17 Palm Beach

Lake & Bay Palm Beach 17

Lake & Bay’s Palm Beach 17’6″ Flats Boat was designed off the Lake & Bay flagship the Boca Grande 20. Not every angler wants a 20-foot flats boat and that is where the Palm Beach comes in. The shorter boat with a built-in folding tongue trailer will fit in some garages and storage spots easier without sacrificing the legendary Lake & Bay ride.  It is tough to find a better 17-foot flats boat built with the same materials and technology. The Palm Beach allows for long runs with its large 45-gallon gas tank. Its 40-gallon livewell will allow you to catch and transport enough bait to last you the entire day. Other features include a spacious front storage compartment, two lockable rod lockers able to hold 10’ fly rods, an anchor locker, under seat storage and multiple large rear storage compartments. With the choice of a side or center console location and different console designs, the Palm Beach can be customized to fit your needs. Experience how a shallow water boat should ride and fish. Lake and Bay have been building custom, high-performance flats boats and tournament boats for over 35 years. In a world of change, it’s nice to know some things never change like the quality, ride, performance, and features of Lake and Bay Boats.
