Interesting that Flagship will not state who builds the boats.....so many similarities to so many other boats.

Being only sold by one boat yard is also of concern....

They could be a good boat is the design and build are good....or you could be buying someones get rich quick retirement scheme... be fully satisfied before parting with your coin.

Link on the website has some more information. Ozzy made.

Specs look pretty good too as a plate boat. I'd go for a water test to see how it rides and whether it's comfortable or wet boat.

  • 3 or 4mm bottom sheets depending on the model

Well I bought it & couldnt be happier with it. 2 x outing so far with it blowing its arse off & it handles everything far better than I could have hoped.

I water tested a few of the better known brands & this is at tleast their equal.


Now, may the weather improve somewhat.

Great news! Now for the weather gods to play the game. What did you get fitted out with the boat? Electronics? Trolling motor? Live bait tanks? Cast decks? etc
