Here are some reasons why so many families have chosen a Sportsman Boat

NMMA Certified

All of our boats feature NMMA certified construction for the highest standards in safety, comfort and quality.

Did you know that an NMMA Certified boat is 7 times less likely to have a safety-related recall? Safety is a top priority at Sportsman Boats and this is just one of the many steps we take in making sure that all of our boats meet and exceed safety standards. Through the yearly certification of each model in our lineup, we are able to maintain our certification. One very important thing about NMMA Certification is that it is an all or none, a manufacturer can not pick and choose what models are certified and which ones are not. Either all models are certified or none of them are.

SportLink® Electronics Integration System

All of our boats include SportLink® Electronics Integration System, a comprehensive electronics package powered by Garmin and JL Audio featuring large color touchscreen multi-function displays with built-in integration for high-quality audio, GPS, autopilot, radar, weather, fishfinder and so much more. We have done the leg work for you, researching the perfect mix of high quality electronic components that all work seamlessly and are able to allow you to just focus on feeling confident operating your boat in any condition. Each model has a set of electronics that complements the boat's size and typical use. The standard package is more than sufficient to get you boating right away though some additional options are available to expand your system's capabilities.

To top it all of, all the components are backed by a 3-year product warranty from their respective manufacturers. This warranty is exclusive to Sportsman Boats and is not matched in any other boat.

Best-In-Class Bilge Access

Total Access Hatch

We recognized that poor access to the bilge was a pain point for a lot of boaters and set to change this with our designs. All of our boats have patented large fiberglass total access hatches at the rear designed for easy access to all maintenance components. They also provide additional storage space for bulky things like lifejackets, casting nets and diving gear, just to name a few.

Standard on all Sportsman Boats. Access varies from model to model.

Great Ride By Design

A great running boat is not achieved by luck, it is masterfully designed to have the required characteristics and performance that modern boaters demand. Our boats are designed with state of the art CAD software and brought to life with advanced milling routers for an absolutely flawless running surface. We choose 0-degree strake designs for a soft and dry ride. This achieves superior ride quality with unparalleled performance and fuel economy.

Our manufacturing processes ensure a high quality boat for many years to come that is dry, safe, functional and comfortable.

Innovation is in our DNA

Innovations Around Every Corner

All of our boats are built with advanced composite materials on modern hull designs. Innovation is at our core foundation and is a daily endeavour for us. We work hard every day to offer you a superior product that puts your family first while maintaining great fishability, offshore capability and amenities for a serious angler.


The boat has all the bells and whistles
Masters 247 is a great all around boat. From pleasure cruising on the lake to wade fishing in the bay or chasing pelagics offshore it has been a pleasure and got the job done.
I purchased a 2018 Masters 207 for my first boat and have been nothing but pleased. I had fished a buddy's 2015 Masters 207 for a bit and when I heard of the changes made for the 2018 model, I had to place an order! So far, so good, and I know if there are any issues, I have confidence that Sportsman will make it right!
