The ultimate skinny water redfish skiff.

Mirage 17 HPX Tunnel

Takes you to places others simply can’t reach.



With its unique tunnel hull configuration and elevated engine mounting, the 17 Mirage HPX Tunnel runs, floats and poles in water too shallow for most game fish.

This boat is designed for anglers that run long distances, fish and have to “get up and run” in extremely shallow water.

Unlike many competitive boats that are so-called “super shallow” in part because they are underpowered, the 17 Mirage HPX Tunnel has the range and power to actually get you there, quickly and in comfort.

Bruce Jefferis, Galveston Bay to South Padre, TX - land of lots of hard bottom, little water and where you wade to redfish (unless you own an HPX-T)
I've owned Maverick HPX-T skiffs for ten years, including the new generation. It's simply a fantastic boat for anyone seeking the ultimate poling skiff with super shallow running and poling capability. The new rear deck and hatch layout makes the great boat even better, with more storage and better access. I also love the factory installed jackplate for the extra versatility it provides. Pair it up with Yamaha's F70, and you're good to go -- anywhere!
