First Look… New 2014 Maverick 17 HPX-V

The Maverick Mirage has certainly found it’s place as one of fishing history’s most popular V-bottom hull technical poling skiffs for open water crossings and shallow water fishing. It has evolved from Mirage 1 to Mirage II, Mirage HP, and Mirage HPX-V. After the introduction of the new 18 HPX-V, I guess it was only a matter of time before the public asked for the 17 HPX-V to get a facelift. The public asks and the industry gives…

Here’s a sneak peak of the layout on the new 2014 Maverick Mirage 17 HPX-V.



The following rumors say… lighter hull, more storage, larger casting deck, upgraded wiring schedule, rear hatches configured like the 18 HPX, big live well centered between the 2 rear hatches, and did away with the pop-up push pole holders that seem to be a costly repair when broken.

I hear that the actual skiff will be at the 2013 Miami International Boat Show. This is the one boat show I look forward to all year as all of the biggest names in shallow water skiffs on the market will be there. Come get your fix if you want an overload of skiff porn, eye candy, and a taste of one of the great things Miami has to offer. Looking forward to seeing you all at the boat show next weekend…
