- Dec 1, 2002I've seen boats like that in Florida. I think they are used for some
sort of commercial fishing. Keeps the rear deck clear for work.
It may have been what's called a "tunnel hull". Almost a catamaran
type of thing. Good for shallow water and stability, but you would
think the boat would handle funny with the moter up forward like that.
