268 Bryant Boats

Joe Bryant has great success with the 268 bow rider runabout. It is a winner of a new design. Why? The superior boat ride in somewhat rough water in a stiff afternoon chop. That is it. All 233 Bryant boat owners that take a ride, love this boat!

So, what is the new boat model for 2013 from Bryant boats? A 233 using the bottom design features of the successful 268 bow rider. Unlike the current 233, which uses a 20 degree boat bottom and different lifting strakes shape and in their location, the new-for-2013 bow rider boat will be best identified by the same 24 degree bottom that the 268 uses.

All older 233 Bryant boats use a 19 degree bottom design. The 2012 and earlier model year Bryant boats 246 use a 20 degree bottom shape. Using the 24 degree bottom on a 233 Bryant boat gives the ride difference that, after a ride, all 233 boat owners lust after getting a new boat. Expect to see many 233 Bryant boats appear on the used boat market in 2013. Get ready to sell yours now.

The new boat will be all, 100% hand laid, laminated fiberglass. It will be 100% wood free. A tricolor, in-the-molded fiberglass, color combo is to be standard. All Bryant boats have these features, Joe Bryant would not have it any other way. Also, look for an extended swim platform and a fiberglass liner in this 2013 bryant boat bow rider. The new boat model will not be offered as a cuddy cabin model for 2013.

Figure on a 49 gallon gas tank, a 8’ 6” (102”) beam and a weight of 3,500- 3,800 lbs for the 23′ 3″ boat.

Boat test numbers are 53-55 mph wide open. She burns 6 1/2 to 7 gallons an hour at a best cruising speed of 26-28 mph at 3,000 rpm. This is with a 300 Horsepower/350 cubic inch chevy engine and a Bravo III drive.
