Performance Edition


The Islamorada 18 Performance Edition is the skiff that caught the entire skiff industry asleep at the helm. The middle child of the Chittum Skiff family, the Performance Edition has received the same upbringing, accolades and attention to detail as the Islamorada 18 Legacy – with minor modifications designed to put it in the hands of more anglers.
