The flagship of the Sea Pro Bay Series, the 2021 248 Bay is great for the person looking for a boat that can fish near shore and inshore, but still be capable of running out into open water when the mood - and the fish - strikes.
The full composite wood-free hull on this 248 is finished in full white hull color, contrasting nicely with the black powder coat and platinum upholstery. Not just good looking, the hull is backed by a 10 year limited warranty, plus the rest of the boat is covered by the incredible Sea Pro 5 year limited warranty. Very roomy at 24' 8" in length with an 8' 9" beam, the boat features plenty of storage, such as twin locking rod boxes up front that can hold eight 8.5' rods, a large fish box forward and extra storage at the rear casting deck. All hatches are beefy fiberglass and fully finished on both sides with stainless steel hinges and latches. One of the innovative features of this boat is Sea Pro's unique manifold system that manages drainage of water from the boat using one thru hull located at the transom - there's no thru hulls on the flanks for a clean look that's easy to maintain. The self bailing non-skid deck stays dry thanks to drains hidden under a stainless steel cover on the aft deck, and all of the hardware from pull-up cleats to hinges and cup holders is top quality stainless steel.
Power on this boat is Suzuki's DF300 four-stroke outboard mounted on a Sea Star jack plate. This setup guarantees plenty of performance whether you’re fishing inshore or running offshore. You can keep track of that performance using the Suzuki digital gauge at the helm, and the twin Simrad NSS12 EVO3 electronics package provides GPS and sonar.
In addition to standard features like dual battery switch with ACR, swim step with folding ladder, AM/FM/Bluetooth Wet Sounds 4 speaker stereo system, raw water washdown and tilt power assist hydraulic steering, this 248 is packed with options. We’ve added the factory hard top T-Top, trim tabs, DLX tackle storage, tempered glass windshield, forward seating package with removable back and arm rests, and the deluxe leaning post with fold down armrests and flip-up bolsters.
