Sea Sport utilizes time tested techniques such as knitted fiberglass with a biaxial orientation that is lighter in weight and over 30% stronger than traditional materials. We install high-density foam core (NO WOOD) for all structural components, coupled with cutting edge technology including vacuum bagging which produces the strongest, lightest, and safest boats in the market today. Going beyond the surface of the boat, putting the same quality of construction into every aspect of our models is what Sea Sport is all about, prioritizing safety and durability first in every boat we make. That is why our products are so popular in the harsh Alaskan waters where they are the best boat available when it comes to structural soundness. Unitized construction takes extra time and effort, but it results in a stronger product that pays off after years of use. This is evident in how each Sea Sport holds it’s value over the years.
The forward-facing windows allow for a larger hard-top, reduction in rain and spray from hitting the windshield, and also increases the helm area to allow for additional storage and equipment to be installed.
Built-in wire runs are beautifully installed, and all electrical systems are intuitive and convenient. Our tank systems are made to be easily accessible. Our 316L stainless steel railings are stout and provide lifelong durability. We construct each boat with the best products in the industry which make our boats easy to operate and minimizes maintenance concerns.
We are always working to be good stewards of our community. Our manufacturing facility is located directly adjacent to the bay, and our livelihood depends on sustainable resources. Our family and team members have always been committed to exploring new products and practices that are responsible and reduce our overall footprint. We have been recognized numerous times for our approach to our people and our community and will continue to help do what we can with regards to research and looking at a sustainable future.
The lore of hitting the accidental log (or whale in one case) and being able to withstand the impact and make it back to shore in a Sea Sport is not just legend, it is proven reality. We build our boats for a specific purpose – tough weather and rough seas. We don’t try to cater to all types of boating. We have always concentrated on big water and terrible weather.
We keep coming back to confidence. You will feel comfortable as our entry angle, strakes, reverse chines, and dead-rise all work together in perfect harmony to handle 4’ chop. Water stays off the forward-facing windshield offering continued visibility forward and through 360 degrees of windows. Our wiring and components are top-of-the-line and will operate continuously. Since 1955 we’ve improved our approach year after year to provide a product that can withstand just about everything and allow our customers to enjoy the water without feeling nervous or anxious. That’s our Sea Sport guarantee.
The Coast Guard is always impressed when they inspect our vessels. As they should be.
Fiberglass vs Aluminum?
- Overall Ride – Molded product provides performance attributes that are not achievable in aluminum. Fiberglass is heavier, allowing fiberglass hulls to break through waves easier creating less lift and push from chop with less likelihood to slap.
- The complex shapes that fiberglass can create helps keep the boat stable and also creates more lift out of the hole.
- Risk of electrolysis or corrosion.
- Sleeker designs.
- Flexibility and strength pound for pound.
- Fiberglass and resins are specifically engineered for boat construction.
- Running surface and hull designs allow for better speed and stability.
- No sharp edges.
- Endless color ranges.
- Slick, smooth, finish.
- Properly maintained boats can look just like new easily.
- Customized interiors are easily molded or cut away both by factory and by boat owner.
- No need for customized elaborate soft-ride seats.
- Durability using present day composite technology has improved fiberglass construction, where welds and rivets can wear over time.
- Less maintenance with fiberglass (no rivets, welds, or corrosion).
Has much has changed over the years with your Sea Sport models?
There were some major hull and deck overhauls in the early 90’s, but since the mid 90’s the philosophy has been “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. Our quality engineering and experience in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest has proven the design and engineering time and time again. That said, many interior features have been updated, along with streamlined construction techniques that have produced an even stronger product.
