Hull Design:
The Hoplite's unique design sets it apart from any skiff or aluminum jon boat design. The "multi-step V lift pad" provides advantages of both V hull and flat bottom. The "V lift pad" widens from bow to stern, getting the boat upon plane quickly and then steps down the wetted surface allowing less water friction and more speed. The V forward combined with bow flare and reverse chines provides a dry, smooth ride in a stiff chop and extreme responsiveness in a hard turn. Shallow draft.

Available Hull Colors:

Oyster White
(Standard)
Snow White
Fighting Lady Yellow
Seafoam
Sky Blue
Claret Red
Forest Green
Royal Blue
Black

Advantages:
64" bottom width provides greater stability and interior room. Unlike any boat her size she has the largest forward casting platform; greatest cubic ft. of bulk storage and the largest rod storage without stacking.

Construction:
All components are fiberglassed into one unit. Deck to hull is joined mechanically, and 5200 bonded and then fiberglassed. Hi Tech materials and assembly provide for weights almost half of aluminum boats. Carpet or textured gel coat decking. No materials will ever rot.
