Selling this brand new Flats Boat! It is a flats fisherman's dream!! It measures at 18Ft long with a 54inch beam. The front casting deck is perfect for fishing off of or casting nets for bait. Fully loaded it only drafts 4 inches!!! There is nowhere you cant get to to catch monster Red Fish, Snook, Trout or any other fish that like shallow water. Self bailing cockpit at any weight up to max!
This boat is near identical in style and performance as a $30k Hells Bay Glades Skiff, but is actually lighter and faster! Unlike most boats that are made with thick fiberglass mat and polyester resins which requires a lot of to be strong (and makes it heavy) This boat is a composite of 1088 Marine boatbuilding plywood at the core, and encased is strong fiberglass cloth. Only marine laminating epoxy was used, NO POLYESTER! Epoxy is stronger, more flexible and does not absorb water and blister like polyester.
4 Gallons of expanding 2 part flotation foam was used under the sole deck to not only provide a solid platform and eliminate the need for a bilge, but provides 600lbs of positive flotation. This boat will not sink even if swamped. The hull, engine and tank only make the boat weigh 400lbs. At max weight (1175lbs) the draft is only 4 inches. That means at lighter weight, you will draft more like 2 inches with one person, 3 inches with 2 people and 4 with a 3rd. The boat is more ideal for 2 people at a time but 3 can fit. The cockpit is 9 ft long, so plenty of storage space and has 3 below deck compartments for fuel, lifejackets, battery, emergency gear, etc.
The bottom has been finished with graphite/epoxy for abrasion resistance, and helps the boat glide onto the trailer or slide off of sandbars/beaches easier since graphite is so slick.
Features a 25HP Yamaha 2 stroke tiller outboard (33mph speed on plane!) with a 6 gallon fuel tank, fuel water separator filter, and the carburators have been recently serviced. Starts up on first pull.
Also equipped with 3 below gunwale rod holders, a 8-16ft telescoping push pole made from Fiberglass and octagonal aluminum (positive locking, not screw tight)
