Our entry into the hybrid bay boat market is a stunning departure from traditional bay boat layouts. We took over two years to design the Malvado’s aggressive styling and complex running surface, and included new features like multiple helm options, seating for up to 10 people, up to three baitwells (front and back wells are standard), an extra-large fish box, lockable rod storage, coaming bolsters, jack plate, tons of storage and an enclosed head area. The under gunnel rod storage is even unique, accommodating fully assembled fly rods. The result of all our hard work is a boat with superior performance, ergonomics and versatility. Designed as a hybrid boat for both inshore and near shore applications, the Malvado’s ventilated twin step v-pad hull produces better speed, efficiency, stability and handling than her competition. At over twenty-five feet long, she is a super stable platform that handles open bays and near shore trips with ease. A hull draft of only 13” gives her access to skinny water, while the sharp entry and flared bow shed water when running in chop. The Malvado 26’ features an ample front deck with storage and integrated seating, as well as a large aft deck with jump seats and storage. The Malvado isn’t built like other boats in her class either. As with other Bonefish brand boats, she is designed using a semi-monocoque technique and constructed from carbon fiber, aramid (Kevlar) and bi-axial fiberglass that is infused with epoxy vinyl ester resin around closed cell foam coring. Translation; she’s stronger and lighter. If you’re looking for the best hybrid bay boat on the market…you've found it.
