One of our latest builds has been for Captain Matt Kleckner of Stars & Stripes Charters. Matt is a local guide who wanted to focus on more inshore and back country fishing. He does a lot of work with veterans and is one himself. Matt chose a 22 foot Micro Draft in red with a custom tower and powered my a Mercury 115 ProXS. This is one awesome boat and Captain Matt has been running is almost daily since the paint was dry. Thanks again Matt for choosing Micro Draft and for your service!!
The newest boat in the Micro Draft Fleet currently belongs to Capt. Dencil Powell of Rajun Cajun Charters. Capt. Dencil has been fishing down south for many years and moved up here this fall. He has been a previous Micro Draft owner and wanted to get the latest and greatest for 2018. Dencil selected a MD22-Extreme in Sea Foam Green, with a Yamaha 90 SHO. He’s running a full NMEA package with Simrad NSS 9 EVO3, running FMT (Florida Marine Tracks) mapping, along with flood lights, underwater lights and wash down pump. It’s an awesome looking boat and performs perfectly on the water. Thanks again Capt. Dencil for your purchase.

Micro Draft Skiffs are being custom built to order right here in west central Florida. Imagine a 20’-22’ long, 8’ wide, 6” draft (at rest), 100% composite hull that weighs less than 1100 lbs (20ft Model).
Micro Draft hulls are custom built passionately by hand, one at a time. Any of our models can be finished and rigged completely to your specifications or delivered as a “Guide Ready” package. All Micro Draft hulls have a very unique designed raked tunnel hull system that actually creates lift under the hull and allows it to run where no other skiff can, with or without a tunnel hull. No longer is a jet foot needed to reach those hard to get to fishing holes. There is more room to fish, more angler capacity and all the standard features of many skiffs.
The Micro Draft “Guide Ready” is rigged standard with a 70hp four-stroke outboard engine mounted on a Bob's jack plate. While running, you can lift the prop completely above the planing surface of the boat to allow for near zero running draft. The best thing about a Micro Draft is that it will do all this while carrying 4 or more passengers. It has the tools of the trade too, including dual live wells with high speed pick-ups, insulated cooler, trolling motor with a 24-volt on board charging system, ample storage, and a custom aluminum trailer. The primary goal of the creator of Micro Draft was to engineer and build a shallow water skiff that provided unparalleled practical performance.
Micro Draft Skiffs the best shallow water skiffs were born in the back country creeks of Ozello, Florida. Guide owned and operated, the creator of Micro Draft knew what he was missing by not getting into the shallowest creeks in the area. Airboat trips through the mazes of mangrove creeks along the coast provided numerous glimpses of over-sized redfish and gator trout holding, untouched in these skinny creeks and back bays. Guiding from an airboat wasn’t even considered as an option. So the design and construction of the first generation of Micro Draft Skiffs began.
The Micro Draft models are 100% strong and lightweight composite technology. The interior on our models are designed to be very well thought out and a user friendly fishing skiff with all the features and rigging needed to have a great day on the water. You can even design and layout your Micro Draft Skiff completely to your own specifications if you prefer. It’s no wonder many professionals who make a living fishing the skinniest of waters already own a Micro Draft Skiff. They all claim it, but we can confirm it. The Micro Draft is a back country skiff that is second to none in performance.
