2024 Sportsman Masters 247 Bay Boat

Year 2024
Length 24'4 ft

The design team had lofty goals when tasked with reimagining the top-selling Masters 247. The redesign focused on opening up more cockpit space behind the leaning post, redesigning the console to accommodate d-tubing, and incorporating a tempered glass windshield, along with other minor improvements. The results are a stunning bay boat that performs as well as it looks. This top-selling 24' bay boat is miles ahead of its time and ready for serious fishing. The deck features dual aquarium livewells, a large bow casting deck with lockable rod storage, plenty of comfortable seating for up to 10 people, best-in-class bilge access, and much more. All of this is paired with a very capable hull designed for shallow water and a smooth ride. The Masters 247 now features the revolutionary Seakeeper Ride System in a first-of-its-kind built-in pocket design. This system uses actuators and stabilization technology to improve the ride quality in any condition, providing a smoother and more comfortable ride for all onboard. The Seakeeper Ride system is seamlessly integrated into the boat's transom design, making it virtually invisible. With this cutting-edge feature, the Masters 247 sets a new standard for bay boats and offers a level of comfort and stability that was previously unheard of in its class.
