It's all relative - in this size 8'6 might indeed be considered "extra wide," but how much of a difference is 6" of beam going to give you? I believe there are several manufacturers that do or have in the past made a 19 with an 8' beam.

Default Wide beam

Just bought a Scout 191. Front deck is wide which is why I chose it, my son and I cast side by side with plenty of room. Very happy with the layout

Take 6 inches out of your beam and ask yourself that question again....

That 6" is huge especially at 19' long.

Tough to beat the beam of a cape horn. Plus the gunwale width is narrower than most as it is not a 2 piece boat design so the inside space is huge.

My Tidewater 1910 Baymax has a full 8’ beam that is carried to about 14 feet before the nose begins to pinch in. Love it.

Here’s a detailed review i did:

Well Carolina Skiffs DLV have the widest bow in this size I would think. 8' beam but doesn't get narrow much in the bow.

Normally naval architects try and stay close to a 3:1 length to beam ratio for performance and sea handling. They will tend towards narrower hulls for higher speeds and wider for shallower draft, they're all compromises to some extent. A wide body approaching 2:1 ratio is by nature going to be a very shallow capable hull but at the cost of tackling bigger waves comfortably. I built this skiff with an 8' wide bottom and 8'6" max beam on the sheer. Does it get shallow? Oh yeah, is it a gulfstream boat, no! (I mainly put that in for my son who keeps going to the Big Rock on it! )

How long is that? He fishes the Big Rock Tournament in that? That's cool. And a beautiful boat!
