When we designed the Elite, we had professional guides and hardcore anglers in mind. And after much research and collaboration with the finest pros in the industry, we delivered a technical skiff which can deliver anglers to the fishing zone, silently stalk trophy fish and stand the test of time. The Beavertail Elite was truly a labor of love and we've poured as much passion into her as the folks that will fish her!
The hull shape of the Elite was designed to track very efficiently, while poling, and to hold it’s position in the wind. It also eliminates hull slap and softens the ride. In addition, the effect of the design is that forward momentum is maximized - the skiff will feel like it’s gliding after you push it, yet has the ability to spin on a dime.
By utilizing the Beavertail Skiff signature Carolina flare style shape and putting small spray lines 3/4 up the sides of the hull, we have achieved a remarkably smooth and dry ride, on the Strike, without using large bulky spray rails. Due to its design we've achieve an incredibly quite hull that is quite possibly the driest riding flat bottom skiff - and is able to cross open water comfortably while still floating in super shallow water.
Designed to be the most versatile fishing skiff on the market, we thought of every detail that would help target trophy fish. From the accessibility of the compartments and rigging, to the large dry storage space, to the height and shape of the console, to the "no-frustration rod racks".
