There are many types of boats you can choose. A large center console boat or small dual console boat are just a few of the numerous options. Many boaters, however, will prefer the ease and convenience of a walkaround boat, which is excellent for fishing as well as leisurely and relaxing boating. Scout is proud to offer some of the best walkaround boats that let you enjoy fishing and entertaining on the water.
What Are They?
Walkaround boats are marked by two specific features. The first is a small cabin, which allows for enclosed relaxation with sleeping quarters—and possibly a small kitchen and dining area, as well as a head (nautical term for bathroom). The second feature is a center console that can be walked around from all angles, allowing for 360-degree fishing as well as the ability to walk from the front of the boat to the back.
What To Look For
When you shop for a walkaround boat, keep an eye out for these important features:
- Fishing Amenities. Look for a craft that gives you plenty of fishing amenities. Above all, these boats are used for angling, which means you need plenty of rod storage, large live wells, and easy access to the water.
- Comfort and Luxury. It’s also useful to have comfort, such as ample seating space and comfortable materials. You might spend hours, or even days out on the water, so make sure there are luxuries to keep you happy.
- Ample Space on the Deck. Part of enjoying a boat is having enough space on the deck so you can actually “walkaround” the boat. Make sure there is enough room so you don’t feel crammed.
