In 1989 Craig Johnson set out to create a new kind of flats skiff. The shallow water anglers of Southwest Florida needed a different kind of boat to replace the heavy and unwieldy skiffs made with chopped glass, woven materials, and wood coring. Craig drew from his background in model design and manufacturing in the automotive industry, combined them with his love of boating, and the Piranha flats skiff was born. His goal was to create a strong yet lightweight skiff that could support a shallower draft and use smaller, lighter motors.
Bluewater Bay Yachts is the dealer for Alabama and the Northwest territory of Florida. We currently have a Piranha Raso P140T and a Piranha Flats 1700 located at our facility Bluewater Bay Marina in Niceville, Florida. To schedule a showing please call our office at 850-897-4150 or complete the request for more information on our website.
The F1400 is the ultimate micro skiff. It’s economical to operate, taking advantage of its light weight and lower HP motors. With a ten degree deadrise and a V hull, which carries through to the transom, it’s able to cut through the chop to get you to the skinny water. You can leave your dock to fish your local waters or bring it aboard your mothership as a tender. At 14’, with 6’ of beam, it fits easily into a garage or on a smaller davit. It’ll get you in and out of the water with minimal effort and is light enough to be towed by a smaller vehicle. It’s a great boat to chase your favorite fish or play on the sandbar. It’s 14’ of pure fun!
The Raso P140T is a basic 14 foot poling skiff that floats in 4 inches of water. It is the perfect platform to get you on and off the water quickly and simply. The economical skiff gets you into the skinny water with money still in your pocket. With all fiberglass construction and simple splatter deck a quick wash down and the boat is ready to put away.
