Starcraft has been building rugged aluminum freshwater fishing boats for decades, and we'd rank the design and functionality of those boats among the best. This side-console model comes with a Lowrance X-125 fish-depth sounder, Minn-Kota trolling motor, 21-gallon divided livewell in the stern and 22-gallon livewell in the bow. Rod storage is lockable. If these features were options, you'd be pushing the asking price into the mid-to-high $20,000 range. A 90 ELPTO 2-stroke Mercury outboard will keep the Starfish 176 under $20,000.
