2020 Hell’s Bay Waterman F70
My reason is simple, the performance is proven with maverick, hells bay, east cape, beavertail, etc. I owned an ankona native 17 for 7-8 years, was a decent boat but the differences between these other skiffs I mentioned are night & day. Go test drive some, if the manufacture doesn’t give you the time of day then steer clear.These are the opinions I was looking for but would like your reasons so I can consider. Used mavericks seem to run in the same range pricewise as the Tavernier new depending on options. I'm not partial to maverick just had my experience with one but I assume skiffs in the same class should provide similar pros and cons.
