2020 Sea Pro 248 Bay Series
The flagship of the Sea Pro Bay Series, the 2020 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 - or the fish - strikes.
The full composite wood-free hull is finished in a beautiful reverse hull color pattern, with white deck and hull sides and a Royal Blue hull bottom. 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. 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 Yamaha F300XCA digital shift four-stroke outboard mounted on an Seastar jack plate. This setup guarantees plenty of performance whether you’re fishing inshore or running offshore. You can keep track of performance using the Yamaha digital gauge at the helm, and you the Simrad 12” touch screen unit with thru Hull transducer electronics package provides GPS and sonar.
In addition to standard features like dual battery setup with ACR switch, swim step with folding ladder, Wetshound 4 speaker stereo system, raw water washdown and Seastar tilt hydraulic steering with Power Assist, Sea Pro Connect / Boat Fix Tracking this 248 is packed with options, too.

One of the original owners of SEA PRO Jimmy Hancock, along with former Tidewater Boats founder Preston Wrenn are excited to bring about the resurrection of a legend in the mid-tier center console salt water fishing boat market.
