Angler Boats for sale
Purchasing an angler boat for sale
Angler boats and fishing boats are slightly different from one another. The difference is comparable to professional vs. hobbyist. While the fishing boats tend to have a fair number of features, the angler boats are fully loaded, specifically designed for the fisherman/woman’s needs. They are multi-purpose, more powerful, and in a higher demand than most of the vessels on the market. If you are an angler seeking a vessel, why not choose a boat which meets your profession by considering the angler boats for sale.Read More
The angler boats for sale must consider the maneuvering of the passengers around the bow, port, starboard, and transom. Because of this, nearly every angler boat has a center console design. This allows for the angler to wrestle a fish from stern to bow if needed, without having to hand off the reel to another while circumventing obstacles.
In addition to the optimized deck layout for maneuverability, are several additives not common on leisure vessels. The standard for most anglers are bait preparation stations, tackle boxes on the port and starboard, live wells on the transom, under deck fish storage on the stern, rod storage in the gunwales, rod holders encircling the entire boat, and rocket road holders from the captain’s chair and (if equipped) on the T-top, hard-top, or fishing towers.
Overall designs vary, but the hulls of the angler boats for sale tend to be Deep Vee, ribbed, or stepped hull; fabricated with either injection foam or inlaid fiberglass insulation.
Powering the angler boats for sale
Depending upon the model and the manufacturer, the base power options will vary slightly. HCB boats, for example, allow for the customer to match the casing of the outboards with the color of the hull/T-top. Then the company puts anywhere from 3 to 5 motors on the back of their craft. Comparatively, Sea Ray and Sea Vee boats tend to have a twin to triple outboard engine configuration, opting for higher HP engines such as the 300 and 350HP Mercury 4-stroke.
While you may be able to find seven marine engines on some angler boats for sale, they are not common. Seven marine engines are primarily for powerboats and higher-powered vessels. As the angler boats shift between the need for speed and power in the rougher offshore waters and trolling in calmer seas, a lower HP outboard may be the best option.
Where to use an angler boat for sale?
Angler boats are oriented to be used in both freshwater and saltwater. However, most of the manufacturers cater to the offshore fisherman/woman, as regulations in Florida restrict the outboard motor somewhat as well as the places where freshwater fishing can occur. And as the Atlantic and the Gulf has a higher demand, and as the vessels offered by the manufacturers are typically 30+ feet, it makes sense that use for offshoring angler purposes is the primary focus.
