So I guess I donít get these new style ďbay/family combosĒ coming out. Makes no sense.

I am not sure about that bow seating either I think it will definitely help sell boats. Personally I prefer a little more of a casting area up front.

I donít understand the bow seating either. I walk the wide gunnel on my 2800 hybrid often. With this you have to step down and then back up. Also I have a ram mount on the gunnel to hold the head of my ulterra from bouncing. It looks like you wonít have that option because the hand rail is now where the ram mount would go. Other than the front seat area I love the layout. If the front bow could be a small forward deck and keep everything else the same it would be perfect for my style of fishing.

I wish my 2800 pure hybrid had the toe space area along the forward gunnel like the open does.

The bow area can be filled to turn it into a well sized, very usable casting deck.

As far as the floor, the hybrid has a supersized fish box, i know this boat also has a fish box, but i don't know the exact dimensions. Since it has a larger fuel tank, i would assume some of the fish box was used to accommodate this.

Yes you hit the mark on that seating upfront I think thatís pretty obvious to the testosterone oriented individual.I was showing the boat to my wife and she said oh it would be so easy to fill that spot in and make a nice casting area and wala BW posted that updated photos. Looks great BW another issue solved.

Painfully slow release of photos And information but youíre holding a lot of peoples attention.Canít wait for some overhead full view photos.

Next week we we go to see the boat in person.

Agreed they should release it all at once so we donít have to wonder and guess at whatís going on. Iíve never been a fan of filler platforms so Iíd love to see more about how they incorporated support and what not. Itís a beautiful boat anyhow.

Few notes, In that one bow picture it looks like it has some type of deck insert to create a bigger casting deck, not a bad idea.

I love the coffin box, I wonder what happens to the storage under it? Maybe a ram tilt or something I hope they scrap it and just extend the fuel tank to add another 25-50 gallons

If they post that it has under 125 gallons I'll be disappointed, it really should be 150.


I hope they don't jack the prices way up on these to 150K now that they have everyone's attention, 100K is fair and keeps it in range for a hell of a lot more people.


Last comment, I hope they make an option to keep the entire front deck from the Pure Hybrid and get the back deck of the open. To me that's the ultimate Tampa/Bay west coast of Florida layout.

I agree on everything you have said, and I can think of several modification simple modification for the bow area on the hybrid.

BOOM,

They just replied to my question that it will have 135 gallons and the Coffin box kills that one in deck storage, no worry from me on that.




I'll be buying one within the year, done deal. If I wasn't moving back to Florida from Barbados this summer I would be in line to get one right now, t0o much on my plate. Maybe after the holidays.

Single 350 Zuke, can't see any reason to go with twins.

135 gallons while getting 3+ mpg is a lot of range. I may move to the open in a year or two as well. I love my 28 pure hybrid.

Interesting layout but I don’t like the seat/leaning post configuration. I guess it’s the new trend for multi-tier cushions/seating configuration but a simpler leaning post/tackle station with additional rod holders would be more functional.

I agree reed that the front seating area seems “bow rider” like.

Underneath the lebroc seats there is a tackle station. The also offer a baitwell leaning post and a traditional style leaning post.

We will often sit three across on the leaning post in the I do like the large single live well aquarium option.

Performance looks good with the single 350 Suzuki at 56/57 mph with the hybrid. Does anybody have any real world experience with the boat with a single 350 loaded ready to fish?

My 2800 pure hybrid has a single 350 Suzuki on it. I to delivery with 24 pitch props on the Suzuki and with a light load saw 59.1 mph. Loaded for fishing (live wells full, gear and two guys) I saw 54-55 mph. I ended up trying 22.5 pitch props and what I currently have on the boat to make the plane time a little quicker which it did help with. I ran the boat yesterday with my family of 5 to go have lunch (fishing gear stays in the boat) and we hit 53 mph with 22.5ís. I think I am going to switch back to the 24ís because I lost almost 4-5 mph at all cruise rpms with the smaller props. With the 22.5 props I see 2.7-2.8 mpg. The 24 pitch props would get 3.0-3.2 mpg. Boat currently has 57 hours.

Surely this boat in any form is going to be significantly higher than &100K?
it must be the best priced 28í boat on the market.


i looked at the hybrid a couple years ago and it is definitely a big ďbayĒ boat.

The 2800 pure hybrids were going for 100-110 (boat motor trailer) when I bought mine a couple months ago. From what Iím being told the new open is 9-10k more, but supposed to have more standard options. Not sure what those options are though.

Well I was able to step aboard Makaira this afternoon and she is very impressive. The boat is big and broad the aft cockpit reminds me of the Seahunter Floridian.

The bildge access and all the plumbing and mechanical acess is outstanding.

I will Iíll work on more info from my desk top tomorrow.
It is a game changer for many reasons and I will leave it at that for tonight.
