    Looking to buy Ankona center console or Beavertail center console. 16'-17' or larger with poling platform and rod storage for fly rods.

    Would like to spend 15k-18k max. Close to Charleston, SC area or upstate SC would be ideal as work schedule does not permit much time off.

    A brand new Ankona is in that budget.

    There's a beavertail on the forum for 18.5k and the guy would probably take 15-16k depending on your negotiating skills.

    Jappy, have you thought about a NEW ankona? I'm pretty sure all their models fully rigged are in your price range... But may be a few months of waiting (I recently priced something with them and was told 3 months)

    I've been exchanging talk with Ankona today. 2-3 month lead on SUV. Copperhead is closer to a year.

    New is great, but if a used skiff saves cash and time and keeps me on the water then that's even better.

    Of course a new skiff would give me something to look forward too.

    /2 on buying a used one because you can get more boat for your money and be fishing for 6 months instead of waiting.

    Plus what you want is going to change over time.

    Buy this, have $$ left over, and you may never buy another boat.

    Yeah, the SilverKing looks nice. I fish out of my friends #1 off the line SiverKing and it is an awesome skiff. 16 footer.

    nice. same deck layout as mine, offset console makes for lots of room. Those were good motors and looks really clean. Gotta do 40 some mph.
