Quality build, fishing or leisure
A boat manufacturer that offers a lifetime warranty on their hull is very confident in the quality of their product and Sea Fox deserves to have such confidence. Their Sea Fox 226 Traveler model is a quality build and extremely well-appointed dual console boat which is ideal for both serious fishing and family leisure outings.
Specs and Standards
The 226 Traveler is 7.03m or 23 ft long with a 2.5 m or 8’6” beam and capacity for 8 people. While essentially a trailer boat it is at the large end of this range and will require a significant 4WD vehicle to tow and the wide beam may exceed the towing regulations in some states and require additional lighting, banners etc. Refer to our blogs on boat towing requirements for more details.
Those minor considerations aside, the 226 Traveler is a high quality built boat with an impressive list of standard inclusions which have you pretty much set up and ready to launch.
Sea Fox is known for their rugged construction in fishing boats and the hull is their trademarked system, composite-cored with firbre glass stringers that are bonded to the cockpit sole.
Standard features also include stainless steel hardware, keel drainage system, a non-skid deck surface for safety and a large 382L fuel capacity.
Comfort is not overlooked with a private toilet installed in the bulkhead which makes the 226 Traveler a great choice for overnighters and family day trips. The rear seating can be converted to a bed/lounge for sleeping, which also adds to its versatile appeal.
Very comfortable upholstered seating in both the bow and rear, plenty of waterproof storage for gear and a large insulated storage compartment which can be used as either a fish locker or for refreshments are all included as standard.
Fishing enthusiasts are well catered for with live-bait tank, plenty of cup holders and rod holders, bait rigging station complete with a freshwater sink and plenty more.
At the helm, a comfortable swivel chair and neatly fitted Yamaha instrumentation are just some of the features the skipper will enjoy.
The 226 Traveler can be powered with 100ho, 225 hp or 250 hp outboard.
The layout is roomy and well thought to match the smooth lines of this quality all-rounder. Function meets style with space utilised for storage and practical uses without compromising comfort and quality.
The removable ski pole could easily be utilised for additional fishing accessories.
