You’ve heard the saying, “If the shoe fits, wear it” and that translates to boats too. A local area and its fishing characteristics dictates the abilities a boat must have in order for it to perform and hold up to the high standards of discerning anglers. The Parker 2320 Sport Cabin has found a home along the West Coast and excels as a tool to keep anglers safe and comfortable while catching fish in a variety of situations.
The perfect balance between a boat size and function. With a much bigger feel than many other 23-foot boats, the Parker 2320 offers full fishability in a package that is still manageable for the bank account, tow vehicle or slip and storage rental.

Billy Keleman had this to say recently, “Earlier last year, I was looking to re-power my 2007 Parker 2320 since it had a 225HP and lots of hours. I loved the boat so much and I didn’t want to buy another boat.
However, during discussions with Kevin Kelly at West Coast Marine, he urged me to look into a new 2018 Parker and make a comparison. At first, I was a bit hesitant, but after looking over the numbers, new features, and especially that new 300 HP Yamaha, the price wasn’t that much different. Parker boats retain their value so well and I ended up selling my 2007 in just one day. I immediately placed a deposit for a brand new Parker 2320. Kevin and his team were a tremendous help in the purchasing process. We poured over the details and picked out options to make the boat perfect for charter fishing and family adventure. As much as I wanted bump up to the 2520 model, the 2320 fit my applications better and I couldn’t be any happier with my decision.”
Keleman continued, “The Parker 2320 is designed with the most deck space for its size, as well as the cozy cabin so that I can take my growing family on trips. The boat just covered everything I needed. I’m extremely happy with my boat and couldn’t see myself in another one anytime soon. I’ve been fortunate to catch many giant bluefin tuna as of late in addition to many family cruises. The Parker 2320 does exactly what I need it to do and I’m very grateful to have gone through the new boat buying process with Kevin Kelly of West Coast Marine.”
If you’re looking for a new rig, you should certainly consider checking out the Parker Boat in any size and Kevin Kelly’s West Coast Marine Service is a great place to start.
