Dragonfly 17- This Dragon Flies!

Only it’s new and constructed of tough, modern materials making it a perfect blend of tradition and technology. No other skiff hits a nerve like the Dragonfly 17.

Emerger 16 - Me, My Boat, The Water

We were talking…fishing guides and I, about making a light skiff for one or two anglers. A skiff that wouldn’t beat your brains out “getting there” but at the same time would easily access the high flats skinny. Hence, the Emerger.

It’s different and simple too. Available in either tiller or center console version (your choice) the Emerger is designed with a unique bottom configuration so you’ll be in the whisper zone before you know it. Not for amateurs.

Emerger Center Console Base Price: $23,000         Emerger Tiller Model Base Price: $21,000
