Mirage 17 HPX-S

The most complete super skinny water tool ever developed.



The revolutionary skiff that has cracked the code of sacrificing running comfort, range and poling performance for the sake of getting super shallow. The 17 HPX-S’s one of a kind hull combines the knowledge of the most experienced skiff designing team in the business, the latest in CAD designed naval architecture, and advanced aeronautic technologies. The result is a skiff that floats in less than 6″ inches of water, drives like a sports car while keeping its occupants exceptionally dry and comfortable, and poles with precision and complete stealth. Sounds too good to be true? It was until now.

  • Testimonials

Captain Owen Plair- 1 Year Review. Beaufort, SC
What I’ve realized about this boat is that when it comes to poling and technical sight fishing, but still having the room, and comfort of a bigger skiff, there is absolutely no other skiff on the market that compares to the HPX-S. It brings a new meaning to technical skiff and has changed the flats boat market forever. Click here to read more...
