The Predator DLX, made of Pelican’s patented RAM-X material, is the luxury model of their modified “V” hull fishing boats. This comfortable craft features two padded folding and swiveling seats, a battery compartment, built in motor mounts at the bow and stern, a 12-Volt electrical outlet at the bow and one at the stern, one swivel rod holder, two vertical rod holders, and two horizontal rod holders.

If you plan to spend the day fishing, this boat lets you do it in comfort. There is room for plenty of gear, not to mention rod holders to suit anyone’s needs. The raised seats don’t compromise stability. Note, though, that the storage and battery bin lids are not secured and so may pop open if you flip the boat on its side for storage. Until Pelican addresses this, it can be resolved with some self-adhesive Velcro.
