If you want a true flats boat, look at a Gheenoe. Great flats boat, floats in inches of water and a 16 footer is usually powered by 15. Mine ran at 32 mph on the gps.

Look at the Key West 1720. Floats in < 1' of water fully loaded with enough dead rise and v in the hull to cut through the chop. They are unsinkable and have a self bailing design. From the grass flats to the gulf of Mexico.

I bought my son a used Key West 1720 last year. Very nice boat and built good. It's a 1996 and everything works but the factory wiring is not tinned wire. They come pre wired for a 12v trolling motor. Not much room for extra batteries. You also have to put ping pong ball scuppers on them b/c the transom sits very low.

I know there is a for sale section but my cousin won in a redfish tournament a 2011 or 2012 Ranger 16ft Banshee Extreme with a Yamaha 60hp 4-stroke, Power Pole, Humminbird GPS/Fishfinder, Minnkota trolling motor and I think he wants $19k for it. It's brand new and never been in the water. He is sponsored by Ranger and just turned in his Cayman for a new boat. From what I've seen these look pretty cool with the raised seating but I needed room for 4 so I passed on it. If anyone's interested I'll give you his number.
