Ocean Boats and Bay Boats - Catch the Trophy Fish in any Part of the Sea

Coastal fishing for saltwater species has been around since the beginning of time. Saltwater fishing boats open up opportunities to explore more fishing spots, essentially endless places you and your boat can pursue looking for the day's catch. Saltwater fishing boats offer a variety options so the one you choose should depend on a number of variables, what type of species of fish do you intend to pursue, where will you primarily be fishing, and what else you'd like to do with your boat.
  • Offshore Sportfishing Boats

    Boats designed for offshore sportfishing are made to meet the demand of offshore conditions. The design of these boats creates a smoother, drier ride for those aboard. Typically, offshore sportfishing boats can run over 30-knots to help get to the bite quickly. Offshore sportfishing boats can also come equipped with electronics such as fish finders, GPS, chart plotters, electronic compass, autopilots, and engine monitors, all projected on and controlled by one or several multi-function displays. Many owners of offshore sportfishing boats use their boats for inshore fishing and simply cruising and enjoying the water with family and friends.
  • Center and Dual Console Offshore Sportfishing Boats

    The center console saltwater fishing boat category comes from the controls being mounted in or near the center of the boat with side deck space around it, and an open area throughout the boat. Center console fishing boats range in size from 11-feet to over 50-feet and are designed to operate in a wide range of sea conditions providing a safer, more comfortable ride over longer distances. Dual console offshore fishing boats have a helm console on the starboard side and a companion console on the other side. Similar to center console boats these typically come with a wide range of fishing features and range from just under 25-feet to over 30-feet. Dual console fishing boats are generally more family friendly with greater comfort features and are designed to help promote a smooth dry ride. Both boat types can come with extensive fishing accessories as well as comfort and family features making them both a great recreational boat for family and friends.

  • Inshore Boats - Bay Boats

    Known as bay boats, these vessels are designed for inshore fishing allowing operation in shallow water for landing fish with a net or by hand. These boats tend to be quick and quiet to avoid startling fish with control stations that can allow for travel and fishing under overhead structures.
