Choose your Power

Aluminum Fishing boats can be powered by anything from 50-hp to 300-hp, depending on the size of the boat and the mission. We recommend you calculate the anticipated total weight of the boat with passengers, fuel and gear, then decide what best cruise speed you want to attain if you plan on fairly long runs.

New vs. Used

A used fishing boat is a more affordable option than buying a new boat. Aluminum boats are very sturdy and can last a lifetime. This means they retain their resale value extremely well, so they don't depreciate much over time.
