If your passion is getting after redfish, and want into the skinniest water where your friends simply can't in their Pathfinders, Hewes, Beavertail Skiffs, Hells Bays and the rest,, you'll LOVE this rare bread Mangrove!
This is your chance to fish off something truly special.
Super clean lines and spartan no-nonsense design for the flats fishing purist.
Real head-turner; I get stopped everywhere I go asking about it.
Thought I'd keep it forever, but unfortunately we have small kids and it kills me, but I simply must sell.

This is a great 1988 Mangrove 17’ flats fishing boat, re-powered and completely re-done in 2009.
VERY shallow draft, realistically less than 6" and FAST! Cruises in the mid 30s mph all day, and tops out in the mid 40s mph (depending on conditions).
Always babied and very well maintained.
Great working condition.

Its super powered with a 2009 115 Yamaha [with only about 242 hours on it] and 101lb thrust MinnKota 36v trolling motor (three batteries, new in 2016).
Latham style marine controls, hydraulic steering, and trim-tabs give it great maneuverability with its ++ performance.
Casting platforming up front, poling platform in the back.
Hybrid 22' stiffy pole included too. Poles smooth and predictable, even with your buddy(ies) up front.
Running lights, under gunnel lights and bilge work great.

I had trailer made special in 2012 by AmeriTrail over in Kissimmee. They did a GREAT job! Its a double axel beauty and jigged up perfect. Pulls like a dream. Plus has hinged in the neck that breaks down total length (with motor trimmed down) to under 21', so even your small garage will fit it.

Willing for you to wet-test.. Kelly Park in NE Merritt Island closest and most convenient, but would meet at other locals within reason too.
