I have owned a couple of bay boats and I was looking to upgrade. I am thrilled with this boat in all aspects from finishes to performance. Absolutely the best boat for the money on the market and it looks great.
The thought process going into building this boat is extremely evident. From the finished bilge area to the pump and electrical access points and the fit and finish. You can tell that real fishing and boating people designed this boat. Sportsman doesn’t just stand behind on what they build, they improve every year with input from their customers. That is the mark of a great company.
After owning a 227 Masters and deciding to move up to the 247, I could not be happier with my decision. The 247 is the perfect boat for me and my family. Great layout, storage, ride, and drive. It rides extremely smooth and is efficient. Sportsman has picked the best partners with Yamaha, Garmin, JL Audio, and Gemlux, which makes the whole package a winning combo!
This is my second Sportsman 247. Researched and drove many other manufacturers but came back to Sportsman. Love their boats and product service is second to none. For the second one, I could have went with any other make but for the money you just can’t beat a Sportsman! I highly recommend riding in the competitors and you’ll see the difference.
This has been an absolutely amazing boat in and offshore, a fish slaying machine. We love all of the storage areas, the three live wells and the ease to access anything in the bilge area. The service and parts departments at my local dealer has been nothing short of outstanding. Being a fleet manager myself and having dealt with nearly every local dealership of many types of vehicles and equipment, I am well versed in how things should be run, this dealership knocks it out of the park!
Recently bought my 247 Masters with the second station and I absolutely love it. Great ride, performance and the fit and finish is top notch. I also looked at other boat brands and ultimately landed on the Sportsman. I’m very satisfied with my purchase and my family loves it as well. Looking forward to making lots of memories on the water.
A little more than a year ago, we started researching to purchase a 22-24ft bay boat. After sea trialing just about every other bay boat in this class, we decided on the 247 Platinum and couldn't be more satisfied. Like anything new, there will be small hiccups, but Sportsman has helped us with every small issue that has come up. Every where we go in our 247, we get compliments on it.. If we had brochures to hand out, we could definitely sell some here on the Gulf Coast of Louisiana!!!
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.
