A low-profile, easy-poling flats boat that can actually handle a chop.

For this boat, I’ve again used my well-proven 17.5 tunnel hull, yet stretched 6″ to an 18-footer. This hull design, which runs in less than 10 inches, remains extremely dry because of its aggressive spray rails and retains a comfortable ride because of its 30 degree deadrise at the entry. The hull is very stable to pole and fish because of its extra beam.

This Tournament Edition Flats Boat is outfitted with all the options, including:

  • LED running lights and under-gunnel lights
  • Anchor hatch and storage in the bow deck
  • Varnished teak bow rail/fly line retainer
  • Custom actuated console with built in live well, rod holders and fuel fill
  • Under gunnel fly rod storage and drink
  • Large storage compartment and accesses under the bench seat
  • Back rest
  • Custom poling platform
  • Recessed push pole holder and cleats
  • Hydraulic jackplate
  • Insulated fish/drink boxes
  • 70 hp 4-stroke Yamaha

Note: This is not a production boats. Each boat is hand-crafted to the owner’s specifications.
