Having owned other boats built in florida this is one of the best rides I have been on. Every time we are at the ramp someone is looking and asking about the boat. Plus, one of my coworkers has just taken ownership of a 24 master after looking at mine and then going to boat show in Sararsota fla. Thank you Sportsman for a great boat.
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 it 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!
This purchase was one of the most researched ones, my wife and I have done on purchasing a boat. Over 1 Year of boat shows, dealerships and internet searching. The dealership was like going to a family reunion they spent over 2 months of answering questions and looking at all the models, every time with a smile an was happy to see us. The Sportsman boat and features were outstanding to the other center console boats we looked at. Thank you Sportsman for have a great product and a outstanding dealership
This is a dry, smooth-riding boat. I fish on the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds in NC and this boat takes the rough water like a champ. It can also get into skinny water to catch largemouth bass. It is a great platform for catching big drum, and when the weather allows, catching nearshore Cobia.
We are very happy with our purchase. Our dealer in Texas has done a very good job of taking care of the details before and after the sale.
Knowledge of the product they are selling is excellent, and they do not seem to mind the after hours calls to help make your boating experience the best it can be. Service department is also on top of their game, in and out as promised.
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.
Our first boat purchase couldn’t have gone better. We were directed to Sportsman by friends who have enjoyed Sportsman themselves. The selections on the lot were enough for us to choose from. The sales staff were extremely professional, yet personable. The boat has turned out to be great for all the fishing my son wants to do, and has also been perfect as a family boat to venture out for breakfast, lunch or dinner on the river. It’s a true asset to our family.
I recently took delivery of my new 2019 Sportsman 247 and it has totally blown me away with its performance and ride. I feel like I have made the best buying decision when it comes to a new boat. My dealer and Sportsman have been extremely helpful when my ordering process and delivery. I feel grateful to own such a well-built, thought out, good looking, functional, and best riding bay boat on the market. My family will enjoy this boat for years to come.
We are absolutely loving our new Masters 247 with the Yamaha 250 Vmax SHO motor!! This thing is a fishing machine, one minute we're in 40 feet of water bottom fishing and the next we're in 1. 5 feet of water catching Reds. We can't wait to take this boat offshore to get in 100+ feet of water looking for Grouper and Snapper. The boat handles like a dream, maneuvers as nimble as my old 18 foot boat! Even my wife got used to driving it extremely fast, after initially being intimidated by it's size.
