Bateau 17

The Bateau 17 is our entry level flat-bottom skiff. The boat is often used for solo fishing or getting out with your best buddy. In the Morehead City area, this Bateau is most often used in the sounds and tidal marshes, or trips to the Rock Jetty on calm days.

The small Bateau can be used to flounder gig at night, fish the bridge pilings and day markers on the waterways, or access the Hay Stacks, Cross Rock in the Newport River, Core Creek or the myriad of rivers in our area. There are similar destinations in many coastal areas, as well as lakes and some rivers – places that are easy to get to in a small stable skiff.
