The 230 Walkaround from Caravelle is truly a fisherman’s delight. Based on the very popular outboard version Caravelle offers the 230 Walkaround in a stern drive version. She features a wood free hull construction, closed cell foam construction and the 24-degree deep V-hull offers a comfortable and stable ride. With the standard trim-tabs getting the boat trimmed out and running is made easy. One of the nicest features is how well Caravelle has utilized all the space aboard. From the large cuddy cabin to the large open cockpit this is a boat that can fit, and be enjoyed by the whole family.
Back on the stern the large swim platform and walk-through transom gate make getting on and off the boat safe and easy. And with the engine access in the aft cockpit, getting to it for routine maintenance and daily checks ins’t a chore. The transom also features aerated bait well, raw water wash down, and fish box with work station keeping everything at close reach. Under the step leading through the transom door is a built in table box, which is placed right where you’ll need ti. The engine cover doesn’t take up much room in the cockpit and it actually would serve well for placing gear when at anchor or even serve as a bench seat when fishing off the stern.
In the center of the cockpit floor there is a generous five foot long fish box, which is sure to serve well when the fish start biting. Cushions pad the side of the aft cockpit and provide comfort when leaning against them or reaching over to bring your catch onboard. There are also four stainless steel rod holds in the gunwale for storing your rods. Up forward in the cockpit there are two insulated coolers with drains that double as bench seats with cushions.
Accessed just to port of the helm is the cubby cabin. This is an excellent addition for overnight fishing trips or even a long weekend out with the family. There is a large bunk with filler cushion and to starboard is the marine head that makes overnighting a possibility. There are also two portholes with screens hatch above to provide plenty of ventilation below.
Getting to and from the bow is made easy with nice wide side decks and solid railings. Once up on the bow there is plenty to hold onto and with the integrated pulpit with anchor roller, dropping the hook should prove an easy feat. There is even a cushion up to provide a place to sit while underway or at anchor.
This is a multi-purpose boat that you can fish on Saturdays and take the family out on Sundays with high quality components.
