Hey everyone, There's been a bunch of people from the forum contacting us about our new Cayo 173 skiff we're getting ready to launch so here's a little info. Cayo 173 17' 3" long 62" wide 20-50hp Tiller, side console, center console, and offset console available. Vacuum infused Hull, deck, liner, and consoles We started off last year designing our hull on CAD and after a few different designs we had the hull plug CNC cut to our exact specs. The hull has a rounded chine entry for ZERO hull slap and forms into a sharp reverse chine towards the stern. The bottom of the hull has 4 strakes and a 2 degree V. The hull also has the deepest largest continuos integrated spray rails in its class for a VERY dry ride. After the hull mold was made we ran the hull with a temporary wooden deck, 10 gallons of fuel, 2 guys (215lbs/ 185lbs), and a 20 horse Tohatsu tiller with a stock 3 blade prop. We were able to hit 26 mph and we're really happy how well and dry it ran. Next was designing the deck. We went with 2 very large molded in hatches with finished buckets in the rear deck and 1 large molded in hatch with finished bucket for the front deck. All the hatches have deep gutters and drains. All hinge and latch areas are recessed to give you a perfectly flush deck. The standard skiff will be offered in a open bulkhead with no subfloor/ cored raw glass finished cockpit. We'll also be offering a finished inner cockpit liner very soon Hull prices starting at $7495.00 I'll try to answer all questions on here but you can always call, text or email me anytime. Our Demo skiff will be available for sea trials by 2/28/15. Enjoy the skiff porn!!!

This was with 1 guy standing on the stern and it floats skinnier with another on the bow.
