Sundance FX17 Flicker

Skinny Water Performance With An Appealing Price Tag

FSF Staff November 30, 2009

In today’s day and age, flats skiff manufacturers are integrating nearly every aftermarket addition and performance enhancement to their designs in an effort to create first-rate platforms that stand out from the crowd. While the end results are no less then stunning, the price tags are often out of reach. Sundance Boats has a different approach and is the proud manufacturer of amazingly affordable shallow drafting skiffs that utilize proven construction techniques. A household name in the inshore market since 1993, Sundance strives to build performance driven skiffs with affordable sticker prices. In order to keep costs down without sacrificing performance, Sundance utilizes extremely light hulls and low horsepower engines to increase their power to weight ratio. Smaller engines weigh less, cost less and use less fuel, which translates to increased planing efficiency and performance. Sometimes smaller really is better.
