I can't say enough about Aeon Marine/Beavertail Skiffs and especially its owners Will and Elizabeth Leslie. Building this Beavertail with them was a blast and I wish I could order another one just because they made the process so effortless and enjoyable.
Update: Since I first wrote this post a few years ago there have been two new additions to the Beavertail lineup, staring with the BT Strike which is pictured below and launched in late 2012. In less than a year this 17'6" hull has become one of the best selling technical skiffs on the market with a base price of just $26,000. You can read a full review of it here.
The latest Beavertail is the 16'8" Micro, which began its development right after the launch of the Strike. This boat was a direct response to all the customers who wanted a stripped down poling skiff at an entry level price. With a 30hp tiller and trailer, 2014 Micro is only $18,000. You can see some more photos of this boat here.
