Wow! That could get a little crowded.

You need to be looking for something like a SeaArk 2072.

That means it's 20ft long and 6ft wide at the floor level.

The wider it is at floor level the shallower it will float. Your going to need that with that many people.


Now I saw a boat the other night that came past us. It was pretty small. 2 adults were standing in the front and a 7yr or 8yr old boy was sitting in the middle of the boat.

There was about 3in or 4in of freeboard with those 2 standing in the Bow....Kinda scary to me and my crew when we saw them.

Dang, for that many people, I'd be looking for something like a 24' Carolina skiff. My 18'er (for sale) is OK with 4, but that's the comfort limit for my taste! A big pontoon boat might be worth looking at as well!? Keep in mind, the bigger the boat (generally), the more "sail area" it will have, and the wind will push you around more.

+1 for skiff boats, either carolina or sundance (which is what I have and enjoy) will work fine. An 18'er might be a little tight spaced, but a 20' like mine is solid as a rock and can easily seat 2 up front with plenty of leg and wiggle room. These boats advertise a 6in. draft, but I think mine runs an inch or so shallower. Great for near shore and bay fishing, and we carry a boat load + snorkel gear, food, towles, etc when we go scalloping. Oh, love that bimini top too! Good Luck!

What do you have hanging off the back brother??? I am looking at a 20 ft. Sea Ark w/ a 90 Honda. I'm not sure the width of it yet...
