The 23 Patriot is a rugged offshore capable boat that delivers impressive performance and provides a safe, comfortable ride. Children will enjoy the ability to nap and play inside the big center cabin that has 71" of berth space and 59" of headroom, adventurous boaters will take comfort knowing that they have a safe place to overnight should the need unexpectedly arise and everyone benefits from the opportunity to include a portable toilet or full marine head in the step down area beneath the cushions of the cuddy.
The 23 Patriot has all the walk-around conveniences of a center console yet the center cabin provides maximum wind and weather protection without confinement. The sleek rooftop always provides protection from the sun and rain and optional canvas side and rear curtains can quickly be installed to provide complete weather protection on those inclement days when you still want to reach the fishing grounds. Already excellent visibility from the helm is improved with the installation of optional commercial grade windshield wipers; properly outfitted the Patriot is a solid, safe year-round boat.
Even the most seasoned boaters will be impressed with the performance of the 23 Patriot's hull design. The 8'6" beam, wide 6"chines and moderate 14 degree aft deadrise provide incredible stability and a shallow draft of 14". The flat running characteristic of the Maritime hull and the 50 degree deadrise of the bow allow the Patriot to efficiently part the waves while the rounded bow and extreme flare deflects spray away from passengers and crew. Most Maritime dealers will purposely schedule demo rides to coincide with rough weather so they can demonstrate how well a Maritime hull performs and how safe and comfortable the 23' Patriot is for the entire family.
