Default New Pathfinder Model

They are showing some sneak peeks on their IG about a new concept/model. Looks like a BIG bay hybrid. Anyone know the scoop? I know there have been rumors of a west coast hybrid for years.

I am only guessing but appears to be the 28’ Maverick, finally popping.

It won't be long before you see a 29' Bay boat. And I'll probably by it. Where I fish Bay Boats rule from customs to low production to mass produced. I love 'em all.

Well would you look at that.

Dual-engine capable? That's the question. Need something to compete with YellowFin's 26 Hybrid.

The sides look like a Pathfinder with that dimple at the back corners.

But Skip hinted a while back about a new larger Maverick.

That larger Maverick has been talked about for a while.

I’m sure Skip will be along to point this thread in the right direction.

I’d like to see them make a 26’ cat. More of a production level boat to compare to the custom options like Cayo and Calcutta.

Definitely looks like no rear deck with a front casting deck.

I agree it didn’t look like twin setup.

Skip reminds my of my old high school girlfriend with his teasing.

I will say when she did give up her little secret it was worth the wait.

This one will have to go on my hit list for sure, but I'm afraid to see the pricing. 27' and a single engine would be perfect, and hopefully they make it slightly more family friendly with a real head. I love the Yellowfin 26, but the lack of a head has taken it off the list completely. A larger hybrid style boat is perfect for the kind of boating my family does, and 27' - 28' in length really helps with the short chop we face on Tampa Bay nearly every time we go out. The single engine makes it even more appealing, as I have no desire to deal with twins, and certainly not trips.

I currently have a Pathfinder 2500 and I feel totally opposite from you. I’d like a 27-28’ that can run twin 200’s with less “comfort features” than my current boat and an open bow... Its obviously set up for a single and I have a feeling this thing is going to be more in line with your wishes than mine.

Maybe they will have 2 cap options but I’d assume no twins.
