| | RE: baycraft flats boat
Baycraft is definitely an "entry Level" flats boat in many ways. It's construction quality is mediocre at best. Fit and finish is sub-par. It has always been a small company due to the level of quality and popularity of their products.
Unfortunatly, you can find many small flats boat companies in Florida, many of which were started by owners who worked at another flats boat manufacturer, either quit or got fired and started their own company. Many are under insured or not insured and are also ill prepared, financially, to handle major warranty claims. Most do not have the backing or where-with-all to grow and they remain small , if they can even stay in business. I do not know what the finacial stability of Bay Craft might be, but you would be smart to check that out before buying one. Also, don't base your boat buying decision on visiting a small boat manufacturing facility, unless you have been to many different boat plants. A small facility can be made to look and sound good when, in fact, it may not be.
In saying all of that, you would be bettter served by staying with a name brand manufacturer like Hewes, Maverick or Action Craft even if you have to buy used.
