The Wooldridge Sport Offshore is a multipurpose boat. It’s equally at home on the saltwater, big and small lakes, rivers and bays. Wooldridge offers the Offshore in lengths of 17'3" with side flotation panels, or 20'3" with full length welded side trays. Each has stand-up gunnels with toe kick, of course.
Ready to tackle the choppier waters with a prop drive, the Sport Offshore features a 6 1/2' bottom, high sides and plenty of “V” to smooth out the ride. There's 30 degree deadrise in the bow, 16 degrees throughout the planning surface.
Wooldridge builds the Sport Offshore with a conventional transom or with an optional offshore bracket that moves the outboard aft and includes a big sink/fish box in the transom with a lift up two-piece handy cutting board/lid.
Wooldridge also designed a displacement box into the offshore bracket. When underway, the boat is running with optimum V for the smoothest ride. When trolling or drift fishing, the boat settles in the water and the displacement box enhances stability and buoyancy.
Select the style best suited to your boating, open boat with a console or as a sedan with the large two-piece walk-thru windshield.
The windshield model has a recessed, self-draining bow and forward walk around with wing. Visibility is great from the helm, sitting or standing, so the skipper is always aware of water conditions.
