We researched these type of boats for over a year before we made our final decision. We know we made the right choice and could not be happier with the boat. We constantly have fellow boaters that come up to us and comment on the looks of the boat.
The Open 232 CC Sportsman is a well designed boat and handles the ocean well. The 250 Yamaha gets the boat up on a plane very quick with 8 adults. The premium package has all the necessary features for fishing and pleasure. The seating area is very comfortable with thick cushions and plenty of storage under each seat. The built in cooler is very large and insulated.
My search for a bay boat came with high recommendations from friends to go with a Sportsman. I wasn’t disappointed. I am very impressed how dry the Platinum 247 is in rough waters. With a shallow draft and dry chimes, I’m able to fish both backwaters and off shore. Very versatile. A large deck, plenty of rod storage and the 300 hp Yamaha has elevated my fishing trips to top level. It’s also family friendly. Thumbs up Sportsman!
Great Boat for fishing and recreation. The Platinum package is a must while adding the trolling motor, jack plate and power pole for your fishing pleasure. The instrument panel is simple and informative. Perfect boat for the waters of Tampa Bay and surrounding areas.
Have been an avid boater/fisherman for years & owned many boats. The 247 Masters is the perfect boat for the inshore & nearshore waters of the Lowcountry. Quality, Performance, Value...and one of the best looking & riding boats in its class. The Platinum Package has everything you could need installed properly & designed by Sportsman. When you take delivery you put fuel in it and start boating.
After looking at many bay boats in the 24 foot category I went with the 247 Sportsman. Best looking boat, in my opinion, with many family friendly options. The layout of the boat is well thought out and the quality is great for the price point. I would recommend this boat to those looking for a fishing boat but also want to keep the family in mind.
I purchased the Sportsman 247 Master after looking at a few other 24'-25' bay boats. The price is competitive with the other manufactures and the quality of Sportsman exceeds several other manufactures. This is a quality built boat with great layout, finish and hardware.
