After all, when you’re talking about the different type of fishing boats, prices, pros and cons of each, where you want to fish, motor versus row boat… etc, etc, it soon becomes clear that doing your pre-purchase homework is essential.  And naturally, safety whilst on the water should be your first priority. Along with the purchase of your boat, there are other issues that should be considered that are just as, if not even more important, than the type of fishing boat you decide on.
So when it comes to looking at the types of fishing boat that will perfectly suit you, then the first thing to do is narrow down the type of boat that you’re looking for.  For instance, price might well be the driving factor, in which case our page on cheap fishing boats  will be of interest. Of course, for the hobby fisherman (or woman, because many ladies also enjoy this wonderful sport), then there are many boats that will happily cover a multitude of needs.  Below you can see our ‘top 5’ list of what we consider to be the best small fishing boats. If you want space, durability, and a boat that promises high speeds (with motor added) on the water, the Pelican Intruder fishing boat offers a lot of bang for the buck. Offering a spacious, comfortable ride, if you’re looking for a fishing boat that will provide you with many years of fishing and boating pleasure, the Pelican Intruder 12 is the boat for you!
The Sun Dolphin Pro is constructed from super-rugged thermoformed High Density Polyethylene with a tri-hull design, the boat promises excellent stability and resilience to abrasions, rocks, or tough waters. If you’re looking for a tough, motor ready boat that is lightweight and offers a super-stable ride, the Pelican® Bass Raider 10E Fishing Boat is the boat for you.
The Pelican® Bass Raider 10E Fishing Boat comes with all kinds of extras to make your day on the water full of the little conveniences.
Overall, this is a rugged, durable boat that will provide you with years of fishing pleasure. A great value inflatable pontoon boat that allows you to chose from three separate oar lock positions.  Made from high quality, easy maintenance materials that include powder coated steel tubing for the frame and abrasion resistant PVC. For those that put their boats under extremely heavy use, this lightweight version might not prove robust enough for their liking. With some great built in features, this is a low cost, yet high standard fishing boat that’s both lightweight and durable.  It weighs 100lbs and has a load capacity of 550lbs.
The size and weight of this boat make it particularly easy to transport, fitting easily into a truck bed or van, or can be moved using a utility trailer.
Extremely durable and hardwearing small fishing boat.  Built for longevity, and will last for many years. Very low maintenance, as well as being easy to handle and move around due to its light weight.
A small, extremely easy to transport and handle boat that’s been superbly designed to provide all this yet doesn’t compromise on stability.   Ideal for those who wish to navigate shallow water, narrow channels and fish in places that gas powered boats are not allowed to go.
Provides plenty of storage room not only for additional kit, but for rod and tackle storage as well. The plastic seat can be a little uncomfortable if sitting in it for extended periods of time. If a large force is applied to one side, a pontoon boat has the risk of capsizing, especially if top heavy.
Sport fishing boats are ideal for the more serious angler who’s looking for the biggest or largest variety of fish to catch.  Different types hold different numbers of people, and they can be found in rigid hull or inflatable pontoon construction. Generally small and easy to manoeuvre, meaning you can reach areas of water that larger boats are unable to.
Designed to give good stability whether you’re standing, sitting or sitting side-saddle to fish. Catamaran Fishing Boats are twin hulled boats that can be made from a variety of materials.  The hulls can be rigid or inflatable, and in general are lighter than traditional hulled boats. The twin hull design causes less drag in the water than a traditionally hulled boat, therefore they are easier to power forward (either by using oars or an outboard engine).
The twin hull design does make them a little less easy to manoeuvre in the water and slower to turn. Can be found in different sizes, making them ideal if you want take the family or a friends fishing.

I have one exactly like that(the 8' version)and my wife and I both fish out of it together. I fish with large battery, 24 # thrust trolling motor(hand control), medium ice chest, downsized tackle box, 2 seats, paddle, net, 2 adults about 400# total with no problems at all. Exceptionally light, solidly built, incredibly long-lasting and stable, BIC boats have built a solid reputation in the world of leisure boating.
Light weight, easy to transport, giving you excellent glide when you row, it can also be fitted with either a thermal or electric motor. The catamaran hull shape of the Sportyaks 213 and 245 gives them much more stability than all flat or V hulls. As soon as the weight is off-centre, a V-hull becomes unstable and dangerous, unlike the double catamaran shape hull of the Sportyak 245, which provides high stability and therefore prevents capsizing. The Sportyak 213 and the Sportyak 245 are light which is an essential characteristic for a boat that is most of the time carried by hand and loaded onto roof racks. The Sportyak 213 and the Sportyak 245 are made of polyethylene which makes them virtually indestructible.
The Sportyak 245 is fitted with two wide rollers for easy handling over beaches, banks and jetties. The rowing seat is fitted with integral "glove compartments", and the carry handles and other openings make it easy to fit an anti-theft cable around the boat.

It packs a lot of bang for its buck and features conveniences you’d typically have to pay a lot more for. Two rod holders allow you to take a break from your rod and reel while getting a drink or stretching.
The boat supports up to 462 pounds of weight, while being light enough to be powered by a small outboard or just an electric trolling motor. Choose this boat and you’ll never miss a catch again because of leaving your spot to find gear. First, the boat has two carrying handles for getting this lightweight boat to the water with ease. It offers all the convenient accessories and extras one would hope for and provides all of this for one super-affordable price. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. I had one just like in your picture, some ahole stole it, but anyway, they're great for private ponds and small lakes and I had a rack on top my mustang, the crappy one with the hatch back, that I would put it on. Minn Kota, battery with one of those fancy battery boxes, and 2 swivel seats for around $800.00 and I wouldn't take for it. This mid sized dinghy combines the best features of those other legendary boats that are the BIC 252 and the Sportyak. This is a major advantage for hunting, fishing or ferrying equipment over to an anchored boat. Even if a very violent impact made a hole on the outside hull, the inner hull would provide sufficient flotation to get back to shore.


It is thanks to their double hull structure that even though they are very light, there has been no compromise on safety aspects. Several carry-handles have been positioned around the Sportyak 245 to facilitate its beach-launching and handling.
The wheels are integrated into the design of the hull and don't in any way affect its performance on water.
The flat rear design was also designed for simple, safe upright storage, taking up less floor area.
These prices are quoted for collection from our factory, a delivery charge is applicable if delivery is required.
This is a spacious boat and you can pack in several people plus gear, tackle, and snacks as the boat supports weight up to 426 pounds. Some of the many features the Sun Dolphin includes are two swivel fishing chairs which  provides the ultimate in visibility. The boat is built of impact-resistant Ram-X ™ material, a multi-layer material exclusive to Pelican boats. The boat also features two fishing road holders, so your hands can take a break from the pole now and then, as well as two drink holders and two swivel fishing chairs. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. The Sportyak 245 can comfortably accommodate three people who can, if necessary change sides without any risk of capsizing. That means you can adjust to any size oarsman for efficient rowing without compromising balance.
This shape with flat lateral sections gives also an exceptional glide, with an efficient anti-drift. The Intruder features bench seats and four vertical fishing rod holders, perfect for a day at the lake. Six storage components– three within reach of each chair, allow you to fish while searching for the perfect tackle or lure. I use one to troll and fish as far as I want to go and I hook up the fresh one to come back.
The durable hull is made of Pelican’s® proprietary RAM-X™ multi-layer material that is highly impact resistant and features a UV-protected finish.
The boat is also equipped with multiple storage compartments for storing bait, tackle, beverages, and other fishing gear.
I have a #40 thrust transom mount motor which really pushes it quite well for the return to my pick up spot.
The boat is also prewired for electric trolling motors and includes two mounts on the bow and stern. The seats are comfortable enough and sit high enough to make it easier to fish than sitting on a bench seat in a flat. For carrying weight and promising speed this boat has a lot of potential once a motor is added. Right now I am looking for a 2.5hp motor to power it other than just using my trolling motor.
However, mobility inside is limited and if you don't have enough weight in it the wind will blow it around a bit.
The boat also features carrying handles for making transportation from your vehicle to the water hassle-free. This boat is excellent for one person and great for two experienced fishermen that are not over the weight limit.
