East Cape Vantage Skiff - 19'2"

Captain Craig Clopper of Goliath Fishing Charters Key West, runs all of his Lower Keys backcountry fishing charters out of his custom East Cape Vantage flats skiff.

The East Cape Vantage is a big-water flats boat designed for getting you to your fishing destination fast, while staying dry. The Vantage is 19 feet, 2 inches in length and has a 79-inch beam and only drafts 7-9” of water!

Quite possibly the largest, most comfortable flats boat in the Lower Florida Keys, the versatility of this boat is amazing. It can silently stalk tarpon, bonefish and permit in inches of water while having the capability of handling rough seas when it gets sporty out there.
