Bay Boats


Dorado 23

The Dorado 23 is a boat that can fish offshore in the morning and the backcountry in the afternoon. It is 23 feet long and can easily accommodate 4 anglers with all of their gear. The use of a Porta Bracket on the transom allows you to have the outboard mounted behind the transom so you can use every square foot of the cockpit.


Alumacraft Bay Series 2072

An aluminum boat builder that has been in the industry since the forties is Alumacraft. The Bay Series 2072 is 20 feet long and 7 feet, 10 inches wide.


Andros Tarpon 26

A slight departure in styling from many of the bay boat hull designs in use today, the Andros Tarpon 26 looks more the look of a Panga. This style of hull has been battle tested over the years, especially in the Islands, and has the same great attributes.

Blue Wave 2200 Pure Bay

The Blue Wave 2200 Pure Bay has a LOA of 21 feet, 4 inches and an 8 feet, 6 inch beam. The deck layout leans more toward the fisherman but there are some very nice family features as well.


G3 Bay 18 DLX

G3 is no new comer to the boating industry so when they launched the G3 Bay 18 it was engineered to be used in saltwater. They incorporated a baked-on two part urethane hull finish and a Tuff Coat spray in interior liner.


Barracuda Boatworks Cuda 27

A deep-vee bow entry, and corresponding strakes and reverse chines, make possible Barracuda Boatworks’ Cuda 27 sharp maneuvering, hull lift and spray deflection, says Barracuda’s Dustin Bates.


Skeeter SX2250

60 years in the boat building industry is evident in Skeeter’s new Saltwater Series SX2250 Bay Boat. Designed with the serious fisherman in mind, this boat serves a dual role with a super shallow draft and a hull design that will flatten a choppy bay.


Andros Tarpon 26

Renegade Nomad 20

Steady design and ride set apart the Renegade Nomad 20. Offshore in the morning, inshore in the afternoon—both trips are feasible on the 20 Nomad from Renegade Marine. This 20-foot, 3-inch center console was designed to be superior.
