If you have dreamed of finding a 20’ skinny water boat that truly will
run in less than 2 inches of water, then now’s your chance. Micro Draft skiffs
are being custom built to order right here in the west central Florida. Imagine
a 20’ long, 8’ wide, 3” draft (at rest), 100% composite hull that weighs less
than 750 lbs.
Micro Draft hulls are custom built passionately by hand, one at a time. They can
be finished and rigged completely to your specifications or delivered as a
“Guide Ready” package. All Micro Draft hulls have a very unique designed raked
tunnel hull system that actually creates lift under the hull and allows it to
run where no other skiff can, with or without a tunnel hull. No longer is a jet
foot needed to reach those hard to get to fishing holes. There is more room to
fish, more angler capacity and all the standard features of many skiffs.
The Micro Draft “Guide Ready” is rigged standard with a 50 hp four-stroke
outboard engine mounted on a jack plate. While running, you can lift the prop
completely above the planing surface of the boat to allow for near zero running
draft. The best thing about a Micro Draft is that it will do all this while
carrying 4 passengers. It has the tools of the trade too, including dual live
wells with high speed pick-ups, elevated casting platform, insulated cooler,
trolling motor with a 24-volt on board charging system, ample dry storage,
recessed rod holders and a custom aluminum trailer. Compare that to the
competition! You get twice the boat, performance and economy. The primary goal
of the creator of Micro Draft was to engineer and build a skinny water skiff
that provided unparalleled practical performance.
Micro Draft skiffs were born in the back country creeks of Ozello, Florida.
Guide owned and operated, the creator of Micro Draft knew what he was missing by
not getting into the shallowest creeks in the area. Airboat trips through the
mazes of mangrove creeks along the coast provided numerous glimpses of
over-sized redfish and gator trout holding, untouched in these skinny creeks and
bays. Guiding from an airboat wasn’t even considered as an option. So the design
and construction of the first generation of Micro Draft skiffs began.
After just a few hulls, the unique Micro Draft design was mastered. Now the
Micro Draft 20 is 100% super strong and lightweight composite technology. The
interior on the “Guide Ready” model has come to life with what is now a very
well though out fishing skiff with all the features and rigging needed to get
the job done. You can even design and layout your Micro Draft skiff completely
to your own specifications if you prefer. It’s no wonder many professionals who
make a living fishing the skinniest of waters already own a Micro Draft skiff.
They all claim it, but we can confirm it. The Micro Draft is a back country
skiff that is second to none in performance and price.
