If you happen to find yourself on this site you are probably a bit like me. You love fishing, boating, and being outdoors, and you are probably always on the hunt for your next, perfect boat. Even when I am not looking to buy a new boat, I am looking to buy a new boat.
However, I recently articulated a problem that for years I hadn’t been able to pinpoint – It’s really freaking hard to find, see, and keep track of currently available, top quality, pre-owned fishing boats in one place online.
Previously, options for searching pre-owned boats included wading through tons of crappy jet skis, pontoon and jon boats on craigslist, trying to keep up with a forum site that has classifieds but is not really made for that purpose, or you needed to index a million little boat dealer websites to hopefully get lucky and find that one unicorn. Even a site like Boat Trader has so much going on I have never felt it very effective at narrowing my search.
The idea of TowerBoats is that we handle the massive weeding out effort for you, by design. We limit ad posts to leading brands in flats, bay and center console categories, and we are accomplishing this in two ways.
This first is by simply restricting postings to pre-selected brands that are known for quality, fishability, longevity and have a extensive loyal customer base.
The second way is our namesake. My experience is that beyond the cost of a boat, motor, and trailer the most well maintained fishing boats come from owners who have made significant aftermarket investments in their rig. Generally, these investments coincide with the better boat brands too.
So, every boat you see on site will have a distinct aftermarket improvement: A flats boat with a polling platform, a bay boat with a dual control half-tower, a center console with a T-Top and built in radar and outriggers, for example.
We welcome your feedback and hope you enjoy a simplified searching experience that helps you find that next great boat in no time at all.
