Sea Eagle 375fc FoldCat Review: Boat Overview
The Sea Eagle 375fc FoldCat pontoon boat is the perfect fishing platform — combining stability, an elevated sitting position, and outstanding portability.
Like the Sea Eagle Stealth Stalker 10, the 375fc’s attractive new hunter green color does a great job of allowing the boat to blend in with natural surroundings.
Supported by a broad base which is reinfoced by Sea Eagle’s patented folding frame design, the 375fc FoldCat can handle unevenly distributed weight without tipping. The pontoon design also allows this boat to go places that other boats would never be able to reach, making it the perfect boat for getting to those hard to reach fishing spots.
The Sea Eagle 375fc FoldCat comes with two comfortable swivel seats, and the highly customizable design allows for a variety of accessories to be added (such as a canopy, motor, etc.).
The Sea Eagle 375fc FoldCat comes with full NMMA and CE certification.
The patented folding frame design for the super light aluminum cross boards gives the floor outstanding strength and stability, and the padded 360 degree swivel seats are perfect for fishing.
The 375fc also features four convenient carry handles, oarlocks and oars, a Scotty Rod mount system, and a full fabric floor.
Pontoon Boat Design
Inflated, the 375fc FoldCat’s exterior measures 148″ x 54″, which provides ample space for two people. The boat weighs in at 75 pounds and can support a maximum load of up to 650 pounds.
The 375fc FoldCat basically has two floors. First, there’s an aluminum cross board floor which helps to stabilize the boat and acts as a rigid platform which anglers can stand or sit on. Underneath that, there’s also a full fabric floor that runs the entire length of the boat. This floor can support electric batteries, lures, tackle boxes, and more.
Deflated, the Sea Eagle 375fc FoldCat folds up to just 56″ x 21″ x 10″. As far as setup goes, it’s very user-friendly. Simply roll it out and insert four underbars under the aluminum cross boards. Then, inflate the boat and set it up. You can easily be done and on the water in less than 10 minutes, which means you’ll spend less time getting the boat in the water and more time fishing.
The 375fc FoldCat is made out of a durable, reinforced 1100 Decitex, and it has quadruple overlap seams. This boat was built to last a very long time, and the molded nose cones add to the boat’s excellent overall durability.
When it comes to motors and speed, the boat’s maximum engine capacity is 3HP with a max engine weight of 44 pounds. Speeds of 8 mph are possible with a gas motor, and up to 4 mph with an electric motor.
The recommended inflation pressure of the Sea Eagle 375fc is 3.2 psi.
