Fishing’s Future

Orvis collaborates to benefit conservation of Florida’s fisheries


Sales of a new skiff package from Orvis and Hell’s Bay Boatworks will help benefit the conservation of Florida’s fisheries.

The two companies have collaborated on the design of the project– called the Orvis Edition Package – that can be added to any of Hell’s Bay Boatworks’ skiffs. Every purchase of the package includes a donation to selected conservation partners working to promote clean water and protect the Sunshine State’s fisheries.

“This partnership not only signifies a common love for getting out on the water, but a passion for craft and attention to detail that, when combined, create incredible experiences,” said Orvis President Simon Perkins.

“Orvis and Hell’s Bay Boatworks’ shared commitment to the natural world and desire to promote conservation of our coastal waterways further reinforces the natural fit of the partnership and mutual dedication to protect what we love.”

Design work for the project started in 2020 with Perkins and Hell’s Bay Boatworks’ Captain Chris Peterson collaborating on design details and components. The design takes style cues from Orvis brand and product logos and features high-end components such as full carbon decks and SeaDek traction.

The package will be available for five of Hell’s Bay Boatworks’ popular flats boats, and also includes an Orvis Helios 3 Rod, an Orvis Mirage Reel and an Orvis Boat Bag.

Hell’s Bay Boatworks is based in Titusville, Florida. Orvis is headquartered in Manchester, Vermont.
