~The Yachtsman 8.5 may be the smallest and lightest of the fleet but it is not light on features or value. The boat was designed to tow easily or to be stowed on deck, davits, or with snap davits on your swim platform.
The Yachtsman comes standard with stainless steel safety handles, lifting rings, and bow eye. A removable, floating rowing seat as well as a large forward storage locker add to the features of the boat. The rub rail is non-marring. All deck surfaces are molded-in, non-skid surfaces. Positive closed cell foam cell floatation in the upper sections of the tubes keep the boat floating upright even if completely filled with water.
The Yachtsman also features molded-in steps in the aft sections of the tubes. This reduces drag and allows the yachtsman to easily plane with a smaller motor. The large tube diameter allows this boat to achieve incredible stability. The Yachtsman 8.5 also comes with a 10-year limited warranty from the manufacturer.
