23 Bay Overview

Versatility best describes the 23 Bay Bolt. Our Bay Bolt weighs in at 2600 lbs without the motor.  This weight combined with the unique hull design allows for the ability to cross Biscayne Bay, Charlotte Harbor or Tampa Bay like a 25 Center Console.  Additionally the wide beam provides tremendous buoyancy and stability in shallow water.  

The specs are correct. It floats in 10 inches of water, and it will not list with 3 anglers on one side of the bow or stern. With a top speed of 57 mph with a 300 hp four stroke. Combined with 2 live wells standard and room for a third this Bay Bolt has a cult-like following from Louisiana to Key West. See the video of her construction under Why Hydra Sports for more info.
