New 17ft Skiff

I got a call the other day from a builder. He wanted me to take some pics of his skiff that he is building. This is the plug. He has to do a finish sanding on it before he builds the mold. I got permission to post a couple pics!

Hull length is 17'6", 58" at waterline, and max 90hp. Estimated draft sub 7".
Base model retail expected around 15k.
Full trim package around 25k.

Bow flair


Hull shot


Step


I will try to answer all the questions that I can about the skiff so post away.
Seeing is believing and this is a very impressive design. If you are interested on seeing more of the skiff shoot me an email at [email protected]

Impressive designs are those that had a prototype built and real world testing done before plugs are made. I have only seen one company do it so far - Chittum. I am in no way saying their build/cost is effective for most buyers, but everyone seems to think you can make it work without testing first. This is why starboard spray rails are added to hulls or why your boat doesn't do certain things well. Builders care more about production than R&D due to income VS expense.

Sam from Saltyshores.com came over and shot a shore video showing the lines of the hull and the sound qualities of the material.

Bohemian Boatworks LLC. This model is the Bohemian 17.

The boat will be offered as a package with a 70 HP Yamaha 4 stroke , Ameritrail aluminum trailer , poling platform and a carbon fiber pushpole for $ 27,000 that includes trim tabs, center or offset console, and hydraulic steering. Fuel should be @ 22 gallons. Complete specs and options lists will be available soon. In the meantime we are going full ahead with the tooling.

I'm sure we will partner up with several engine manufacturers once we get started so customers can buy the brand that they like and can get serviced in their local area.
