Many boaters demand more than superior fishability. Creature comforts for the family often clinch the deal, but never at the expense of a tournament-winning fishing platform. My test shows Pathfinder delivers on that fishability and comfort combo in the 2400 TRS.
Powered by the Yamaha SHO 250 and loaded to fish with a full tank of fuel, a Power-Pole, a trolling motor, three batteries and two anglers, the test boat topped out at 50 mph with a four-blade, 26-inch-pitch Turbo prop. A three-blade Saltwater Series could’ve added 3 mph, but as tested it skimmed over the 18-inch flats without raking muck and safely shot the hole in three feet, exhibiting the four-blade’s mettle. I wrote crisp notes at full speed in the light chop, proving the stability of the 15-degree-deadrise hull. We plowed up steep rollers and then easily sliced through them. While drifting over a calm backwater, casting to trout and reds, I changed vantage points from stern to bow and back again, enjoying the stability of the 8-foot-6-inch beam.
Three livewells were fitted with high-volume pumps and optional sea strainers (standard on the tournament series). Quick-change cartridges and Deutsch connectors make service simple should the livewells fail in a tournament when captains fill them black with live bait.
