Wellcraft is a subsidiary of Genmar Holdings. Wellcraft is known around the world for world-class performance, quality and style. Since 1955, Wellcraft has been focused on building family and sport fishing boats.
The Wellcraft name is associated with four lines of boat models: coastal, fisherman, sportsman, and offshore center console. These boats range in size from an 18-foot to a 44-foot model. Wellcraft produces center console, dual console and express-type fishing boats. Each model features a foam-filled fiberglass stringer system for structural integrity and long service life, and offers a ten-year structural hull limited warranty.
The company, whose products are sold at dealerships throughout North America and in 20 countries worldwide, is a unit of the Sarasota, Florida, based Genmar Saltwater Fishing Boat Group. As a member of the Genmar boat family, Wellcraft puts a priority on strong technology and boat crafting. Wellcraft has been certified by the International Standards Organization as ISO 9001 compliant. Choices in construction include a very deep V hull for both an improved ride and fuel savings. Plexus adhesive has the dual attributes of strength and flexibility and connects the stringer-alignment systems. Overlap hull-to-deck joints use fasteners placed every fourth inch around.
From the 160 Fisherman to the 45 Excalibur, every watercraft takes advantage of the latest technologies available. Designed by the best minds in the business, Wellcraft fishing boats are tough, rugged and very fishable. Wellcraft express is as powerful as luxurious. Wellcraft performance boats wow thrill-seekers, professional racers and movie stars alike while our sport boats offer enthusiasts the highest levels of customer satisfaction.
Wellcraft has a rich tradition of building boats that fit the way people fish. The most fishing companies give their preference to Wellcraft boats. Many producers of fishing boats base on Wellcraft boats to take the best from them. They try to combine Wellcraft quality and fishability with the latest shallow-water fishing innovations and a wide choice of options to satisfy every fisherman.
Shallow-water fishermen now have two new choices to consider when shopping this year's boat show season. The Wellcraft 215 Bay and 195 Bay models for 2006 offer everything a great bay boat should: an 8' 6" beam, a fully lined, self-bailing cockpit, huge casting decks fore and aft, a lighted console baitwell, transom release well, plenty of rod and dry storage, prewire for optional trolling motor and charging system, and a choice of clean, quiet Yamaha four strokes.
The 215 and 195 hulls draw 10 inches of water and are available with an optional tunnel hull for refined shallow running. Wellcraft's advanced design technology makes these hull designs run smooth and dry from the shallows to rough bay crossings. The Bay series boasts an impressive options list, allowing each owner an unprecedented level of customization.
