Including 32-foot offshore model debuting at the Miami International Boat Show next month

NauticStar engineers have been hard at work, cranking out the 195 Bay Boat in August, followed up by the 251 Hybrid last fall — and will be debuting their largest offshore model yet, the 32 XS Offshore, at the Miami International Boat Show next month.

“To say ‘we have been busy at NauticStar’ is an understatement,” NauticStar President Tim Schiek said. “We have assembled a strong team of marine experts focused on delivering the highest quality and best performing boats in their segment. This is not only driving continuous improvement in our boat building processes, but throughout the entire organization.”

The 251 Hybrid offers a fresh look and a new 25-foot model to NauticStar’s hybrid lineup. This unique multi-purpose vessel offers the perfect size and features for a family friendly pleasure boat — and a tournament ready fishing platform.

NauticStar has also moved into the 30-foot-plus category with its newest member of the family: the 32 XS Offshore. This saltwater performer delivers all the necessary fishing features for the serious angler with a smooth, dry, comfortable ride — and cutting edge styling and comfort features never seen in a boat of this style and size.

With its 10-foot, 6-inch beam, the 32 XS Offshore offers a spacious and comfortable bow that features large forward lounge seating with arm rests and plush wrap-around bow seats. The head console has a fully lined interior with a sink, SeaDek® floor and electric flush toilet. It has a spacious and ergonomic helm to allow for dual 12-inch or 16-inch multifunction displays. The leaning post features ergonomically correct Llebrock® double billfish seats with flip-up bolsters and pivot arms. It has a sink, tackle storage and a slide-out, 35 Qt. YETI® cooler. The D-channel, integrated T-top can be fitted with a variety of options such as a retractable shade, and fold-down cockpit television. Aft, the jump seats flip-up for a spacious fishing deck with sizable, in-floor fish boxes and large port side dive door.

“Engineered for exceptional reliability and performance, the new 32 XS Offshore carries forward NauticStar’s 100 percent wood-free construction and one-piece foam-filled fiberglass stringer system,” said Ryan Witt, director of engineering. “Additionally, we’ve added some great new design features such as sculpted hull sides, a side-entry cockpit door and large insulated in-floor fish boxes. The 32 XS Offshore also features cutting edge technologies with NaviOP® digital vessel control system and Klipsch® custom-tuned audio system.”
