Which Flycraft Fishing Boat Is Best For You?

After announcing our new Stealth X, we've been getting a lot of questions about which boat is the best fit for you. The short answer: It depends on your specific fishing preferences, the waters you fish, and who you want to bring along in your boat.

So we created a simple Flycraft cheat for you below to help you decide which Flycraft model is best for you: 

 

The Flycraft Stealth 2-man (12' long 46" wide) is best for you if...

  • You typically only fish solo or with one other person. If there is a 3rd its a child under 100 lbs
  • You need a boat that breaks down easily and compact for transport in the trunk of a car, RV or can be stored in an apartment.
  • You don't want to pull a trailer. This boat can easily be transported assembled on the roof racks of a car of bed of truck.
  • You fish alone often and need a boat that's easy to get on and off your vehicle and to the water by yourself.
  • At just 98 lbs this boat is about as easy as it gets to move around: whether transporting alone, launching where there is no boat ramp or portaging around that fallen tree.
  • You may find yourself running rivers with up to class II rapids.
  • You want to use a small gas or electric motor (up 30 lbs)
  • You fish big drift boat style rivers, small streams, lakes, ponds, and maybe even the ocean.
  • You fish rivers and streams with shallow riffles - this boat has just a 3" draft

The Flycraft Stealth X 2 or 3 Man (12' long 56" wide) is best for you if...

  • You typically fish 2 or 3 people in a boat. This boat is a great boat for either 2 or 3 adults.
  • You like the idea of 10' added width for stability in swift water.
  • You like having forward lean bars/ leg locks to brace while standing and casting (rear casting brace optional).
  • You don't want to pull a trailer. This boat can easily be transported assembled on the roof racks of a car of bed of truck.
  • You are looking for a self-bailing floor.
  • You may find yourself running rivers with up to class III rapids.
  • You want to use an electric motor or even a larger gas motor up to a 3.5 hp.
  • You fish big drift boat style rivers, small streams, lakes, ponds, and maybe even the ocean.
  • You fish rivers and streams with shallow riffles - this boat has just a 4" draft
