20' SeaCraft Center Console Brochure
The 20' Center Console was a designed in 1967 with the avid fisherman in mind. Wide open deck area, raised deck in the bow section, storage lockers and bait wells. Options of an 80hp or 125hp motors with cruising speeds of 35 and 40mph respectively. A fishing boat that could handle the rough ocean waters.
During one of Moesly's back-water boating trips, he saw a flats boat, very open and with the helm in the center of the boat, rather than on the side as was the current popular style. Not wanting to risk too much in tooling time to test this new concept, Moesly took the 19' Bowrider hull, split it from the deck line down to where the curve of the stem met the keel, spread the bow section out until the boat length would be 19'8". He also spread out the sides at the chine to create a flattened area to act as a spray deflector resulting in a dryer ride.
A grid system was introduced for the stringers and thwartship supports for the cockpit sole. The cockpit sole was raised to be self draining and sealed to act as another bottom if the hull was punctured or, if capsized, to trap floatation air. This totally new design went into production with only a few built and then Moesly waited for the public's response.
Six months later, the design caught the attention of the fisherman, and orders began coming in. It became one of his best sellers.

The 20 Master Angler shows the classic lines of a SeaCraft center console, with its high sides, flared bow and notched transom. There's a small foredeck (with storage locker below) and the wide gunwales start forward and narrow moving aft. Underneath are recessed hand rails and, on the port side, lockable racks for eight fishing rods. The open foredeck serves a casting platform and doubles as a 280-quart in-deck fishbox.
The high sides translate to a maximum cockpit depth of 2 feet. The helm station features a pair of pedestal seats and a large instrument panel, protected by a tall windscreen. There's a hinged cooler seat ahead of the console and more storage in a 125-quart compartment underneath the deck, forward.
The 20 Master Angler rides a variable deadrise hull, with three longitudinal sections. The outer (at the chines) is relatively flat and the inner (at the keel) is a deep-vee, with a moderate section in between.
SeaCraft Marine Industries was founded by South Florida angler Bill Potter in the late 1960s. Its first major success, the 20 SF, debuted in the early '70s, and more than 1,700 of the tough fishing boats were sold during that decade. In that time, SeaCraft boats became sought-after for their fishability and offshore performance. In fact, the company held the Miami-Nassau speed record for a twin-outboard boat in the '70s. The 20 Master Angler debuted in 1975. SeaCraft went out of business in the mid-1980s and was revived by Tracker Marine in 1996. The boats are still built today. Excerpt from a Soundings article by
