The low sheer and sleek looks of this bay boat match its high-speed performance. The forward casting deck is recessed which provides a nice toe kick. Twin rod lockers, which can handle up to a 10-foot rod, flank an anchor locker and dry storage compartments.
Double steps, in the hull’s running surface, lessen the wetted surface for better performance and fuel efficiency. The large bow casting deck has two deep rod storage boxes that are insulated and double as fish boxes, perfect for the over-sized kingfish or dolphin.
With a 79-gallon fuel tank and a super-efficient single-stepped hull, the range of this boat would be farther than you could possibly travel in a full day round trip. That equates to fuel savings and peace of mind when you’re exploring back bays or running offshore to the Gulf Stream.
Versatility best describes the Pathfinder 2600 TRS that gives an angler the ability to fish the bays and light offshore in the same outing. The shoal draft will give you access to many of the flats reserved for much smaller boats. The bays and just inside the inlet would rarely be rough enough to be uncomfortable.
If you’re planning on using your bay boat more for offshore fishing you might want to choose this one with features that emulate an offshore deep V hull. The large center console has a big boat feel and enough room for a head that is accessed through a front door on the console. Locking rod storage and insulated fish boxes are forward under the casting deck
The large forward casting deck on the 2200 Pure Bay includes two insulated storage boxes, a long insulated fish box and locking rod storage with a unique shelf to protect your reels from damage. Castnet storage in the floor is just forward of the console seat baitwell.
The new hull design, with an integrated step, is the biggest feature that stands out on the Dorado 25. It’s somewhat of a departure from the hull shape that the company is best known for, but they did keep true to their heritage with the low freeboard, flat transom and Porta Bracket-mounted outboard.
If you want a bay boat to run at bass boat type speeds, then this hull with a high-performance pad bottom will give you the exhilaration you’re looking for. The sleek hull design is more than just aesthetically pleasing; it has the completely flat deck you would normally associate with a flats boat but the higher freeboard that bay boats are noted for.
Having an offshore fishing boat doesn’t mean you have to compromise on family features. At the bow are twin-padded lounges that allow you to face forward while underway. Remove the cushions and backrest and the long insulated compartments below the seating become fish boxes.
Performance meets style is the best way to describe the Blue Wave 2400 Pure Bay. Computer engineering combined with over 40 years of boat building experience has produced a bay boat that meets the needs of the most demanding angler and looks good doing it.
