Pathfinder literally defined the term bay boat. Designed by the fabled design team from Maverick Boat Group, the Pathfinder bay boat became the most versatile inshore fishing boat ever conceived. For the first time anglers could take fishing partners, gear and a ton of bait a long way in a short time and arrive at the fishing destination with a truly high technology fishing tool.
The Pathfinder name is synonymous with quality, experience and value. No one in the marine industry knows more about the design, performance and construction of shallow-water and light-tackle fishing boats.
Buying a boat is a big decision. And unlike automobile manufacturers, many brands of boats are here today and gone tomorrow. That’s why it is so important to make your investment in a boat that’s made by a company that will be here for the life of your vessel.Visit Website
