Quicklook: Tidewater 2500 CB

by Ted Lund

 

Stepped-hull bay boats are all the rage with a number of today’s marine manufacturers, but South Carolina-based manufacturer Tidewater Boats really took their time before jumping into the mix with what is a solid choice for recreational anglers and professional fishing guides.

Tidewater turned to one of the best in the business: Brian Forehand, who holds the world record monohull speed record of 180.

Taping out at 25 feet, 2 inches, the 2500 features a solid nine-foot beam. The 2500 Carolina Bay is a large, stepped-bottom hull bay boat that positions itself with some of the other high-end bay boat manufacturers without the expense.

 

Tidewater’s 2500 Carolina Bay is a full-featured boat with standard offerings, including electronic tilt power steering, hydraulic jack plate, and trim tabs. Fishermen will appreciate the twin 30-gallon live wells, Tidewater’s built-in Icehouse cooler and lockable, under gunwale rod storage. Ample storage is provided in the bow, as well as a below-deck anchor locker and integrated below deck bucket storage.

As with all members of the Tidewater Boat family, the only limit to options is your imagination. The company offers a wide variety of t-tops, leaning posts, , and seating options. And, like every other tidewater, the 2500 Carolina Bay also features all-composite, no wood construction with fiberglass stringers and a hand-laid fiberglass hull. Each boat is rigged to AYBC standards and backed by a 10-year transferable hull warranty.
