The first Hell’s Bay boat designed around inshore and near-shore fishing, the Estero™, combines the classic features of a Hell’s Bay skiff with the capability to handle the big waters of the coast. Designed for performance and fishability, this Bay Boat offers a smooth dry ride, a silent hull, plenty of storage, and all the elements the Hell’s Bay skiffs feature. At a full 24 feet, 10 inches in length with a 8′ 6″ beam this boat can handle up to a 400 hp engine. While stable and fast, the Estero™ only draws 13″-15″ inches of water on the flats. After two years of development, Hell’s Bay Boatworks has produced a top of the line Bay Boat that any hardcore fishermen or weekend angler would love.
