Like all boats by Stamas Yachts, the Aegean is built like a M1A Abrams tank. Sporting an aggressive entry, which transitions to 20 degrees at the transom. The bonded stringer system is constructed of kiln-dried fir fully encapsulated in fiberglass. There's no scrimping on resin either, so don't expect to hear any squeaks or shudders while underway. The boat punched through wakes without hesitation and was predictable even in tight turns. At rest, you could balance a champagne flute without spilling a drop.
Those attributes all lend themselves to a serious island-hopping or canyon-running machine. Hardcore anglers will appreciate the many standard features, including the full bait prep center behind the helm, which includes a deep sink with fresh water, cutting board, locking tackle storage and tool rack. A 92-quart baitwell with a circulation system holds plenty of sardines for the day while the 235-quart insulated fish box, also in the transom, easily swallows a chunky tuna or two. Two more insulated coolers (57 and 71 quarts) sit under the seats. Four rod holders in the covering boards are augmented by horizontal racks below. A Taco Grand Slam outrigger package can be added to the standard hardtop, which comes with rod holders and spreader lights. A mister system, full enclosure and remote spotlight are also available options.
