At 16' long, the BASS BUGGY 16 DLX is an easy to tow and stow—yet extremely stable—platform for families that love to fish.
Don't let its nimble size fool you—this boat is spacious enough inside for a crew of seven. And it still packs in plenty of fishing features, i.e., a full loaded bow fishing deck with two fold-down chairs, an aerated livewell and more. And it's still comfortable with a large L-lounge and Bimini top.
