Does anyone know if sea ox boats are still made. If so were are they made and how do you reach them. I would like to by just the boat and no motor. I have an outboard already.
They are no longer made.
The past owner canned the line and started up World Class Catamarans

Well not so quick - After the Original company was closed and auctioned off two other companies tried to keep it going. Both failed in less than two years. I know why the last one did cuz I bought a 2001 - 23 foot cuddy. Biggest piece of junk on the water, had to dump it quick and I did! I know own a 1988 - 18' its a tank!
the sea ox is no longger made. thay use to manufacter a stone throw away from the boston waler plant. i have one
I had a 1979 20 CC for 18 years - fit and finish were fair but the hull ifself was solid as a rock. In fact the guy I sold it to still uses it several times a week - not that many '79's still around that look and run so well. Towards end things really went down hill - made Sea Cats but again fit finish were only fair.
I have an 85 sea ox wa cuddy bult like a tank, 175 Evenrude (gas hog) but this boat will go anywhere and take the big water like a 40 footer. Very hevy boat i wish i had time to use it more. It's FOR SALE in Ft Lauderdale FL (CHEAP!!!!) email me if you have any questions email@example.com
Sea Ox was a great boat. There are companies that have lines that are based on the hull. From what I understand Jones Brothers Cape Fisherman (NC Built Boat)is actually the old Sea Ox mold.
Just bought a Sea Ox 250c after some in depth research.
Seems that some execs from Grady White decided to split off and make some boats on their own. They started North American Fiberglass and made Sea Ox boats. Made in the same tradition as the GW's, these babys are tough. Overkill in the manufacturing process made these things practically indestructable and expensive to build.
I actually saw my boat at the Jacksonville Boat show a few years back for sale from a broker for 30k. It is a 1994(last year of production) 250c Blue water pro. This walk around cuddy is powered by a monster 7.3L V8 Mercruiser mated to a Bravo 3 outdrive with counter rotating props. When I saw it at the show the boat was pristine. All decked out with gear, it was a steal at that price. I had just bought a boat a that point and could not see a good reason to go for the gusto. I found out that the owner took the boat back and sold it privately to a guy in my neighborhood. The boat sat in the guys yard for the last few years. I saw him take it out maybe 5 times. One day I saw a "for sale" sign on the craft. I spoke to him a little about the boat. He bought it on a whim, already had 2 others and his wife hated it. So I had a motivated seller. I had a survey done on the boat, came through with flying colors. Surveyor gave a replacement cost that nearly floored me.
Long story short, picked it up for half of what a similar sized GW would cost. Only 300 ORIGINAL HOURS on the engine.
I still can't believe I found such a gem.
Need to be careful there were some boats made after 94 with the Sea Ox name, not sure about the first company but the second who was in Aransas produced some boats in 2000/2001 that were truely junk, beleive I know I bought one. I would have been better off in a 50 gallon drum!
