Maverick Mirage 18 HPX-V

As an industry leader in the shallow water skiff market, the latest design from Maverick Boat Company’s drawing board is sure to delight anglings most discriminating inshore clientele. Complementing the already impressive HPX lineup, the 18-foot HPX-V (for V-bottom as opposed to a tunnel or flat hull) offers a smooth ride in open water and zero hull slap when poling, trolling, or drifting. Incorporating Maverick’s proprietary Vacuum Assisted Resin Infusion System with carbon fiber and Kevlar laminate, anglers can expect a product of superior strength with lightweight attributes. Both a skinny water poling skiff, as well as a tournament equipped backcountry platform, Maverick has once again hit the nail on the head with the 18-foot HPX-V. If you’re a die-hard shallow water enthusiast then you owe it to yourself to check out this sweet skiff that’s a serious threat to all inshore game fish. The Maverick 18 HPX-V is a technical poling skiff that doubles as an open water bay boat. Being extremely light for its size (dry weight w/o engine is 965-pounds) it is faster, more efficient, and easier to pole than any other skiff in its class. When you purchase a Maverick you can guarantee a product built with the highest quality materials by craftsmen who have been building first class skiffs for decades. Sea trial an HPX-V today and make Maverick your boat company. Maverick Boat Company, 772.465.0631,
