    Found a great catfish boat a few weeks ago, after I decided that the old deck boat was just too impractical for catfishing. I sold it, and the next day found the perfect boat for me.......a Duracraft Cat Master.

    It has a 30 gal. aluminum bait tank, 67 gallon livewell, A river bar rod holder, a Lowrance 522 gps/locator, 115 Yamaha, center console, and it is 20' long by 96" beam.

    Sweet ride,
    This must be a new boat. I looked at a used duracraft bay when I was shopping but would have liked to ran accross a boat like this.
    Congrats-Duracraft makes a great boat.

    Those are nice boats, another member "Crazy" has one just like it. Seems like Duracraft had it right, and then they just quit making them?

    Apparently....I can't even get a manual for it. See, Duracraft went under shortly after these boats were built. Rescued by, I think, Bentley?, anyway it seems to be off the charts and outta sight now. It is a great, great rig. It is the favorite boat I've ever owned, and I don't see me ever selling it. All metal transom means it will never rot out, unlike a couple of boats I've owned. They should build them again. The nearest they have now is a bay boat.

    Interesting very interesting! Never seen another boat like mine ever never thought I would either. Your boat looks like it has never been used. I can give you a little info on the boat not much but some. My boat was an 2004 I think thats the same hear Duracraft went under and sold to Bentley (mercury). They had like 76 different models/configuration of boat at the time they went under. At least thats what I was told. Bentley has no idea about our boats I can tell you that. On a side note. Watch the hinges and all screws that are in the inside of your boat. There just self tapping sheet metal screws that like to come out over time. Also I would suggest changing the configuration of your rod rack. a little I'll send you some pic's of mine.
