About the Challenger

The Legacy utilizes the highest quality materials including 4 types of carbon fiber and a special high density racing core to give the best possible weight to strength ratios in the best design in the flats boat world.

This skiff is truly the finest boat that can be built today, but there is a downside. In this case, it is the expense and the difficulty of this type of construction. The materials cost is far greater than conventional boat building material and the craftsman doing this type of construction have to be highly trained and skilled. It takes a lot more time to build this way; the process simply cannot be rushed. We believe the end result is well worth it. For professional guides, owners of sportfish boats with a skiff on the bow and serious anglers worldwide, Chittum Skiffs has taken the state of the art of the shallow water skiff to the highest level possible.
