24' Triton Bay Boat
The 24ft Triton 240 LTS Pro offers the best quality, design and layout for my customers to enjoy a first class experience on the water. Powered by a Yamaha 250hp 4-stroke engine, the boat runs quietly and can reach 50mph to get you there fast. This rig is the perfect shallow water fishing machine while still maintaining the ability to handle the Chesapeake Bay chop better than any boat in its class. The spacious, stable and clutter free layout with raised bow and stern casting decks is fantastic for fly and light tackle fishing. No corners were cut when outfitting this 240 LTS for everything needed to make it the best guide boat on the water. There are three massive livewells totaling 110 gallons for carrying hoards of live baitfish to the fishing grounds. Horizontal gunnel rod storage will accept 8 fly rods. Huge compartments provide plenty of room to store any gear that you bring as well as all safety equipment that I provide. The upgraded leaning post includes a tackle locker for keeping all the lures, flies and fishing equipment that I have to offer. A removable bow leaning post allows for extra support and safety while fishing rough water. The center console has front seating and houses high-end electronics including an 10" screen Lowrance GPS/sounder, I-com VHF, JBL CD player and speakers. A 101# thrust MinnKota bow mount trolling motor with wireless i-Pilot remote allows for silent boat positioning and the 8' Power-Pole with wireless remote makes for fast and quiet anchoring. The 6" TH Atlas jack plate and PowerTech 4-blade prop let me raise the engine for shallow water running. Hydraulic trim tabs help fine tune the ride. Other features include removable pedestal fishing seats, pull up cleats, cast net locker, onboard battery charger, swim ladder and much more. You'll love spending time on this new ride!
