Best riding boat I have ever owned. I have owned over 20+ boats in my life and Sportsman took a lot of time designing this one. The hull rides great and the access to the electronics and bilge is great especially the lighting in the bilge access area makes it nice to do service on it.
When retiring I was looking for a new boat for offshore purposes. I needed a boat that was small enough to trailer easily but yet large enough to feel safe in big water. I stopped at boat shows, looked on the internet, then went to several marinas comparing many brands. We settled on the 232 Open for its style and componets. There was no shopping around for T-Tops, Electronics, etc. Everything was set up in the boat the way I would have it done. I urge others to check Sportsman out before buying
Our 232 open is a great overall exciting boat,we use it for fishing and family fun,a very dry boat in rough waters,(which keeps the ladies hair day a good thing) and the best part of the boat is it catches fish…
My wife and I spent months researching offshore boat options and decided to move forward with a Sportsman. We are very pleased with the comfort, durability and overall functionality of the boat. By far, this is the best boat we have owned.
We purchased the Masters Platinum 227 and It Is an outstanding boat. Fit, finish, accessibility to major components for service Is second to none. Ride and fish ability are a joy. We will be a Sportsman boat family forever.
This boat has exceeded my expectations! It fills all of my needs and wishes for a boat. It handles off shore well while It drafts very shallow which allows me to fish Inshore also. This boat fishes like a larger boat. When taking the family out for a lazy, fun day It accommodates all 6 of us very comfortably. With the Yamaha power I feel assured of the reliability and know It can get us In quickly If necessary.
