To all of our Bankes Boats Customers and Friends,

We are officially announcing our retirement

I started building Skiffs for the hunting clubs around Long Point Bay in 1968 and it has been very rewarding to see our family business prosper and grow into the Bankes Boats line of hunting boats we have today. We sincerely want to thank our customers, friends and business partners for all your support and loyalty to our products over the years. While it is difficult to stop doing something you love to do, we hope to find some one with the passion to carry on production of our line of boats. Please contact us by phone or email if you have an interest in discussing the future production of the boats.

Open Water Duck Boats - Layout Boats - Sneak Boats - Sculling Boats

21' Goliath Open Water Duck Boat
The Ultimate Duck Boat has arrived on the market. Whether you’re a guide, outfitter, or just someone that has a need to hunt 5 or more guys you’re going to want to check this boat out. At 21' 6" long by 7 1/2' wide it truly is a Goliath. Decades ahead of the competition The Goliath is all hand laid fiberglass with a Kevlar re-enforced bow, and it contains no wood to rot or maintain. Being the only Duck Boat on the market to utilize true three piece construction ensures you a long maintenance free lifetime. The interior of the boat is molded the same way as the hull is, then permanently fiber glassed together and injected with foam flotation. We are the only duck boat company on the market today to use this type of technology. This ensures you not only a quite, warm ride, but a truly safe one as well. Speaking of safety, The Goliath utilizes the same “ RTC “ ( Reverse Tunnel Chine ) technology as the rest of our line up, giving you a smooth dry ride with no bone jarring pounding like some other boats ! All of this and it still only draws 6" - 8" of water. The inside of the boat is configured with decoy shelves that run down the entire length of the cockpit, upper shelves for all your smaller items, dry storage under the front deck, a side mounted consol with dry storage inside of it, and a permanently mounted 25 Gallon fuel tank with deck fill & gauge. The boat also comes standard with dual battery boxes, complete with a selector switch, Decoy Curtains, Rack and Pinion Steering, 2000 GPH Bilge Pump, Navigation Lights, Interior Lights, 12 Volt Receptacle, and a bilge blower to exhaust any fumes before you start the boat. All of this is controlled by dual electrical panels placed at your fingertips on the consol. We also designed a blind and had it tailor made just for this boat, ensuring a proper fit. The blind can be set up in numerous different configurations giving you the flexibility to change and adjust to the weather conditions or the birds. It even comes with a rain roof, for those really nasty days. We have constructed the blind entirely of 1000 Denier Cordura Nylon with 6061 Aircraft grade aluminum support bars, and are offering it to you in either Mossy Oak Shadow Grass, or Military Style camo painted to match your boat. It quickly & easily attaches around the outside of the boat and can be left on the boat while you pick up your decoys, chase cripples, or even strapped down and left on for transport. As you may well imagine a boat of this magnitude can be equipped with a wide array of options, and we are more than happy to accommodate any specific needs you may have. Call today to find out how we can help you.
