Weldcraft Launches Cuddy King to Overtake the Ocean of Offshore Designs

July 7, 2009

Weldcraft takes the aluminum offshore hull to new lengths with the introduction of two new Cuddy King models, the 280 and 300. With ocean fishing opportunities expanding each season, Weldcraft dealers were clamoring for something shoppers couldn’t find elsewhere: a true open-water design that not only looks good, but performs in challenging sea conditions and offers exceptional room.


The Cuddy King lineup includes 24-, 26-, 28- and 30-foot models, each available with multiple cabin lengths and flexible configurations. Both the 240 and 260 Cuddy King models feature a trailerable 81?2-foot beam, ¼-inch bottom and tall 40-inch sides for plenty of comforting freeboard.

“Most builders are adding offshore hulls to their line, but this one is different. Don’t expect to see an adaptation of our other hull designs. We approached the Cuddy King with a clean sheet of aluminum and integrated the best attributes of offshore designs from around the globe,” said Jerry Wooley, Executive VP and COO of Renaissance Marine Group.

In addition to the advanced new hull design, Cuddy King overcame another shortcoming buyers have voiced. Storage is always in great demand and short supply in other brands. The Cuddy King, however, won’t get lumped into that category. Under-floor storage runs the full length of the cabin and V-berth. The rear deck’s floor fish box is large enough for limits of tuna, halibut and bottomfish. A transom bait box with split cutting-board lid keeps every essential angling tool in close reach. Depending on the model, there are up to a dozen additional compartments and storage features.

For that discriminating boat buyer who demands performance, and the attributes missing in other offshore hulls, the Weldcraft Cuddy King is worth a look, worth a ride, and worth the investment.

Weldcraft Marine Industries, Inc. has been the leader in building quality welded aluminum boats since 1968. Today, Weldcraft manufactures and distributes through independent marine dealers a full line of boats from 17 to 30 feet. Weldcraft is a Renaissance Marine Group, Inc., company.
