To qualify for CPC compliancy in regard to buoyancy, the cockpit sole is foam-filled.
The ergonomically positioned centre console has a contemporary style wiith the wheel placed at a comfortable height for average sized drivers, when seated or standing with protection from the acrylic windscreen. A single seat is conveniently positioned facing forward in front of the console.
Additionally seating is formed behind the console with an upholstery covered ice chest plus the two seats moulded into the transom.
The dashboard and fascia of the helm is a good size and the Ski Angler also features a large sized stainless steel targa and bimini top.

The Ski Angler comes with a Fi-Glass manufactured trailer and a 6 year warranty on the hull.
