How To Select Your Saltwater Fishing Boat

Aug 17, 2007
When it comes to fishing, the top priority of many anglers is to secure a good boat. A saltwater fishing boat can be difficult to pick out, with the many options available to anglers, and while long-time fishermen with decades of experience tend to have their favorites, novices may need a little assistance to pick out a boat. A good way to start is by reviewing some of the most well known, competitive brands of boats to see what features you like and desire in your own vessel.

One manufacturer of the saltwater boats is Pro Sports Boats, which split to offer their boats under two separate names in 2006, the ProKat (a line of power catamarans) and SeaQuest (the line of monohulls). This new line of monohulls is taking a new look at the small and medium size saltwater fishing boat, using top of the line accessories while maintaining a price level that is inoffensive by minimizing standard features. You have a choice of bay boats, coastal boats, and center consoles ranging between 18 and 25 feet. There will also be the 3000 series, a line of boats that includes a center console, a cuddy cabin, and a sport cuddy model. The ProKat catamarans will offer a relaxing and familiar type of boat and name brand that lends itself to fishing for blue tuna, albacore, and much more.

Another excellent manufacturer of the saltwater boats is Brunswick Boat Group, headquartered out of Knoxville, Tennessee. This group produces all manner of pleasure and fishing boats, including popular name brands like Sea Ray, Bayliner, and Meridian that range up to 100 feet in length, as well as smaller vessels. The company offers a fine, luxurious saltwater fishing boat in the Baja series, which range from 20 to 44 feet in length. You'll even find smaller, more affordable models, such as the Sea Boss, Sea Pro, Laguna, Palmetto, and more that reach up to 52 feet in length but can be found as small as 11 feet. For those who want a reasonable, average sized saltwater fishing boat, look into the Brunswick Crestliner, Triton, or Princecraft boats, which come in fishing, deck, and pontoon varieties ranging between 10 and 35 feet in length.

Depending on the type of fishing you intend to do, you may have varied opinions on the best type of boat to have, as well as the size that you need to have to accomplish your goal.
