The 861 has been drooled over by pro-staff members and sales representatives for months, but is now available for order. The 861 represents a new breed of War Eagle models that is loaded with standard equipment, hull features, and all the bells and whistles.
The 861 is built on an 18-degree V-hull giving it an unbelievably smooth ride. The deeper V and high side depth keeps you from being pushed around on windy days. Like all War Eagle models, the 861 has our acclaimed wings transom design for the best maneuverability and handling. The hull of the 861 also has a reverse chine making it easy to turn and easy to drive.
The 861 is rated for engines up to 115 horsepower. However, it runs great with smaller engines too. In water tests, it has ran at 34 mph on GPS with a 2-stroke, 50 horsepower engine. The option of a smaller engine and all the standard equipment make this model very affordable. If you are looking for a year round fishing rig, this is a great investment.
