Shopped many brands and read many reviews. Went to several boat shows. I have owned many boats and know what a quality boat build looks like. Sportsman hits all the marks in addition to a great value for the buck. I hope she brings me years of pleasure.
This is a great boat and a good value. I've had it inshore and 45 miles offshore in some nasty weather conditions. It offers a surprisingly dry ride and handles well. My Sportsman is a Platinum Edition 22'7" with hard T top. The seating is also excellent. While I use it for primarily for fishing it also is a good family boat and tows tubes etc. with ease. If you are looking for a new boat, you'd be foolish not to look at Sportsman before making a final decision.
I bought my 2019 Masters 227 in hopes that it would be able to handle a variety of fishing conditions, while also being able to tow the kids on the inner tube and enjoy an evening of cruising with friends and family. This boat does all that and more. It will fish as shallow as any bay boat and keep you dryer than most in transit even in tough conditions. In my opinion, there is no better blend of fishing performance and family friendly design on the market!
This is my second Sportsman. First was the 2013 Masters 207. The ride, construction is second to none. In the Bay or 10 miles out , the boat never disappointed. My second Sportsman is a 227 Platinum. Once again this boat is all first class. From the gel coat to the stainless, nothing but the best. I like the fact that Sportsman standard features include what other manufacturers call options . You can’t go wrong with any Sportsman Boat
Purchased my Masters 247 four years ago. I liked the boat so much I recently purchased a new 2020 model. The boat does everything I want it to do. I use it primarily for fishing but it also is a great family boat as well. Before purchasing I did extensive research and product comparisons. Bottom line my new boat has the best overall quality and features of any boat I researched. Also was competitively priced with other boats I considered.
I have a Sportsman 247 bay with Yamaha 300. This boat handles excellent, is a very solid and dry ride. Overall, I have been very satisfied with the quality of the boat. I looked at three other manufactures of 24'-25' bay boats prior to purchasing the Sportsman 247, over a few months looking at bay boats, I kept going back to the Sportsman for overall quality and workmanship. I have no regrets purchasing the Sportsman 247 bay.
