The Whipray advantage

As the skiff that has set the shallow water angling standard for excellence and performance, the Whipray™ continues as the benchmark against which all other skiffs are measured. It was the advent of the Whipray™ that brought Hell’s Bay Boatworks to the forefront of the industry and sent the other manufacturers to the retooling shed. The Whipray™ poles effortlessly into the wind and against the tide while still maintaining the superior handling attributes necessary to stop, spin and control while poling in the shallowest circumstances. Sandy Moret describes his Whipray™ as “the finest bonefish skiff ever made.”
