It's called a solo skiff, the cheaper slightly heavier rotomolded plastic version not the fiberglass gel coat model. It's about the same dimensions and weight as a Hobie PA, but with the ability to get up on plane and cruise at 15 to 20 knots. I really like not having a trailer it really grants more access to different bodies of water, like a kayak. Having a motor gives me the ability to cover 10 miles in just over 30 minutes and spend more time fishing. I wouldn't say it's the best of a boat and a kayak, I will say that is suits most of my style of fishing.
