The current owners acquired SeaStrike Boats in 2004 and since have launched an aggressive retooling of the line bringing the models up to the fishing standards of todays serious sport fishing anglers. Currently offering fishing boats 18 to 24 ft., several larger models are now in testing for a 2005 launch to meet owners desire to move up and stay loyal to the brand.
SeaStrike Boats -was originally started in 1973, operating under the name VIP Marine. The company's foundation was based on boating, more importantly the growing sport of fishing.
Under the Seasquirt name, the company introduced 14,16 and 18 foot center consoles. A 24 center console was introduced in the late 80s with a 22 following in 2000. Well designed and well built, the boats quickly acquired a rock solid reputation with owners that still gets passed around the docks today.
SeaStrike Boats have Everything in a Fishing and Family Boat in One
Everything to make it a great fishing boat is incorporated into its standard equipment, as is just about everything to make it comfortable and convenient as a family boat only the enclosed head and some of the rails are optional! The casting deck has three large storage compartments. Combined, they create an uninterrupted area nearly 7' across at its widest, and when the standard equipment cushions and bow filler plate are added, they convert from a casting platform to a comfortable sun lounge.
The helm station on the SeaStrike Boats incorporates well-thought-out external space for extensive flush mounted electronics. It has standard console leaning post seating for two, an optional deluxe leaning post, a properly positioned windscreen and a fully hydraulic steering system. To make it as family-friendly as possible, the lockable walk-in center console storage area can be converted for the optional integrated head with close to six feet of headroom.
All rails - bow, hand and grab - are made of anodized aluminum. They are specially selected and welded for the design of this boat, and then thru-bolted to recessed nuts. All hardware is properly incorporated, from cleats to recessed hinges, and all wiring is encapsulated in conduit. For safety's sake, in addition to a self-bailing cockpit, the 240 has an automatic bilge pump and built-in foam flotation that exceeds the US Coast Guard standards.
SeaStrike Boats Construction
In terms of construction, the hull and inner liner are hand-laid with the finest biaxial fiberglass, and overlapped at the keel and other major stress points. The fiberglass and foam stringer system is built in the same manner and they are permanently built into the boat prior to hull and deck assembly, creating an extremely strong boat free of any distortion on the running surface. The hull and liner are permanently bonded together in molds and cured for 24 hours to create a single unit - this is the unique "knuckle" construction of the boat which is both chemically and mechanically bonded with through-hull bolts that hold the hull and deck together.
