She finally arrived! -- my brand new 2018 Parker 2320 aka "A-Salt Weapon"...Truly a dream come true! Feeling so humble & grateful to be in a position for this opportunity to all come together.

I've been all over these Parker build forums reading your guys questions and feedback. Thank you all for your input, as it's helped me make a lot of setup decisions for my build.

I've been looking at 2320's for a few years now and have seen them evolve and become more & more popular. For my personal style of fishing, this platform fits my needs perfectly. Briefly explored the used market, and realized quickly I wanted to go the new boat route.

Got to talking with Kevin Kelly after meeting him at the Fred Hall show down here in San Diego, and the stars simply aligned. First off...HUGE thank you to Kevin Kelly at West Coast Marine for making this purchase an incredible experience. Kevin elevates and redefines the meaning of customer service. If you’re thinking about buying a new or used Parker, definitely give Kevin a call -- you won't regret it.

Next up, the new sled is off to Tony Greyshock at Fishing Boats Unlimited & Dave Lawson at Seaside Marine Electronics for rigging to begin. She's getting a full Simrad electronics package installed that includes (3) NSS9 Evo3 units (2 units in the dash, 1 unit on the back deck), dual thru-hull ducers (B175HW & B175L), Simrad S5100 sonar module, Simrad AP44 auto pilot & WR10 remote control, Simrad 4G radar, Simrad RS35 VHF radio & HS35 wireless VHF handset, custom folding tower with wrap around seating, 65 gallon bait tank, SeaBlazeX underwater LED lighting, Rigid Industries LED deck & forward lighting, Lifeline AGM Batteries, and a whole lot more!

I’ll post more photos & updates on the build as it starts to come together in the next couple weeks...

Nice, good choice on the grey color. I got a same color coming in 3 weeks.

Make sure you give her 2 coats of Meguiar’s marine wax before taking her out. Give some thought on external GPS and another radio in the pilot house. I like one radio on Chanel 16 and use the other one to talk to your buddies and two radios for safety is a good thing.

Yes I agree that Kevin's the best..Ordered mine without bow pulpit so I can keep my DP slip..She will live on my Air Dock ( had my 2120 0n the lift for the past 3 years)
Looks like the new 2320's are a big hit...I think we will really like the transom door..

Update 7/10/18:
Took the new Parker 2320 out this passed weekend for sea trail and initial 10 hour break-in. Launched in Newport Harbor both Saturday & Sunday. Everything ran spectacular...the new 300hp Yamaha has tons of power and is incredibly quiet! There's still a couple minor things left to finish before taking delivery later this week (bait tank to be sealed & install tank rod holders, finish install on Simrad NSS9 Evo3 deck screen and B175L thru-hull ducer, add built in on board trickle charger). Once finished, I'll post an update including all the equipment installed on this build, and contacts for installers used with personal feedback and reviews.
