Sailfish 2100 Bay
Breaking It Down
Sailfish builds its bay boats a little deeper than most do. So a model like the 2100 Bay, with an 18-degree deadrise, has a relatively sharp entry to cleave chop when the winds pick up or should you venture offshore — yet it drafts only 13.5 inches. We found the ride to be softer than most boats in its class, which is why we could hang with the big boys. The cockpit is deep because the aggressive hull transitions into high freeboard, meaning you step a little higher onto the casting decks and have a better angle for sight fishing. Storage compartments in bow and stern are more voluminous as well.
High freeboard leads to a dry ride in sloppy conditions and also blocks splash from wayward wakes.
Rod holders are molded into the sides of the console instead of screwed on as separate pieces.
Grouping the gauges to the right side of the instrument panel leaves plenty of space for a wired-in chart plotter.
A red LED in the livewell at the transom is a nice feature for night fishing.
Deep deadrise and high gunwales give fair-day offshore capabilities.
The aggressive deadrise makes it ever more critical to balance the load properly and for drivers to supply input at the wheel.
Higher gunwales and deeper cockpit make it a little more challenging to net and boat bigger fish.
