~A shallow water skiff that can play with the bay boats in big water.

Never before has a company designed a shallow water skiff that can play with the bay boats in big water. Versatile and economical, the Backwater 18 is the first ever panga style- hybrid flats boat. Loads of standard fishing features, top-of-the-line hardware and a unique tunneled running surface make this boat the clear leader in the flats boat class. Features include a large sighting deck a nice forward casting deck with storage, an expansive cockpit and an aft casting deck. The integrated splash well will keep you safe when the seas pick up.

Tournament fisherman and serious anglers are no longer limited by low bow boats to cross big water. The danger of running a small skiff in big water has been eliminated. The ability to reach places never before opens the horizon to anglers everywhere. Add an optional jack plate and it will safely run in less than 8' of water. The most basic 18 comes standard with more features than most similar boats fully loaded with options. There is a lot of competition in the flats boat market. But the Backwater 18 stands alone in features, quality and safety.
