186 Flats Boat
Skinny Water Predator with Big Water Toughness
Anglers who envision owning a tough, shallow water fishing boat that offers big boat benefits can now turn their dreams into reality. The 186 Flats by Ocean Master is a super strong, high-performance flats boat that delivers the advantages of a much larger skiff.
Every Ocean Master is 100% hand laid using either 14 or 20 layers of Nytex biaxial and stitched 2415 fiberglass. We employ top quality vinylester resins and NPG gelcoats to stand up to years of hard use. Our massive, full height, all fiberglass stringers are completely fiberglassed into the hull making a truly one piece structure. The innerliner deck of each Ocean Master is fully vacuum bagged with vinylester compound to ensure a complete bond between the fiberglass and core material. The end result is a massive, rock-solid hull that is one of the strongest on the market.
Every Ocean Master is Semi-custom and Built for Only One Person - You!
At Ocean Master we build a limited number of semi-custom boats for the world’s most discriminating yachtsmen. In fact, our boats are built one at a time for each particular customer. With Ocean Master you have direct input into the building of your boat, so you can be sure you will get the boat you deserve.
