To fully take advantage of all the angling opportunities that exist between the shallow flats and the ocean’s deepest reaches it requires an array of tackle and a boat designed to be versatile enough to effectively fish the whole water column. Meet the new 2700 Open, combining the forward deck space of a bay boat with the open cockpit of a center console.
With nearly 70 gallons of standard livewell space, 3 insulated fishboxes totaling over 120 gallons, and dedicated rod racks for 18 rods ranging from fly rods to bottom and trolling gear, this boat allows you to carry everything you need to successfully target surface swimmers to bottom dwellers and everything in between. Plus, there’s enough dry storage to bring multiple cast nets and loads of tackle bags, and the console can even be optioned with a head. Finally, with a max horsepower rating of 450, standard jackplate, and a double-stepped, VARIS constructed hull, the next spot is never too far away.
