May 3, 2021

On any given day spent on the water, you can look around and bet Carolina Skiff is one of the most represented brands. Look up from the nameplate, and you are practically guaranteed to see smiles on the faces of cruising families and friends, and the satisfyingly focused gazes of anglers.

Durable, versatile and affordable — as well as thrilling, adventurous and snappy — Carolina Skiff boats are your connection to unlimited saltwater adventure.

Brand Standards

Known for their shallow drafts and generous beams, Carolina Skiff boats have been hosting anglers, families and friends for more than four decades.

Featuring all-fiberglass and composite construction, a molded fiberglass liner, a fiberglass grid system, and a high-density fiber-core foam transom, a Carolina Skiff hull is safe, sure-footed, soft-riding and flex-free. Nonskid surfaces provide secure footing, and cockpit scuppers spirit water to the bilge or overboard.

In-hull foam exceeds U.S. Coast Guard flotation minimums, and hull bottoms on boats built since 2020 are warranted against delamination or separation for 10 years of normal use.

Standard on most models are quick-disconnect windshields, trouble-free LED navigation and interior lighting, cozy diamond-pleated upholstery, molded-in storage compartments and livewells, boarding ladders and more.

Each line and model — four series and 16 models in all — offer plenty of options, including the outboard motor’s brand and size.

LS Series

The redesigned Carolina Skiff LS Series hull provides a smooth, dry, comfortable ride in shallow or deep waters.

Thanks in large part to a raised forward deck and a rear-deck elevated platform, the best fishing is a cast away from anywhere in the boat. At the bow, an upholstered fishing seat further welcomes the angler. The 21 Sport & Fish Dual Console is a favorite of many families.

Across the LS line, whether fighting a fish or just moving through the boat, you and your passengers will feel secure courtesy of port and starboard coaming pads. Bimini tops and T-tops are among options for larger boats in the line.

JLS Series

The modified V-hull of the center-console JLS Series produces a smooth, safe ride on creeks, rivers, bays and beyond, with three models for up to six passengers.

Six flush-mounted rod holders tend active fishing rods, and rod savers starboard and port keep horizontal rods safe.

The JLS boats share many features with their LS cousins: a bow fishing chair, an 18-gallon molded-in livewell, and a three-step telescoping stern swim ladder and platform.

SWS Series

A flat-bottom boat is the ticket for reaching the fishiest shallows, and Carolina Skiff offers two — its 19 SWS and 21 SWS — for crews of up to eight or 12 people, respectively, looking for shallow-water adventure.

The design of both center-console hulls feeds undisturbed water to the prop, producing an easy run with or without a jack plate.

Up top are bow and stern pedestal fishing seats, flush-mounted rod holders, a stern baitwell and, maybe best of all, unhindered movement across a wide-open deck with gravity-fed drains.

Ultra Elite Series

Five Ultra Elite models are built for big fun with big crews of up to 18 people; the two largest boats in the line feature flip-up fiberglass consoles with an access door and a changing curtain.

Fishability is prominent: The 19 Ultra Elite boasts six flush-mounted rod holders plus undergunwale rod storage; its biggest sibling, the 26 Ultra Elite, has a dozen rod holders.

You can make an Ultra Elite your own with a custom color or details, a Bimini top or one of several T-tops, a raw-water washdown, sound systems, or additional gunwale-mounted rod holders.
