NauticStar Hybrid boats can go from fishing to pleasure boat in a snap
If you have a love for being on the water, chances are you have specific activities you like to do. But we’ll bet you also can’t narrow it down to just one thing. Inshore fishing is definitely on the list, but you also love getting family and friends onboard to explore, anchor out, or splash around on a hot day.
When you start thinking about your on-water lifestyle in those terms, you realize the need for versatility in a boat. You want a boat that’s as capable of a relaxed and comfortable day of cruising as it is going through the paces of a hardcore day of hauling in fish. NauticStar’s Hybrid boat lineup, with models ranging from 19 to 25 feet, are equally up to the challenges of fun and entertainment as they are up to the tasks of serious fishing and multiple conditions.
The Hybrid boats are a cross between a bay boat and a deck boat, and they feature an ergonomic center console design perfect for all your on-water to-do’s. Convertible features allow you to turn plush seating areas into sure-footed stable casting platforms both fore and aft when the hunt is on. Tournament-ready fishability features like livewells, fish boxes, and dedicated rod and cast net storage keep you on top of your game. An optional washdown system helps you easily get rid of any grime to keep things neat and tidy.
For fun with family and friends, the optional sport package incorporates a swim platform, Bimini top, and Infinity stereo. A standard bow boarding ladder makes for easy on-off when you’re beaching, too. Wraparound seating with optional flip-out backrests put the comfort in bow riding when you’re heading to your next destination. But they fold flush with the gunnel so they don’t get in the way of getting after the fish. Abundant stainless-steel drink holders and an insulated bow cooler with a dedicated spot mean you can keep the crew fueled and hydrated for whatever the day has in store.
The draft on a NauticStar Hybrid boat is perfect for scouring those skinnier waters inshore or beaching on a sand bar for the day. But rest-assured, you’ll ride safe and dry even in choppier nearshore waters or if you’re planning to cove-hop on a larger lake on a breezy day.
Wherever you’re going, you’ll reap the benefits of reliable Yamaha power to get you there. NauticStar Hybrid boats are paired with Yamaha four stroke outboards ranging from 90 to 350 horsepower. Known for their speed and light-weight, fuel-efficient design, these engines are industry stars no matter your activity of choice. And NauticStar wouldn’t pair a boat with anything less.
What you do on the water changes with the day and sometimes within day, depending on who you have onboard. With a NauticStar Hybrid boat, you don’t have to choose just one thing. You can fish at sunrise, build a sandcastle with the kids on the beach at noon, and cruise to a waterfront restaurant with friends in the evening. No matter what you’re doing, you can feel confident you’ve got a boat that is more than up to the task.
