Default I have a Question

I am looking at buying a center console sometime in the next few weeks. I am looking at a 2005 Sea Fox 230 CC. Do you guys have any thoughts on Sea Fox boats ride and quality.
Thanks

I have not had any problems with mine. Only repair to the boat was a Live well pump. Had the tower put on in 2006 by Breeze fab, I've had no issues with it. To me, she rides good up to 2' to 3' @ 20 mph with the trim tabs any bigger I slow way down. Sea Fox is a good boat for the money.

I have a 25 ft 2008 with twin 175 Zuks. So far I have been please with the ride and the fuel consumption. No crazy about the wiring on the boat but no problems so far. I believe theyimproved this in 2009. Good boat for the money

I had a 185 Bay. It was beat up when I bought it but the boat was fine. Good ride for thesize, pretty dry. I would not hesitate to buy a Sea Fox.

Contact Victor Wright at Gulf Breeze Bait and Tackle he has had two since I've known him. He keeps giving them business so they are doing something right!

Bullshark, that was a good one! I had a 21 cc for six years. I agree the wiring leaves a bit to be desired. Also the console was only held down with 10 screws (not a problem until you add a T-top). You should also remove all the hatch screws and replace with stainless through bolts. I really enjoyed that boat, and would recommend Seafox for the price.
