Some folks may not have heard of Mag Bay Yachts before, but lots of people who pay attention to boats with a bend toward angling know about Cabo Yachts — a boatbuilder that has been churning out top-notch sportfishing yachts for quite some time.

The founders of Cabo have now turned their attention to producing an offshore center console with gorgeous lines and thrilling performance. The result is the Mag Bay 33.

Designed with an eye toward fishing and cruising, the Mag Bay 33 has all the elements of a real head-turner: Generous tumblehome, substantial Carolina-style bow flare and a gorgeous rising sheerline that ties it all together. Ample angling and comfort features are baked into the Mag Bay 33. The bow has an expansive U-shaped lounging area, and a large, two-person lounge sits ahead of the center console. Supple vinyl bolstering surrounds the cockpit from bow to stern, and a pair of sturdy but comfortable helm seats with flip-up bolsters sit behind the helm. Anglers will appreciate the copious rod stowage, a rigging station with a cooler behind the helm seats, fish and storage lockers and a generous transom-mounted livewell.

The Mag Bay 33 has a pair of 300-hp Yamaha F300 four-stroke outboards racked to the stern, with twin Yamaha F350s available as an option. As you might have guessed, that means things go by in a hurry when the throttles are buried. Top-end speeds at wide-open throttle is around 52-57 mph, depending on the engine option. If you have places to go, there’s certainly enough fuel on-board to simply keep the hammer down — 338 gallons worth; however, 30 mph will get you there with a much more efficient fashion, burning around 20 gph. That ups the Mag Bay 33’s range to an approximate 500 miles.  

Brent Reed with Reed Yacht Sales says: “We are very excited to introduce Mag Bay Yachts to the Great Lakes. Mag Bay Yachts is owned by the founders of Cabo Yachts and offers the same high quality product and dedication to excellence of their former company. She is extremely well built and offers great styling with exceptional offshore capabilities. Our first stock boat is now here in the Great Lakes.”
