Wooldridge Boats 17' Sport - Multi-Species Fishing Boat
New 2014 Wooldridge Boats - 17' Sport - Multi-Species Fishing
2012 Wooldridge Boats 17' Sport DescriptionThe Wooldridge Sport is a jet boat designed for outdoor folks who want to get at the shallows and still be able to chase fish into deeper waters. It’s has a “V” bow to break up a surface chop and smooth the ride. And, of course, there’s a 10 degree dead-rise through the planning surface to assure superb shallow water performance. These hull characteristics, combined with the exclusive Wooldridge jet tunnel (see illustration on back page) provide optimum on-the-water performance. The tunnel acts as a skeg, enhancing traction on turns and enhancing the ability of this jet boat to maneuver through obstacle laden shallows, like a sports car in the pylons. The tunnel also helps flow clean water to the jet, directing “clean” water over into the tunnel for a minimum of cavitation and maximum driving force. The Wooldridge tunnel also moves the jet foot up out of harm’s way (again, see illustration on page two) for less exposure to shallow water rocks. Pick your power, select your style. The Sport is eager to please and is available in lengths of 17'3” with side flotation panels, or 20’3” with full length welded side trays. Select the style best suited to your boating needs, open boat with a console or as a sedan with the large two-piece walk-thru windshield. The Sport windshield model features a recessed self-draining bow, forward walk-around with a wing and large two-piece walk-thru windshield for optimum visibility at the helm, sitting and standing. This design also makes it easier to access the bow from the beach or river bank. There’s plenty of room, with the two-piece windshield design to load large coolers, people, gear and game. The stand-up gunnel with toe kick assures stable comfortable fishing all day long. And, the Sport’s beamy 6’ wide bottom means lots of deck space for the crew. Easy to tow and easy to launch, Wooldridge has engineered strength without unnecessary weight into the Sport. That translates into less power required for the tow rig and at the marina, whether you are powering with four stroke jet power or direct injection two strokes. The Sport is built for lasting performance. Refined through four generations of superior boat building, rest assured that all Wooldridge boats come with a lifetime limited hull warranty for the original owner. The Wooldridge Sport is not only a versatile boat, built to last, but a handsome sort as well. Fact is, odds are good that if you are a Sport, this Sport is for you!
