Interior LED Lighting Package
When the sun goes down, the cockpit comes to life. The included lighting package is as beautiful as it is functional, a blue glow covers every inch of the cockpit for safety and aesthetics.
AlloChrome4200+™ Stainless Fasteners
AlloChrome4200+™ is a revolutionary new stainless coating capable of lasting up to fifteen times longer than typical chrome coating. This means that independent testing shows that these fasteners can withstand over 4,200 hours of salt spray protection
Pull Up Cleats
High quality Gemlux pull-up cleats are standard throughout the boat. They offer a flush installation and very smooth operation.
Self Bailing Cockpit
This important safety feature allows any water on the deck to drain overboard and not into the bilge area. Any water that seeps into the bilge, can only be pumped out by the bilge pump, which is slow at draining large amounts of water. All Sportsman Boats have a collector box drainage system that ties in all drains from the deck and redirects the water directly overboard without mechanical assistance.
Grip Tex Yacht Style Non-Skid
This texture is applied to the deck and step areas for a uniform random non-skid coat. This type of non-skid is not patterned and is easy to repair should it ever get chipped or damaged.
