It has been said that choice is the ultimate luxury.
If that cliche holds true, then the SeaVee 430 Express is definitely a boat worth checking out. Depending on her owner’s druthers, the 430 can either be a comfortable and stylish cruiser that’s perfect for a day out on the water with guests or a real-deal fishing boat that can go out and compete with the big boys. The 430 is available with a variety of serious fishing accoutrements, including a choice of a half-tower, marlin tower, or tuna tower, as well as several different cockpit-door and stowage-space configurations. She can also be outfitted with an array of propulsion systems, including optional Volvo Penta IPS pod drives, that allow her owner to tailor her performance characteristics to his specific needs. The 430 doesn’t lack on the creature-comfort side of the dime either. A bridge deck that can be air conditioned leads to a cabin featuring leather touches, a teak-and-holly sole, and enough space for four adults to relax in comfort—never a bad option.
