Bay Boats at The 2016 Miami Boat Show

SOME OF THE Bay Boats THAT CAUGHT OUR EYE DURING MIBS 2016.

SeaVee 270Z

SeaVee 270Z

SeaVee 270Z: This biggest of the bay boats is the smallest in SeaVee’s line. It is built to shine as a sturdy fishing platform on large, exposed bays and coastal areas, and it’s ready to sneak offshore from time to time.Christopher Balogh
Scout 231 XS

Scout 231 XS

Scout 231 XS is a sleek, rakish sportster like an aquatic Ferrari with enough rod storage and livewells to satisfy even the most uncompromising tournament angler.Christopher Balogh
Contender Boats 25

Contender Boats 25

Contender 25 is also at home in fairly skinny water, thanks to its 12-inch draft. And its aggressive double-stepped hull makes it ready to head offshore when conditions — the water, the weather and the bite — warrant.Christopher Balogh
Barker 26 Calibogue Bay

Barker 26 Calibogue Bay

Barker 26 Calibogue Bay: By definition, bay boats are designed to cross large expanses of open water and fish in fairly ­shallow depths. The Barker 26 aces that assignment, and it also affords you the ­opportunity to chase dolphin or sailfish offshore when the weather settles.Christopher Balogh
Wellcraft 241 Tournament

Wellcraft 241 Tournament

The Wellcraft 241 Tournament aims to welcome those scaling back from bigger boats, people looking for something towable with a half-ton pickup but unwilling to trim the fishing fun. It’s also perfect for those ready to move up to a center-console at home in shallow water but game for bluewater adventure on the right days.Christopher Balogh
