Boating has been helping fishermen make boat buying decision since 1956. While as many fishing boats today use outboard power as diesel inboard engines, and outriggers aren’t made from bamboo any more, we still provide the best fishing boat reviews for angling boaters. Whether you are looking for a bass fishing boat, an inshore fishing boat, a flats boat, a bay boat or an offshore fishing boat, the boat tests you find here will prove rewarding. Boating’s Certified Boat Tests include performance data, cruising boat pricing-current at date of publication-and detailed descriptions of layout and features. Best of all, our experienced editors, the world’s foremost powerboat experts, deliver insightful commentary, including providing a comparison boat that will help you better understand where the test boat fits in the marketplace.
