Ranging from the versatile 188BR to the expansive 250BR, the Bay Reef series will meet all of your inshore or nearshore fishing demands.

Whether you are a recreational fisherman or a hardcore tournament angler, there is a Bay Reef to fit you. Every model includes two standard livewells, accommodation for even the longest fly rods, and the most storage and deck space in its class. The Bay Reef series also sports a bit less draft for improved performance and a great ride.

This nimble hull design performs well with a 115 hp engine while the aggressive entry provides a smooth and dry ride.

The 188BR is the latest addition to the bay boat line up offering big water performance in an economical to own and operate package. Fishing features include front and rear live wells, generous rod storage, and a huge front casting deck. For convenience it offers easy bilge access via a lift out storage tub and both the cranking and troll motor batteries can store out of the way under the console floor.
