The 226 DC is a seriously strong fish boat.
By: Captain Christopher Kourtakis
Sailfish did not hold back on their fishing heritage when designing the new 226 DC. Loaded with family-friendly features, this SUV of the water provides the dual functionality that you would expect from a design such as this. Ample storage, comfortable seating, space to fish and let’s not forget great lines and styling. This all-new design displays confidence and style.
The fishability of the 226 DC includes a 26-gallon live well, numerous rod holders, and insulated bow fishing boxes that can double as additional cooler space. The family-friendly conveniences include a Baja sandbar cooler in the transom swim platform along with a Baja storage box. The standard pressurized freshwater shower and optional ski tow pylon are excellent additions to the already countless amenities.
The cockpit seating layout is functional and spacious. Mounted aft of the cockpit is the fold down rumble seat that can be stored away when moving around the space. The port side bench has an articulating divider that moves up and down to provide a lounger or two additional seats while under way. Combing pads adorn all the gunnels. The captain’s chair is exceptionally designed with movable arm rests, swivel, and a fold up bolster seat. The bow seating is typical of a runabout with bench seating on either side and well positioned stainless-steel rails. The port side console has a small head while the starboard side provides additional storage for the table and other gear.
Built with top quality materials such as Kevlar, carbon fiber, quad axile fiberglass mat and Trevira, the 226 DC has the strength, quality, and durability that their loyal owners have come to expect over the years. The sixth generation Variable Degree Stepped (VDS) hull design provides both stability and performance no matter where you are boating. Whether you are island hopping in Georgian Bay or you are boating on the St. Lawrence River you can have the confidence that the 226 DC will get you there safely and in style.
The 226 DC truly offers families and serious fisherman the best of both worlds. There is no longer a reason to compromise as the 226DC has something to offer all levels of fisherman and avid boaters.
