Bonefish 22 Overview

The Bonefish 22 is more than just a bay boat, it’s a hybrid design allowing for offshore and inshore adventures. With a shallow draft of less than 8” on plane and the steep rise of the bow, if you find it too rough to fish offshore simply head for the backwaters and fish the flats. Either way, you won’t be disappointed about spending all day on the water. Visit us at Abaco Skiff and check out our bonefish boats for sale today!

The most fuel-efficient bay boat / hybrid
on the market

The interior was designed for fisherman and their families with large fore and aft decks, comfortable seating for making long runs and easy to clean custom nonskid finish on the decks. Cross open bays, run the flats or venture out of the inlets to the reefs and wrecks. The Bonefish 22 was designed to get you there and back in comfort. It’s impressive speed and low horsepower requirement is a testament to it’s efficient hull design. A smooth, dry ride in rough water is achieved with a unique bottom design proprietary to Abaco Skiff. If you want a custom built boat that won’t break the bank the Bonefish 22 is the clear choice.

Panga (Boat)

The Panga is a type of modest-sized, open, outboard-powered, fishing boat common throughout much of the developing world, including Central America, the Caribbean, parts of Africa, the Middle East, and much of Asia. Panga boats are commonly just a hull with a rough finished interior, powered with low to mid horsepower outboard motors. Abaco Skiff boats are different; they have been designed by Andros from concept to completion and are unique purpose-built boats, designed with a highly finished interior while sporting higher horsepower and sophisticated electronics if desired. Additionally, 100% of the Abaco Skiff boat line is built on premises in a 15,000 sq./ft. facility in North Sarasota, Florida.” The next sentence should be replaced with “From lamination and metal fabrication to the cushion and canvas; each boat is built by hand with quality and care by skilled craftsman.
