Where do you want to go on the water today? Fishing a nearby inlet at dawn? Beachcombing the morning away along a favorite island, followed by a picnic lunch? Making a day trip to explore a river a hundred miles from home? Or just slipping out to watch a spectacular sunset?
Seaway’s elegant 21 Sportsman can take you there, whether she lives on a mooring, a lift on a pier, or a trailer. She’s big enough to handle that inlet safely on reasonable days but small enough to beach safely or tow easily behind a medium-sized SUV or pickup. And she’ll run well all day at cruising speeds in the 20s with a 90-hp engine that won’t come close to burning the fuel in her 50-gallon tank. If you need a little more speed for tow sports or moving heavy loads, she can take a 115 without burning much more.
The 21 Sportsman’s hard-chine hull allows her to “sail easy,” as watermen like to say, so her fuel efficiency appeals to anyone with a Yankee sense of thrift. Meanwhile, her proud, buoyant bow and sharp hull entry cleave seas. Her spray rails damp down those cloven seas, but for extra shelter, add a T-top and a folding dodger to cover the bow area. She offers a variety of fishing features and options, including under-gunwale rod racks and a livewell. Her generous console provides a cushioned forward seat, storage, and a helm with compass and space to mount an electronic display. Her standard helm seat is a leaning post with lockable storage and open space behind. A well-designed 21’ center console boat is the ultimate in versatility. This Sportsman can be your magic water-carpet.
