Boat Shopping


Recommended Posts

I use this to search craigslist

http://www.searchtempest.com/

It enables you to search by a mile radius. So you can look at all boats listed within 150 miles or so without going to each individual craigslist page.

There of course is boat trader... Which have just about everything...

Have you narrowed down what you want?

Most fishing boats are sold privately so tough to find a used one at a boat dealership. You need to make a list of what you want in a boat and let everyone know so we can help. For me it was this,

Had to be trailer able

Cuddy with a head

Walkaround

24 to 28ft

low hours

flat floor in cockpit

storage for fishing gear

full canvas or hard top

In the end I had it down to 4 boats and wife said no to all of them I remembered one in Muskegon I was on the fence about. So I went back and made a offer on it pending my wife liking it and she said yes.

Post what you think you want Dave. I'm always looking at boats for a couple of friends who have a perpetual case of twofootitis. Your Internet fishing network is your best source to find what is out there.

Length?

Style (cuddy, walkaround, center console, dual console...)

I/O, OB? Single/dual/kicker?

Age?

How far away?

Check the Monroe area. I saw literally over a hundred different boats for sale at the marinas and on the sides of the road while fishing over there this past may and june. also check the port Clinton area lots of boats for sale in that area also.

I'm looking to sell or trade for a smaller aluminum boat. I've got a 25' Grady with twin 200's and a 4stroke kicker. Fishes and trailers like a dream, just dont have the time to use it...
