What is the Right Type of Boat for Me?

Posted by Gail Farias on Nov 11, 2019, 3:05:23 PM

Recreational, cruising and fishing boats come in many sizes and shapes, each designed for specific use and level of comfort. To make sure you select the right one, you should consider the intended use, style, configuration, size, and price range. Where your boat will be used and how it will be stored should be critical considerations, as well.

The types of boats and yachts tend to fall into three general categories, although more than one activity can be enjoyed on many.

The principal reasons buyers purchase boats are for:

  • Fishing
  • Cruising
  • Watersports
