Rental Boat #2 - Details
This is by far our most luxurious
rental boat and for that reason she is not rented to anyone for fishing or crabbing. The 150hp Honda 4-Stroke outboard
motor provides a top end of about 40mph with 2 people onboard. She'll still do well over 30mph even with a full
load of 13 people. As with most 4-stroke motors, she is quiet running, clean burning and fuel efficient while being
easy to operate, extremely stable, smooth riding and shallow draft.
This is a custom built
luxury liner designed to accommodate large groups, families and couples who want comfort for their day on the water.
She was built to replace our pontoon boats which were found to be inferior for operating on the Chesapeake Bay.
Not only is she significantly faster but also far more stable and seaworthy. The design goal was to provide the
shallow draft and seaworthiness of a Carolina Skiff with the ease of operation and comfort of a pontoon boat ...
she has far exceeded all expectations and continually complimented by renters.
This boat is perfect for folks with a reasonable amount of boating experience that wish to spend the day exploring,
sightseeing, picnicking, sun-lounging, swimming or visiting a waterfront restaurant for lunch or dinner in comfort.
She is fast enough to explore distant locations like Kent Island, Wye River or the Little Choptank River as well
as all local areas like St. Michaels, Oxford and Kent Narrows.

This was our last 21'
Pontoon Boat. Notice how low in the water she rode ... not very good for safety, stability or seaworthiness.
This is our new custom
built SkiffToon. Notice how high in the water she rides with a similar passenger load ... much safer, far more
stable and seaworthy.
