The Canyon Bay 2475 doesn’t appear to be nearly 25 feet until you start going through the hatches, livewells and casting deck space; at that point you realize this is a lot of boat. The boat jumps on plane very quickly, partially due to the negative trim angle in the transom and the 250 horses pushing it.

Jeff Seyler, general manager, says that there’s no real need for so much horsepower, in fact he mentioned that he’s looking forward to testing a boat with a 135 hp engine. The boat as tested will top out around 54 mph. If you’re in the market for a bay boat, that when the weather’s right can go offshore, the Canyon 2475 should be on your list of boats to check out.
