Sea Jay gives you Freedom

Sea Jay’s 6.8 Freedom centre cab gives occupants the advantage of 360 degree deck space to move around on, absolutely essential when a pelagic darts under the boat or when flicking lures to a fast moving school of fish. The Freedom gives you just that, an abundance of room to walk around the outside of the cabin whether for fishing or to tend anchor.

As can be expected from Sea Jay’s Plate Xtreme range, this boat is built to last. It features 5mm alloy plate bottom and transom, 4mm sides, 3mm carpeted floor (or optional 3mm chequerplate), 5mm longitudinal stringers and 4mm solid bulkheads.

The 6.8 Freedom has a deadrise of 19.5 degrees at the transom and 33.5 degrees at two thirds of the boat length. Combine this with a prominent reverse chine and you have a boat that will power onto the plane with ease and give a smooth, controlled ride with stability at rest that’s second to none. A dry weight of 1335kg certainly proves that Sea Jay haven’t skimped on material under the floor.

The 6.8 Freedom is loaded with an array of features to offer buyers more bang for their buck. For starters, it comes with an overhead radio console which can smartly house your VHF Radio and a CD/Mp3 player, hydraulic steering and a solid alloy hardtop to keep you sheltered from the elements. There’s a dive door to safely enter or exit via the transom, LED lighting, and a cabin hatch to allow access to the bow.

Sea Jay also offers factory options to further complement this already impressive vessel. These include an alloy rocket launcher which comes standard with 8 x rod holders, electric anchor winch, chemical toilet, a salt or fresh (or both) water deck wash, electric trim tabs and a 110 litre ice box with split lid.

A massive (360) litres of fuel is crammed under the floor, housed in a separate fuel cell (tank within its own cavity) to eliminate any fuel (or fumes) escaping into the bilge in the unlikely event of fuel spillage. The transom can also be converted to take twin engines if so desired.
