Sacramento Riverboat

The Vicki Ann is a 25-foot, center-console river sled built by Design Concepts. This aluminum fishing boat is powered by a 460/380 hp engine and a Berkley jet.

When you go fishing in Northern California’s Sacramento River watershed, the Vicki Ann is the boat to fish in. She has fully cushioned and convertible pedestal seats making you feel as though you’re in an easy chair. The sled design makes the boat a very stable and comfortable fishing platform. With 25 roomy feet, this boat handles a party of 6 with ease.

With an endless supply of nature around you (not to mention the fish), you’ll think you’re in a little piece of Heaven.

Design Concepts has been building sturdy boats since 1977 and is the only transportation manufacturer that offers a lifetime transferable warranty.

Built from heavy-gauge welded aluminum, using only the highest quality premium components available, these are durable high-performance boats that exceed the quality standards set by the National Marine Manufacturers Association, the American Boating and Yachting Council and the United States Coast Guard.

They are used not only by recreational anglers and professional fishing guides, but also by police, sheriff and fire departments all across America to protect our waterways and national parks. Quality is the foundation for safety, and when it comes to law enforcement, safety is the only thing that matters.

What makes Design Concepts boats stand head and shoulders above all other aluminum boats is the application of torsional rigidity. For this, structure and beam width are of the utmost importance. Using flex elimination methods, box girder construction and grid bracing, Design Concepts boats are crafted with such outstanding torsional rigidity that they are virtually indestructible. Design Concepts boats are over-engineered and are becoming the yardstick by which all other aluminum boats are measured.
