We Say: Long relegated to bays and estuaries, the bay boat style is undergoing a sea change. In a crossover market, builders are striving for the ideal blend between fishing machine and family runabout. Sea Born's FX25 is the latest in this new hybrid category, and its balance is a good one. Sporting a modest bow flare, single-step hull design and an integrated engine bracket, the FX25 is capable of deepwater duty as well as running shallower flats. Different packages let the owner customize for select fishing scenarios with features like the 66-gallon release well, molded cast-net well, trolling motor and 8-foot Power-Pole anchor with remote.
