Like all Sea Fox models the new 228 Commander is designed to exceed the needs of the most demanding Captain, as well as accommodate his family. As Fisherman and boating enthusiasts we believe it is important to provide all of the necessities for the serious fisherman, but then go further and design family-friendly amenities into each model to truly offer a distinctive and versatile vessel.
Sea Fox Boat Company began with a clear governing philosophy at heart to develop and build quality hand-crafted saltwater boats that offer the best amenities, features, styling, performance and function. While a whole lot has changed in the materials and the methods of building boats during the past few decades, Sea Fox remains committed with a passion and a purpose to perfecting the ability to offer our customers the finest boats for the fairest price.
Today Sea Fox has grown to become one of the top tier manufacturers of saltwater boats offering you a full line of diverse boat designs including center consoles, bay boats, side consoles and dual consoles. All are paired with Yamaha outboard power, along with a multitude of leading edge technologies and innovative features that are unmatched in the industry. We share your love for moments spent on the water with friends and family, which is why every Sea Fox boat model offers a unique blend of fishing/family friendly options perfectly matched to your specific boating passion.
We stand behind our boats with one of the best warranties in the industry with our Lifetime Hull Warranty. Whether you enjoy inshore or offshore fishing, cruising or wake boarding, tubing or exploring by water, Sea Fox has the right boat model to exceed your expectations.
