As of 2016, used aluminum fishing boats can cost $500 or less for basic, bare-bones models without trailers or motors. Large, well-equipped versions can cost well over $100,000.
Aluminum fishing boats run the gamut from a basic rowboat-style structure on up through a 28-foot deluxe craft complete with cabins, sleeping quarters, dual motors and trailers.
If the customer only needs a basic design, a number of used aluminum fishing boats are available for under $500 through sites such as BoatTrader.com and iboats.com. A greater number of boats fit into the $1,500-and-under range. Each listing includes a boat image and details about the boat and whether it includes a motor, seats or trailer.
Users can sort listings on BoatTrader.com by state for added convenience.
