Couldn't be happier with my new Sportsman 312. Quality workmanship for a reasonable price. Factory staff are all outstanding and very helpful all the way to the point of sending me weekly photos during the custom build. This is my second Sportsman and looking forward to upgrading to my third soon. I would highly recommend Sportsman to anyone interested in boating!
The sportsman is great boat which offers up the best of both worlds for family cruising and fishing. I can run the boat offshore and comfortably fish with my buddies then run home and go for a nice cruise with my family all in the same day.
We traded in our Sportsman 251, so we were familiar with and enjoyed the Sportsman brand of boat before purchasing the new Sportsman 312 center console. The ride is excellent on the 312, with the boat slicing through good sized waves with ease and no pounding. The difference is dramatic, and well appreciated. The boat is well equipped and the Garmin system is largely intuitive and easy to use. The configuration, design and layout suit our needs well and are quite multi-functional as well.
This boat and manufacturer is one that I researched for over a year before I made a purchase. When the 282TE came out , I knew that was the perfect fit for me. This boat has not failed to deliver. I had had her out in all conditions and she has responded beautifully. She takes a heavy sea well. Fuel economy is very impressive. Electronics have performed as well. I love the auto-pilot and the depth finders have allowed me to find excellent bottom. Twin engines make maneuvering easy.
I am extremely happy with my purchase. I am very impressed with the ride of the boat. It handles rough water and wakes really well and feels very stable. The many extras that come standard with this boat are a huge plus.
Boat performs well when heading offshore on the Gulf of Mexico and very stable when deep dropping. The deck is well thought out and easy to access all pumps, electrical, and filters. Great Standard features and excellent choice for upgrades when ordering. My favorite is the company answers me direct since I have issues using local service center. Again this is great boat from a owner who has had every top tier boat from 23-31 ft previously and decided to step out of the “Ad’s Name Game!!!”
We love the 252 Sportsman. Great quality for a well priced boat. Sportsman packaged the boat with top of line features. We have other boats turning around to see what boat we are driving. Great boat to fish from. It is not the boat's fault were are doing a lot of fishing and very little catching.
I just want to express the pride I feel being the owner of my Sportsman 252 Open center console. The boat is built extremely well with great attention to detail and material used throughout the boat. Smooth comfortable dry ride. I hold my head up high in my Sportsman Boat.
Coming out of a 32 foot center console, I was looking for a great handling boat with good fit and finish in the 28 foot class. I found it in the 282 Sportsman. The twin 200 Yamaha are fast out of the hole, run upwards of 50MPH and I cruise at better than 3mpg. Wow, that is a huge lift from what I used to spend on fuel heading 30 plus miles offshore on a regular basis. if you are looking for an open fisherman with great features and construction that won't break the bank, take a look at the Sportsman.
Owned alot of boats in the past. The Sportsman 28 I own is one of the best built and layouts of any 28 I have owned. Great family boat with the front layout pad and a fishing machine when I go 60 miles offshore. Very well built, great flare on boat to make it a very dry ride. Thank You
