The design team had lofty goals when tasked with reimagining the top-selling Masters 247. The redesign focused on opening up more cockpit space behind the leaning post, redesigning the console to accommodate d-tubing, and incorporating a tempered glass windshield, along with other minor improvements. The results are a stunning bay boat that performs as well as it looks. This top-selling 24' bay boat is miles ahead of its time and ready for serious fishing. The deck features dual aquarium livewells, a large bow casting deck with lockable rod storage, plenty of comfortable seating for up to 10 people, best-in-class bilge access, and much more. All of this is paired with a very capable hull designed for shallow water and a smooth ride. The Masters 247 now features the revolutionary Seakeeper Ride System in a first-of-its-kind built-in pocket design. This system uses actuators and stabilization technology to improve the ride quality in any condition, providing a smoother and more comfortable ride for all onboard. The Seakeeper Ride system is seamlessly integrated into the boat's transom design, making it virtually invisible. With this cutting-edge feature, the Masters 247 sets a new standard for bay boats and offers a level of comfort and stability that was previously unheard of in its class.

Interior LED Lighting Package
When the sun goes down, the cockpit comes to life. The included lighting package is as beautiful as it is functional, a blue glow covers every inch of the cockpit for safety and aesthetics.
AlloChrome4200+™ Stainless Fasteners
AlloChrome4200+™ is a revolutionary new stainless coating capable of lasting up to fifteen times longer than typical chrome coating. This means that independent testing shows that these fasteners can withstand over 4,200 hours of salt spray protection
Pull Up Cleats
High quality Gemlux pull-up cleats are standard throughout the boat. They offer a flush installation and very smooth operation.
Self Bailing Cockpit
This important safety feature allows any water on the deck to drain overboard and not into the bilge area. Any water that seeps into the bilge, can only be pumped out by the bilge pump, which is slow at draining large amounts of water. All Sportsman Boats have a collector box drainage system that ties in all drains from the deck and redirects the water directly overboard without mechanical assistance.
Grip Tex Yacht Style Non-Skid
This texture is applied to the deck and step areas for a uniform random non-skid coat. This type of non-skid is not patterned and is easy to repair should it ever get chipped or damaged.
High Speed Livewell Pick Up
As the name suggests, high speed pick ups ensure that your livewell is receiving a consistent water supply even at high speeds. The scoop shape design directs water into the intake and reduce air locks at high speeds.
