8 Discount Packages available. starting at $1,199
I love this boat. It is easy to assemble, transport and use. Wish O would have found Sea Eagle years before I did. The delivery and customer support is top notch.
My experience with has been exceptional. I had a 285fpb which I kept for a long time, which I enjoyed. As time went on, I needed a more secure boat (paralyzed diaphram) which I found in the STS10. I taken it out once (it has been too cold) and now that warmer weather is here I expect to use it more. Through dealing with the Staff with the 285fpb and the STS10 has been a pleasure. They were helpful and informative. The shipping was outstanding and I was able to take some of the discounts available. I look forward to summer!
’ve had my Stealth Stalker for seven months and have taken it out on the water many times. Overall I am pleased with the boat in regards to my particular needs. As a new angler in the upper Midwest who has just gotten into bass fishing (without a trailer or a truck) it’s very handy to pack the boat away. The amazing stability is a huge plus for me. I consider this my “starter” boat, and when practical I will get a trailer for it that my smaller vehicle can tow.show full review ▼
It fits in a sedan! I have a Hyundai Elantra and was able to pack it into the back with the seats folded down without an issue. I spent my budget for my vacations that got cancelled by corona on this and it got me through the lockdown summer. It’s comfortable enough for two people but gets a little tight with a cooler. With 3 people I’d take out the front or both seats. The wood floor makes it feel a lot more stable than my parents dinghy with the inflatable floor. You do need a wind sock to stay in one place if you’re trying to fish over one spot.
Well designed and functional boat, but two complaints. First, the oars are useless- I use them as paddles. You've got to address this. Make the oarlock more stable, maybe make the oars a bit longer, limit the vertical play. This is a serious deficiency. Secondly, there's a lack of legroom when turning in the chair for a tall guy like me (I'm 6'4''); it's even caused cramping in my upper leg/butt. Probably 2'' more width on each side would make all the difference. Customer service was great when I called about an issue while setting up. Didn't get all the hardware and had to wait for second shipment of that after what had already been a long wait because you were back-ordered. So missed 6 weeks of prime fishing season.
This is really a great boat. I have had it out several times and I love it. The only issue I have had is the oars. I am not sure if they were designed this way or whether it was a manufacturing issue. The blades on the oars I received were both slightly itched in the same direction. If the pitching was intentional I would think I got either 2 left or 2 right oars. I am planning on contacting the company to pose the question to them. That is really the only issue I have with it. Other than that I would recommend it totally.

I like the boat alot but a few things to keep I'm mind.... It takes a while to unload and set it up. Better be in good shape to unload, set up, break down and pack away. The floor boards are large and will not fit in the trunk of a car and possibly not fit into the back seat of a small car. Getting them seated into the bottom of the boat isn't that easy either. You definitely need the electric pump to inflate it. Using the foot pump will take a lot of time and energy. The molded seats are cumbersome and the pedestals are too short for a taller person. Once it's all together you better be close to the water. I reccomend the large wheel set for moving the assembled boat. Getting it under the boat is a challenge though. I added a 1x6 to the aluminum rail and a short wood kick stand to keep it from rolling over. Once on the water it performs pretty well but if it's windy it will drift off course easily. I bought the Watersnake electric trolling moter and it moves along pretty well. All in all it is decent.
Love the boat it works great on the pine creek where I fish!! Only one thing is the oar mounts are not quit as sturdy as I would like when you have to row hard and fast.
We LOVE our SeaEagle STS10! We take it everywhere we go camping. SeaEagle shipped it to us in a reasonable time and kept in touch with us in the ordering/shipping process. Setting it up is not complicated at all and you can find the set up instructions on YouTube which made it even easier. We love fishing the lakes and rivers here in Florida. We have the "boat" enjoyment without the big boat price tag! We highly recommend the SeaEagle 10.
We've taken our boat to local ponds and small rivers here in Missouri. The most fun we've had with our boat was taking it to Colorado for trout fishing. This boat is just as stable on a 10 acre pond as it is on a large lake. It's so nice to be able to put the boat in the car, and travel anywhere. No longer are we sitting on the shore wanting to be on the water. The boat always brings up conversations and admiration for such a strong, well built inflatable boat. There's ample room for gear, even with 2 people. The person that thought to put in swivel chairs is a dang genius. Siting on a real fishing chair in an inflatable boat is pure luxury. Now to bring this review down to earth. With the boat, floors, floor supports, oars, chairs, engine, engine mount and battery, this boat does take up some room. It all fits in the SUV, but for longer trips, we may need to get a roof rack or small trailer. I'm sure we've helped Sea Eagle sell a few of their products by now.
