The “Flats Facts”:  Sea Chaser Flats Series

By Capt. Ted Lund


Finding the perfect boat can be difficult, but there is nothing like seeing the right tool for a job. Getting into shallow water and finding more fish is exactly what Sea Chaser Boats from leading manufacture Carolina Skiff had in mind when developing the “Flats Series,”

Offered in three sizes (160F, 180F and 200F feet in length) the “Flats Series” provides the perfect combination of performance, stability, and options whether you are chasing permit on the flats or snook in the mangroves. With these three great boat length options and manufactured by one of the most trusted name in boat building, the Sea Chaser Flats is the right boat for you if fishing “skinny” is your passion.

Designed with a wide beam and displacement, the Sea Chaser Flats Series draws as little as 7 inches of water (depending on size and load.) Perfect for the shallow water fishing enthusiasts!  Plus, great thought went into the design providing a wide range of flats-specific features including insulated bait wells with a Maxi-Air aerator system to keep your bait fresh on the way out and an insulated fish box to keep your catch cold all the way back home.

Additional standard options include lockable rod storages and integrated tackle boxes with pull out trays. Each model comes with push pole holders and is pre-rigged for 12- or 24-volt trolling motors if this is a more favorable way to move along slowly while fishing.  Other standard features include a center console with rod holders, seat cushions, quick-disconnect windshield, separate grab rail, flush mount lifting eye, stainless steel pull up cleats, no-feedback steering, lockable dry storage, LED running lights, electric trim tabs with indicator panel and much more. With more standard features provided than most other manufacturers, the Flats Series is ready to fish from the very first moment on the water.

Sea Chaser recognizes anglers desire choices and beyond the standard features, there are many upgradable options you may choose to outfit your own “Flats” model to best suit your needs as well. Upgrades include a 6-inch Atlas hydraulic jack-plate, raw-water washdown, an additional forward live-well with high-speed pick-up, poling platform as well as hydraulic steering with a tilt helm. In addition, boaters have a choice of a canvas T-top or Bimini top (depending on the model.) The T-top option also includes storage as well as LED lighting.
