What it does: The inventive Advanced Inverted V hull design provides exceptional stability, great rough-water handling and increased load capacity. With an extra-wide beam, these inshore 16- and 17-foot fishing skiffs have plenty of room for casting and fishing supplies.
Why it won: “After running this boat, I came to really appreciate what can be done on a 17-foot boat,” said judge and Boating World Executive Editor Alan Jones. “And it’s an affordable package of boat, engine and trailer that lowers the barrier to entry for anyone thinking of getting into boating.”
