A superb line that evokes power: the Wellcraft 302 is a fishing motorboat which is capable of going offshore, on the fishing site, very quickly...(regarding safety and comfort, especially acoustic, it is worth to mention that the hull is foamed)
... and, with its exceptional flared bow, without being wet. A boat to split waves without asking too many questions. The quality of the gel coat is high level and typically American.
Sun protection in the front, functional up to 65 miles/hour, beautiful T-Top structure, and gangway entrance. Wellcraft clearly shows its flag!
Wellcraft or Scarab Offshore?? Wellcraft and Scarab are two brands of the Bénéteau group, with Scarab specializing in jetboats. And yet, Scarab Offshore is also a superior finish of some Wellcraft boats. It shall be said!
A beautiful door for easy access to the sea, for diving or swimming, and the one at the pontoon or the catway. Seventy kg of reinforcements were added to ensure excellent structural strength.
The Wellcraft 302 deck plan is typical of American sport fishing boats with center console, and wide and secure gangways....
... a beautiful front cockpit, dedicated to comfort (with optional fron benches), or fishing (without benches) ...
.... and a rear cockpit optimized for fishing: folding benches, fish tanks, fish cutting stations, etc.
A sport fishing boat, of course, is of course for fishing, but it is also the pleasure of piloting: in this field, the Wellcraft 302 is a delight for its owner!
Stainless steel steering wheel adjustable by tilting, windscreen in tinted glass: the dashboard of the Wellcraft 302 can accommodate a large multifunction screen.
Safe catwalks, hand-rails judiciously arranged: no problem to move on board, even at high speed.
Access to the cabin in the console is via a very notched door: no need to contortion to access!
The Wellcraft 302's center console features a beautiful washroom. The finishing y is of high level.
Wellcraft: this shall not be the last we hear about the brand that shows otherwise great ambitions, particularly in Europe. The message has been passed...
