Sport with 200hp Mercury Optimax Sportjet
The Sport with a 200hp Sportjet is a hot rod. It accelerates hard and has a great top end.
The inspiration for this go-fast, go-anywhere machine was for our friends in Alaska who want a small boat with lots of power and the ability to get into tight places where they're not comfortable taking a bigger boat,ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ explains Glen Wooldridge.
There's lots of room in this Sport and it has the fuel capacity for getting into the backcountry, with 50 gallons of fuel storage tucked under the floor of this all-welded aluminum boat.
And, it is a stout boat. As in all Wooldridge Sportjets the bottom basically has a double hull down the center of the planing surface. That means .350" of aluminum protection against impact damage.
Of course there are the many other benefits common with Wooldridge Boats, the large two-piece walk-thru windshield and recessed bow for easy access for folks and bulky gear. There's a forward walk-around as well. The forward wing provides extra wave deflection and that two-piece windshield offers excellent visibility for the driver, sitting or standing.
The toe kick along the gunnels means extra security for fishermen when they are working the fishing rod.
Another convenience that Wooldridge engineered into this Sportjet powered Sport is the large removable transom access panel. That means easy access for service and maintenance.
