With the 17 Carbon Elite, Yellowfin has built a new, cutting-edge version of its smallest skiff. The 17 CE features the same functional, ergonomic deck layout that made the original version popular with hardcore shallow-water anglers. However, the new hull introduces a deeper deadrise forward and sharper entry to facilitate big runs across choppy bays.
Yellowfin also built this new hull with a single-step running surface for increased fuel efficiency and performance. Its laminate schedule mirrors that found in Yellowfin’s 24 CE bay boat, which introduced the first-ever Kevlar, carbon fiber and E-glass weave, all vacuum-bagged with top quality vinylester resin.
The boat comes standard with an 8-foot Power-Pole shallow-water anchor and a jack plate. Notable options include additional or larger Power-Poles, a poling tower and a trolling motor.
