Inshore Power Boat perfect for redfishing.

The IPB (Inshore Power Boat) is the perfect Redfish skiff in its price range.

For a long time flats anglers looking for a new boat were stuck with two basic price ranges.  For less than $10,000 you could outfit an aluminum johnboat or similar flat bottomed fiberglass skiff.

While, on the other hand, you could spend well over $20,000 for “high end” fiberglass skiffs incorporating the latest and greatest in materials and hull design.  The truth was and is, you can catch fish on either ends of the extreme.  It was just a matter of what you could put up with and how much you could afford.

IPB now gives anglers the alternative of customizing a true fiberglass flats skiff hull somewhere between $9 and $20K.  The IPB 16 that we tested rode well in a moderate chop with its shallow draft, had plenty of speed with a 50 hp Honda and allows anglers to completely customize the deck layout.  Is it a Caimen, Maverick or Hell’s Bay?  Honestly, it’s not, but it’s no johnboat or Carolina Skiff either.  The best thing about this new offering is that it provides a completely new entry level for anglers.


Tired of your flat bottomed aluminum or fiberglass skiff, but can’t afford to pay over $20,000 for a skiff?
