24′ Offshore

Seaway’s 24 Offshore is a strong but compact coastal fishing boat that combines piscatorial prowess with family-friendly features like an enclosed head, a forward V-berth with filler cushion for children’s’ naps, and multiple weather protection options. This 24’ X 8’6” hull provides plenty of people-space, while her proud bow and easily-driven, hard-chine bottom allow her to run easily with an economical 150-hp outboard. Whether the engine is hung on a transom cutout or an extended Armstrong transom bracket, look for efficient cruising speeds of 15-25 mph, a top speed in the low 30s, and an easy motion on the drift or at anchor.

The hardtop mounts on stainless steel rails that provide comfortable hand-holds and mounting points for rod holders. Connected to the sturdy windshield frame with short rails, it offers solid surfaces for installing antennas and a radar dome. The forward edge does not connect to the windshield directly, leaving a gap for ventilation, but a canvas insert is available to seal it, along with a set of side and rear curtains for snotty weather. Under the top, the ladderback helm seat mounts on a storage box that can be covered with a cushion for a rear-facing seat. Opposite the helm to port is an L-shaped lounge with a cutting board and lockable storage for tackle.

In the cockpit, under-gunwale racks offer horizontal storage for rods, and the gunwale surfaces can be fitted with angled vertical rod holders. For day cruising, a full-width transom seat is available, but it is removable for serious fishing trips. If equipped with an Armstrong bracket, the transom can hold a circulating livewell. Other valuable options for serious voyages include a bow thruster for close-in maneuverability, a shorepower system with battery charger, an anchor windlass, a head with macerator in the holding tank, electric windshield wipers, and a 12-volt refrigerator.

One important virtue of the 24 Offshore is trailerability. Its 8’6” beam fits within the regulations for all states, without necessitating wide-load permits. Thus if there’s a hot bite a hundred miles up or down the coast, or a tidal river/sound system that begs for exploring, just hitch up, pull her out, and go. She’s always ready for your next adventure.
