The flagship of the Sea Pro Bay Series, the 2019 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 Suzuki's DF300 four-stroke outboard mounted on an Atlas jack plate. This setup guarantees plenty of performance whether you’re fishing inshore or running offshore. You can keep track of performance using the Suzuki digital gauge at the helm, and you the Simrad NSS7 EVO3 electronics package provides GPS and sonar.
In addition to standard features like dual battery setup with ACR switch, swim step with folding ladder, Fusion 4 speaker stereo system, raw water washdown and tilt hydraulic steering, this 248 is packed with options, too. We’ve added the factory hard top T-Top with cooling misters, trim tabs, underwater lights, fresh water tank with shower, tempered glass windshield, plumbed release well, 4 additional stainless steel flush-mount rod holders in the gunnels, helm pad, Deluxe leaning post with fold down armrests and flip-up bolsters, a slide out cooler tray, forward seating package with removable armrests and backrests, 30” LED light bar and upgraded LED lighting package.
Stop by our Englewood location and see this boat as well as the rest of the Sea Pro lineup. We look forward to showing you the many features and benefits these boats offer and why Sea Pro should be your next boat.
