1998 GLACIER BAY 220, Just down from up north, the owners plans have changed and this Glacier Bay has become available. Great boat for fishing or family use. Great ride, 2007 4 stroke power, well cared for. It has it all. Glacier Bays were originally engineered to meet the needs of two diverse, but demanding markets. Alaskan/ NW sportsmen, alone and subject to severe conditions amongst enormous wilderness waterways, were looking for a tough boat. While in the South Pacific, inter-island-hopping and fishing Hawaiians also sought a rugged craft. These self-reliant individuals demanded a hull with extreme capabilities and reserves of strength. as it turned out, a wide range of customers across the country have similar requirements. Glacier Bay’s high-speed, displacement hull is able to run at very high rates of speed in severe sea conditions. The sensation at the helm is very soft, and stable. However, the hull must absorb all the energy and impact of each wave, mile after mile, year after year. The integrated structure required to absorb these loads must be exceptionally strong. The grid structure in each GB includes full width athwartship bulkheads ranging in height from 7-24 inches. In addition, a multitude of ribs and stringers are combined with these bulkheads to even further enhance the strength. These components are fully encapsulated in polyester resins and bonded in with woven roving and knitted fiberglass. Sixty percent are also fiberglassed to the deck to create a fully integrated composite structure. Accelerometer testing shows Glacier Bay Cats achieve a 60 percent reduction in peak impact loads when crossing a three-foot, boat wake at 27 knots. Glacier Bay owners experience about two-thirds less impact than on a monohull. The jarring and slamming common to v-hulls is eliminated!
