Bay Boat Ideas

My parents are looking at getting a new bay boat and we went shopping today. We looked at some Tritons and Makos, and they look really nice. So i was wondering if y'all know of any good bay boats that y'all have or have ridden on. (pics would be nice) Thanks

Those are really nice but I think we are looking for something a little bigger we are actually just using it for freshwater lake fishing we just like the look of the center console and the clean fiberglass look.

I would get a Triton. They have a deep V-hull and ride great in rough water. A good 175 or 200 hp Mercury or Yamaha outboard would make the boat even better. Plus, I think Triton offers a galvanized trailor which wont rust.

Best of luck!

Pioneer powered by a Suzuki 150/175! It's what I roll in off shore and it does just fine. Pioneer is exactly like Scouts. Were owned by two brothers, but I guess they had a fallin out and one left and started Pioneer.

I have an 18' Sea Pro center console and I love it. Granted if you're looking for new the parent company discontinued Sea Pro in 2009. They were nice featured boats for the money though. Maybe not high end like a Whaler but also didn't carry the price tag. I'd love a new 20' Hydra Sports or Grady White center console but the budget will never allow for that lol.

how about you tell us how big and how much they are looking to spend. You can go from a key west boat that is 17" and around 15k to a Gause boat that is 26" and 150K lol

Um am I missing something? Because thats the first negative thing I've ever heard about a grady. Why would it not be good? because the hull will last forever and can take any water? Or cause it can handle twin 250s. Yeah who wants to be stable, go fast, and have room for five to fish comfortably? Maybe not a good flats boat or row boat but other than that it'll handle any job on the water. Have you ever gone fishing when the wind is blowing, have fun on that 18' mako or better yet a whaler or carolina skiff. What are yall smokin down there in tehas
these are the best there are

how much are they looking to spend? lower price best bay boat would be a Pathfinder $40Kish http://www.pathfinderboats.com/boat-...9&t=1448874876 but if you want to go all out go with the Yellowfin 24 80Kish http://www.yellowfinyachts.com/24bay.htm or just go all out and buy a Gause 26 for $150k http://gausebuiltboats.com/

I am saving for the Yellowfin 24 it is by far the best boat for the money you can buy it has a full fishing deck and being 24' you easily go out 30 miles without any worries. The Gause boat is the lambo of all boats but to me its way over kill
