Default Walkarounds gone?

Does anyone know of any manufacturer other than Grady who still builds walkarounds? I'm in the North East and call me old school but I still like them for the type of fishing I do. Pro-Line, Striper, and a few others all out of business. Any help appreciated.

Boston Whaler, Stamas, OBX, Intrepid, Grady, Pursuit....long list. The difference is, the older models had deeper walkways, to give more cabin room they have been raised so they are more like an express. Interesting though, I will look into this.

Thanks Seakeeper. I should have been more clear. I'm looking for something in the 23' range. I love the Grady 23' although not in my budget. Nothing much out there anymore in this size WA.

They also make a 22 footer, which could be the closest model still in production (other than the aforementioned Grady) to what OP is looking for.

Check out Stripers, they make a 23 and 26. You could have gotten a steal on my 26 Striper with twin 200 Yamaha's......135 hours

I always thought the Kencraft Challenger 22' Walk Around was a solid looking boat.

Cheers

In my part of the world yes, unless it has AC. So smaller walkarounds are disaperaring. Has this conversation earlier this year with an older fishing buddy that has ran them his whole life.

I almost forgot that Parker still makes a WA. For some reason I always think of Parker as a pilot house boat. Good suggestion. Thanks for all the replies.

I checked with a Pro-Line dealer about a month ago and they told me Pro-Line went belly up. Did someone buy them?
