Adipose Releases New Drift Boat Model

 Adipose, a Helena, Montana-based drift boat company, unveiled their first new model since 2009, The Runoff, at the 2017 Denver Fly Fishing Show this past January. “It’s a high-sided model with the same footprint, design, and overall look, but it’s a bigger-bowed boat,” says boat builder Justin Waayenberg. “We’ve really built this name [by] being extremely functional and fishable, and now we’re tapping into the market with a skiff for rivers with more rapids, bigger water, and a heavier spring flow where they need the added safety of a bigger boat.”

Adipose interiors have all the bells and whistles, and are known for innovative layouts and storage spaces. And as a small company, they can customize a boat’s interior features and exterior wraps. “For the guides, this is their office; they’re in it 170 days a year. Everything has to be functional and comfortable,” Waayenberg adds.
