Hybrid Boats Our Hybrid boat line has been created using the experience gained from multiple generations of boat building experience coupled with the detailed feedback of today’s anglers. Some options may be shown.
Bay boats now range from compact, lightweight 22-foot technical tournament skiffs to 26-plus-foot hybrid inshore/offshore vessels with greater cockpit depth and slightly sharper deadrise. To explore this crossover market further, we identified almost a dozen branded bay boats with cockpits measuring at least 19 inches from deck to gunwale cap.
A good example of a true hybrid bay boat is the Sea Born FX25 Bay. The 17 degree deadrise cuts through the waves offering a smoother ride but at the same time, the folding-rear-bench seat, cutting board, and leaning-post-bait well make working game fish reality.
