SKIMMER 116

Okay, let’s just get it out there, the Skimmer 116 is a darn good looking sit on top. The lines split the difference between beautifully classic and cutting-edge modern with a finish so glossy you can see yourself in it. It’s a sit on top that begs to be put in the water, and when you get it there, the Skimmer 116 performs. With its touring style hull and refined scupper system, the Skimmer 116 skims across the water, cuts through waves, and slices through chop. Oh, and it weighs in at a slight 42 pounds, which raises the performance bar to a new level when you’re tossing this bad boy on your racks.
