Ankona Boats has come out with more options for their ShadowCast 18 skiff this week. The first debut of the new skiff options was this last weekend at Flint Creek Outfitters in Tampa, Fl. Ankona brought over a white on white ShadowCast 18 complete with finished liner and new rear deck hatch.
The finished liner is a nice touch and leaves the boat with a more refined look as opposed to the standard fiberglass floor with rolled nonskid. The new rear deck hatch with deep drain gutters is also a nice addition to the skiff, in the photos no hinges are added, but I’m sure that will be an option on future builds. Instead of putting a YETI cooler in the back seat, this looks like an awesome alternative for some semi-dry storage. The top of the new hatch reminds me of the top hatch from the center guide box Ankona uses, maybe it’s the same mold?
