STAPLE IN OFFSHORE ANGLING LAUNCHES
ITS BIGGEST VESSEL YET .
WEST COAST BOATERS KNOW THE NAME SKIPJACK is synonymous with tough offshore fishing. Up until now, though, most of the company's offerings were in the 26-to-32-foot range. Not anymore.
The newest addition to Skipjack's fleet is the 380 Flying Bridge, which is ready and able to head directly out to sea for your toughest competitions. She is equipped with 580 gallons of fuel, making her a prime candidate for long-range runs and multi-day tournaments. She's lightweight too -competitive with others in her size range - which leads to nimble performance and efficiency.
But we know what you're really looking for in a sportfisher, and that's fishability. The cockpit measures 120 square feet, which can be customized to some extent in order to meet your particular needs. Standard features include a 60-gal-Ion bait tank, a 13-cubic-foot ice-or fishbox, large, built-in fiberglass lockers and coaming pads to protect your knees when you have a big catch at the other end of the line.
The flybridge, accessible from a stainless steel ladder, has perfect visibility; all you need is an experienced skipper to ensure proper maneuverability when the fishing gets hot. A wrap-around helm station provides a ton of space for your electronic needs, and two adjustable helm seats keep things from getting lonely up there. There is also an easily accessed forward lounge console; with 7 feet of insulated space, it's ideal for rod storage.
Skipjack knows that not every-one is on board for the angling, so interior styling was designed with both functionality and comfort in mind. The 380 Flying Bridge does not come with an interior steering station, which gives the salon an open and airy feeling starting with the double door that leads from the cockpit. The 9-foot portside galley is generous compared to other boats in this size range, which often have a postage-stamp-size countertop to work with, set a couple of steps down from the salon. Not the case here, where the living space is all on the same deck. There is a sink stainless steel set in the counter, a four-burner stove and a side-by-side refrigerator and freezer; a large settee with a table in front of it for casual meals is located to starboard.
The brightly lit master stateroom is located forward and features a queen-size berth and two cedar-lined hanging lockers; the guest stateroom has upper and lower twin berths. Dual doors lead
to the head from the companionway. or the master; there is an electric toilet and a separate shower stall.
Finally, it is equipped with 550 hp twin Cummins common rail diesel as standard or choose your own ad-venture with the wide variety of twin engine installations that are available. ..
