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.
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.
We recently purchased a 24 Sportsman 242 Open. We live in the Tampa Bay area with great access to the Gulf, Bays and rivers. We wanted a dry boat since Tampa Bay gets choppy, as well as a boat with plenty of seating and beverage holders. After owning the boat for a month and taken it out in various conditions 6 times it has delivered on all of our checklist items. The boat handles very well in choppy waters, is a very dry boat with plenty of seating for cruising with friends.
We have owned 10 boats and the Sportsman 242 is the BEST! Extremely smooth ride in rough water. Steers and handles very well at higher speeds. I definitely recommend the Sportsman Boats and would buy another one.
When My wife and I decided to upgrade from my 204fx, I came across Sportsman at my dealership. We were undecided between the 232 and 242 because of the price increase. After a quick test ride we knew the 242 would better suit the waters we frequent. The boat has exceeded all my expectations. From the craftsmanship to the performance. Not only am I glad we found sportsman but that we went for the 242! If you are undecided between the 232 and 242 I say go for the 242.
