Starcraft Marine carries several types of boats: crossovers, utility, Jon boats, runabout, pontoon, deck and fishing. This marine retailer's inventory includes boats suitable for many lifestyles and budgets. Its products include boats with aluminum and fiberglass hulls and carry warranties.
For recreational use, runabout boats, also called walkaround boats, make a popular choice. They are equipped with a center console that houses the controls, and come with seats for comfortable sitting. People use these boats for many purposes, including fishing, taking day cruises and towing water-skiers. These boats have a wraparound deck in the front, and perform equally well in the ocean and in large bays. Many come with stowaway seating and a cubby, which is useful for towing watersports equipment and saving space.
In addition to runabout boats, crossover boats are popular for recreational boaters. They have an average deck length of 20 feet, and are equipped for towing ropes for water skis and tubes. They feature a platform in the rear, which helps swimmers and water sports enthusiasts enter and exit the water. Some boats have storage spaces for fishing rods as well. As with cars, they come with accessories and add-ons, such as LCD lights, sound systems and more.
Utility boats are ideal for hunting and fishing, while pontoon boats are suitable for calm water boating. Commercial and recreational boaters alike use fishing boats for serious excursions, while small Jon boats are suitable for short-term transportation.
