Bass boats typically have a low profile and are built to fish with one to three anglers on board. For casual angling, aluminum boats from 16 to 18 feet with horsepower from 25 to 150 are most common, but tournament fishing and guide style boats can be more than 18 feet long with 150 to 250 horsepower. Livewells to keep the catch alive are standard, as is an electric trolling motor on the bow (front of boat). Whether hobbyist or pro-angler, bass boat insurance is as essential to successful fishing as your lures and rods.
Center Console Boats
Center console boats are open fishing boats built sturdy to handle rough offshore waters in pursuit of big game like grouper and mahi mahi. Live bait is kept alive in the baitwell and fish lockers can be insulated to keep fish iced. Center console boats come equipped with an aluminum and canvas t-top to provide shade and rod storage. Several larger center console boats being used for commercial fishing should be equipped with comprehensive commercial marine insurance before setting out to seek the big game.
Trawler boats are designed to move efficiently through the water, minimizing fuel consumption, making them ideal for long distance cruising. Facilities for sleeping, cooking and plumbing provide an opportunity to take multi-day excursions with family and friends.
