Where do I start?

Ask yourself the following questions:

  1. What am I doing on the water? Fishing? Cruising? Going to the Islamorada Sandbar?

  2. How many people are in my party?

  3. What are the dates?

  4. Have I driven a boat before?

  5. Do I know the area and water?

What boats are best for what activities?

Center Consoles

  • Center Consoles are good fishing boats and cruising boats.  If you want to go far offshore, you'll need a bigger boat with twin engines (27' and up).  

  • Smaller Center Consoles are good near shore fishing and cruising boats.  Some can even go bayside if you know the waterways well.


Bay Boats

  • Bay Boats have flatter bottoms so they can better navigate the shallow waters of the bay. They are great cruising and fishing boats.

  • Generally speaking, Bay Boats are not ideal for the ocean as the ride tends to be rougher in heaiver open ocean winds.


Cover Deck Boats

  • Cover Deck Boats are boats strickly built for comfort and fun.  They offer lots of seating, smooth rides and shade from the sun.

  • Cover Deck Boats are meant for easy cruising, bayside or near shore oceanside, and anchoring up and enjoying the Islamorada Sandbar.
