Great fishing boat! Everything you need to get out on the water for some prime fishing!
The Carolina Skiff CC/Bay boat has always been a popular boat for the fishing crowd that prefers options on where to fish and what species to fish for. This popularity has derived from the craftsmanship and durability built into these boats. Strong enough to withstand sea conditions a few miles offshore. The semi-vee hull design with a shallow draft handles the chop of big water while allowing you to reach the skinny waters of inland creeks, rivers, or your favorite lake. Easy to tow using virtually any size vehicle and extremely easy to launch and retrieve.
These features built into the 198 DLV has created a large increase in popularity and demand during the last couple of years.
This 2011 model 198 DLV begins with a Suzuki 115 HP four-stroke engine. The owner stated there are only 320 hours on this engine and has been serviced regularly. He also stated, there is an extensive book of records dating back to the original owner.
A very nice feature not often found on these boats is a Stryker T-Top with a canvas top, an electronics box, and multiple rod holders/rocket launchers. There are five or six homemade rod holders that are not included but the others stay with the top. Spreader lights both fore and aft on the top complete this feature. Internet research suggests this is a $2,500 upgrade.
The helm is laid out nicely with the control buttons right at your fingertips and all the instrumentation needed to keep a steady watch on engine operation. Recently added is a Lowrance Elite-5 GPS/Fishfinder. There is also a Jensen Bluetooth compatible stereo for your favorite tunes. The controls and steering are ever so slightly left of center to allow room for a passenger to share the leaning post.
Moving to the bow you find a nice sizeable casting deck with storage. This area quickly converts to a sun pad for catching a few rays simply by adding the bow cushions that are included. Also located on the bow is a Minn Kota Terrova Riptide I-Pilot trolling motor. This sweet little feature was just added in 2020, has 80 lbs of thrust, and is remote controlled. You can control this I-Pilot from anywhere on the boat with a push of a button.
Many upgrades on this 198 with the most notable being the T-Top and the new Minn Kota. The recently added Lowrance is a nice addition that was not a factory option.
