Quality skiff= quality price tag. Pretty sure this skiff was not designed to compete with your average Gheenoe. If you can't afford it, then look elsewhere. There are plenty of mediocre price and quality builders out there in the same size range. Go with them if you don't have the dough. However, put them side by side and I'm sure the difference will be apparent...

yeah boooooy!!!

Quick Poll...


How many Venganza 13's have been sold? What about HB Skate's?
This will follow the same path. If HB can't pull this off, I don't see DragonFly Succeeding...... If they do, more power to them. They build a nice skiff. 

I have never seen a DragonFly boat out on the water............

Fixed it for you PIB

I personally don't think they will focus alot of energy on this one.  Rather have it available as a custom order build.  It can probably be built in a weekend and then hoist the mold up in the rafters until the next order.

It is a sharp little skiff and I hope they can sell a few.

I'm sure that they will probably sell a few but never flood the market. It's going to be a limited sales rig for sure. Another thing to take in to consideration, HB has been making/selling rigs for a while now and are very successful at what they do. Nothing different here, except Dragon is actually at an affordable level. Affordable to one is not the same to another. But normally, those who have to brag are the ones who don't have two nickels to rub... Roll Eyes

Well said...

The only Dragon Fly I have seen in person is this
http://www.dragonflypaddleboards.com/fly-fisher/

Its well made and is a little more than a pro angler. I rather have the Fly but my outback will do for now.

I'm sure there is a condescending label that could be place on the kinda folk whom make that sort of comment but I won't go there with a fellow Microskiffer whose got a sweet boat on order. Instead, I'll explain it this way. I think it comes down to perspective for a lot more folk here than you probably realize. For some more frugal minded people, such as myself, I actually quantify and quality differences between similar products before purchasing. Well, for certain items!!! I'd be a hypocrite if I didn't make that disclaimer. For me, sometimes the added quality of an Item can't Justify the extra $$$! This is especially true for my TOYS! Although I have a great deal of respect for Dragonfly Boatworks, I seriously doubt that there will be significant performance differences between this micro and one of the more economically priced skiffs such as the shadowcast. I have no doubt that the fit and finish will be greater. Dragonfly skiff are mini yatchs. THAT is where you and I probably differ! I couldn't spend 13K on a boat that size NOT because I can't afford it but because I know what I'm going to do with it. I'm gonna abuse the heck out of it!  All of that “higher level of fit and finish” means nothing when the exterior get scratched up OFTEN! I and maybe a few others here don't want a yatch! We want a workboat with a little visual appeal to it. To someone who can't appreciated the “finner” things in a boat because he's too busy trying not to bounce off too many logs in puzzel lake, all those big dollar details go unappreciated and inevitably unwanted!

LOL good one!
I'm reminded of those "Real men...blah blah blah" bumper stickers. I dislike them cause it sounds like a cheap elitist selfserving shot. Maybe as a joke we should have one that says, "Real men build their own dang boat!" lol I would never have one though...

Well said, and my sentiment exactly.  It's not about being able to afford it, which I've said before I'm sure many here can.  It's about what the intended purpose of the boat is.

Haha your kidding right?

All i deal with is 1%ers...
90% of them whine about price.
We have them whine about how their annual service on triple F350's cost $4000.

But when we drop their TENDER back off at the Rybovich yard and tie it back up to their 300' yacht with 2 helicopter pads,  i somehow lose compasion Roll Eyes
