- Type: Outboard
Bay & Bluewater is a optional interior, maximized for fishability. She is built on the highly-regarded Albury Brothers 23 hull, the same hull our rough water reputation was built on. With the Bay & Bluewater, you can fish anywhere…from the flats, out into the open ocean. The Bay & Bluewater is built with dual 13 gallon live wells in her aft corners. Optional is a 30 gallon livewell leaning post helm seat. Additional fittings for portable livewells can also be added. The forward seats are gone, replaced with a casting platform which incorporates a second large fish box.
Inshore? Offshore? Everywhere. The Bay & Bluewater 23 can take you anywhere, from the flats, out into the open ocean. Fish the locks on your way through Lake Okeechobee, then pop out on either coast and head offshore for a day of tight lines. She draws 16”. On a falling tide, you may have to leave the flat 20 minutes earlier than other bay boats…but isn’t that small compromise worth it to get offshore capability? Equipped with a set of outriggers, she is capable of pulling a full spread of 7 lines without a tangle. Add the folding dual station “Key West” top to help find those weed patches or Cobia on the beach. How about a trolling motor on the bow to navigate the flats and take advantage of GPS anchoring while kites are out? There is always more room for additional live wells, power poles, trim tabs, a jack plate, electric reel outlets, and additional transducers.
Another Bay & Bluewater configuration we call “Skiff”. We use the narrower console and livewell/leaning post originally designed for our 20 to create extra fishing room inside. Without a Top, she’s perfect for fly fishing. Add a T-top and go after any species. There is plenty of room to fight, and boat, your catch.
