Fish/Cruise-ability The Skipjack 300 has 300 gallon fuel capacity, a 11' 2" beam
and weighs in at
16,000 Ibs. This configuration allows
you to run anywhere, anytime. This mid-size offshore sport
fisher is built to the standards of seasoned offshore seamen.
It's75 square feet of cockpit is laid out for the particular fisherman. A built in 30-gallon bait tank, 10 cu. ft. ice / fish box,
full transom door and white vinyl covered coaming pads round out the
perfect fishing machine.
Thetournament style layout provides a wrap-around helm for extensive
and updatable electronic equipment and one adjustable helm seat. The
companion seat can be laid flat to make a sleeper for 2.
The main salon is spacious and open. The salon is extremely functional -
signature. Full Corian counter top, Large stainless steel sink, a two-burner electric
stovetop, fully built in microwave, and large 3.1 cu-ft refrigerator demonstrate that this boat
is really designed and built to spend time offshore.
Features a double berth. Direct overhead lighting accentuates the
simplicity and warmth of the berth. A large translucent hatch offers
natural light and ventilation.
Fully enclosed compartment, shower,
vanity, mirror, stainless steel sink, electric head and hold handle make

A selection of twin engine packages are offered. From Yanmar to
Cummins and Volvo. Access to the engine room is from the cockpit by
way of a reliable electric hatch lift. Generator is
optional and is located aft of the engines.
The Skipjack 300 is engineered to make full use of its wide beam 11' 2"
and 30 ft length and is considered to have a larger salon and larger
cockpit than 32 ft boats.
Engine Room The engine hatch is powered electrically with a single jack-screw.
Push the button located behind a lockable panel and the hatch lifts up and
out of the way. SKIPJACK 300 has large sized water intakes, thru hulls,
valves and sea water strainers (very important). Large rudder boxes and
large size rudder shafts are standard for reliability and long life. The
SKIPJACK 300 is designed with good access to the bilge and bilge pumps.
Serviceability of the Yanmar: Everything can be reached. It is reasonable
to service the whole engine standing in there. We do not know of another
boat that's built of this size that has access all the way around the
engine. You've got access to the belts, adjust belts, check alternator,
access to the water, access to either one of the fuel water separators is
easy, great access, but are still tucked back and out of the way. The
large space between the engines allows you to crawl between the engines to
check mounts and check engine alignments. You can't do that with most
boats. Access to the injectors, access to the seawater strainers, access
to the heat exchanger, access to the stuffing box is very reasonable for
adjusting. On your hands an knees you can reach in here with a socket and
adjust the stuffing box. Access to the batteries is easy, lift out the
panels and all 3 batteries can be checked and serviced.
NOTE: This Power Report is designed to assist potential buyers in
evaluating vessels, power plants, and propulsion systems similar to those
being considered for purchase. This Power Report is NOT A WARRANTY OR
GUARANTEE OF ANY KIND. Individual vessel speeds are strongly influenced by
numerous factors including, but not being limited to, the engine output,
hull weight and shape, the rake of the hull while cruising and hull
contamination. Correct propeller selection, therefore, is extremely
critical and must be made in accordance with these various factors taking
into account all propeller specifics including the number of blades,
pitch, expanded area ratio, efficiency, dynamic balance, and the
installation position of the propeller.
The 30 ft. Skipjack is equipped with one of
the best flybridge layouts in the 30 foot range and is ideally suited
for fishing or coastal cruising. What separates this design over other
boats of the same size are the following: Generous unobstructed cockpit
(75 sq-ft), wide side decks, thigh high stainless steel hand rails, a
very comfortable flybridge with seating for 5 adults, a huge interior
with excellent visibility and superb ventilation. Accommodations for six
this is a perfect family cruiser or weekend fishing machine. Engine
access is simply located beneath the cockpit sole with the touch of a
button the entire deck raises to easily access all machinery.
The main salon is spacious, open and a functional Skipjack signature.
With forward facing windows and opening side windows there is more than
enough natural light and a spectacular view even from the inside. To
starboard is a raised L-shaped settee equipped with a high low table
that converts into a second sleeping arrangement suitable for two
adults. the galley is located to the port side forward of the head and
is furnished with Corian counter tops that offer clean, upscale
appearance with a deep polished stainless steel galley sink, tow burner
Princess electric stove top, built in microwave, and a Norcold
refrigerator / Freezer demonstrate that this boat is designed and built
to enhance your offshore travels.

accentuates the the simplicity and warmth of the berth. A large
translucent hatch offers natural light and ventilation. Beneath the
berth cushions are subdivided storage areas that offer generous space
for bulk goods.

mirror, stainless steel sink and electric toilet for extreme comfort
when offshore. With adequate lighting, ventilation and the ease of
