The flagship of the Sea Pro Bay Series, the 2018 248 DLX Bay Series 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 composite wood-free hull is finished in beautiful "Sea Creature Blue" color and backed by a 10 year limited warranty, plus the rest of the boat is covered by the incredible Sea Pro 5 limited year 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 APXW four-stroke outboard mounted on an Atlas jack plate. This setup guarantees plenty of performance whether your fishing inshore or running offshore. You can keep track of performance using the Suzuki digital gauge at the helm, and there's plenty of room for installation of electronics of your choice.
This 248 is packed with options, like a fully finished hard top T-Top with cooling misters, two large plumbed baitwells, Lenco trim tabs, slide out cooler tray under the upgraded leaning post seat (that features flip-up bolsters and additional tackle storage), Polk stereo with amp and subwoofer, underwater lights, fresh water shower, pump out marine head and tempered windshield. For passenger seating comfort, there's upholstered seating on the forward console seat and the rear deck features an innovative flip up bench seat that's centrally located for a dry comfortable ride.
Stop in to our Englewood location and see this boat or any of our other Sea Pro inventory. We look forward to showing you why these boats are "The Next Wave."
