When passion is focused in design and the goal is to hunt the most wary gamefish in the world, it’s time to rethink everything.

The Beavertail Skiffs Elite was designed with professional guides and hardcore anglers in mind. And after much research and collaboration with the finest pros in the industry, this technical skiff can deliver anglers to the fishing zone, silently stalk trophy fish and stand the test of time. The Beavertail Skiffs Elite was truly a labor of love and we’ve poured as much passion into her as the folks that will fish her!

The hull of the Elite is designed to reduce hull slap and soften the ride, it tracks very efficiently while poling and holds its position in the wind. In addition, the design maximizes forward momentum – this skiff will feel like it’s gliding after you push it and has the ability to spin on a dime.

The Elite achieves a remarkably smooth, dry ride without using large bulky spray rails by utilizing the Beavertail Skiffs signature Carolina flare bow, along with small spray lines up the sides of the hull. It’s an incredibly quite hull that produces a dry ride and it’s able to cross open water comfortably while still floating in super shallow water.

The Elite was designed to be the most versatile fishing skiff on the market. We considered every detail that would help target trophy fish, including larger and more comfortable poling platforms, accessibility of the compartments and rigging, a large dry storage space, the height and shape of the console, “no-frustration rod racks” and large livewells plumbed to meet your needs. The Elite also includes “military grade shock mitigation technology” in the seat cushions to provide the ultimate in comfort.

Since the Elite was designed first and foremost for the professional fishing guide and hardcore angler, this rugged skiff can be easily repaired when the inevitable dings and scratches come along. Our construction starts with the highest quality gel coat and is backed up with the most advanced coring & carbon Kevlar materials. All hulls are infused to create a skiff that is built to the highest standards and take on the toughest of conditions.

The Elite was a true labor of love when designing this skiff!
