Boat Reviews By Owners

2000 -- 18' 9" MARITIME SKIFF

Model: 1890

Cockpit: The boat is all cockpit. A small raised platform at the bow with a locker underneath, then your choice of consoles, seats, leaning posts that bolt onto the sole. It is self-draining and does not need a bilge pump. 26 gal gas tank is under the console.

Cabin: The company provides canvas options and T tops. I chose a dodger with a plastic bow window for some wind and sun protection.

Construction: This is a simple machine. Cleaning and maintenace is easy. Hull shape features a very full bow that sheds spray well- these are dry boats. The underbody is a moderate deadrise combined with strakes and lifting surfaces for efficient use of low power. There is no hull liner, which furthers the boat's simplicity. The sheer is flat, not attractive to my eye. The various optional consoles and seats could be a weight or two beefier, but are well finished and are right for what these boats are intended for.

Handling: Despite the low deadrise, the boat pounds only in a chop. Gets up on plane nicely. Solid and stable ride. I run a 3 cyl. 50 hp Tohatsu and with 2 adults and 2 teenagers we top out at 24 mph, plenty fast for my needs.

Engine Room: My 50 hp works quite fine. The company seems to prefer a 70 to a 90 hp for this model.

General Comments: I like this boat a lot. My uses are simple- island hopping, coastal fishing, day trips. Trailers well. The company president himself answered my questions in selection and rigging. It is well-priced among CCs, but again, is simpler than most.
