The first fully vacuum-infused Pathfinder, the new 2500 Hybrid inshore/offshore bay boat combines the integrated aft deck seating of the company's family-friendly TRS series with a high-performance, double-stepped hull similar to that of Pathfinder's HPS models. The 2500 also features a new deck layout, focusing on a large, single-level foredeck, more aft cockpit space, and added freeboard height.

The foredeck is accessed using a transverse step that spans the beam and houses an insulated fish box with optional macerator. To add space aft, behind the standard leaning post and tackle station, Pathfinder notched the back deck on centerline.

The new console features full access to the helm rigging with a forward bifold door. Batteries stowed below are recessed into the floor beneath a clear acrylic lid, freeing up space beneath the console for storage. The drop-in helm pod accommodates a 10-inch electronics display and can be customized with a color preference.
