This 20' Cockrell Skiff Down-east style skiff is composite built and powered by the reliable Yamaha Four Stroke EFI F50TLR with electric key start, power trim & tilt, and variable rpm button adjustment for trolling mode all incorporated in Yamaha's Multi Function Tiller Arm, and freshwater wash-down adapter on motor. This clean boat is in great running order and is very aggressively priced. This is a one owner boat and motor. The motor was originally sold here at Ocean House Marina.
PVC boats offer the easy care of a fiberglass boat, with the durability and handling of wood. Unlike wood or fiberglass, this PVC material will not absorb water or split. These boats can withstand the day in day out pounding of commercial usage.
New Aluminum I Beam Trailers with Poly Slides are in-stock for $1895. This boat does not have a trailer with it but can easily be packaged up with one of our in-stock trailers. Please call for more info or a showing.
"The Cockrells build this 20-foot, flat-bottom skiff with PVC panels rather than PVC planks. One-inch-thick panels were used for the bottom and sides, and 1¼-inch PVC in high-stress areas. All the pieces are cut out of panels 4-feet wide and 20-feet long. The boats have many of the structural features of standard wooden skiffs. There is a 1" x 3" PVC bilge clamp at the chine and a 1" x 3" clamp under the 6-inch wide washboards. They run the length of the boat. On the bottom are two 3" x 4" keels, 28-inches apart. The PVC keels are reinforced with several layers of mat and woven roving. “The double keels make it nice and stable, plus it gets up on those things and runs,” notes Andy. Four transverse stringers stiffen the hull. They are made up of four-pieces of PVC, laminated together with fiberglass and then screwed and glued to the floor. Two layers of 1-inch PVC laminated together make up the transom. “This stuff is strong but it’s limber so we had to use fiberglass to stiffen it up,” says Andy."
