Plans to build the 23' Matagorda Flats Catamaran Boat

The Matagorda was designed a fishermen who wanted a very stable, reliable and flexible catamaran to get in and out of very shallow water bays, inlets and bayous common to the gulf coast of the United States. This is the perfect boat for protected waters. You can walk around, cast, and shift huge loads from side to side, all the while drawing very little water. It'll easily slide over water lillies, submerged logs and obstructions, and other sunken objects. There's a huge expanse of deck to set up a party, sunbathe, or carry a deckload of gear or camping equipment. If you are wanting a boat for these kinds of waters, this is a great choice. The self bailing deck means you can take all kinds of water over the side without swamping too.

You can shorten the Matagorda Flats Fishing Catamaran in 18" increments also, down to 18 feet. So it can be easily built as an 18', 19-1/2' 21' 22-1/2' or 24' hull, if you have limited space to keep your boat.

About Flats Fishing Boats

Krista "Redfish" Tucker, one of the premier flats fishing pros out there, shown with a Florida Keys redfish. The flats of the Gulf Coast, South Florida, the Southeastern United States, and Caribbean are prime spots for top notch fishing opportunities, and specialized flats fishing boats are just the ticket for these waters. My flats fishing boats are easy to build and operate as well or better than many of the specialized craft you can buy out there. They're a whole lot more economical too.
