What are you waiting for? The 2300 Carolina Bay is the ultimate when it comes to fishing and fun. This is one very friendly day boat, capable of flipping between fishing and cruising with ease. With a relatively shallow draft of approximately 35 centimetres, the 2300 is perfect for our rivers and estuaries as well as freshwater lakes.

The hull is a stepped design offering fuel efficient cruising whether you are heading to the fishing grounds, or simply sight-seeing in the bay. The 2300 Carolina Bay uses Tidewater’s wood free composite construction with a grid stringer design that ensures a solid feeling ride.

The huge fore and aft casting platforms offer plenty of space to cast lures or fly. If you need to get away and find your own space, go to the casting platform at the rear with fold down seating.

Whilst the standard features are great there is an extensive range of options for this boat such as a bimini or T-Top, something we recommend to ward off that harsh Aussie sun. You can also choose your own helm set up with a choice of several leaning post configurations.

This is an impressive riding bay boat that can handle big water and keep you dry courtesy of the visually appealing Carolina flare which directs spray away from the boat

About Tidewater Boats

In 2006 Tidewater Boats began with a dream. With decades of marine craftsmanship and knowledge, they set out to create the best boat value for the money. Over a decade later and Tidewater has developed into one of the fastest growing, most popular saltwater boats in the industry.

Born in the Midlands of South Carolina where Marine Craftsmanship is a staple of the economy, Tidewater has historically utilized the best materials and the best skilled labour to produce a boat worthy of proud ownership.

One of the many advantages of owning a Tidewater is performance. Not only do they consider speed and economy on all their boats but also how comfortable, stable and dry they are. And they know that conditions can vary from day to day. The Carolina Flare diverts water away from the bow. Chines direct water down and out from the boat while several spray relief points eliminate water coming into the cockpit.

To achieve this, Tidewater boats are wider from chine to chine eliminating large bow rises. The chines are also reverse, creating downward pressure on the water and delivering a cushioned ride. Tidewater call it the dry Chine Ride or DCR.

The hull construction is an exclusive Corrugated Grid Stringer Vertebra design, or CGSV which is optimised for each different sized boat in the range. The hulls are also foam filled which reduces water noise and ensures a quiet ride.

There are a host of models to choose from and dedicated fishermen looking for the ultimate fishing boat will appreciate the choice, allowing you to do everything from chasing inshore fish to offshore trophies.
