Pathfinder Boats Unveils new Pathfinder 2600 HPS Bay Crusher
FORT PIERCE, FL, December 17, 2012 — Maverick Boat Company Inc, (MBC), builders of the Pathfinder brand of bay boats, announced the release of its newest Pathfinder, the 2600 HPS Bay Crusher. The latest addition to the fully revamped Pathfinder model line –up, the boat is designed to offer offshore running and fishing capability never before seen in a trolling motor compatible bay boat with a 15” draft. At 26’ 2” and with an 8’10” beam, the Bay Crusher has substantially increased casting deck space fore and aft, 27” of interior freeboard at midships and a large, unencumbered cockpit.
Designed for high performance running in big-water conditions, the hull’s running surface combines a technical arrangement of two steps, lifting strakes and a bustle transom, and accepts up to a single 350 HP outboard mounted on a standard 6” jackplate. The boat comes with a gelcoat –matched fiberglass cooler that doubles as a console seat, designated cast net and battery storage boxes in the floor and 5 large dry storage compartments. Additional standard features include two livewells (15 gallon bow and 48 gallon stern with 1100 GPH pump), lockable and under gunwale rod storage for rods to 9’ and a forward 80-gallon insulated bucket that can be converted from dry storage to a fishbox with an optional macerator. Other notable options are a newly designed fiberglass hardtop, a third livewell, aft deck seating, dual 10’ Blade Series Power Poles and an array of two-tone color packages.
“We’ve had this boat in development for quite a while now to be sure that the finished product would offer something truly unique to the market. In our opinion, the Bay Crusher does that and more. Imagine chasing birds offshore one hour and pitching to potholes on the flats the next. I know this boat is going to completely change the way I fish, and I expect it will do the same for a lot of other serious anglers,” commented Scott Deal, CEO and president of MBC.
