Trophy Sportfishing Boats, a division of the Brunswick Family Boat Company, is launching an entirely new line of skiffs for 2006. This series is ideal for anglers who need a serious vessel to help them raid the shallows.

The foredeck also houses a large storage compartment. The rear casting deck is recessed, too, and has built-in boxes on both sides that although constructed to hold bait can easily be used for additional storage. The center console offers space for your gear and has a molded cooler seat. It also incorporates rod holders along it sides, but none were created specifically for fly rods. The helm seat has a “flip-flop” backrest so it can be used facing forward or back, and the seat itself hides a large cooler that can be upgraded to a massive 94-quart model.
Pop-up cleats can be added, as can trolling motor mounts and a battery-charging system. You also have your choice of Mercury engine packages, ranging from the standard 75-hp Optimax to a 90-hp Mercury EFI four-stroke. The hull is covered by Trophy’s 10-year structural warranty.
