The basic package is the PHELIX, a Bass Cat painted trailer and a Mercury 25EH. This is one hot rig! The PHELIX is all fiberglass. Yep, all fiberglass. The hull, transom stringers, liner, every thing, ALL fiberglass. No composite. No wood. This baby is so strong and well-built Bass Cat backs it with a Lifetime Transferable Structural Warranty.

Baby CatThe PHELIX is great for small lakes, saltwater "backcountry" and more. Easy to clean, a hose or car wash does a fine job. The power is a Mercury 25EH. That is electric start with a "shallow water drive option". Economical? I drove this baby cat all over Stick Marsh and Farm 13 and only used about three gallons of fuel. I drove much more than I would have fishing. I was playing and scouting. The PHELIX Fisherman's Package includes a Motorguide 43 pound thrust trolling motor. This electric motor has plenty of power for the rig. It will out race a bunch of bass boats on their trolling motors!

The PHELIX Fisherman's Package includes a Mercury 25EH, custom Bass Cat Trailer, seats, trolling motor, stainless steel prop, Lowrance X-49, and a spare tire. The PHELIX Fisherman's Package is ready for a fish catching rumble.

My outing with the PHELIX was a wonderful experience. Ride, speed, stability, agility and shallow draft of the rig was very impressive. When I was done playing I drove the PHELIX on to the trailer. Just like the big boys! Just like I drive my Jaguar on to the trailer!
