The Carolina Skiff 21 Ultra Elite provides the best of both worlds when it comes to versatility and comfort. You can do anything in this boat from cruising to the islands, or heading a few miles offshore to fish! The modified-V hull provides a superior ride in any application you may want to use the boat for. From fishing to skiing to tubing, this boat truly does it all!

Powered by a Yamaha 150 4-Stroke engine she sips fuel and is fast out of the hole. Lots of features and plenty of seating for up to 14! While the boat can hold 14 people ideally with 8-10 or less it runs much better.

There are several different pick up options that you may choose from. If you are experienced, we can meet up and you can tow it yourself to the boat ramp of your choosing and bring it back the same way. If you want me to launch and retrieve it for you I am more than happy to do that as well! The choice is totally up to you.

This little boat will seat 6, it is a small boat. Only 16 feet long, but very easy to move around and get into areas that other boats cannot. Makes fishing in the flats much easier. We do offer a boat lift or dock for you to tie to for extended rentals if needed and available. We also offer the trailer (included with rental) if you would rather keep it with you. There are several areas to store your boating supplies. We also offer Airbnb homes that are on the water, so if you are looking for a place to stay and walk out your back door onto a boat, we have just the place for you. Bring your fishing poles and smiles. You will love this little boat. I can provide crab pots for an additional cost.
