Roomy, Sporty & Fun: Find the Right Carolina Skiff DLV Model for You

by Dana Koman | May 02, 2019

Whether flats fishing or exploring deeper waters, the Carolina Skiff DLV Series comes in five different lengths – providing anglers and cruisers alike a variety of options for Family, Fishing and Fun!

What makes the DLV Series special is its Tri-V hull design, a unique shape that creates a smooth, dry ride with outstanding performance. Every DLV model comes standard with a wide 96-inch beam, allowing for wide, open decks and ample storage.

178 DLV

The 178 DLV, which is 17-feet long and a 6-inch draft, can safely accommodate a maximum of nine people. Standard features include, but are not limited to, full instrumentation for speed, fuel, volt and tachometer, a quick-disconnect windshield, six flush-mounted rod holders, a console cushion set and more.

The rear deck comes outfitted with two jump seats and lockable starboard lids, and the cockpit seating includes a stainless-steel cooler frame with a 70-quart removable cooler.

Boaters can opt for more enhanced features, such as front and read deck padded swivel seats, console bait well with LED lighting and comfortable four-piece bow cushion set.

At 19-feet long, the 198 DLV can safely accommodate a maximum of 10 people. This model has all of the same great standard features as the 178 DLV, including a swim platform, a 500-gallon bilge pump and premium rigid rub rail with a chrome insert.

Upgrade options include, but are not limited to, a power grip stainless-steel steering wheel, comfortable three-piece bow cushion set and stainless-steel bow and transom rail sets.
