Bateau 176 SportThe Bateau 17 is our entry level flat-bottom skiff. The boat is often used for solo fishing or getting out with your best buddy. In the Morehead City area, this Bateau is most often used in the sounds and tidal marshes, or trips to the Rock Jetty on calm days.

The small Bateau can be used to flounder gig at night, fish the bridge pilings and day markers on the water ways, or access the Hay Stacks, Cross Rock in the Newport River, Core Creek or the myriad of rivers in our area. There are similar destinations at all the other coastal areas up and down the coast - places that are easy to get to in a small skiff.
