24.5 Foot Skiff Built for Any Alaskan Adventure
Coastwise Corporation completed the detail design and construction support of a new walkthrough style sport boat. This vessel is designed to be a multi-function Alaskan skiff built for fishing, beach operations, wildlife viewing or even hauling light cargo.
The new 24.5-foot-long by 8.5-foot-wide aluminum sport craft is built for any Alaskan adventure. This vessel is powered by twin 140 horsepower outboard engines that when paired with the other design elements, boasts a performance of 3 miles per gallon at 22 miles per hour. This vessel was designed with an open bow ideal for beach landings and optimal wildlife viewing while also capable of hauling plywood, 20 foot long lumber or a side loading ATV. Other features of this vessel include eight roof-top rocket launcher fishing rod holders as well as two down riggers in the stern for premier fishing. This craft is also setup to support the future installation of a davit for a 250 pound pot puller.
The vessel was constructed by Bay Welding Services in Homer, Alaska. Coastwise Corporation was able to utilize our extensive knowledge of Alaska area fishing and passenger operations for the design of this unique multi-function vessel.
