With many manufacturers adding beam to new models, Sea Vee Boats has introduced the 290B, a boat that is designed to still be trailerable with a 9-foot beam. The new boat features Sea Vee’s prismatic hull with a 25-degree deadrise at the stern and a keel pad that improves top end and sea keeping.

For the most strength at the lightest weight, the 290B is built with the Sea Vee’s vacuum assisted resin transfer molding technology. The process infuses the cored hull, stringers and bulkheads simultaneously resulting in more even saturation of the resin.

Standard equipment includes an integrated engine platform with a transom door, under-deck storage, AGM batteries, trim tabs, hydraulic steering and more. Available options include a hardtop, a second control station and electronics from all the major brands.

Fuel capacity is 251 gallons in epoxy-coated fuel tanks. The cockpit features multiple seating options while anglers should appreciate the fully insulated fishbox and 50-gallon livewell system. The 290B is available with twin outboard motors up to a total of 700 hp.
