Default Action Craft 1602 vs Flyfisher 1620 vs Flyfisher 1622

What is everyone's thoughts on a 2001 Action Craft 1622 Flyfisher? What is the difference between the 1602, 1620, and 1622? How about special edition vs non-special edition? I plan on going to look at a 1622 Flyfisher in the near future. It has a 2001 Mercury 90 with approximately 900 to 1000 hours (since 2001). The power head was swapped out in 2005 under warranty. What are everyone's thoughts on the boat? Anything I should know before checking it out?

I had a 1600 coastline and it was a fantastic boat! It was a 2001 with 90 mercury and rid mid 40's and drafted an actual 6-7 inches. Awesome boat and only reason I sold was because I wanted something that would break my neck it was so fast. Considered putting a 350 verado on the back of the 16 but figured it may be a little heavy and just a tad dangerous... no hull problems whatsoever on any models except for maybe the coastal bay in 05

Hull is the same deck is just different on the two boats. SE just meant it included options like tabs, hull color etc that could also be added to a non SE model. SE was mainly a sticker that said it had the bells and whistles. They're solid boats for sure.

Are you comparing the 1600 to the 1620/1622? Do all 3 have the same hull?

The 1622 is the most current boat in production.

www.actioncraft.com/BoatModels/1622FlyFisher.php

The 1622 is the the top of the line 16ft boat with the raised diamond plate decking and all the bells and whistles so to speak. The SE package is a option package with trim tabs and other options for the 1622.

The 1600 is the "Coastline Model" with the same hull but more affordable cap layout etc. The TE package is the option package with trim tabs etc for the 1600 hull.

http://www.actioncraft.com/BoatModel...roFeatures.php

The 1620 model you reference is no longer in production and was replaced with the 1622. If my memory is correct the 1620 was the hull prior to the redesign that included the Qui Dry hull. You can review the website for specific benefits of the Qui Dry hull.

This is a great little boat but if you decide you need something a little bigger check out the 1720.

Any questions shoot me a PM or just give Action Craft a call. They are great folks to work with and will gladly help you out. Good Luck!

The 1620 was the older style hull. The "pocket" was bigger and the bow rounder.
Some 1620's had the flip seat, but most did not.
The 1622 is the current production model.
Both are well made and perform great w/ 90 HP.
I like the 1620, because I was never a fan of the flip seat.
(Too low with no leg room when used, so always left it closed & sat on top)
The 1620 used the "folding seat" space for storage, always needed on a small boat.
..
Both hulls ride good, pole good, and are easy to walk around.
