The makers of the all-new FinCraft 17SC want you to know that you don’t buy a fishing boat every day, so there’s no sense in buying an everyday fishing boat. Say goodbye to square corners, sharp edges, noisy rides and dull hulls — this baby’s built using VEC fiberglass lamination process. Each FinCraft comes replete with a Yamaha 50-hp outboard motor, a custom trailer, a MinnKota trolling motor and a Lowrance locator. The price is attractive, too, at just $13,995. No other fishing boat offers so much for so little. To get one, find your nearest dealer at Genmar.com.
