New Boats: Tides Boatworks Tides 23


The new Tides 23 from Tides Boatworks is designed for the discriminating angler, with the features tournament fishermen and guides demand. The large casting decks and wide gunwales create an efficient fishing platform for both flats and bay fishing. With a 37-gallon live well and dual 40-gallon release wells, you'll find all the room you need to maintain an abundant supply of live bait or keep tournament fish alive and healthy until weigh-in. Easily accessed plumbing and pump configurations on all wells ensure easy maintenance. Oversized eight-foot rod lockers and fly-rod tubes for rods up to ten feet keep gear secure. Lots of below-decks dry storage keeps fishing areas clear and gear safe yet handy.

The cored hull and deck, and race-proven V-Pad bottom provide a dry and comfortable ride. Expanded chine-to-chine width increases displacement and yields excellent stability with minimum draft at rest. All fittings are top-of-the-line stainless steel. The Tides 23 is available with three different console configurations.
