About Us

Located in Bradenton, Florida, Beavertail Skiffs is owned and operated by Will and Elizabeth Leslie of  Aeon Marine LLC with their dedicated seasoned crew, skilled in Design, Tooling, Lamination, Assembly, Rigging and Aluminum fabrication.

Through consultation with some of the finest guides in the shallow water industry, Beavertail Skiffs are engineered and built with zero compromises and advanced technology offering artistic design with the very best in performance, quality and durability.

Potential clients are encouraged to go out and try out the various skiffs on the market and compare to determine which is the best suited for their lifestyle and fishing. There is no better way to disparage the claims companies can so readily make than to examine and put to the test the real world true performance, whether it’s the draft, no slap hull, ease of poling, stability at rest, dryness and / or comfort of ride.

The “Try Before You Buy” program was introduced for this very reason and has proven successful. Clients can spend a ½ day with a Beavertail Skiff Pro Team Captain to fish and actually experience first-hand the Skiffs. It is evident from the get go that all claims made are precise not just marketing hype. The full cost of the charter is credited at the time of ordering a new Skiff.

The company is built on an “open door” philosophy. For those customers fortunate enough to be able to travel to the facility a ‘hands on approach’ is welcomed to witness their dream BT skiff come to fruition. For those a little further out of pocket, Will & Elizabeth consult and share every step of the build process to ensure their Beavertail Skiff meets and exceeds their unique specifications and expectations.

Customer service is paramount. At Beavertail Skiffs the crew goes all-out to ensure that every customer from initial contact to the years ahead owning a skiff has a memorable experience.
