The 18′ Backcountry Pro known affectionately in the Florida Keys as “The Pride”, with its Deep V hull, is the most versatile backcountry boat in the world. It rides better than many fishing boats over 20′ and yet drafts 10” of water. The Everglades Park Rangers comfortably run their 18′ Backcountry Pro’s over 55mph in a 3′ chop!

Tarpon guides from Jupiter to Key West have been recommending the 18′ Backcountry Pro for well over 40 years. Its stability in open bays and inlets allows anglers to walk around the gunnels easily. Fishermen will appreciate being able to pole the flats in the morning, and pick up the family to water ski or dive the patch reefs in the afternoon.

The 18' Backcountry was designed to be the best all-around near shore boat, and has won its place in the Flats Boat Hall of Fame.
