Excel Boat / Bay Pro 230
Bay Pro 230
Excel has bragging rights to this smooth running and fast Bay Pro 230. This boat is an elite bay boat platform with features and options professional multi-species fisherman have been asking for. The Bay Pro 230 is big, 23' X 102" (8.5') to be exact, and the widest beam you can legally tow on the highway.
Fit and finish is our specialty, and the Bay Pro 230 is so well built that many think it is fiberglass when they look down the sides of the hull.
To top it off, we built this hull from 0.160 aluminum, unheard of for bay boats that normally have 0.125 hulls. To move this large boat, we built it on a 14 degree pad hull that lifts the boat, provides a dry ride and allows the boat to reach higher than normal speeds for a 23 foot boat varying from 200 to 250 HP.

Elite Wide Body Console
Our all new console has everything and it is where it should be. The dash will accommodate up to a 12" fish finder/nav unit. The dash has room for a 3" bluetooth radio, has extra accessory switches, and the new compact gauge set is arranged perfectly. You will love our new recessed toe kick that makes it easier to sit behind and move around the console, and the built-in live well with seat cushion and built-in tackle center. This console has room under the dash for up to three large 12V group 27 deep cycle trolling motor batteries.
Water Resistant Rod/Storage Boxes
The two front lockable boxes hold up to 12 fishing rods, 6 in each. The boxes are designed with a recessed water lip under the cover that channels water away from the box and on to the floor where it drains into the bilge area. This allows you to put rods and other items in the box where they will be guarded from rain and wave splash.
Although these boxes are water resistant, water from high pressure or wash-down pumps can work its way up under the lid and into the box, so please be careful when cleaning
Rear Jump Seats/Storage Boxes
The fold-down twin jump seats convert the flat rear deck into the best two seats in the boat. If you get tired of driving, simply commandeer one of these comfortable seats and relax. Why not, you are the captain. The jumps seat also open to a large storage box below.
Plus, check out the cooler, the lean post with fold down step, vertical rod holders on the back rest and hold-on handle in front of the jump seat. Although, you probably won't need them since this is the most comfortable ride in the boat.
Wide Body Front Deck
The new wide body front deck has a troll motor mount, dry storage box, motor/nav/trim control switches and two built-in tackle storage boxes, port and starboard. Plus, the over-sized front deck has plenty of room to work your jigs from any angle on the boat.
