UNRIVALED IN QUALITY. PERFORMANCE. FISHABILITY.
Inshore or offshore the new, NauticStar 265 XTS is a beast of a bay boat and the largest in the Extreme Tournament Series family of boats. It is the culmination of years of innovation and advanced engineering, with a collection of all the latest bells and whistles. It evolved from customer feedback for the ultimate fishing vessel. With its large forward and aft decks, ample rod storage, 43 gallon bow fish box, 3 livewell/baitwells, 35 Qt YETI cooler, and plenty of tackle storage, the 265 is an amazing fishing platform. Not only is it ergonomically correct and down right comfortable, the newly designed leaning post features Llebroc seating with flip-up bolsters and armrests; a 21 gallon baitwell with transparent lid; lighted push button switch panel; and conveniently located freshwater washdown.
Saltwater or freshwater, Red Fish or Snapper, it doesn’t matter–the NauticBay 265XTS will get you to the fish quick featuring the STAR Performance System.
