Cape Bay 23

The family owned and operated Cape Horn boat company is at it again. For over 23-years this Florida based manufacturer has been constructing high quality, high value boats for tournament anglers, law enforcement agencies and everyone in between. Entering the hybrid bay boat/offshore market in full stride, the ingenious team at Cape Horn has hit the nail on the head with their newest ride—the Cape Bay 23. Featuring Divinicell core construction and a completely wood-free design, this sweet craft will withstand years of rigorous use under the most demanding conditions. If you’re an angler who enjoys plying both fertile inshore and offshore waters, this tricked out hybrid is a perfect fit. With an all purpose 15-degree deadrise moderate V hull featuring unsinkable construction, you can rest assure the Cape Bay will keep you dry, comfortable and safe under less than ideal conditions. For shallow water aficionados the lack of forward strakes under the bow provides a new level of stealth when traversing shallow flats. Gone are the days of noisy hull slap announcing your arrival to nearby game fish. With meticulous planning, attention to detail and construction techniques utilizing only the finest materials, Cape Horn’s latest release is equally capable of running the shallows or venturing over the horizon. Don’t take our word for it. Sea trial one today! Cape Horn Boats, 850.626.2211,
