Siesta Skiff 17

The Siesta Skiff 17 is a true water born SUV! 

The shallow draft of the Siesta Skiff 17 lets you go places most other boats could not even think about.  While its rough water capability lets you go out on days other 17 footers wouldn't dare.  Combined with an incredibly fast and efficient hull bottom, the Siesta Skiff 17 is the whole package: fast, efficient, rides great, and goes shallow.  Leave those other boats in your wake and be the first one to the fish!

The Siesta Skiff 17 has a feature rich modified-V hull. The design features include three lifting strakes per side, wide reverse chines, Bow Flare, a sharp entry and a delta pad.  The lifting strakes, bow flare and reverse chine knock spray down which makes for a very dry ride even on a windy day.  They also make the Siesta Skiff 17 corner like its on rails, no side slide here!  The sharp entry cuts through waves for a smooth ride. Finally the delta pad makes the Siesta Skiff 17 extremely fast and fuel efficient.  This hull design will actually plane out twice!  Once like a normal boat and then on the delta pad.  Once running on the delta pad speed and fuel efficiency sky rocket!

The Siesta Skiff 17 was designed to be the last boat you'll ever buy.  It's all composite construction will stand the test of time.  It's high performance hull is an incredible ride!  NO other boat on the market can match the ride, construction and economy of the Siesta Skiff 17.
