Asian Carp Fishing Boat

Several species of heavy-bodied cyprinid fishes collectively known in the United States as Asian Carp are quickly becoming a target for commercial fishermen across the country. The Elastec Inlander work boat can be customized with options to make it efficient for Asian Carp commercial fishing operations. The modified V hull with a blunt bow, high sides, and a wide stance increase the payload to double that of similar boats. The 22 ft. model has a 4,000 lbs./1,800 kg. payload and the 32 ft. model has an impressive 7,500 lbs./3,401 kg. payload. Its wide hull and 36-inch tall sides provide more stability and comfort for working over the sides than a Jon boat or a flat bottom boat.

The heavy-duty construction uses Marine-grade 5052 3/16” aluminum for added strength and durability for Asian Carp commercial fishing applications. It is available in either 22 ft. or 32 ft. lengths. Visibility over the bow is important for navigation of rivers, especially at speed. The configuration of a single outboard with a tiller optimizes the cargo space while the optional twin outboard setup with console provides higher maneuverability and bollard pull.

The Inlander can be customized with options like a shoot that can be added for net deployment and a holding area to contain fish. There is also space for a table area to assist in removing fish from nets.

The boat can be fitted with a single or twin outboards matched with console and remote control. The ELASTEC INLANDER can reach speeds of 46 mph (light) depending on choice of outboards.
