ENGINEERED for Better Fishing___
Catch your personal best this summer with a vessel designed for ultimate fishability.
We've packed the SKF117 with features designed to give you a better fishing experience, from skeg to hull and everything in between. With our spring-loaded skeg system, you control how your kayak moves, allowing you to get the most out of your vessel no matter the waterways you're fishing.
Our unique hull design blends the stability and efficiency of a catamaran with the maneuverability of a traditional paddleboard to give you greater control, and confidence, on the water. But we didn't stop there. The SKF117 is designed to be highly customizable, with tons of opportunities to rig your vessel just the way you want it. The SKF117 is also Bonafide Sidekick compatible.
No matter where you fish or how, with the SKF117 on your side, you just can't miss.
Whether you're seeking accessibility in the hard to reach mangroves hunting for snook or hitting the lake for an afternoon of paddling with the family, the SKF117 will be your secret weapon.
