Are Deck Boats Right for You?
From fishing to tubing to cruising, when you and your family want to do it all, a deck boat is a good fit. Deck boats offer a huge seating area, often rivaling that of a pontoon boat. But they typically have a fast, maneuverable vee-bottom hull that skims over the water much like a bowrider. With a variety of engine packages available, you'll have plenty of juice for skiing, tubing and wakeboarding, or just heading toward the horizon on a long cruise.
