In “Part 1” of this blog, we discussed some of the most affordable fishing boats. These starter boats are easy to operate and don’t have too many accessories attached to them that might make navigation difficult.
If you have had your fun with small boats, perhaps you are looking for something bigger, better, and faster to move on to. If that’s the case, then let’s take a look at some fancier boats. Keep in mind that these boats are a little expensive and in order to operate them, you would need a boating license.
Following are five fancy beginner level boats that are an upgrade over fishing boats:
1. Cabin Cruiser
Has it been a dream of yours to the boat on luxury? A cabin cruiser is like a mini yacht that you can take a vacation on. It can cruise on any water and once onboard, you will have quite the adventure. If you are looking for some reprieve from your hectic schedule and want to spend a week out all on your own, then this boat will be the best buddy you could ever have. It has enough space to store gear and supplies. Plus, if you want to deck it out, there are plenty of add-ons you can go for. As we said, this boat is a little expensive and the starting price is $80,000.
2. Cuddy Cabin
We know that the price of the cabin cruiser was quite the shock to you, which is why we bring you something a little less expensive than still offers you a luxurious cruise. If you like to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, then you will love the cuddy cabin. It does not contain the bling that a cabin cruiser does, but the speed more than makes up for it. It has a small cupboard for storage which is enough because this boat is more about speeding. The starting price of a cuddy cabin is $47,000.
3. High-Performance Boats
If it’s the speed that you are looking for and by that we mean the kind of rush that leaves a stream of water behind, then take a look at high-performance boats. These boats come in different sizes ranging from 20 feet to over 50 feet. They have a giant center console, inboard power, and a cockpit. The bigger the boat, the more the amenities it has such as a cabin, a deck, etc. You can buy this boat for $62,000.
4. Jet Boats
A boat with a sporty look that has no propeller… these two characteristics describe a jet boat to a T. The engine of this boat is built into the hull, which is why it can easily speed on shallow waters. This is the dreamboat that most people go for as a luxury purchase. This boat costs around $25,000.
This boat is also known as a walkaround cuddy as it resembles a center console boat with that is more posh. Bigger walkarounds come with a cabin, a toilet, storage, and a few other amenities. The unobstructed passway of the boat makes it great for anglers. This boat is available for $67,000.
And there you have it – our list of fancy boats for upgraders. Now that you have a clear idea about how much a boat costs, you can easily set your budget before browsing online. Make sure to add a floating dock to your list for properly securing your boat.
