AUGUST 19, 2019, SEMINOLE, OK – Blue Wave
Boats launched 2600 Pure Bay during the Parks Manufacturing Dealer Meeting this
August to current dealers and dealer prospects.
Wave Boats builds bay boats ranging from 20’ to 28’. “Our 2400 Pure Bay owners were looking for a
boat to move up to, but they weren’t quite ready for the 28 yet,” states Steven
Parks, President Blue Wave Boats. 2600
fits the sweet spot between 2400 Pure Bay and 2800 Pure Hybrid.
2600 Pure Bay features a double-stepped
hull that is reinforced with Kevlar®. Sporting
an impressive 26’ 2” LOA this boat offers up serious space for fishing that
converts to a stable and comfortable family cruiser thanks to third row seating
that runs the width of the impressive 9’1” beam.
Blue Wave Boat’s unique build methodology
consists of four stringers, whereas the rest of the industry relies on just
two, plus a gridwork of bulkheads that fuse together when the hull and deck are
laminated. This process of construction
delivers a strength you can feel the moment you step aboard and lightens up the
build for impressive speed and fuel economy.
2600 Pure Bay is rated for 450 HP in a
single or twin-engine configuration.
Blue Wave has a new boat, an offshore hybrid. Capable of handling blue water yet still shallow drafting for those days when you are ready to give the fish a break. The boat was recently reviewed by Angler’s Journal… READ MORE

Finally, a single boat that really can do it all. Meet 2800 Pure Hybrid, the world’s largest
bay boat, who is just as comfortable
fishing the shallows as fishing blue water.
This is the evolution of a new species of boat from the Parks family,
who’ve been leading the charge in innovation since 1992.
The unique hull design of 2800 Pure Hybrid delivers a soft
and comfortable ride with enough Carolina flare to stay dry in most conditions. The double-stepped hull gets on top of the
waves immediately for peak fuel economy and nimble performance.
The boat’s impressive size assures space for everything you
need for a day of fishing or fun in the sun.
Fishing is at the forefront of this boats purpose-built
design. Two standard pressurized
livewells holding 45 gallons of live bait, 35 gallons aft and a ten-gallon
pitch well forward, are standard. An
additional seventy-five gallons of livewell is an option. Spacious platforms with insulated fish boxes
and lockable rod storage all drain overboard and keep the deck dry. The console is large enough for twin 12”
screens at the helm and a spacious step-down compartment has ample room for a
porta potti and rigging access. A
comfortable jump seat and optional seat cushions for the bow turn this fishing
machine into a sandbar champ. And to top
it off… you can easily fill ‘er up thanks to fuel fills port and starboard.
The transom is Kevlar reinforced to accommodate up to 557hp
in a single or twin set-up. Truly, no
species is safe.
