Smoker Craft wanted to deliver a fishing boat that would also tip its hat to family activities like skiing. The 206 Viper does just that. This boat is definitely geared more toward fishing, yet it has the space, the safety, and the power to be a family outing boat. She has lots of room in the cockpit, and a bass boat style forward casting deck that is pre-rigged for a trolling motor. There is a convertible aft deck that can be set up for either family seating or for casting with a livewell and bait bucket. The goal was to deliver a boat that could perform with a 150 hp outboard and Smoker Craft has met that challenge.
