Hell’s Bay Neptune

It’s an undeniable fact that Hell’s Bay is committed to providing a first-class product that’s able to withstand the test of time. The skilled craftsmen that make anglers’ dreams come true clearly focus their efforts on cutting edge designs and quality construction techniques utilizing only the finest materials. In addition, during an economic downfall when manufacturers have been forced to shutdown or slow production, Hell’s Bay Boatworks continues to expand its array of impeccable skiffs that offer the ultimate in performance, comfort and fishability. Introducing their largest skiff to date, the Neptune will, without a doubt, impress the most discerning shallow water anglers. Neptune was the Roman god of the sea and this tricked out platform is capable of living up to—and surpassing—its legend as king. A big water flats boat designed for large engines in the 115 to 150 HP range, this speed demon is capable of reaching an incredible 60 mph! Sure to be popular among professional tarpon and redfish anglers where speed is crucial, this thoroughbred will be able to perform with bigger bay boats sporting larger powerhouses, while retaining incredible shallow water performance attributes. One thing is for certain; Hell’s Bay continues to push the envelope with an ideal skiff for every shallow water fishery. Hell’s Bay Boatworks, 321.383.8223,
