In 1989 Craig Johnson set out to create a new kind of flats skiff. The shallow water anglers of Southwest Florida needed a different kind of boat to replace the heavy and unwieldy skiffs made with chopped glass, woven materials, and wood coring. Craig drew from his background in model design and manufacturing in the automotive industry, combined them with his love of boating, and the Piranha flats skiff was born. His goal was to create a strong yet lightweight skiff that could support a shallower draft and use smaller, lighter motors.
In 2015 Piranha moved to Sanford, Florida. Our new location allows us to stay close to the plentiful fisheries of Florida. In central Florida we are also able to support our customer base in the Carolinas, the Gulf Coast states, and Texas.
