Nautic Star boats are known for their solid three-piece molded hull/stringer grid/deck construction, which delivers a solid feel even in their smaller models like the 195 Bay. Born and bred in Mississippi, the heart of bay boat country, this builder knows how to deliver on fishing design and features.
Critical Fishing Features
- Aft 27-gallon live well
- Forward 13-gallon live well
- Insulated, integrated 20-gallon fish box
- Bow rod boxes
- Six vertical console rod holders
- Leaning post w/94-quart cooler
- Eight-gauge trolling motor wiring harness
- Raised fore and aft casting decks
- The variable-degree deadrise with a 50-degree V at the entry assures you can split open some serious waves, but it tapers down to 13-degrees at the transom to maximize stability and minimize draft (which is 11”).
- Performance is better than average for a boat of this size, and rigged with a Yamaha F115 outboard cruising speed is over 30 mph while maintaining 5.9 mpg. The top-end is in the mid-40s, which is plenty fast in a 19-footer.
- Few boats in this class offer not one but two standard live wells, giving you an eye-opening total of 40 gallons of live bait holding capacity.
The Nautic Star 195 Bay proves that going with a small boat doesn’t have to mean making sacrifices when it comes to design and equipping. In fact, we’ll bet you look at plenty of over-20-foot bay boats that can’t offer fish ability this good.
