- Sure to be a hit with sport fishers
The Sea Fox 209 Commander Center Console looks set to be a top performer in the coastal sport-fishing scene. First impressions believe the fact the boat has an LOA of 6.8m, but the realization that its dry weight is 1066 kg confirms the 209 has some serious structural qualities that will stand it in good stead in less than kind seas.
The slight hint of Carolina styling is typical of the Sea Fox range and adds a touch of class to an already practical and smart boat.
LAYOUT

- Great for fishing or taking out the family
The deck plan lends itself to all manner of fishing but hasn’t ignored family days on the water, either. While some of the crew are enjoying the angling, others may relax on the bow-riding lounge. This wrap around affair is built as part of the top liner and has two hatches, both of which have raised sills with rubber seals to keep water out. The cushions are removable via stainless-steel press studs.

The fixed bow roller services the anchor well, which has a side opening hatch that rests on a rubber seal to prevent vibration noise and gelcoat wear. In another show of design practicality, there are two chocks at either side of the aperture in which the cross bar of a Danforth anchor suspends preventing it from damaging the internals of the well.
Neat pop-up cleats are installed in the coamings, the top of which and feature a diamond-grip non slip finish.
A full-width rear lounge has a long fishbox built into its centre and a smaller one starboard side. The surface of this lounge base is also non slip so it makes an ideal casting deck and the cushions here are removable to facilitate this.
A high fixed backrest for the abovementioned transom lounge offers those standing and fishing this area a greater degree of safety over the low-profile surrounding coamings.
The transom features two hatches: the one on the starboard side is a general stowage area with the inner base rebated to hold a bucket preventing it slipping around. Another display of practicality, and by the way, you get the bucket with the boat!
The port corner of this bulkhead hosts the accommodating live-bait well, which has a round corner profile and is finished internally in a sky blue tone; typical of what you see in the Sea Fox range and touted as features that stress the livies less.
The stern is adorned with a pair of boarding platforms and both are fitted with telescopic stainless-steel ladders that fit flush into rebates. There are also ski-rope hooks, a two-rod rack at the forward end of the engine well and grab rails for ease of boarding.
The console is shadowed by a sturdy aluminum-framed T-top with canvas laced in. It has four rod holders across its aft end and two deck lights for night work. As well as being bolted to the deck, the T-top is fixed to the console and proved to be perfectly rigid.
The fascia of the console has a huge space for flush mounting a large cabinet electronic unit. The top of the console is bare save for the compass and, while gimbal mounting electronics will impede the skipper’s vision, a short lip on its aft end will make this a valuable place to stow loose items that need to be handy to the crew.
The helm wheel is mounted on a multi-positioned hub installed to the left of centre and the binnacle throttle is low down out of the way. The AM/FM radio, its speakers and the battery-isolation switch are located in the lower aft-facing panel of the console.
There is a double seat moulded into the front of the console, which completes the 'circular' seating for those relaxing in the bow.
The inside of the console has been designed primarily to be used as a head, although people large in stature may have problems maneuvering in and out. An unpacked portable toilet was stored in the console when we viewed it and it comes standard in the price.
Behind a hatch inside the console, one finds the battery system stowed low down to reduce the centre of gravity. Aside from the potential for this area to be a head, it does provide excellent lock-up facility for gear that you want to leave on board when the boat is on the trailer. We imagine hanging lure bags and vertical rod racks would add further practicality to this boat.
MECHANICAL AND HULL
- Foam filled for buoyancy and a quiet ride
The Sea Star hydraulic steering system featured a bull-horn-style ram and worked perfectly teamed up with the Yamaha 150hp four-stroke outboard.
Around 2007, Sea Fox moved away from the typical foam-filled hull technology, that is, the type that uses rigid foam as part of the structural integrity of the hull.
Instead they now feature a hull that is hand laid up in the mould, with seven layers of traditional woven rovings to which a hollow fibreglass stringer system is adhered, before filling with foam.
Other buoyancy is installed below deck, while topside cored-fibreglass construction adds to the floatation.
Sea Fox states that it has attained a ratio of 60 per cent foam above the deck and 40 per cent below. This inclusion of buoyancy also deadens a lot of ambient water noise coming through the voids.
With a Carolina-style flared hull and 19-degree deadrise we weren’t surprised at the slick performance from the 209 on a day of less-than-perfect-boat-testing weather. But even in the rough stuff we reckon it'll excel.
ON THE WATER
- Sufficient power from the Yamaha 150

The 209 cut the water nicely and maneuverability was excellent, with a soft ride over steep wash with little ‘pounding’.
The boat is rated to 175hp but the 150 yamaha four-stroke performed admirably. Perhaps if carrying huge payloads you might want to opt for the extra horses. But generally speaking it was ample power.
It was hard to gauge at what point we got on the plane as the transition out of the hole was seamless.
At 2600rpm we were running at 17.3 knots and at 3000rpm cruise we were doing 22.5 knots. WOT was at 5400rpm and 47 knots.
With only analogue instrumentation, fuel consumption figures are missing from this review. But what was obvious to us is that, for the price tag, this is one heck of a good starting point for those that want a serious offshore fisher.A good chart plotter/depth sounder and a set of out riggers and you will be ready to take on the next run of blacks that migrate along our coast.
