The new, super-tough, all-welded aluminum RiverCat from SeaArk is designed for catfish anglers, especially tournament fishermen who need a big, efficient boat that can perform in various situations.
The RiverCat is a 20 footer, with a 95-inch beam and a 72-inch bottom, that provides a wide, stable platform with plenty of room to work when battling big, tough fish.
The bow deck is large enough to use as a fishing platform while also offering an anchor locker and a large storage box. The stern features a 40-gallon livewell under the rear seat and has a covered storage area. Plus, a 30-gallon fuel tank allows long runs to secret hotspots.
Other features include side panels, a level .125 gauge treadplate floor, navigation lights, bilge pump and a covered battery storage area.
SeaArk also introduced the RiverCat Classic, and upgraded model, available in side- or center-console versions. It offers the same valuable standard features—trolling motor wiring and base, navigation lights, bilge pump, rear hinged lid, side panels, 34 x 18 x 13-inch bow storage area, anchor locker and baitwell—plus more.
Though all the hulls are the same length and beam, the Classic’s rear deck was extended to allow more fishing space, as well as room for a 60-gallon livewell and two additional dry storage boxes. In addition, the Classic models come with two 32-inch fold-down seats as standard equipment.
Price (Classic): $13,210 (center console); $13,307 (side console)
