Maritime Skiffs are excellent boats. Paul Hureau, their creator, ran Whaler's commercial division for 14 years before leaving to start Maritime. I have tested three 20' models (20D, 20C, & 20P) and four 23's (23D, 23P, 23PA, & 23C) for BOATING and Chesapeake Bay Magazines over the past eight years. They're tough, well-designed, and efficient, esp. w/ four-stroke engines. Good luck.

I went and looked at one in the 23 foot range. Great seakeeper for the bays and tidal inlets. No draft to speakof but, for what they built them for, there great.
Reason, I din't put my money down on one, was I need one to get my 20 miles offshore and back without pounding. 2 Bad disks is my problem.
If they had more draft, I'd buy one in a minute.
I've had downeasters 30+ footers, Canadian built boats for the maratimes and I know how great they can be.
