Default New Sea Vee 430 FA (Updated with pictures)

Sea Vee just posted these photos on their facebook page. The renderings for their new 43' fish around. What are your initial thoughts of it? I'm not a huge fan of fish arounds, but this one looks pretty badass.

Not a lot of seating for a 43 foot boat.

It looks like it could be a pain to work a fish around those outboards, especially with the livewells in the corners. An IPS version of this would be pretty cool.

Like it but will never in a million years own 4 outboards. Just not my thing although I understand what it takes to push it.

My concern would be lack of rod holders. Other than that I don't see what's stopping me from buying one.

The 43 FA will be available with IPS and inboards. The cockpit with inboards has the livewell in the middle. Hull #1 will be Ariel's boat with outboards. This boat is a fishing machine, it will sleep 5, has a fwd livewell, you will be able to put 18 rods on the side of the console. There was alot of thought that went into this boat. I cannot wait for Ariel to take me fishing on his new boat.

^^^ agreed. i always loved the all their rigs with the ips. that is a massive interior for this kind of a setup. put the live wells in the corners and a fold down seat across the back.

I mostly like it. Might make some layout changes. Four outboards is a lot to deal with too....might be a good seven candidate once they start shipping.

Yup, and I bet 7 Marine is banking on these kinds of boats. I personally think 4 outboards is cool, but someone buying a boat like this may not want the entire transom consumed with fleet of engines.

If it's possible to use this word when describing boats like this, twin 7 Marine 557's would be more "practical" than quad 300's. Then again this boat would probably end up with triple 557's over quad 300's so that wipes the "practical" right out of the equation.

IMHO, a much more practical than the pure center console where too much space is consumed as open space with too little concessions to human comfort and needs ..... but maybe is just the point of view of someone not living in the U.S., different contrys , different boaters culture ....

makes sense for down here where most of the fishing is day trip with occasional overnight bahama trips and alot of kite fishing. if you ever talk to the guys at sea vee the diesel boats they like but in their mind for a normal rec guy the cost of the diesels and the speed you give up for the small difference in fuel plus the interior storage lost and if you ever needed to repower they really push you towards outboards.

I think its a great idea and Sea Vee will most definitely do it right.

IMO the previous fish arounds where simply not in a big enough to offer necessary comfort. ie Blackfin, Contender, even one of my favorite the predator 35, but this at least from the illustrations seems to really overcome that.
