Default Tideline 235 Hybrid



Hey guys Iím a little bit out from purchasing a new boat. Anyone got any info on the Tideline 235.

Usage: Iíll be using to fish mainly inshore and bay. Maybe once a month I may wanna go fish 80+ miles off shore.

Trying to to see if this will be a good fit for me. If I buy Iím gonna go with the half tower and larger fuel tank.

Inshore trips will be with my two boys both one is 4 and one is 8 but offshore trips will probably with 4 guys including me

I have fished a Tideline 235 before; hell of a boat...extremely versatile. I fished the 235 on a Yellowfin trip 90 miles south of Biloxi, MS (seas were perfect that day) but the boat was extremely impressive on a long trip. The boat rides and feels much larger, several times I had to remind myself that we were on a 23. The boat performs well, is fast, and well built. I dont think you would regret your decision to buy one.

Think tht’er DestinBillMe has a new one in his charter fleet......not 100% certain, but worth a private message to confirm.
If my memory is correct, he’d be a great one to chat with.

One of the most versatile boats money can buy right now. Over built and well built. The guys at Tideline know what they are doing. We have 2,500 hours on our 2017 model. Call me if you have questions.

Preston is spot on. Extremely versitile and has been perfect in our Mississippi Sound/Northern Gulf chop. Mine is also run as a full time charter boat. Took delivery of mine in March and over the last several months and 300 hrs I have been extremely impressed with the ride, stability, fuel efficiency, build quality, the list goes on. Michael and George are great to work with and have been very focused on making sure I am completely happy with the boat.
Let me know if you have any other questions as well. Alex 662-404-0997

One day I'll own one. Really does seem like as close to a do it all boat as you can get. Drafts relatively little, offshore capable, not so large so easy enough to tow and store.

Just a few quick pics from my 235. Get the extra fuel and the 200s. Michael and George are top notch. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. We have gone from limits of trout at freemason to blue marlin at horn mountain in the same day.

How easy are they to handle inshore solo? Somewhere like the lower Pgoula, or the upper end of Biloxi bay in those rivers. Not that I could afford one any time soon, but i'd love to snatch up a used one in 5-10 years.

Just wanted to jump on here and thank our owners, both rec guys and the charter guys, for offering their input. We appreciate it and know that it holds more water coming from you guys than us.

Negative. Moving up to the 365. Delivery scheduled for Feb 2019. The new owner has apparently been burning the wheels off of her though. In my opinion the best all around boat for South MS/LA. We're just going to strictly bluewater is the only reason for selling.

Spoke on the phone with Michael the other day and I can say that he was ready to answer every question I had and was extremely informing about everything I asked him about. After my move later this month I am going to set up a trip with one of the professionals that have them.

One of the things I was the happiest about in our conversation is that he did not mind answering the warranty questions. From owning boats in the past many dealerships and manufacturers hate those questions. It immediately showed me that they are confident in their product and will stand behind the work.

I will Iíll keep this thread updated as time goes on. If I do purchase I will also start a build thread for anyone who is interested in following the process with me.
