The Skull Island 16

THE SKULL ISLAND 16 SKIFF LENGTH 16’2″ | BEAM 60″ | DRAFT 4″ | POWER 20-30 H.P
Nimble, silent, skinny, “make that 4 inches skinny”, turns on a dime, dry, and we mean ultra dry, got your attention? These are all attributes of the Skull Island 16. We have designed the ultimate shallow water platform with no compromises. With the highest grade materials and ingenious construction the Skull Island will challenge the harshest environments while providing you a safe, comfortable, and dry ride in the worst of conditions. The Skull Island 16 does it all. It fishes like a big skiff, maneuvers like a sports car and poles like a feather. This combined with ample storage and the highest grade finish work in the market place makes this boat untouchable.

The Skull Island 16’ can come in several different tiller configurations which allow the boat to be customized to your liking. We recommend 20, 25, and 30 hp Honda 4-strokes on our tiller models. All 3 of these packages perform excellent and come with power start, tilt, and trim. The tiller boats can be built with custom aluminum grab bars with either just a bar or rigged with a custom electronics box. The electronics boxes include military grade switches, an accessory plug, and trim tab switches. We use Yeti coolers in front of the grab bars which double as seats for your angler. We sell 45, 50, and 65 quart Yeti’s all of which fit nicely depending on how much cooler space you desire. The tiller boats can also be equipped with a full center console like the steer models. In this configuration the top of the console can be used for flush mounting electronics and creates an extra storage lid on top. The console can be equipped with a live well or an insulated cooler (built in). If super simple is your desire, the Skull Island 16 can be totally open inside and switches can be mounted cleanly on the rear bulkhead making a completely open cockpit.

16′ TILLER

On the Skull Island console models we recommend a 30 hp Honda 4-stroke. The console and rigging add a bit of extra weight and the 30 Honda pushes the boat nicely. Our consoles are yacht quality and come with a built in insulated cooler which can also be plumbed as a live well. We use Teleflex binnacles and either stainless or aluminum wheels to top off the custom feel of the Skull Island 16. Other options such as push button keyless ignition, GPS, LED lights, yacht grade cushions, etc. are no problem. You want it we’ll build it. All hardware can be powder coated in different colors and finishes to add a unique flare to your Skull Island.
NOTE: These are just a few options. We are in the business of building custom skiffs. Anything from teak cockpits and tow rails to custom lifting hardware to go on the bow of a Sportfish. You want it we will build it .
