Why Skeeter? Performance Fishing Boats
2016 Skeeter SX-240, Yamaha 300, Aluminum Trailer – Catch A Memory!
Skeeter has a renowned history of building performance fishing boats. Holmes Thurman build his first Skeeter boat, a 15’ bass boat made of marine plywood, in 1948. Leaders in bass boat design, the development of a saltwater high performance center console began in the 1990's. By the mid 90’s guides and tournament anglers welcomed the Bay Pro series of Skeeter boats. Using aerospace technology and computer aided design, Skeeter was one of the first builders of composite boats in the US. Strength, lighter weight, faster and better ride… performance fishing boats. Today the SX-240 is explained by the folks at Skeeter: “One moment you’re fishing on the coast, the next you’re trolling live bait rigs 10 miles offshore. This boat takes you wherever the fish are, which is where you need to be”
