Default 22' Sea Pro

I plan on buying a boat in the near future for the primary purpose of king fishing. I recently went to the Raleigh Boat show and liked the Sea Pro 22' CC. I have ridden in a sea pro before and it seemed to be a sturdy boat. Has anyone got any advice? I want to stay 23' and under, at a reasonable price.

Welcome Aboard.

Try using the "Search" feature w/ Sea Pro as the keywords. This
brand, among others, have been discussed at length and you're sure
to find a lot of good info. Try to separate the fact from the flame.

I have a 2004 Sea Pro... 14 months, 1800 nautical miles on it. No major complaints and too few minor ones to mention. Good choice, enjoy.

Sea Pro... nice solid well designed and built boats IMO. Good "bang for the buck"... and I don't mean that in a negative way at all. Like mentioned above, perform a search and you'll find a wealth of information.

I have a 2003 235 CC with twin Johnson Four strokes on a bracket with all the options and love it. Been in poors mans (50+ miles) on the correct days and never an issue. Several times have come in when weather got tough 4-6ft not an issue at at. I cruise at 28 knots at 4000 and burn less than 15 gallons/ hr.

If I can work out the correct deal may upgrade to the 270cc this year. Larger fuel and wider beam. Still have to pick the days but Idon't think you could go wrong.

Before you buy check Ed's marine superstore and Chatlee Marine. By far the leasr expesive dealers for Sea Pro in the Mid Atlantic. I live in Annapolis, md and drove 8.5 hours to Chatlee because of the savings.

good luck

Thanks, that's great to know. I live 20 min. from Chatlee and that is one reason I was interested in Sea Pros. My mind is just about made up, can't wait for SKA to start. Good luck with the upgrade.

As you can see I Have the 22 footer and I am very pleased with it. Also very pleased with Chatlee. Handles rough water very well and it is very stable. Great boat for the money and it is the perfect fit in my opinion for a boat under 23 foot. Not too BIG and not too small. If you need anymore info shoot me a pm.

I graduated UNC-woman in 99 and lived in Carolina beach or Wrightsville up to the recent relocation. I love the 22 Sea Pro. In fact, I was asking about it on here. One major hitch for me is there is no more cockpit space behind your leaning post than in a 17ft boat. I love the boat, but something to think about when you are running around the back with rods going off. The livewells are great though!!!!

UNCW Grad, I am a fellow Seahawk as well c/o 98. I have the 206 and am very pleased, I would think the 220 would treat you just as well. Let me know if I can answer any more questions.

The space in the back is usually the main focus on a Saltwater boat. It is true that there is not very much room behind the leaning post. But to be honest it has never been a problem for me . It has more room than it looks but more would be NICE. This is the only thing that is questionable about this boat. It is very nice and fishable overall.......

CheeseWithout, and 2Blackdogs,

Trivia test. Can you remember when the number one bar at Carolina Beach was the Silver Dollar Saloon, the Chi-Lites (Oh Girl) and Tams were the favorite songs/groups, Skippy Winner was making $ on moonlight cruises, when striped bass were being caught on top water in Snow's Cut, UNC-W was Wilmington College and won the National Junior College Championship, and I used to work at the ABC store on the corner of Wrightsville Beach? Oh those were the days!

Eastwood Road was only 2 lanes, Shell Island resort was in no danger of erosion, Red Dogs had bladder buster nights, and you could always find a parking place on the beach somewhere.......

Yeah, I miss those towns. Lived in Wilmington, Wrightsville and last CB. Build a strong fishing rep on the Cape Fear and was about to start part time guiding. NC Sportsman did a story on me and my phone rang off the hook non stop, plus I was writing for the Fisherman. Left for work reasons.

I miss the area. Loved it........................ My best day of flounder fishing in Snow's Cut. 7 citation fish in one day, biggest 13lbs even.

I own a 220CC as well. I purchased it in August of last year from a local dealer, just about 6 miles from the actual plant. I have had it out on Lake Hartwell SC, Lake Jocassee SC and The Isle of Palms SC. I have no complaints and love it. I have a 225 Evinrude on the back and trimmed out she will do about 48mph. I was told by many people before I bought it that room behind the leaning post would be an issue and it has not been for me either. I have had 7 adults on it and still feel I had plenty of room. Some standard features I found important to me were the wash down, hydraulic steering and now they are doing stainless steel props. It's bigger than you think. I stand 6'3 and still can't look over the side into the boat when trailered. Three of my buddies have one. Sturdy and safe....very satisfied and I highly recommend getting one. Good luck

That's great info going tomorrow to the dealership. To cheesewithout and 2BlackDogs those were they days. I miss that place everyday, had a house on a lagoon with a boat dock and fished almost everyday. I visited WB not too long ago and you couldn't even recognize the bar scene and traffic was horrible, but one thing that had not changed were the beautiful women and the loop. Man I miss that place

I dont think you can go wrong with the SeaPro. I have the 195 and my fishing buddy has the 24 foot CC, both are excellent boats, well made, with excellent attention to detail for a mid tier boat. You always have a few minor issues, but the SeaPro folks seem to be a pretty responsive bunch.

I have a 2002 model with a 200 hpdi.464 hours .regularly fish 30 to 40 miles out.Ride will kill you in 4 -5 footers but boat has and can handle much more.Not one stress crack or anything else .Solid built,Boat can fish 3 comfortably at 4 it gets a little tight.My top speed is 37 knots.Reality speed in ocean is about 24 in 3 footer and less in bigger stuff.Anchor locker wont hold the size anchor you need for the boat.Forget the porta potti stuff, no space but it is there.Boat is very good on gas and holds plenty.Have gone 180 miles 12 hours on 70 gallons holds 105.I love this boat this will be its fourth summer and it cleans up and holds a shine
beautifully.It is a great boat and the price was affordable.No its not a Regulator or Contender but if it had some deadrise it would be.

I felt the same way. I think the 238 Sea Boss or 230 Hydra Sport with the bracket motor is the way to go.. MUCH more room behind the helm which is where 90% of my fishing is done.. Good luck!
