The only .160 thick aluminum hull bay boat

The Bay Pro’s Excelleration™ Pad Hull is engineered to provide the highest degree of performance, stability, handling and seaworthiness. Meticulous detail differentiates the Excel Bay Pro from others.

The Bay Pro pad lift hull with its many contours is the only .160 thick hull in the industry – making our boats the toughest. Simply said, the pad hull gets on step quickly and once running, the boat rides on the center low-friction flat surface for exceptional speed, while the outside reverse chines trap water for a dry ride and superb handling.

Rear Jump Seats & Storage Boxes

The fold-down twin jump seats convert the flat rear deck into the best two seats in the boat. If you get tired of driving, simply commandeer one of these comfortable seats and relax. Why not, you are the captain. The jumps seat also opens to a large storage box below.

Plus, check out the cooler, the lean post with fold down step, vertical rod holders on the back rest and hold-on handle in front of the jump seat. Although, you probably won’t need them since this is the most comfortable ride in the boat.

183-220 RodStorage

Water Resistant Rod Boxes

The two front lockable boxes hold up to 12 fishing rods, 6 in each. The boxes are designed with a recessed water lip under the cover that channels water away from the box and on to the floor where it drains into the bilge area. This allows you to put rods and other items in the box where they will be guarded from rain and wave splash.

Although these boxes are water resistant, water from high pressure or wash-down pumps can work its way up under the lid and into the box, so please be careful when cleaning.

Loaded Console

Our bay console has it all. The list is clearly worth mentioning, a removable tinted windshield and stainless grab rail that tip down for low garages, full set of gauges, switches with resetable breakers, 12v plug, mounting space for your fish finder, stainless five-spoke steering wheel w/steering knob and gauge option, optional hydraulic steering, 6 side rod holders and a 16 gallon livewell on the 203 and 220 models, and great storage below with a hinged access door. And, an up front three-tray tackle center built into the console padded seat-back. First class indeed.

Performance, Functionality & Craftsmanship

Other features include flip-up jump seats with storage, deluxe center console with rod holders, leaning post, two livewells and over 31 cubic feet of storage. Our proprietary low-slip floor coating ensures secure footing and twin floor drains keep it dry. The Bay Pro represents an exceptional combination of performance, functionality, fishability and craftsmanship.
