When Piranha Boatworks envisioned a new model to add to their line they wanted something unlike anything on the market. The idea was to build a boat that had shallow water ability and poling characteristics. Simple, a technical skiff. But they also wanted something more inherently stable than your average micro skiff. Something that could carry three big guys and run across big water or anchor on an Oceanside flat in heavy wind while not constantly plunging into each wave, soaking everyone on board. A bay boat? No, not a flats boat, not a bay boat, something in the middle. Sounds like a few boats I know of already so it was going to take a design that required some out of the box thinking to make it unique. .
The Magro offers abundant deck space as originally imagined with wide gunnels all around and a roomy forward casting deck. The forward storage compartment below deck is large enough to accommodate your trolling motor batteries and a 27-gallon fuel tank with plenty of room to spare for storing gear. The model tested included an Ulterra/iPilot trolling motor that left plenty of room to fish two anglers around the foredeck. Three across seating at the helm and a large forward single seat on the console with an insulated drink cooler below (also plumbed as a fourth baitwell), framed the center console. The rear casting deck offers three live wells across and a very roomy access point into the bilge area to service systems below deck. Looking down over the rear deck is one of the largest poling platforms available. Piranha applies the “anything worth doing is worth overdoing” principle when they build a platform without a doubt.
The design produced a hull that can manage speeds of close to 50 mph in open water and the buoyancy and improved tracking while poling through the shallow water. The lower reverse and upper spray chines offer an extremely dry ride. The sharp entry of the bow makes for a smooth ride in open bays and waterways. This is the coming revolution in shallow water site fishing. Get predacious in new Magro P180 skiff.
