HISTORY:

Since 1966, Skipjack boats have withstood the test of time on the open ocean.

You'll see these legacy boats still hard at work well beyond the outer banks and islands. You'll find dedicated owners re-powering their Skipjacks after thousands of hours at sea. While no engine will last forever, a good solid hull is worth keeping when created with timeless nautical styling and solid construction. And that is why you'll still find 35-year-old Skipjacks commanding top dollar

Deadrise on
Skipjack Boats:
The deadrise (the hull angles at the stern) is 18 degrees on all models of Skipjack boats built from 1971 on.  
  When ordering an Airmar Tilted Element, flush mount transducer, we recommend the "Fixed 20 degree tilted version for 16 to 24 degree hulls".
This is for boats from 25 ft to 35 ft.
 
  Deadrise for Skipjack Boats built before 1971 was less, and we suggest you measure the actual angle. Measure by placing a straight edge or level on the keel (keeping it level with the ground) and measure up to the hull on one side.
