The Industry Leader in Flats Skiff Quality and Design Excellence
In 1980, Action Craft began a relentless pursuit to build the world's finest
coastal and inshore fishing machines. For nearly 20 years Action Craft has established
a proven reputation for building the best-designed skiffs and the highest quality
in the industry today.
Action Craft has maintained its reputation because
we put more into building our boats than the competition. For example: Action
Craft uses a specially formulated fiberglass resin (vinyl ester resin), as a
barrier coat just beneath the gel coat finish. This greatly reduces the chance
of developing hull gel coat blistering from moisture penetration. Its
special care like this that makes owning an Action Craft not only pleasurable
but a sound investment.
From research and development, to quality of materials,
to features, to hand craftsmanship Action Crafts are built durable. This means
they maintain a much higher resale value, actually costing less to own in the
Dont get fooled by boats that look like ours.
Quality is not always visible to the naked eye.
Action Craft Comfort and Versatility
An Action Craft is the most comfortable and versatile
flats skiff you can buy. Without any compromise in fishability, they also make
great family runabouts, ski boats, and even yacht tenders. We pioneered the
use of the in-cockpit bench seat with fold-down cushioned back rest which provides
more safety and greater comfort than any other skiffs. Whether you're a hard-core
fisherman, or the weekend warrior that takes the family along, an Action Craft
does it all.
High Performance Hull Design
Action Craft's high performance hulls incorporate
a modified deep-V design, a wide beam, strong lightweight construction, and
our exclusive Pocket Drive®. With this design combination, we've succeeded in
delivering you a softer, smoother, and drier ride in rough choppy waters and
providing extremely shallow draft at the same time.
Our exclusive Pocket Drive® decreases the running
draft by directing water up to the propeller. With our taller transom, we reduce
the amount of motor that hangs below the bottom of the boat, thereby increasing
In addition to those models equipped with Qui/Dry
hulls, all Action Craft hull's have quiet stalking rounded chines to reduce
hull slap, which is known to spook fish. With this design, you are likely to
have more fish within casting range of your Action Craft.
Fish don't follow channel markers, so we don't think
a fisherman should have to either. That is why we pioneered Pocket Drive, our
exclusive stern design that allows our boats to run in only eight inches of
