Pathfinder Boats Announces Second New Model for 2023 With New 2400 Open
FORT PIERCE, FL, August 16, 2022 – Pathfinder Boats, built by Maverick Boat Group, Inc. (MBG), has added another new offering to its 2023 model year lineup with the unveiling of the 2400 Open. The 2400 Open follows the recent introduction of the new 2400 TRS. Both models share the same high-performance, single-stepped hull.
The new 2400 Open is a fishing- focused, smaller sibling of Pathfinder’s successful 2700 Open. The “Open” describes the stern area that foregoes the traditional aft casting deck commonly found in bay boats and instead carries the cockpit fully to the transom. This gives a center console feel to the stern fishing area and allows the angler to fish out of the back of the boat while securely staying in the deeper cockpit. The bow area maintains a more typical forward casting deck for inshore and nearshore sight-fishing opportunities afforded by the boat’s 15-inch draft. The intent of this hybrid layout is to provide anglers a versatile platform for effectively targeting a wide variety of fish in different environments and throughout the water column.
Vacuum-infused using MBG’s VARIS (Vacuum Assisted Resin Infusion System), the 2400 Open combines technologically advanced materials with a single-stepped hull and 6-inch jackplate for fast, fuel-efficient open water performance, allowing anglers to cover lots of water quickly. A 9- foot beam provides a spacious fishing area that incorporates a 40-gallon helm seat livewell, a 25-gallon aft pitchwell for quick access to baits, three insulated fishboxes that can be macerated, and holders for 20 rods, including under-gunwale storage with tip protection tubes for two fly rods. The console can take up to 16-inch electronics and can be optioned with a pumpout head. Helm seat shade comes in the form of either a hardtop or a full second station with controls. Additional options include dual power poles, gelcoat color-matched components, an extended shaft GPS trolling motor, and faux teak decking.
“One of the most rewarding aspects of fishing is trying new water, learning new techniques, targeting different species and expanding your fishing knowledge. The ability to become a more versatile angler is most often limited by your boat. The 2400 Open breaks down that barrier and gives you inshore, nearshore and offshore access from top to bottom.” commented Charlie Johnson, Director of Sales and Marketing.
