This boat is loaded with big boat features that only a company like Sarasota Boat Works could provide. If you are looking for a yacht tender or just want the safety and reliability of diesel power this is the boat for you!
The Helms 21 Diesel was originally conceived as a tender for large yachts so that they finally do not have to carry extra tanks of gas for it's tenders. But with a price that is less than a 200hp 4-stroke outboard. Not to mention the price at the pump for diesel fuel has remained lower than gas. When it's all said and done this is one of the most economical boat and motor packages available today.
While the Helms 21 Diesel uses the same proven hull of the standard Helms 21 it has some features that can only be done with diesel power. Most notable being the fuel and water tanks. The fuel and water tanks have been integrated into the hull construction. An integrated tank is not only safer, it is far less likely to leak and require expensive repairs when compared to the typical aluminum fuel tanks used throughout the marine industry. If a leak should occur repairs are typically less expensive than an normal tank replacement. Tank inspection is also much easier with the standard access port.
Traveling fishermen will love this boat!
As we all know diesel power has long been thought to raise more fish than gas or outboard power while trolling. It also produces a very clean wake (less bubbles) than outboard power and is perfect for trolling. The rumble of a diesel does not tend to spook fish like an outboard so, you can get closer than you ever thought was possible.
Let's recap here. A diesel is less expensive to purchase, use and maintain, safer, and will allow you to catch more fish. Now do we have to say anymore?
