Discover the trailblazing features of the all new Bonafide SKF117
We've packed the SKF117 with features designed to give you a better fishing experience, from skeg to hull and everything in between. With our spring-loaded skeg system, you control how your kayak moves, allowing you to get the most out of your vessel no matter the waterways you're fishing.
Our unique hull design blends the stability and efficiency of a catamaran with the maneuverability of a traditional paddleboard to give you greater control, and confidence, on the water. But we didn't stop there. The SKF117 is designed to be highly customizable, with tons of opportunities to rig your vessel just the way you want it. The SKF117 is also Bonafide Sidekick compatible.
No matter where you fish or how, with the SKF117 on your side, you just can't miss.
Our big open deck allows you to make the vessel your own. Beginner and avid anglers alike will love the versatile fishing setups, seamlessly transitioning between a traditional sit on top kayak for hunting bass to a push pole platform for chasing fish through shallows. Looking forward to a low-key day on the water? This one-of-a-kind vessel easily converts into a floating platform, making it the perfect companion for a lazy day taking in the sights or paddling with family and friends.
Jam-packed with features designed to give you the perfect vessel for any setting, the SKF117 is exactly what your summer is missing.
Boasting a low profile as a kayak and ultra stability like a Sup. The wide open deck is perfect for summer outings and the low profile keeps you out of the wind.
For long days of kayaking, rest easy on our extremely popular HiRise Seating System, an innovative seating design that elevates your position for a more ergonomic, natural paddling posture and a better view. Translation? All day comfort for avid anglers and nature enthusiasts alike. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Our Boss Strap Paddle Management System allows you to quickly stow or retrieve your paddle without any hassle, and the seamlessly integrated underseat compartment ensures maximum storage capacity for all your gear.
With extra touches like cup holders, trays, carrying handles, and more, we've designed the SKF117 to give you the best kayak experience for a summer that can’t be beat.
