Pathfinder 2500 Hybrid Review

We’re happy to share a detailed walkthrough of a customized 2018 Pathfinder 2500 Hybrid Bay Boat. This 2018 model 2500 Hybrid offers shallow draft for stalking the flats, but with a unique stepped hull and high gunnels, is a great vessel for targeting nearshore and offshore species in a variety of water conditions.

Powered with a Yamaha 300hp outboard, the boat has a top end of around 57mph at 5700rpm. At cruise at 4000rpm, the boat cruises at 35mph burning about 2.8-3.0mpg depending on load and fuel on board.

For electronics, we’ve gone with the Raymarine Axiom Pro 12 Chartplotter & Sonar featuring side vision, down vision, 3D mapping, and CHIRP high-frequency sonar via twin through hull transducers.

Remote auto deploy is available on the Minn Kota Ulterra trolling motor for hands-free deployment and operation, perfect for allowing anglers to fish the forward deck while you run the trolling motor from the rear.
