17′ Jersey Skiff Sailboat

This classic sailing skiff features a sliding rowing seat, storage hatches, and more!

In-Stock Special


This 17′ Jersey Skiff sailboat is brand new and ready to sail! This classic design from the Jersey Shore offers excellent performance and and easy handling under row or sail. It was designed in the mid-1800’s to be beach-launched and rowed through surf for rescue and salvage work. This required a boat that was stable and fast, had a high carrying capacity, and was easy to manage singlehanded — all great features for the modern recreational boater.

This in-stock Jersey Skiff in classic white has an easy-care grey interior and low-maintenance rubrail trim. It has been upgraded with our side-storage hatches to keep your belongings dry, roller furling genoa for top-notch sailing performance, a canvas storage cover, and a stainless steel keel strip to protect the keel during beaching.
