Aquatic Adventures: 5 of the Best Boat Brands

More people are discovering the joy of boating each year with the purchase of a new boat. Last year, sales of new boats and marine products totaled $41 billion.

While there are countless boat manufacturers producing a wide range of watercraft, there are some boat brands that stand above the rest. If you’re looking to invest in a quality boat, you need to consider these brands.

Look to these five brands first in your search for a new boat.

  1. Bertram 

Don’t discount this brand because they don’t have an extensive product line. They may have a lower production rate than they once had, but they have a die-hard following.

This iconic brand won Boat Trader’s “Boating Madness” award that recognizes America’s favorite boat brand. Their classic models are still in high demand with new owner’s choosing to refinish and repower rather than buy new.

  1. Boston Whaler 

When it comes to luxury and fishing boats, look no further than this unmistakable legend. If you own one of these boats, you get to enjoy something rare in the boating industry, a strong resale value.

Even boats that are 20 years old retain a large portion of their value. This retained value is supported by the brand’s consistent performance in receiving Consumer Satisfaction Index Awards.

It was one act 60 years ago that cemented the brand’s devotion among boaters. The founder of the company sawed a boat in half and proceeded to cruise across the water.

  1. Grady-White 

Another powerhouse in the fishing boat arena is Grady-White. The brand consistently ranks at the top with consumers. This privately-owned company takes a proactive approach when it comes to pleasing customers.

What began as a small company building wooden boats has turned into a line of 28 different boat models. Thanks to their recent expansion into a 70,000 square foot facility, they can build their biggest boat ever, a 45 foot Canyon 456.

  1. MasterCraft 

MasterCraft consistently receives awards for its innovations and advanced technology developments in the manufacturing plant. One standout feature of their boats is the “MasterCare” warranty.

This is a five-year warranty that covers everything on the boat from bow to stern, including the marine battery. The warranty is fully transferrable, which makes their used boats more desirable.

  1. Sea Ray 

The Sea Ray brand has claimed more awards than any other brand. Plus, more of their boats appear on top lists than any other brand. Their product line is robust, with over 40 different models, and more introduced each year.

The company focuses on building fiberglass boats meant for pleasure and luxury boating. You’ll find everything from 17-foot ski boats to 65-foot yachts.
