2014 Simmons 18 Skiff in Sullivans Isl., South Carolina

Stock #100664

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

Handmade, own a piece of history, owner has invested over 14 months of labor into building this boat.

Back ground on the Simmons Sea Skiff and Simmons boats, this particular brand caught on, and during the late '40's and early '50's they evolved into the Simmons Sea skiff of today.

A primary change from the original rowing design was the addition of a motor well. Simmons' inspiration for the motorwell to house the outboard came from several sources, but paramount was the fact that standard outboards of the day had a 15" leg. With such a motor mounted on the transom, there was a great risk of waves breaking over the stern when running the local inlets.

Bringing the motor inboard allowed Simmons to retain the original high, raked transom, which created a huge amount of reserve buoyancy and made being overwhelmed by a following sea far less likely.

As a bonus, the motorwell allowed fishermen to run nets and lines directly over the transom and made shear-pin replacement and other underway maintenance chores less hazardous.

For nearly two decades Simmons and his son built boats as fast as they could. Although they didn't keep exact records of how many were built, the best estimate seems to be somewhere in the neighborhood of a thousand. In 1972, the Simmons boatshop closed abruptly after T.N. Jr. drowned in a boating accident. His dispirited father completed the remaining orders, then quit building boats altogether.

Although the Simmons shop has been closed for three decades, his boats are still a fairly common sight in the Carolinas. Their owners are die-hard fans, and for them nothing can match the performance and handling characteristics of a Simmons Sea Skiff.
