The Sea Eagle 375fc FoldCat: Proof that a Good Fishing Boat is Affordable
The first thing you notice about the Sea Eagle 375fc FoldCat is its unique folding frame design — a first for a pontoon boat. Once you complete the initial assembly, each time you use it you only need to unroll it, slide the four aluminum stabilizer bars under the slats, then inflate the catamaran’s hulls. That’s it. You’re ready to load your gear and get at those fish.
A Look at the Craft
The Sea Eagle 375fc FoldCat
has a 4'6" wide beam on top of two 16" pontoons to offer incredible stability over a hard hull boat design. The inflatable catamaran can be self-powered or used with a 3 hp 4-cycle small outboard for up to 8 knots or powering upstream loaded with gear. It will also mount an electric trolling motor.

How it Performs
The Sea Eagle 375fc FoldCat weighs just 75 pounds so it’s easy to get in and out of the water. It handles two adults plus gear for a combined weight of 650 pounds. The large inflatable pontoons keep the craft riding high in the water and its wide beam design allow it to flex as it rides over choppy water and not rock from side to side like a rigid hull catamaran will. The downside is that the 375fc FoldCat doesn’t track well in a straight line, even with skegs, since the boat is light even when loaded.
The hull material is a heavy-duty 1000 Denier material that is amazingly puncture resistant so you don’t have to worry about bouncing the catamaran into jagged rocks, or getting damaged when hauling it in and out of a truck bed, car trunk, RV, or sailboat. Other inflatable pontoons are made with abrasion-resistant PVC bottoms and nylon tops and won’t stand up to such punishment. Sea Eagle’s patented folding support system sets up in as little as five minutes, with no bolts and parts to sort through like other pontoon designs.
One of the best features of Sea Eagle’s 375 FoldCat is the full floor that allows you and your buddy to move around as well as store gear on the floor. No more uncomfortable straddling with your feet on the pontoons or a front bar! In addition, standing on the deck means better leverage to haul in that big catch as opposed to trying to maintain your balance in a rowboat while fighting a fish.
You’ll Be Hooked
The Sea Eagle 375fc FoldCat is ideal for fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, or just having fun. It’s stable, economical, and certified for safety and quality by the National Marine Manufacturers Association. This award-winning inflatable catamaran has scored a rating of 9.7 out of 10 from the North American Fishing Club, America’s oldest fishing organization, and is highly recommended over other pontoon designs.
