Why Add Your Review To BoaterInput?
Help Other Boaters Plus Earn A Chance To Win A $100 Gift Card!
BoaterInput was developed to provide honest and unbiased information to help boaters purchase, equip and maintain their boats. We do this by gathering and posting reviews from actual boat owners – regardless of whether they are “good” or “bad”. This is different from other sites that might only show favorable reviews for the products they manufacture or sell, or editorial “opinions” that are really designed to promote a particular product (often for some sort of compensation).
In order to deliver this valuable and unbiased information, we rely on boaters like you to share your input. If you are a boat owner, here are some key reasons why you should consider adding a review:
It is quick and easy.It takes less than 5 minutes to post a review in most cases.
You are helping other boaters.Chances are, there are others considering buying the very product you own. By sharing your experiences, you will be helping a fellow boater.
Receive valuable information and rewards. When you post a review, you will have the opportunity to sign up for our monthly newsletter to receive our latest articles/research reports and potentially participate in boater studies – many of which offer incentives (typically Amazon or Bass Pro Shops gift cards) to participate.
Chance to win a $100 gift certificate. Throughout 2023, we will be giving away a $100 Amazon.com gift certificate for every 100 reviews received. So, the more products you review, the greater your chances of winning! See the official sweepstakes rules for details.
We currently collect reviews for boats, engines, trolling motors, fishing finders and marine batteries. If you own any of these items, please consider posting a review for the benefit of the boater community.
Thank you in advance for sharing your input and helping to build one of the most valuable resources for boaters on the internet.
what our members are saying about their boats
“This boat gives you a fast, dry, and smooth ride.” (Overall Rating: 10)
Milton K., 2015 Skeeter ZX225
“Wide beam and large cockpit. Love the open feel.” (Overall Rating: 9)
Rich G., 1998 Tiara Yachts 3500 Open
“The Formula brand is a well-built boat that uses high end components and has things such as fume detection for the bilge and other items like that are not seen on other brands. The seats are very comfortable and both interior and exterior are holding up extremely well. The boat handles great and has a very solid ride.” (Overall Rating: 10)
Capt Stubbing, 2005 Formula 37 PC
“Not many people are very familiar with Bryant but they build a quality boat that is a bit more affordable than some of the other premium names. I have had this boat 5 years now and it looks great and rides well.” (Overall Rating: 9)
Jerry M., 2013 Bryant 210
“It’s the best all-weather boat I’ve owned for lakes. Handles just about anything that’s marginal to get back to the ramp safely. And plenty of storage room, actually it could be too much room at times.” (Overall Rating: 10)
Howard B., 2015 Nitro Z7
“When I bought it , it was probably the best deal one could find for a fiberglass bass boat with absolutely no wood in it. The boat and Yamaha 70 have performed flawlessly for 12 years.” (Overall Rating: 10)
Jerome K., 2008 Stratos 176XT
“This model falls into the category that most salt water fishermen refer to as “Bay Boat”. It has a center console which provides tremendous stability and a deeper hull than a “flats” boat for smoother ride on choppy water. The boat is made for fishing and has very few comfort features for cruising. It is not my favorite hull because it draws a little more water than some of the other shallow water bay boats such as Pathfinder.” (Overall Rating: 9)
Ken L., 2005 Key West 196 Bay/Reef
“Great boat, solid ride… great bay boat for fishing. Fast with Yamaha 300!!” (Overall Rating: 10)
Rich N., 2023 Robalo Cayman 246 SD
“Excellent high-end Pontoon Boat with a 400hp R Mercury outboard Racing motor. Too nice to be a Pontoon Boat. Rear twin electric recliners.” (Overall Rating: 9)
Don M., 2019 Avalon Excaliber
“We had a lot of fun using this boat the past summer. it can accommodate nine persons, has comfortable seating for all passengers, is easy to board for both passengers and water skiers, handles well in rough water, is easy to launch and dock, looks great on the water and drew lots of compliments from all who saw it on the water.” (Overall Rating: 10)
John S., 2022 Tahoe T18
“Great boat and a great price point. Carolina flare and deadrise makes for an exceptionally dry boat which I would expect from any Carolina boat builder that builds primarily for the Atlantic. This is not a shallow draft boat for its size, however….I would say it drafts in 12″ +.” (Overall Rating: 8)
Rich N., 2020 Kencraft 218 Bay Rider
