The SageSport 160 is the next evolution in the design of sport boats. The SageSport 160 is a stable lightweight composite watercraft that can be efficiently paddled, rowed, stand-up paddled and motored with up to a 6HP short shaft outboard motor.
Robb White was a prolific boat builder around southern Georgia and the gulf coast of Florida from the 1950’s until his death in 2006. He was a designer, builder, fisherman, writer, and all-around waterman. Based upon Robb White’s unique Sport Boat, the SageSport 160 is the next evolution of the design.
With modern materials and build techniques, Robb’s hull design makes one of the most versatile small boats on the market today. The SageSport 160 is a stable lightweight composite watercraft that can be efficiently paddled, rowed, stand-up paddled and motored with up to a 6HP short shaft outboard motor.
Molded with a state-of-the-art resin infusion process, the SageSport 160 utilizes a fiberglass, carbon fiber and Kevlar composite for a very lightweight and robust boat. This strategic layup schedule allows us to virtually eliminates oil canning and flex in the hull form, allowing for a faster and stiffer boat that is still very light. Each SageSport 160 has positive floatation for safety, two fixed structural seats, maintenance-free high-density plastic motor pads, and a bow eye ready for trailering. Future options may include a portaging yoke, a center seat with oarlocks, drop-in sliding seat rowing, cooler mount, or a fishing insert.
The SageSport 160 will easily plane using the rated 6HP short shaft outboard motor and can cruise at 16 knots with two adults. Like its wooden predecessor, the SageSport 160 has a narrow entry, hollow deadrise, and a large flat stern with ample tumblehome. This adds up to a roomy boat with a dry forgiving ride that is stable enough to be used as a stand-up fishing platform. With a carrying capacity of 650 pounds, including passengers, the SageSport 160 is ready for almost anything. It is ideal for extended adventures, solo expeditions, and day trips with the whole family and it can easily meet the cargo hauling needs of backcountry sportsmen. The SageSport 160 is the versatile lightweight small boat to handle whatever you need!
