The skiff company you’ve come to associate with bay boats, Carolina Skiff is ready to introduce its new model. The Carolina Skiff 19 SWS isn’t even listed on CS’s website yet, but it’s already winning awards.
Florida Sportsman featured this new model on their latest episode of best boats. Read on below to see what their boat experts had to say about this new offering.
About the Boat
Carolina Skiff’s newest offering measures in at 19 feet with a 7.9-foot beam. It has a 3-inch draft, a 30-gallon capacity tank and runs at 1590 lbs. With these measurements, the new 19 SWS is a great multi-use bay boat pick.
Don’t assume that because it’s designed to work and play, that it lacks features or finishings. Carolina Skiff put a lot of work into making this boat able to work but look ready to play. The base model comes with recessed pop-up cleats, hatch lifters, and a beautiful center console.
The center console is family friendly, the way that other boats aren’t. All the switches are labeled and up high, away from over-energetic kids. The optional fabric/plastic T top offers electronic & rod storage while giving riders a break from the sun.
The center console’s windshield pops off, so it’s not covered in dead bugs from high speeds. Just pop it on and off when you’re ready to go. One of the expert’s favorite features, the backrest on the driver’s chair flips, for fishing/driving use.
Speaking of fish, this boat offers two live wells, one in the front and one in the back. They’re located in the boat’s casting decks. The front casting deck has its own live well, refrigerated fish storage, and options for two pedestal seats.
The rear deck offers its own live well, fish storage, and gas/battery tank. These two decks give both families and fisherman room other bay boats don’t offer.
For large families or hard-working fishermen, the experts deemed this boat “indestructible”. You won’t need to spend two days a month waxing this boat in your driveway, even if it bumps once or twice on the dock.
The easy-to-clean interior is great for fishermen pulling up cast nets or kids who spill more than they eat. This new offering from Carolina Skiff is a great do-it-all offering and runs around 19,000 MSRP.
