You have to know what you will be using your boat for to decide which the best boat is for you. Then you can get down to details like how big, type of motor, colors that you want and so on. If the boat will be for fishing and skiing, it would be different than a boat for fishing and entertaining.


A fishing boat can be as plain as a metal boat with metal bench seats, or as fancy as a boat with chairs made especially for fishing, and a bathroom and/ or a sleeping compartment. It can be large or small, made for fishing small fish, or big fish. These boats are for true fishermen. Some enjoy the finer things and thus would go for a boat with more options and features.
