Sea Chaser 26 LX Review
Sea Chaser 26 LX Review Carolina Kahn’s first mission is to get people fishing. But there are days when not everyone in the family wants a line wet. On these days you need a boat that the crew can entertain. Get into the Sea Chaser 26 LX, a boat with a centre console that can get behind the fish, but also to your family comfortable while playing on the water.
Thanks to its graduated hull, which helps break the resilience of the water to increase efficiency, the sea Chaser 26 LX put up impressive performance figures. While it is rated to handle 350 horses, our test model did just fine with a Suzuki DF250 outboarder on the latch. From an idle stop, it reached 30 mph in just 6.3 seconds on the way to a near-50 mph top-end speed. Plus, at optimal cruising speed (28.1 mph at 3,500 rpm), it reached a burn rate of 3.85 mpg.
Don’t forget this basic boat task: The 26 LX is well equipped to catch fish, with a 25-gallon live well on the front deck in addition to those built on the stern deck, so anglers have access to live bait from the front to the rear. The canopy features two built-in lockable bar lockers for your quiver and comes pre-rigged to mount a 36-volt trolling engine. There are also inwhale rod racks that hold three bars per side, along with coamings that wrap around the boat. The optional T-top has four rod holders, and there are eight stainless steel bar holders in the railing tops. All the pins fold down into the recessed position, so you don’t have to worry about catching a moment for fishing, which is the perfect view for lovers of fly fishing and light riding.
The cable car’s casting platform stands out on the supports, providing extremely easy access to the bilge space, a feature that is useful for all boat owners who appreciate the time spent doing routine maintenance work. When family time comes, turn the rear ankle seats, the seat three above, held with compression hinges. A padded bench seats two passengers in front of the console. A cooler hides under the leaning post for ice, food and drinks. Anchor or beach The boat for a bath, and you can easily step over the rear swim to the port of the engine.
