It’s a good little boat, very well constructed… solid. The only problem we have had has to do with a trolling motor. It takes a lot of time to insert the motor mounting bracket, and there is no easy place to put the battery. There is no comfortable place to sit and control the motor. Awkward at best. But absent that, it is a great little boat.

Sea Eagle's reply:

Thanks for the review! We recommend placing the battery box slightly forward in the boat to allow more room behind the seat as well as balance weight on the boat.

I love the Sea Eagle 9. I’ve had it out on the lake with my daughters. Setup was easy and quick. It handled great with my trolling motor.

Ordering was easy, shipping to me seemed really quick. I am totally happy with my SE9.

not too crazy about the floor boards . i like the wooden ones much better

. when shipped the insides were in backwards and i had to remove them and reinstall them. they seem to be too soft. just in case u didnt know this is the 3rd se-9 i've bought in the last 15 years. i liked the older ones better you cant use a chair on the new ones . and if u use the old wooden ones they deflate the floor boards. i bought the extended warrenty 6 years . because i'm 65 years old and after 6 years i'll be too old to haul it around. i've had some great times on ur boats but i've had 3 boats that failed one the valves all brokeoffmand im got a replacement . the replacement failed . some sort of dry rot of the hull while in storage in the basement. and one that just blew out on the seam. and was toast. just in case u want to know. it could be made of better material like zodiac boats . thanks .

Sea Eagle's reply:

Thanks for the review Walter. The material choice keeps the cost far below any reinforced PVC material. We have many boats made out of reinforced material if you would like to check them out.

For any assistance with your boat/valves or to talk about our other boats feel free to call or email anytime.

You can not stand up in it. You can not use the trolling motor on anything but still water. You can not maneuver the boat by yourself. The trailer is not that use full you will still need a second person to take on the other side. I wasted a lot on this. I could buy a small fishing boat for this price.

This is my 3rd boat from Sea Eagle and they never fail to impress me. My 2 other boats are Packfish7 for my wife and I. With this boat we absolutely love it. From the build quality to the ease from Vehicle to water in 10 mins. (Well once I got my system down) One major thing you must do before using the boat the first time is to assemble all the valves position everything nicely in the bag. That's a must. I have the fishers dream with trolling package. Once you assemble it a few times you'll be on the water in no time. The only reason I didn't give a 5 is that the Seat is a little high and with the fishers dream bracket; it hits my battery box and it won't fit under the bracket, other than that it's amazing. I've already bragged to alot of my buddies on the transportable aspects of the boat and it can fit in almost any vehicle. My wife has a lincoln MKZ and it fits perfectly in the trunk, and also a breeze in my Range Rover Velar. I can get to those hidden gem ponds and lakes. Its a must buy

This is my second one and it is working great.

The quality of the SE9 is impressive. Once we figured out how to fit the battery and seats the room in the boat is comfortable to move around.

Bought the SE9 Back in 2017 when I moved to new house & my Brother Eddie came here to Co to help me move . The first time we put the SE9 in the water was in April of 2017. I almost got a $500. Dollar ticket at Pueblo Reservoir In Co but no ticket lucky. Anyway we put the SE9 without a Honda 2.3 Gas motor, I used the Paddle to cast off in lake for a while it started raining. The next time 2019, I put the SE9 into the Lake was with My Grandson the old lady & Pokie the Dachshund. We Had a wonderful time with the Honda Gas 2.3 motor hooked up to the SE9. The Boat was very Stable I was able to stand up in the Boat. We didn't caught any Fish but that's ok too. My grandson, the lady & Pokie enjoy themselves so did I.

The SE9 is my second SE style boat from Sea Eagle. I based my recent purchase on the versatility and ease of use of my first boat. I have had the SE9 in the water only once, last September and even though this use was brief, the boat met my expectations. I especially liked the inflatable rigid bottom of the SE9, and the seat cushions. I wish Sea Eagle would supply this model with a longer oar. At 5' the standard oar is much too short to properly row this boat. Please make available a 6 1/2 to 7' oar with a 1 1/8" diameter shaft that can be used with the SE9 oar lock. I purchased the Sea Eagle recommended cig lighter electric pump for the SE9 and it promptly blew out the fuses in my vehicle the first time I used it. Ok, so I switched to the foot pump...the ring clamp which fastens the bladder to the pump frame fell off rendering the pump useless. Good thing I had a second foot pump with me. Make me feel better about Sea Eagle and refund my money for that electric pump.

Due to circumstances I have only had a chance to use my boat 1 time, but it was awesome!

It was everything and more than I expected! Very easy to setup and store. Everything worked just as advertised and is one of the best investments I have made. Can’t wait to get out this summer and use it often.

I live full time in an RV, and travel all over the country. It will be great to have it to fish and just enjoy being out on the water wherever I am! 👍🏻
