The SeaVee 430 Fish-Around represents the latest evolution of offshore sport fishing boats. Part Express, part Center Console, the 430FA blends the best of both platforms to yield a boat that can literally do everything, and do everything well. The 430FA is available with triple or quad outboards, as well as traditional inboard diesels turning tunneled props or Volvo’s IPS® pod propulsion system.
The 430FA offers anglers a massive, stable fishing platform with a level deck from bow to stern. The 360 degree walk-around design means the entire 43’ of the Fish-Around is available to set your spread and battle stubborn fish.
Thanks to a 40 gallon bait well in the bow, and fish box in the floor, your team can split up and fish both ends of the boat efficiently. Towards the stern you’ll find an array of rod holders integrated into either side of the bride deck. Each one is capable of holding 9 rods – for a total of 18. If more daytime storage is required, the hardtop mounted rocket launcher and tower spans hold another 8-12 rods. The aft fishing cockpit features an abundance of in-deck storage lockers, fish boxes and optional bait wells. Two 40 gallon bait wells are molded into the sides of the transom with an optional 65 gallon well available in the floor.
Additional fishing features include a variety of towers and upper station choices to help the captain spot fish at a distance. Electric reel outlets and a variety of outrigger configurations complete the package.
When you’re building a SeaVee, the brand of motors you choose to power your craft is up to you. In the case of the 430FA, that choice ranges from triple or quad outboards between 300hp and 400hp and twin inboard diesels turning tunneled props or Volvo’s IPS® pod drives. With quad outboards expect a top speed somewhere between 45 – 50 mph depending on boat layout and load. Inboard diesels yield a top speed of 40 mph and a cruise of 35 mph, while pod drives push the 430’s top end up towards 45 mph.
Towers allow the captain to spot fish at a distance. SeaVee offers a wide variety of choices.
Ergonomically located fish boxes and tackle storage compartments are located throughout the cockpit.
Carry up to 24 rods neatly tucked away, yet ready for action in the rocket launcher and on the sides of the bridge deck.
The 430FA can accommodate up to 4 bait wells, two integrated into the transom, one in the cockpit floor, and one in the bow.
An air conditioned Bridge Deck offers a spacious console and plenty of space for the whole crew.
You and your passengers enjoy a stunning overview of your surroundings from the elevated bridge deck. The 430 Fish-Around offers unparalleled situational awareness from the helm located directly on the boat’s centerline. The Captain and Navigator are seated in separate chairs within easy reach of an expansive dash large enough for multiple displays and a variety of navigation, communications and entertainment equipment. The bow is visible from a seated position, and the fishing cockpit is on full display upon merely glancing over your shoulder.
Additional seating for passengers is located to port of the captain featuring comfortable cushions and storage located below. The bridge deck can be outfitted with air conditioning and a polycarbonate enclosure to provide added shelter and comfort for everyone aboard.
A sliding companionway door leads to the cabin below. Once inside, a dinette capable of seating five is located on the port side, with the galley to starboard. Lower the table to create the guest bed. The galley features a sink and an electric heating plate, a refrigerator and ample cabinet space. Windows on either side provide an abundance of natural sunlight throughout the interior.
The master’s suite features a v-berth, closet and adjacent bathroom. Two overhead skylight hatches invite plenty of light and serve as a pass-through for an innovative floor-mounted overnight rod storage system designed to keep your gear safe without lugging it to a hotel room. The bathroom is accessible via the main cabin and features an electric head, sink and stand-up shower.
The 430FA is designed for long range, multi-day trips with a large crew, and can be customized to fit your exact needs. For fishing enthusiasts SeaVee offers a variety of towers, live wells and rod holder configurations, along with the choice of outboard or inboard propulsion. High-end creature comforts include optional rear cockpit seats and and air conditioned bridge deck. How will you build your 430 Fish-Around?
