Carolina Skiff released its Fun Chaser line of high-performance fiberglass deckboats.

The innovative hybrids were first seen last year at the Miami International Boat Show. They are currently available in 19- and 22-foot lengths in the Cruiser and Fish Series. Further line expansions are planned in the near future.

“When people first see the Fun Chaser line, they assume they’re pontoon boats,” Carolina Skiff CEO Joe Kirkland said in a statement. “But these luxurious and roomy pontoon-like decks are actually built on a high-performance mono V-hull. Their ingenious design will enable families to enjoy all the space and luxury of a traditional pontoon boat while still having the power needed to pull skiers and tubers with ease. It’s really the best of both worlds.”

Kirkland also said that because of the Fun Chaser’s fiberglass construction and stainless steel railings, gates and fixtures, owners will be able to use the boat in fresh water and saltwater.
