Default Best Boats for Beginners

Are you looking into getting your first boat? Are you uncertain about what boat would be the best one for you? There are so many different styles of boats, used for various types of boating and/or fishing. Making sure you select the right one for your needs is very important.

If you are a bank side fisher who wants to start fishing on the water, we would recommend looking into a center console style boat. Something with efficient room to maneuver around in while trying to reel in your catch, but also has ample room for all your bait, tackle and a live well. You may also want to consider a trolling motor attachment to help you drift through the water more quietly, preventing you from scaring off all the fish. If you are looking for something a little smaller, consider an open Jon style boat or even a v-hull fishing boat.

If you’re not looking for a fishing boat, but rather something for skiing and tubing, we would recommend a jet boat or tournament ski. These boats are built with a strong inboard motor for speed and durability in pulling. Make sure the boat comes equipped with the proper ski tow and easy on/off access.

Maybe you just want to relax and spend leisure time on your boat, nothing high-speed or too adventurous. You might want to look into a nice pontoon. Pontoon boats come in various arrangements, giving you the options to choose what you really want. With a pontoon, you can have more people on your boat to enjoy a nice picnic on the water, spend the day sun-bathing, fishing, or just hanging out.

What if you want the best of everything?! You want to fish, ski and tube? Go all out and get a power cruiser that would accommodate all of your needs, keeping in mind they can be large and somewhat expensive. Whatever your boating style is, a quick trip to a local marine sales shop to look at a variety of boats can give you a visual idea of what is best for your boating preference.

Any experienced boaters out there have suggestions for the Rookies? What was your first boat?
