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 even better balanced to perfectly match an F70 or VF90LA. The best just got better.

Get the skinny from those who know…

“To put my clients on fish 300 days a year, I need a skiff that gives me the flexibility to chase everything from belly-crawling redfish in the backcountry to super technical, double-digit bonefish on the oceanside, sometimes in the same day, without compromises or limits. The 17 HPX-V does just that. Whether it’s the unmatched ride, nimbleness on the pole or the super dry storage, there’s no better tool out there for hardcore shallow water fishing day in and day out.”

Capt. Jared Raskob, Islamorada, FL

“As a fishing guide in Islamorada, versatility is key to success. From fishing on the oceanside for Tarpon, fishing for Bonefish and Permit, to fishing in the shallow backcountry for Redfish and Snook, my 17v truly has no limits to what it can do. Once I get to where I’m fishing, I’m blown away with how well the skiff tracks and how light the 17v poles. Along with versatility and ease of poling, comes a comfortable, soft riding boat that makes driving around a pleasure for my clients and myself. There is no other boat I would want to step into every morning.”

Capt. Jayce Chamizo, Islamorada, FL

“As a fishing guide in the Florida Keys, It is my duty to put my clients in the best possible position to succeed.  That means using only the best skiff, and equipment available to me.  The Maverick 17 HPXV is that. Period. From poling to the skinny water Redfish of the Everglades, to fishing ocean side Tarpon, this skiff does it all.  It’s versatility and comfortable dry ride can not be matched.”

Capt. Mike Alfano, Islamorada, FL

I guide Louisiana in the winter for giant redfish, early season tarpon in the Keys, and summer tarpon in the Florida Panhandle and I do it all out of my 17 HPX-V with complete confidence and no compromises. For one boat to give me such a distinct advantage in all those diverse fisheries is simply incredible. My clients have never been more comfortable or happier fishing out of this skiff and neither have I.

Capt. Greg Dini, New Orleans, LA (Fish nomad and new Maverick devotee)

“I am in a unique position that allows me to guide and recreational fish all over South Florida’s inshore waters.  From the shallow regions and narrowest creeks in the Everglades to the most technical fishery in the translucent waters of Florida Keys; I demand a skiff that will do it all with no compromises.  I fish in all conditions from the calmest to the windiest of days having to cross big open bays to get to where big bonefish feed.  My 17 HPX-V gives me the ability to traverse these waters safely, comfortably, quickly, and quietly.  There is no compromise when I back off the throttle and pick up the push pole.  The poling dynamics of the HPX are unparalleled, as I can easily and quietly position the skiff around and in front of a group of bonefish for the right shot angle with ease.  In this technical game, it is vital to give your angler the best shot angle with great frequency.  Now take this legendary hull, shed 175lbs off the weight of the complete skiff with the carbon edition offered and you take all the attributes mentioned above and set the bar even higher.  The V in HPX-V should stand for “Versatility.”  Simply put, the 17 HPX-V carbon edition is my favorite skiff I have ever fished and guided out of, period.”

Capt. Honson Lau, Miami, FL (Bonefish junkie)
