Fishing with the Pathfinder 2700 Open

This boat is a fishing machine! The livewells, plenty of rod hoders and its 43 gallon insulated fish box provide all the fishing amenitites you need! This boat can be used in both freshwater and saltwater.

With a draft of only 17″ and a 27″ length this boat can go into shallow waters and handle the waves that come with deepwaters. You can drop this beautiful vessel in lakes, rivers and bays; traveling offshore and into deeper waters.

Take your shot at popular west coast species like red drum*, snook*, grouper, and cobia. If you venture out deep enough you could catch some nice snapper and amberjack too. freshwater catfish and largemouth bass are great freshwater targets!

Crossover | They do Everything!

Being a crossover between a bay boat and a center console, the Pathfinder 2700 Open is perfect for both freshwater and saltwater fishing, whether in the shallows or deeper waters. Bay boats are designed for fishing in nearshore areas and don’t quite have the ability to get far offshore because of their shallow deadrise. Center console boats are best used for sport fishing in deeper waters because they have the power and design to operate at higher speeds. With a draft of 17 inches and a deadrise of 18 degrees, this crossover allows you to handle both types of fishing and cruising. This boat is also a great source for family-friendly fun. The onboard cooler and JL Audio speakers make for a fun, easy and convenient day trip.

Last Words

The Pathfinder manufacturing crew did an amazing job on this crossover! The spectacular standard features, including the hydraulic jackplate with blinker switch, recessed hardware for snag-free fishing and console windshield and grabrail, make for a smooth, comfortable, and flawless recreational experience.
