A boat can be one of the most exciting purchases you can make. Not only is it an investment in leisure, it's the ultimate reward for your hard work, allowing you to maximize your free time. Buying a boat can seem stressful at first, but only if you aren't prepared. Finding the right boat that best suits your needs is the critical first step on your boat-buying journey.
Start with assessing two general, but important, needs: speed (how fast you want the boat to go), and size (how big you’d like it to be). Consider your interests. Do you love fishing the open waters? If so, you may want to look into a center console boat. Manufacturers like Pathfinder, Cobia, Sportsman, and Sailfish offer excellent fishing boats, which offer plenty of room to angle about the boat as well as some creature comfort options to suit the rest of your family. Are you looking for a recreational boat for entertaining and/or day cruising? You might consider looking at Hurricane or Rinker, which both offer comfort and ample seating with plenty of power for towing skiers and tubers.
Once you have a general idea of what speed and size boat you’re looking for, you can begin narrowing down your search by price, year, model, and brand. Boating boasts a friendly, helpful community of people who are both excited and willing to offer insight and advice. Talk to other boat owners you might know or reach out to the experts at a dealership you trust, like Marine Connection, who will be more than happy to help get you started and provide unbiased advice.
Whether its drifting the day away aboard a roomy pontoon with friends and family, or hunting for trophy fish on a sea-carving sportfishing boat, we can all agree, the water is a great place to be.
