Pro-Line Boats, part of the Baja Marine Group, will relaunch the 24 Bay with a new deck and console at the Nov. 5-9 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

“The 24 Bay was a boat I really liked, even though we discontinued building bay boats at Pro-Line in 2012-2013,” Baja Marine CEO Johnny Walker said in a statement. “I consider the 2016 edition of the 24 Bay a new model because it has a redesigned deck and console, along with a lot of standard fishing features — the base-priced boat has everything you need to get out on the water and start catching fish.”

Standard features include a bait well, rod holders, a leaning post and casting-net storage in the bow so boaters won’t drip water after catching fresh bait. A mechanical jackplate allows boaters to raise the motor for a draft of 10 inches.

Optional features available for the 24 Bay include a T-top, a hydraulic jackplate and an additional bait well.

“The boat runs 40 mph with a 150-horsepower engine,” Walker said. “You can go up to a 250-horsepower engine, and that’s going to get you in the 60-mph range. This is the perfect boat for the Florida Keys or rivers and inland waterways.”

All single-engine outboard options for the Pro-Line 24 Bay are equipped with 25-inch shafts. The boat can be equipped with a Mercury Verado FourStroke 200-hp or 250-hp engine (for a 47- to 60-mph top speed), a Suzuki four-stroke 150 (for a 40-mph top speed) or a Suzuki 200 or 250. Other engine options also are available.

The 24 Bay is one of seven Pro-Line models that will be at the boat show’s Fort Lauderdale Convention Center location. Other models on display at the show will include the 29 Grand Sport, 26 Super Sport, 26 Express, 23 Sport, 24 Bay and 20 Sport.
