Best Boats for Saltwater Fishing

Summer months are the perfect time to get out on the water to enjoy some saltwater fishing. Whether you are an experienced angler or just looking to spend some quality time with your family and friends, saltwater fishing offers an ideal combination of excitement and relaxation to recharge your spirit. A wide variety of saltwater fishing boats are available, which can make choosing the best boat for your adventure seem a daunting task. To aid you in this decision, Atlantic Yacht and Ship offers the following guide to the best boats for saltwater fishing:

All-Purpose Fishing Boats
These versatile boats can be used in both salt water and freshwater to fish a variety of species, and are designed to navigate many different types of waterways. They are typically powered by outboard motor(s), and feature live wells and a trolling motor.

Cabin Cruisers
Extremely popular, they offer all the comforts of home including a galley, head, and one or more sleeping berths, with other amenities available. Stern-drive models range from 24′ to 40’and are typically used inland, while inboard cruisers are generally over 30′ in length and are steered with a rudder.

Center Console
Easily recognizable by their central console surrounded by an open deck, these rugged boats are designed for choppy offshore waters and are usually used for ocean fishing.

Cuddy Cabins
An ideal vessel for family outings, this maneuverable vessel has a closed deck over the bow that creates a cozy “cuddy” or cabin space, with room for a sleeping area. Many models include heads and sinks, and sometimes even cooking areas.

Motor Yacht/Cruisers
The ideal vessel for ocean cruising, entertaining, and world traveling, they come with all the creature comforts. Sedan Bridge styles have almost all the features of sport fishing boats, with added amenities and comforts, while yachts focus more on luxury.

Multi-Hull Power Boats
Also known as catamarans, these high-performance saltwater fishing boats are designed for offshore boating and extended cruising, with twin deep v-hulls and twin engines delivering speed, power, and stability.

Sportfishing Boats
Designed expressly for serious saltwater fishing, sportfishers come complete with sleeping berths, a galley, and plumbing, and are able to stay on the water for days at a time.

Walkaround
Family fishers designed for comfort, they include a small cabin, live wells and a cozy cuddy with room for a head and sink.
