A new level of performance is now at your command with the advanced design of the Dusky 18R flats boat hull. Her razor sharp entry provides unsurpassed rough-water handling. Superior weight reductions let you power your boat with less horsepower than conventional flats boats while still realizing amazing performance numbers. Less motor equals less weight and less fuel expenditure. That means lower running costs for you. Her wide stance makes her amazingly stable at rest and her chine line keeps everyone dry when on the go.
Built around an all-composite structure, the Dusky 18R flats boat is a sub-1000 pound hull with one of the most spacious and customizable deck layouts available today. When you buy a boat from the factory, you can set your vessel up the way you want to. Her totally flush non-skid deck allows for 180 degrees of unobstructed fishing. Customize the 18R flats boat to suit your fishing requirements; from more storage to multiple bait tank configurations to poling platforms. We build to your order.
You bought a flats boat, so why do the payments feel like you purchased another house? Forget astronomical pricing from dealerships, Dusky 18R is a complete shallow water boat at factory direct pricing. Why spend twice or even three times as much for another boat that won't do the job half as well? Dusky 18R is the new equation in flats boat fishing.
Available with a wide variety of outboard motors (including Suzuki and Evinrude) to let you get the performance you need at a price you can afford.
