Our Boat

The Latitude Changer 2470 pursuit is equipped with a Yamaha 300 to get you to the fishing grounds quickly and comfortably. This boat comfortably fits 4 adults with large deck space, comfortable seating, and a wider haul. The boat has a hard-top roof and diesel heater for those colder days and the ability to open up the canvas on those hot, summer days. This boat is ideal for any weather conditions Mother Nature has to offer. A built-in toilet is located in the bow as well as the cuddy-cabin to give you the privacy you need. It also provides a place to rest if you're feeling a little rough and need to lay down. For your fish, we have a custom fish well with a cleaning table on top for easy handling and preparation.
