Think of a place you want to go on the water and the DLV Series can get you there at the right price. The heart and soul of the DLV lays in its unsinkable, all-fiberglass, modified-V hull, designed for offshore excursions. But the real beauty of the DLV is its wide beam and 6- to 8-inch draft, enabling you to navigate across shallow flats, up coastal rivers and even into tidal creeks.

Whether you want to tool the rivers and bays in the 17-foot DLV 178 with a 90 HP or roar offshore in a 25-foot DLV 258 with a 200 HP, the DLV Series comes in five different sizes to suit your boating needs.

Every DLV comes standard with a spacious console, fuel tank, high-speed bilge pump, cushion seat set, built-in cooler and plenty of storage space for all the family's gear.

Popular options for the DLV include a Bimini top made with durable Sunbrella® fabric or a T-Top, complete with rod holders and docking lights. Step up your seating with a deluxe leaning post featuring extra storage and expedite your fishing activities with a built-in cutting board and bait station.

If snorkeling or diving is more your passion, consider adding a swim platform with telescoping fold-up ladder. With a just couple of upgrades, you'll have a boat that can truly do it all without breaking the bank.
