Affordable Boat Models for Beginners

What is the best, most affordable starter boat for a beginner? That can depend on your specific needs, but even so, it’s a good bet that a pontoon or a center console are both excellent options for a first-time boat owner on a budget.

Pontoons are an extremely stable, easy to handle boat and they come in a wide range of sizes with an enormous array of options. So, it’s easy to pick the model that best suits both your needs and budget.

Center consoles are also popular with first-time boat buyers largely due to their versatility. These boats can be set up for fishing or with tons of seating and comfort for just cruising the waterways. Their outboard power is ideal for all types of boating and their deep-vee hull offers tremendous stability in varying seas. Center console boats also come in a wide selection of sizes and prices. Gerry’s Marina has both and more!
