The Mitzi 17 is the result of years of input from anglers wanting a larger version of our original 15. What we ended up with was a boat to meet the demands of the professional charter captain or the most demanding shallow water angler. From it's ability to get you home comfortably to its ultra stealthy no hull slap hull, it's truly an angler's boat. The 17's CAD designed hull has enhanced performance second to no other shallow draft skiff, at any price. Looking for an easy to pole boat, that will do 45mph with a 60 Hp engine? Want a boat capable of fishing 3 or 4 people? Want lots of storage, easy maintenance, and a boat that has been called remarkably dry? Look no further.
The 17's wider gunnels, increased rod storage, baitwell and release well options... and a host of other things will make you agree, this is one truly awesome shallow water skiff.
