Island Hopper 30

Island Hopper 30

The Island Hopper 30 was originally developed over 3-1/2 decades ago to fill the need for a small, versatile, commercial grade vessel with strength, durability and a long working life that could be bought for, and maintained at, a reasonable cost. Today it remains as true to those original goals as the day the first Island Hopper was built.

Individually built to order using quality commercial grade components, entirely hand-laid including a solid fiberglass hull with no coring, rugged durability and long life are the trademarks of Island Hoppers everywhere.

Over the years Island Hoppers have developed a devout following far beyond what the original developer foresaw. Fishing captains depend on Island Hoppers worldwide and the same is true for the dive, parasail, ferry and numerous other water-oriented businesses. With literally hundreds of Island Hoppers in service worldwide it has established itself as one of the premier workboats in use today.

While the Island Hopper will continue to evolve with the times and Sea Hawk Industries, Inc. will continue to improve the quality and usability of the boat, the philosophy remains the same; build a strong, durable, dependable boat that is economical to own and operate and whose working life is measured not in years, but decades.
