The ShadowCast 16 may be small, but it’s big on performance. You can fish and pole next to any high dollar skiff. Designed for a 9.9 to 20 hp engine, the ShadowCast can take you anywhere a kayak can can go, without the paddling.
Clean and efficient, the Ankona ShadowCast minimizes fuel usage so you’ll spend less on gas and more time on fishing. On-the-water GPS tests with a 9.9 hp have shown this skinny water boat running at an average WOT speed of 21.4 miles per hour.
Even in choppy water, you’ll enjoy a smooth ride with the forward “V” entry at the bow. The Ankona ShadowCast is a low-resonance no-slap hull, with a true 5-6 inch draft with 2 anglers plus gear. This boat tracks straight, and spins and stops effortlessly under a pole. The ShadowCast has a small tunnel for running in very shallow water.
The ShadowCast is surprisingly stable, a very important consideration in a shallow water poling skiff.
