SKIFFS & CUSTOM DESIGN PROJECTS
IN ADDITION TO OUR FLEET OF STOCK HULL DESIGNS, SILVERBACK MARINE IS A POPULAR DESIGN + BUILD FIRM FOR THOSE LOOKING FOR A VERY SPECIFIC APPLICATION. PLEASE USE OUR QUOTE BUILDER TOOL TO GET STARTED!
PROJECT: SOUNDER 160 Tender
OWNER REQUIREMENTS: This tender to an ocean class explorer yacht is a 15' skiff featuring self bailing decks, davit lift points, push knees, yet a sporty look.
The 40HP and the deep vee hull offer a smooth ride at high speeds, yet a shallow enough draft to explore shallow bays, inlets, and rivers.
Tessilmare rub rails, track mount cargo tie downs, seat boxes, and ample storage space complement the hull for a practical, compact tender / explorer solution.
PROJECT: T/T SURFBIRD
OWNER REQUIREMENTS: This 18'X8 tender to an expedition yacht needed to be compact enough to fit next to a sister tender, but also large enough to transport an ATV when needed. In addition, the boat features interior bench seat tops that double as ATV ramps. The vessel also includes a custom internal frame stand, allowing the crew to store a small RIB inside the boat when underway.
The Outboard Jet coupled with the low draft hull offers high speeds and excellent maneuverability in bays and shallow rivers alike. The boat is used by charter guests for exploring rivers and salmon fishing in Alaska.
PROJECT: KENAI RIVER 18'
OWNER REQUIREMENTS: This 18' self-bailing boat features a delta pad, step chines, and center console with seat box. The 50 H.P. limit on the Kenai River in Alaska presented challenges on the ultimate blend of size & safety vs. horsepower. All in, this stable vessel offered a great platform with a top speed of 29MPH.
The boat is currently in use in the Kenai region of Alaska.
PROJECT: WDFW LANDING CRAFT CONCEPT
DESIGN REQUIREMENTS: The design specifications for this project called for an LOA of 22', beam of 8', step chines and delta pad, and an offset pilothouse to maximize space on the self-bailing deck.
PROJECT: WALKAROUND HOUSE OFFSHORE VESSEL
DESIGN REQUIREMENTS: The requirements for this design called for a walkaround house with ample room for 4 passengers. With an LOA of 24' and a beam of 9', this self-bailing design is a versatile alternative to traditional canvas top vessels.
PROJECT:10x20 OFFICE STUDIO
DESIGN REQUIREMENTS: This fun project called for a 6-person capacity floating conference room / studio with covered outdoor deck space. Our designers brought an innovative design solution featuring onboard pressurized freshwater supply for a wet bar, shore-power and independent electricity, and modern styling for an ideal "office with a view".
