Sportsman Reef 17


Available in Different Hull Colours

The Sportsman Reef 17's (overall length 5.2m) is available in four different colours and aesthetically, it is an amazingly beautiful craft. The internal layout is extremely fisher-friendly and boasts exceptional attention to detail. Neat storage options are concealed within the roomy floor and console. The two seats located on either side of the transom enclose a large storage compartment/kill tank/esky on the port side and plumbed live-well in the starboard corner and of course, like most boats, the largest storage hatch is located beneath the front casting deck.

Massive 154 Litre Fuel Tank

The 154 litre fuel tank ensures plenty of capacity for those wide trips to the reef or weekends away. The Sportsman Reefs advanced composite construction means a 100% fibre-glass hull. Zero timber means no rot and no slop which are common issues for some of the earlier/other makes and models of fibre-glass boats. An automatic bilge pump, self-draining deck and level floatation are just a few more important attributes amongst a myriad of other features. It became glaringly obvious to me that the Reef range by Sportsman has thought of all the little things......and done them right.

Internal Layout

The console itself presents very nicely with classy Yamaha gauges, stainless steel steering wheel, two stainless steel cup holders and plenty of room to flush mount electronics into the dash or atop if you so desire. Another seat is situated immediately in front of the console and windscreen and as a really neat little feature, the storage compartment beneath this seat incorporates a cargo net useful for cradling more delicate items for those times when conditions may present themselves to be somewhat unfavourable.

For a 19 foot boat, the Sportsman Reef 19 was exceptionally roomy. There were storage lockers galore and the spacious floor was certainly well utilised with hatches all over the place.
