Available with either outboards or as an inboard diesel this boat can be configured to suit your exacting purpose. . At the shortest model length of 23ft this is the roomiest cabin in its class and offers unmatched safety and performance.

With Mercury's new 3.0 Turbo Diesel engine this boat has serious performance on command, while also providing economical fuel consumption and greater torque. And with the unique fan tail design you have the working room on deck of an additional three feet. The fan tail is cantilevered over the sterndrive giving added protection to the lower unit and safety while fishing or handling lines. Jumping up to the larger hull lengths, you gain even more deck room. 

Another class leading feature is our vented tunnel design for sterndrives, patent pending, which allows us to mount the sterndrive higher than any other in its class. This feature provides added safety, increased performance, and better fuel economy. 

For those who like outboards on the transom you can choose either a single or dual setup. And with an optional kicker motor its sure to have the preferred setup for every fisherman.

Inside the cuddy you will find 6' -7" of sleeping accommodations. With the option of a full galley you can have a Dometic removable fridge unit, a cook top stove and a fresh water sink. With an available shore power option this is the perfect boat to take on trips anywhere you desire.

lifeproofboats sterndrive tunnel

Vented Tunnel System for Sterndrive Engines (Patent Pending): Our new sterndrive tunnel hull, patent pending, allows the sterndrive to be mounted higher on the transom than other manufactures do. This means less drag, less drag means better fuel efficiency and more speed. This also means less draft for navigation in shallower waters, and the ability to trim the lower unit higher than the bottom of the boat, preventing damage to the lower unit in the event the boat sits on dry ground. 


FAST Closed Cell Foam Buoyancy Stabilizers: The FAST collar system provides superior buoyancy, unparalleled stability and maximum collision protection in a cutting edge, heavy duty package that allows your boat to operate  in the toughest conditions of its class. Manufactured with industry leading equipment and techniques, polyurethane covered foam collars provide a light weight, stable, and seaworthy ride. Used in conjunction with our collar systems our decks are water tight and self bailing which allow them to quickly evacuate any water that may enter the boat. Under the self bailing decks is additional polyethylene foam to achieve maximum flotation and to provide sound deadening for a quieter ride. 

Hull Scantling Structure: The boats structure is designed with toughness in mind. Using the latest in computer aided design software and vessel computation analysis, our engineering team is leading the industry with modern vessel design. All hull and superstructure components are cut with a computer controlled (CNC) router. The structure of our boats are designed using the marine industry rules and regulations published by LLoyd's Register and ISO.

Performance Fins: With Inventech Marine's performance fins, located below the collar the boat stays flat in the corners. They provide unmatched performance and greatly reduce heal in corners.

Fan Tail: With the ergonomic fan tail design, you have full walk around access at the back of the boat. When standing on the platform you are over the sterndrive which provides open access for fisherman or service men who want to keep their lines out of the prop. It gives this boat un-matched deck room compared to other boats. Another feature of the fan tail design is the engine protection it also provides. 

Mercury's 3.0L Diesel Engine with Smartcraft: This boat is outfitted with Mercury's new diesel sterndrive. It provides one of the best power to weight ratio's in class while still holding a commercial rating. This engine is 80% quieter than traditional diesel engines with no smoke or odors. It is cleaner, faster, and smoother. With Mercury's new SmartCraft system it provides digital throttle and shifting for smooth and immediate response.

ABYC Rigging Compliance: We are dedicated to using ABYC rules and regulations during the design and manufacturing of our boats.

Shock Mitigated Flip up Bolster Seating: This boat comes with shock mitigated seating as a standard. Varying grades of shock mitigation.
