Deep-V Boat

The ultimate Water Utility Vehicle.



For families who love to do it all, the FS185 is the best aluminum boat for the job. Designed to satisfy the requirements for practically every on-water activity, the FS185 is fully equipped for fun—and with a variety of color options to choose from, this fish & ski boat looks great, too. For angling, the FS185 features a lighted aft livewell with timer plus a large in-floor rod locker with organizer. For play, your crew can relax on the optional bow cushions with combing pads while enjoying the sweet sounds from the premium Fusion® stereo with dock for iPod®. For added comfort and utility, the innovative flip-up aft bench quickly converts from seating to an open fishing deck. With your choice of Mercury® outboard (up to 150 hp), the FS185 delivers nonstop action.
