The Different Types of Boats to Consider When Looking to Purchase

Last updated 7 years ago

Many people dream of owning a boat, and for good reason: There are only a handful of truly exhilarating experiences in this world—boating is certainly one of them. With so many different boats available to purchase, it’s never been easier to take advantage of the many benefits that boating has to offer.

Before you visit a boat dealer, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the different types of boats available for purchase. Below is a bit more information about a few of our favorite boats:

  • Bowriders – Here in Orlando (where boat sales is a thriving business), one of the most popular type of boat is the bowrider. Thanks to spacious seating in the bow and a swim platform at the stern, bowriders are built to provide some fun. Sterndrive power is the norm for most bowriders, but outboard engines are becoming increasingly popular amongst boating enthusiasts.   
  • Cruisers – When you want the whole boating package, nothing beats a cruiser. The dynamic V-hull of a cruiser provides a smooth ride in virtually any condition, while the luxurious and stylish interiors promise comfortable overnight stays. Trust us; nothing turns heads quite like the fresh, bold design of a cruiser.  
  • Cuddies – Perfect for family boating and small groups, Cuddies are nimble and maneuverable like bowriders, but have a closed deck over the bow. The closed deck creates a cozy sleeping area and lends a sleek, sporty look to the exterior of the boat. These little boats are ideal for fun water activities, such as skiing, tubing, and wakeboarding
  • Carolina Skiffs – Carolina skiff boats are designed to be versatile. Whether you’re cruising through the bayou or deep sea fishing, Carolina skiffs focus on maximizing interior space, fuel efficiency, and carrying capacity for the best possible boating experience. These boats are great for fishing trips and pleasure cruises.
