Who We Are

Handcrafted Quality from the Heart of Miami

South Dade Skiffs began in 2014 in a backyard in Miami, where founder Louis Perrero built the first mold and produced the initial two hulls. These hulls were tested on the waters of Biscayne Bay, reflecting Louis’s vision of creating affordable boats that didn’t require a large engine but could still navigate the bay’s fair weather conditions with ease.

At South Dade Skiff, we pride ourselves on being a small operation that values quality and craftsmanship above all else. Each boat is built by hand, ensuring the highest standards and attention to detail. Our mission is to provide exceptional, affordable boats that offer reliable performance, making the joy of boating accessible to all.
