Caymas Boats CX 20
By Tom Richardson on December 9, 2019
Caymas Boats—the new fishing boat brand led by marine industry pioneer Earl Bentz—has announced the second in its CX series of tournament bass boats: the CX 20.
The boat measures 20’ 4”, making it a foot shorter than the company’s flagship CX 21 tournament model, yet it shares the same 96-inch beam. That translates into lots of deck and storage space Coupled with a fuel-efficient four-stroke outboard, the CX 20’s efficient hull design and 50-gallon fuel capacity mean extended cruising range and fewer time-consuming fill-ups for anglers competing in multi-day tournaments on large bodies of water.
Another noteworthy feature is the Hi-Speed Livewell Pickup System, which pushes water into the CX 20’s independent wells once the boat is on plane.
Recognizing that the bass boat industry is trending toward heavier four-stroke engines, twin anchor poles, four batteries, onboard charger and larger fuel tanks, Caymas moved the console on the CX 20 forward slightly while beefing up the transom for maximum strength and structural integrity.
The padded front deck boasts ample dry storage compartments for rods, tackle boxes and gear, while the rear deck contains the live wells, two extra-deep storage boxes and a utility hatch allowing easy access to batteries and pumps.
Standard equipment on the CX 20 includes a 36-volt Minn Kota Ultrex trolling motor with Spot-Lock, 4-bank onboard battery charger, capability to flush-mount large electronic units at both console and bow, and a premium tandem axle drive-on trailer with brakes, maintenance-free hubs and a swing tongue for compact garage storage.
