MINIMALIST TUNNEL SKIFF DESIGNED TO POLE IN NOTHING AND RUN IN LESS
Designed from day one as a tunnel hull — rather than adapted tunnel from an existing design — the ShadowCast 18 runs shallow right right out of the box without the need for jackplates or other modifications. With a pronounced "V" entry, the Shadowcast 18 offers a surprisingly smooth ride in chop, and — most importantly — world-class poling performance.
The ShadowCast 18 has an aggressive tunnel design, positioning the propeller shaft just above the hull bottom for very shallow running. The Shadowcast poles and runs shallow but also offers greater carrying capacity and the ability to "span" larger chop for a smoother ride home on breezy afternoons. With a 30 hp, the 18 tops out around 29 mph.
