for this boat. The manufacture recommends powering with 60 to 90 hp., and maximum of 120 hp. Pushing 2 adults and 4 kids, with the necessary gear for a day trip, speaks well for the efficiency and good match between boat and engine. The boat also carries a built in fuel tank with a capacity of 25 plus gallons (per the owner). All controls and electricals are well placed, and stowed in easy to get areas out of sight, and out of the way of passengers, water-sports and fishing gear. There is a small swim platform on the port side, complete with a handy, and deep folding swim ladder.
One of the impressive features of this boat is how the manufacturer designed all of the hardware and bow lighting to be recessed, out of the way, and protected from harm. The bow lights, as an example (see photos) are crafted into the sides, just below the rub rail for maximum protection. The docking cleats neatly fall to be flush, avoiding contact with feet, and fishing gear! The cleats simply pull up for use. The anchor neatly stows in a custom compartment in the bow. The anchor is secured by latches that simply rotate around the top of the anchor and hold it in place (see photos). All in all, a very well thought thru and functional design!
A final nice feature is the full sized cooler that is stowed just in front of the helm. It is retained by two simply bungee type cords, which simply hold it down in the generous floor mounts! With a pad, or cushion, the cooler could be used for additional seating.
If you are looking for a small boat with large boat features, that is light weight, easy to get on and off a trailer, easy to tow, easy to maintain, fun, safe for the kids, sound, has a shallow draft, wide beam, and is designed to keep you dry in large waves, this could be the perfect boat for you!
