Sportsman’s Drifter

Highly Maneuverable, Minimal Weight

The Sportsman’s Drifter is designed to meet the needs of anglers looking for a lightweight and stable solution to get to those hard to reach places. Designed for smaller waters, the Drifter is extremely maneuverable and easy to row. Due to the newly designed fly deck, anglers can comfortably fish out of the front while standing in the leg brace.

Two people can easily load the Sportsman’s Drifter into a pickup truck. While extremely lightweight, the Drifter offers many of the advantages of a full size drift boat. It’s an ideal boat for hunting and fishing where access is limited. The Drifter is constructed with the same attention to detail for which Hyde is known.

“It rowed wonderfully and the anchor systems were easy to use even with only one hand available…”

Just wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know the boat I purchased from you was just what I was looking for. It is a great boat for 2 guys, and I wouldn’t change a thing. It rowed wonderfully and the anchor systems were easy to use even with only one hand available (because I was playing a fish with the other hand). I am convinced I caught more fish because of the boat.
In one and a half days of fishing I hooked 39 steelhead! The boat was light enough for 2 guys to pick up and will be great for getting into some of the places I fish that are a short walk from the road or don’t have a boat ramp.Dave Pemberton
