Really enjoy my new Sportsman and highly recommend to others. What sold me in the end was the standard features that it came with from the factory. It was also very refreshing and helpful to get upfront pricing.
Very happy with the purchase of our Sportsman boat. The ride and comfort is awesome. We are on our boat once a week. Not looking forward to the winter months coming. It is one of the smoothest riding boats I have been on. We have 31 hours on the boat and so far no issues. We have owned the boat for about three months.
My family and I have spent all summer on the boat and love it. Excellent boat for the price. We actually had a down payment on another brand before we found Sportsman at a boat show. Would buy a Sportsman again.
Sharp, well-prepared boat with the highest seating capacity in its class. Great for recreational cruises with family and friends. Capable fisherman—deep vee configuration enables tackling inlet and offshore (if not too choppy!). Plenty of storage. I recommmend a second integrated GPS/screen for engine monitoring as there are no separate gauges for temp, fuel, RPM, etc.
My father bought a 231 in 2015. i was sold the day we were cruising 25 to 30mph headwind in a tight 3 foot chop, dry as a bone and able to hold a conversation. We both fell in love with the boat, it packs tons and tons of qualities for fishing yet still a comfortable cruiser for the whole family. In turn, I talked my wife into one, a 231 Heritage, and it will probably be the last boat I will buy ever. Perfect for the Chesapeake, the family loves it and it will get me anywhere I want.
We could not be more pleased with the purchase of our new Sportsman. We looked at nearly every boat in the 21-23 foot range over the course of a year before purchasing the 231 Heritage. The fit, finish, ride, and included equipment far surpassed the rest of the manufacturers we looked at.
