“A Game Changer for the High Horse Power, High Speed Tournament Angler” the Beavertail Lighting offers the ultimate fishability, worthy of the extreme tournament angler.
The Beavertail Lightning took over a year in the making, and we knew from the get-go that this project was not one to be rushed. We would need to seek the expertise from the ‘performance boating’ sector, collaborating with one of the industries leading race hull designers. Our combined focus was to create the ultimate flats fishing platform with a guaranteed comfortable, dry, fast-yet-predictable ride not seen to-date in the flats boat class.
The Lightning features a step in the hull design, which reduces the wetted surface area on an already proven fast hull, increasing the boat’s efficiency, speed and fuel economy. The step has also in-turn delivered our much sought after incredibly stable and predictable ride. We retained our signature Carolina flared bow to guarantee a continued dry ride at lower speeds, with no hard waterline transition in order to assure a silent, no-hull-slap boat at rest or under trolling motor power.
Upon completion and through rigorous testing the Lightning has truly delivered on all performance aspects – above and beyond any of our original expectations.
Boasting 360° fishability, the huge unobstructed forward casting area features an anchor locker, plentiful dry storage in addition to the aft platform that features a 35 gallon, oval Livewell and two large dry insulated storage compartments that can be used as 120qt coolers or be plumbed as 26 Gal release wells. Combine these features with the ergonomic console, under gunnel rod storage, comfortable seating and oversized gunnels the Beavertail Lightning has undoubtedly the winning formula for any serious tournament angler.
Construction starts with the highest quality gel coat and is backed up with the most advanced coring & carbon kevlar materials. The hull is infused to create a structure that is built to the highest standards and able to take on the toughest of conditions.
As all Beavertail owners have come to expect, each Lightning is custom-built for its owner and their fishing lifestyle.
