A combination of tried and true marine industry standards and radical, cutting edge skiff technology the Biscayne Boatworks 170 brings something new to the table. The hull sports an extra large and strategically placed and pitched spray rail to create the driest ride of any super skinny skiff in its size range. A rounded stern, inspired by legendary skiff guru Chris Morejohn allows for effortless and silent turns when stalking fish. The raised transom allows for the motor to be tilted completely out of the water for even more stealth.
The deck layout and construction is design to be as simple and maintenance friendly as possible. All hatch gutters have multiple molded drain recesses that drain overboard so all points on the deck can fully drain. Each section of the hull is also designed to drain independently. The cockpit will never drain into your rear storage compartment and your bow locker will never drain into your cockpit and vice versa. A boat that stays clean and dry while not in use will last a lifetime.
The deck hardware on the 170 is all stainless steel and snag free, nothing sticks up if it doesn’t have to, a must for any fly fisherman.
In addition to its design features our skiffs are constructed using a unique combination of composite materials that will never rot, delaminate or blister over time. Its this combination of well thought out design and quality materials that makes the difference between a boat that you use for 5 years and sell and a boat that you refit and re-power for decades. A purchase vs. an investment.
