BUYING A SALTWATER FISHING BOAT
Anglers heading out into the great oceans need a different kind of fishing boat than freshwater fisherman.
Saltwater boats are made with different materials and are much sturdier and larger in order to handle high waves and salt corrosion. However, a lot of fisherman prefer versatility and will only use saltwater boats because they can navigate in both fresh and saltwater. You never know when you might take that legendary fishing trip out to the coasts.
Like with all boats, saltwater fishing boats range in size and function. We recommend the center-console fishing boats because they are the most versatile models.
Bay boats are the most specialized center-console boat. They are designed for estuarine fishing, where speckled sea trough and redfish tend to populate. If you want to go big into the great seas, consider a center console yacht. These behemoths are designed to navigate the open ocean, but could never fish in shallow bay areas like the bay boat.
