How to Find the Perfect Boat
It's difficult enough for an experienced boater to find the perfect boat, but for a first time boater it can be even more difficult. However, there are a few key areas that can help your quest to find the perfect boat.
Types of boats
Boats will typically fall into five categories:
- fishing boats,
- power boats,
- personal watercraft,
- self powered boats
When searching for the perfect boat, we need to look at what each of the categories offers. We will go through the first three major categories; fishing boats, power boats and sailboats.
Power boats are the most popular types of boats sold, which contributes to the varied designs that can be sought. Power boats with seating in the front are called bowriders, and are mainly used for towing skiers or rafts. They can also be used for fishing as well. To do this there are many ski and fish combined power boats available.
The designs that are available for fishing boats vary quite a bit, as are the places where they can be used. Fishing boats that are meant for shallow waters of inland lakes and rivers are not the same boats that are meant for deep seas and great lakes. There are many designs available even for boats that serve no other purpose besides fishing. These boats usually have stowage and holders for bait, fishing poles, tackle, and sometimes have special tanks for holding live fish.
Sailboats are probably the most difficult boat to pilot. It can be very challenging, although also very rewarding once mastered. A lot of skill and knowledge is required to operate a sailboat in comparison to other boats.
Again, as with other types of boats, sailboats have several varied designs although the single masted sloop is the most popular.
Decide what is important
When deciding on your perfect boat you need to decide what is important to you. This will include deciding upon the use of the boat - private use, fishing, or cruising. Your family may also contribute to what is important when deciding on a boat if they are interested in boating themselves.
Once you have decided upon a selection of boats that you are interested in, take a look at what each one offers and how you plan to use it. There are plenty of boats out there and you are sure to find one that is perfect for you, you just need to discover your most important aspects in a boat.
