Boat Reviews By Owners
1999 -- 17' 0" HOLBY MARINE
Model: Bristol Skiff
Cockpit: This is a great little skiff, but has very little cockpit room because of the Molded in flotation seating that runs fore and aft for the entire length of the boat.
Construction: Fiberglass, very well construction. I have had this boat out of Montauk, and over to Block Island. Hull is green, very pleasing to the eye.
Handling: It is a flat bottom boat, and it feels the bumps in the road, however, it is very seaworthy for a 17' Skiff
Engine Room: 25hp Yamaha. Gets the boat up on plane nicely with 2 adults. The boat could use more HP if there are more than 2 on board.
General Comments: I really like the boat. I use it for Fishing, and for $6 in fuel I can cruise all day! I fish Montauk, and Long Island sound, Great for inshore fishing draws only 8 inches of water!
