BT Lightning





“A Game Changer for the High Horse Power, High Speed Tournament Angler” the Beavertail Skiffs Lighting offers the ultimate fishability, worthy of the extreme tournament angler.

The Beavertail Skiffs Lightning took over a year in the making and included collaboration with one of the industry’s leading race hull designers. This skiff combines the ultimate flats fishing platform with a comfortable, dry, fast but predictable ride not seen to-date flats boats.

The Lightning features a stepped hull design, which reduces the wetted surface the hull and increases the boat’s efficiency, speed and fuel economy. The stepped hull delivers an incredibly stable and predictable ride and our signature Carolina flared bow ensures a dry ride at lower speeds. In addition, the absence of hard waterline transitions reduces hull slap while at rest or under trolling motor power.

Boasting 360° fishability, the huge unobstructed forward casting area features an anchor locker and plenty of dry storage. The aft platform features a 35-gallon oval livewell and two large dry insulated storage compartments that can be used as a 120-quart cooler or plumbed as a 26-gallon release well. Combine these features with the ergonomic console, under gunnel rod storage, comfortable seating and oversized gunnels, the Beavertail Skiffs Lightning has 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 Skiffs owners have come to expect, each Lightning is custom configured for its owner and their fishing lifestyle.
