I absolutely love my Platinum edition bay boat. Why? Stable dry ride - great finish and fixtures - awesome T top - white, blue and red LEDs plus underwater lights - sleek looks - super nice upholstery - lots of storage and big live wells. I could go on. A superior boat and a good price point.
This boat is a fisherman's dream. The boat has all of the amenities that one would need for fishing and the electronics are awesome. Plenty of storage and the rod lockers are so convenient. Top grade upholstery that is easy to maintain. The boat performs well on the water with my 250 Yamaha engine. I highly recommend the Sportsman 227 for anyone who is looking for a boat that can be used for Bass fishing, Stripper fishing and any other freshwater fishing.
I’ve been looking at the Sportsman 227 Masters for awhile and finally pulled the trigger. So far I feel I made the right choice! The changes they made to the 2018 model was exactly my wish list of upgrades so when I seen it I knew it was the one. I’ve only had this boat a little over a month but I can tell you with the way it handles I feel like I’ve owned this boat for years because of the comfort and ease of operation. If your thinking about buying a sportsman no need to hesitate, just do it!
I have been so impressed with my new 2018 Sportsman Masters 227. The boat is extremely functional, has plenty of storage space and the new design on the locker lids makes it so easy to access fishing rods. The helm seat is very comfortable and well designed with plenty of leg room. My Yamaha 250 engine has the power to handle all of the situations that I have been challenged with so far and runs so efficiently. Love the electronics and the side scan feature. This boat is awesome!
After reviewing many many other brands of bay boats the sportsman 227 first caught our eye with its simple yet unique layout. We also found that the layout actually seemed to give us much more room on deck than most of the 24' boats that we reviewed, this is a big deal considering that we are a family of 6. After receipt of our boat we found it to be even more capable than promised. We typically fish bays and backwater but have had no trouble with rough seas as well. Great job Sportsman!
I purchased a 247 Masters bay boat from our local dealer in Statesboro in June of 2017. My family and I have enjoyed the boat and it serves our boating needs wonderfully. We fish a lot and this is a fantastic fishing set up. The dealership was please to work with. We are very pleased with the purchase and service.
I had a Sportsman 247 built in the Spring of 2017. I took delivery of it in May of 2017. I love the way the boat looks, feels and handles. I am very satisfied with it. I looked at several other big name manufactures an the big reason I went with Sportsman was because of the dry ride and ease of handling under power. I have fell in love with the bench seat in the rear and the accessibility to all the pumps, hoses and equipment under the rear deck. I think they did a great job with wiring too.
2018 Sportsman 247 Platinum turns heads like no other boat I have ever owned! I give Sportsman an A+ for ride comfort, performance and quality at a reasonable price point. Whether 30 miles offshore or in the shallow banks of the marsh I am covered with a boat that can do it all.
