found a skiff on Craigslist that caught my eye. Before I go look at it...any info would be great. It’s listed as a 1984 15 1/2ft Anacapri flats boat. Couldn’t find any info on them.

Never heard of them but it will most likely be wood given the year it was built. Those old mercs are easy to work on but definitely do a compression test and make sure you’re getting good water pressure too. Cool classic lines on it!

Old Miami boat builder, probably no longer in business. My brother owned one of their larger offshore boats and a good friend had one built from the factory as a snapper/grouper commercial boat; good quality builds.

As already noted - good solid boats that were built down here for years -but probably not a lightweight rig... I never heard of them working with composites so I'd expect to find a wooden transom and deck under generous amounts of glass.... Don't believe I've ever seen or heard of a small skiff by them. Depending on your needs and how you plan to use it - that might be something worth owning - or not...

Thanks for all the info! Just looking for a decent little skiff to fish the flats. Biggest concern for me was weight of the boat and the wood still being solid. A somewhat dry ride and getting into 8” or so of water is all I need.
