Aft the cockpit takes family opportunity and fishing very seriously as outfitting for unmatched experiences is what Wellcraft strives to provide. Three-drawer tackle storage to starboard neighboring a tool holder contributes to the cutting station, while the insulated aquarium baitwell (35gal) is a definite showcase for excitement.
