Pathfinder Fusion 2100

Take a ride and photo journey on the Pathfinder Fusion 2100.

Pathfinder aptly named the Fusion 2100, combining the fishing attributes of a flats skiff with the comfortable ride and go-more-places qualities of a bay boat. But you won't find this boat new at any dealership; you'll have to look at the used boat market. With the continual progression of boat building, Pathfinder stopped production of this model a couple years ago. But it's still worth a look!

Flush forward and aft casting decks and wide, walk-around gunnels feature snagfree hardware. A dedicated effort to limit weight while maintaining strength in key areas allows an 11-inch draft. Lightweight, high density, closed cell foam Compsys Prisma beams create rigidity with a system of below-deck mini-stringers. Aluminum backing plates provide a solid base for the leaning post and trolling motor. Standard equipment includes recessed trim tabs, hydraulic jack plate, 24-volt trolling motor wiring, stainless steel rub rail and two 5-bank rod racks on the console. A 25-gallon aft livewell and in-deck castnet locker make life easy for live-baiters. Length is 21 feet, beam is 7 feet, 10 inches. Weight is 2,560 pounds. Maximum horsepower, 250.
