Mirage 17 HPX-V

More tournament wins and grand slams than any other.


Since it’s introduction, the 17 HPX-V has been the measuring stick for every technical poling skiff. Deadly quiet, precise on the pole and with an open water running capability that never ceases to amaze, this skiff is the choice of anglers who demand complete performance in the toughest and most technically challenging poling situations. Now with a new deck layout, the 17 HPX-V II has more storage that is even drier and easier to access. Plus, the hull is now lighter and even better balanced to perfectly match everything from a F70 to a F115. The best just got better.

Capt. Tim Mahaffey
'I've been running a 17 HPX-V since 1994 and I am currently in my 5th Mirage. I've never considered another skiff. The 17 is the perfect, all around technical poling skiff designed to win tournaments. Stealthy, fast, skinny, and dry, I can't imagine being able to accomplish the things we do - the long hard runs and the ability to sneak up on spooky fish in shallow water, in any other skiff."

Capt. Marshall Cutchin ( via emial after his first three days on his new 2013 17 HPX-V II)
"Just got back from 3 days of fishing. To say that I'm pleased with the boat is an understatement. Maverick has really upped the ante on fit and finish, deck and storage layout, and performance. Of all the Mirage lines I have owned, this is by far my favorite. The boat just rides so "cushy" and hums like a jetliner with that 70 hung on the back. I couldn't be more pleased. More when we have a chance to talk."

Honson Lau
""I have spent my first 2 weekends on my new HPX-VII in the company of epic fishing. We fished in both calm and rough seas, big winds, slicked conditions, both shallow and deep... basically all the conditions I would encounter. The HPX-VII does everything wonderfully. This is by far the best poling skiff on the market."
