When you’re shopping for a new recreational boat there are so many options to choose from it’s easy to get overwhelmed. But if you’re looking for a fun passenger boat, consider buying a deck boat for your lakefront property.
As the name implies, a deck boat has a large width deck area able to accommodate between 6 and 14 passengers. A deck boat generally runs between 18 and 28 feet, is trailer compatible, and features either an outboard, stern drive, or jet engine propulsion. They offer a layout that’s comparable to a pontoon boat but they also offer performance and handling that’s similar to a runabout.
What makes a deck boat unique is that its large passenger capacity doesn’t deter from its looks or performance. A deck boat is sleek, fun, and powerful which makes them a great fit for boat towed watersports like skiing, kneeboarding, and skurfing. They feature a movable v-bottom hull making it easy to skim along the water. Many deck boats have features like a walk-through windshield, comfortable and spacious seating and a dual console, along with a stylish sporty look.
