Great looking boat. Would love to get one for my 91 17’ SC here in the PAC NW.

Kind of like this.......this is a Whaler with a Pacific pilothouse. Just enough to keep you protected from wind and spray.

Now that I like!

But I’m afraid I’m in the minority on this one...I do not like the look of the Sea Chaser Yellowtail.
The top, like the Inland Boats tops just looks out of proportion to the boat.  It has the appearance of being top heavy and it looks kind of like an afterthought to me.  I just can’t see me or most of the guys I know ever buying one.
Now the 19 and 21’s with the forward swept windshield...those we like (I actually am in love with them) but I’d have to win the lottery to afford one.
We ALL know that’s not gonna happen!
PLEASE...Fly your flag Proudly, and remember to thank a Vet!

I stopped by the Arima display at the SEattle show Tuesday and took a close look at the Yellow tail.  Unfortunately the three guys manning the display were too busy talking to themselves to attend to my visit so my questions remain unanswered.

That being said, it appears Arima has developed a pilot house and attached it to a 19SC sans windshield (replaced by the pilot house).  I cannot speak to the height at the helm as I did not climb into the boat. 

Perhaps had one of the attendants asked if I had questions, alas not likely to find out now.

   Fixer;   What?  Three guys manning the display....and they were too busy to talk to you?   Now that would piss me off.  In that case, I would have stood very close to them and a very loud voice:   "Yellowtail"?    Looks like an old ho in a new skirt to me!"'ve got to know how to get peoples' attention.   Haha

Dear Arima:   Stretch the Sea Hunter by 5" and the Explorer by 13, please.   Thank you.
