NorthCoast 18 Skiff

Designed for coastal angling and day tripping, the NorthCoast 18 Skiff is efficient, fast, smooth riding, and virtually maintenance free. The solid fiberglass hull, foam cored cockpit floor, and foam filled fiberglass grid stringer system combine to create a lightweight, incredibly tough and durable composite structure. The transom is fiberglass and high-density foam core composite – no wood here!!

Add the optional forward casting platform and you have plenty of seating and a great platform from which fly-fishing or conventional fishing is a pleasure. The huge storage compartments below are a bonus!! The hull’s deep forefoot cleaves any chop while the shallow-V aft promotes planning, and provides a stable platform for trolling, drifting or at rest.

The NorthCoast 18 Skiff – ready to go anywhere you want, whenever you can!!
