Fish and Ski
Offered by several aluminum boat manufacturers and by a few fibreglass boat manufacturers, this design is intended to offer those amenities necessary to satisfy the desire both the fishing and watersport enthusiast in one package.
Showing: Fish and Ski Boats
All fish and ski boats are outboard powered bowrider-type designs and generally range from fifteen to eighteen feet. The aluminum manufacturer will generally select one of its deeper-vee walk-thru windshield dual console multi-species fishing designs with available power up to maybe one hundred or so horsepower and add a package which would include padded seat cushions for the raised bow and perhaps the stern deck area (if not already so equipped) plus, a removable waterski tow bar and perhaps a stern swim platform with boarding ladder perhaps including a portable cooler in order to accommodate family-type watersport activities. The fibreglass manufacturer will generally take one of its bowrider designs with removable bow cushions, add a bow insert with a raised fishing seat, offer a stern bench seat which converts to a stern fishing platform and add a raised fishing seat for that area plus perhaps fishing rod holders and rod storage plus perhaps a recirculating livewell and fishboxes to accommodate fishing activities. Thus this design offers the built-in flexibility to convert readily from a fishing oriented boat to a family cruising and watersport oriented boat.
