Pathfinder 2300 HPS is a Shallow-Water Rocket
October 27, 2010
The “HPS” in Pathfinder’s new 2300 bay boat stands for High Performance Step, referring to the stepped hull that, along with the standard jackplate and “bustle” transom, offers improved high-speed performance. The 2300 HPS was specifically designed around Yamaha’s new 250 VMAX SHO 4-stroke outboard, which is lighter and faster than its previous VMAX engines and weighs equal to or less than competing 2-strokes.
The 2300 HPS is packed with standard fishing features, including increased cockpit and deck space and wide walkaround gunwales. There is locking rod storage, a specially designed 35-gallon recirculating live well that drains ammonia away from baits, a pre-wired trolling motor system, flush-mount cleats and a custom leaning post with rocket launcher and backrest. The all-composite boat also features full closed-cell floatation, hydraulic steering and standard saltwater washdown. Plenty of options are available as well, including a wide choice of hull colors.
