Wooldridge Boats 17' Sport Offshore - Multi-Species Fishing Boat
2014 Wooldridge Boats 17' Sport Offshore DescriptionThe Wooldridge Sport Offshore is a multipurpose boat. It's equally at home on the saltwater, big and small lakes, rivers and bays. It is offered in lengths of 17'3" with side flotation panels, or 20'3" with full length welded side trays. Each has stand-up gunnels with toe kick of course.
Ready to tackle the choppier waters with a prop drive, the Sport Offshore features a 6 1/2' bottom, high sides and plenty of "V" to smooth out the ride. There's a 30 degree dead-rise in the bow, 16 degrees throughout the planning surface.
Wooldridge builds the Sport Offshore with a conventional transom or with an optional offshore bracket that moves the outboard aft and includes a big fish box in the transom with a lift-up lid and handy cutting board.
Wooldridge also designed a displacement box into the offshore bracket. When underway, the boat is running with optimum V for the smoothest ride. When trolling or drift fishing, the boat settles in the water and the displacement box enhances stability.
Select the style best suited to your boating, open boat with a console or as a sedan with the large two-piece walk-thru windshield.
The windshield model has a recessed, self-draining bow and forward walk around with wing. Visibility is great from the helm, sitting or standing, so the skipper is always aware of water conditions.
Easy to tow and easy to launch, modest horsepower moves the Sport Offshore effortlessly, thanks to the Wooldridge design. This four-generation boat builder engineers strength without unnecessary weight to create a tough and proven structure system. It has to work, because the manufacturer provides a lifetime limited hull warranty to the original buyer.
The benefits are immense, especially at the fuel pump. That's true towing it on the highway or on those cherished fishing jaunts. Save money or fish longer. The choice is yours.
The Wooldridge Sport Offshore is a friendly boat. You'll feel right at home. Everything is located where it should be, gear stows conveniently, there's plenty of elbow room and it all means more fun and more success on the water.
The 17-footer isn't too big for tackling those small close-to-home waters, yet has the beam and credentials to tackle bigger waters as well. The 20' Wooldridge Sport Offshore is ready, willing and able to tackle large lakes, bays and saltwater and boasts plenty of deck space for the entire family.
The Sport Offshore yearns to fish and it's eager to help you catch more fish and have the most fun EVER on the water.
