The new Ankona Copperhead is faster, smoother and better than ever with a large, uncluttered deck and a comfy cockpit.
Twin stern hatches in the Tournament Edition with the port side a standard 20 gal live well ready for plumbing. All hatches have tight tolerances with flat gasketing underneath for a really dry compartment. Speaking of compartments, inside of each have smooth molded structural liners for a great finish and helped us keep the skiff at its same poling draft.
New hull mods include a new drop nose sharp V to give a really smooth ride for a skiff in this class. Sharp edges on the bottom chines and stern edges (along with other secrets) make the hull more efficient. It planes quicker, turns tighter and is about 10% faster at full throttle with 30 hp.
Each Copperhead is built with premium materials featuring Iso/Npg gelcoats, high strength Iso blend resins and bi-axial / tri-axial fabrics. PRISMA preform stringer system, honeycomb core in deck and floor with high density expanded PVC board used in transom and high stress deck ares result in an extremely strong but lightweight skiff.
