You Decide: Sundance CCR or DX?

New Sundance Anyone?

So you’re buying a new skiff. Awesome! Now you’re faced with a very common question, “What’s the difference between a Sundance CCR and DX?” We hear that one a lot, so take a moment and read this short post to help you decide which Sundance is the best boat for your needs.


In the Sundance world, a CCR skiff is one part work horse, one part fishing cruiser. Built with a topside ring cap, our CCR’s include an easy to maintain painted floor (a favorite of charter captains). Throughout the boat there are multiple storage compartments and plenty of seating with passenger capacities ranging between five (F17 CCR) to eight (B22 CCR). On the bow and aft of the CCR, there’s a casting deck with non-skid which are great for throwing lines and working a fish in virtually any direction. Though capable of both family fun and hardcore fishing, the CCR might be considered by some buyers to be more utilitarian or less frills than a DX.


A Sundance DX is our premier, “full liner” skiff. Inside, there’s a completely finished top side that gives a head-turning, luxurious look along with a few more creature features than one might find in a CCR. Specifically, a DX will have non-skid flooring throughout, more cup & rod holders, as well as additional storage bins. Also in the aft, every DX includes two, full-sized, folding jump seats with a clear-view aerated bait well in between as well as a swim platform and ladder. Other differences include larger seating areas in the bow with storage below and a back saving upward step to the forward casting deck.

Happy 😊 Thursday Everyone! #sundanceboats #suzukimarine #beach #boating #skiff #skiffs #sunshine #summer
