194 Bay

The 194 Bay is a hard-charging boat that gets out of the hole quick with a Yamaha 115 HP or 150 HP outboard. Its creature comforts includes two rear fold-down jump seats and an aft swim platform with an extending ladder. For the pro inshore angler, there is a 27-gallon aft livewell and a 13-gallon livewell/baitwell under the console seat. Six vertical rod holders flank the helm and an ample 93” layout holds latched storage compartments for gear, and an insulated fish box, below deck.

Whatever the task, the 194 Bay guarantees a great day on the water for everyone.
