LATEST DEALER: Blue Water Bay Marina

  Check out BOTE’s latest dealer. Blue Water Bay Marina in Niceville, FL . Brett and the guys at bluewater are the best to work with. They probably have the best location of any marina/restaraunt on the Choctawhatchee Bay. It makes for a beautiful location to enjoy a BOTE! Stop by the marina and check out a BOTE.  Launch from the sand beaches right beside the hangout LJ Schooners.  When you picture awesome sunsets, you probably have this place in mind!

Product Spotlight: The BOTE SUP Skiff

Fishing from a BOTE

Magda gives a brief description showing our paddleboard converting to the SUP Skiff.  The SUP Skiff is simply our normal Bote Board with all of our accessories mounted on it.  The Bote Board is the only paddleboard in the world that can transform into a miniature Boat!  Sorry about the sound, you’ll need to turn up your speakers a bit.

The BOTE SUP Skiff- Stand Up Paddle Board Fishing

Bote SUP Skiff (fishing paddleboard)

We now offer many of our “add-ons” in a package that we call the “SUP Skiff”.  We believe that all these accessories combined together complement each other perfectly to create a Stand Up Paddle Skiff or SUP Skiff.  Although we have offered these accessories in the past, we now offer them in a package to reduce the overall cost of the gear. 

The SUP Skiff includes: the BOTE fishing post, deck mounted rod holder (with option inserts available), 35qt YETI cooler (with lid pad, strap down kit, 2 gimbal mount rod holders and paddle clip).

Bote Board with Yeti Cooler

Check out the Bote Board rigged with the 35QT Yeti Cooler ( ).  The cooler can be attached to the front of the board or moved up under the leaning post and turned into a seat.  Bote only uses the best materials so it would make sense that a Bote Board should be rigged with the best coolers!

The video shows how stable the board is rigged with the cooler…even in chop, the wind was also blowing about 15mph.  Stay tuned for more!
