I didn’t think I’d ever sell this skiff but the day has come. Up for sale is my 2015 Beavertail Ambush Skiff w/custom Continental Aluminum trailer + extras. (My 8hp 2stroke Yamaha went to a friend.) I purchased this boat from Capt. Gregg McKee over in Cape Coral a few years ago and it’s served me really well. Such a fun skiff, especially with the 8hp. The last photo was from a keys trip when I had the 6hp Tohatsu. I’m about 200lbs and It ran about 16mph with the 6hp and over 20mph with the 8hp Yamaha. I’ve taken this little boat all over, from the Indian River, the keys, and 18 miles deep into the Everglades national park on a camping/fishing venture, and it has handled it all. Super fun minimalist skiff, I am really sad to see it go honestly..

Deal Includes :
-2015 Beavertail Ambush w/ Seafoam Hull (title in hand)
-Custom 2018 Continental Aluminum Trailer w/easy lube hubs (title in hand)
-Custom Aluminum Grab Bar
-Teak SeaDek
-14’ Carbon Marine Push Pole
-36” Teak/Seafoam Marine Mat Fish Ruler
-Adjustable Tiller Extension
-6gal Fuel Tank w/fuel line and Yamaha Connection
-2 Fuel Bottles
-Kayak Anchor/line

$3000

Location Delray Beach, FL
(Will drive to meet within reasonable distance)

I have really been intrigued by these little skiffs lately. I know it’s probably comparable to a kayak but is it pretty stable to stand and fish from? Considering the shorter beam

It’s like a paddleboard on steroids. I have a 36” wide kayak that I am very unstable standing on, and I stand on this skiff and fly fish from it all day. It’s no pathfinder by any means haha, but if you’re comfortable on a paddleboard, this is very stable. The grab bar is a must have to run these skiffs standing though, and honestly it makes running them way more fun.

It’s also effortless to push pole around too. I’ll even use the pole as a “paddle” to spin around or close a gap quietly.

Yeah they look super fun. Especially to do a trip like you talked about in the Everglades. Does it take on water at all while you’re static and fishing?

Yeah I was also super over weight on that glades trip for the boat with my 200+lb self, an iced down yeti 35 + food, water, gear, etc. The 1-2ft swells on the gulf side on the way to our campsite after exiting the river got interesting. The lighter ride home was way more enjoyable, BUT, I made it! Haha

If I stand way far towards the stern it can trickle up backwards through the deck drain, but was soon as you stand more centered on the hull it drains out. Anything left on the deck drains out as soon as you move forward.
