1. Sun Tracker Party Barge 22 Sport Fish

The Sun Tracker Party Barge 22 Sport Fish, as per the moniker, is a perfect companion for enjoying the sun and fishing over the waters with large families. This pontoon boat is powered by a 115hp Mercury four-stroke engine that’s powerful enough for most newbie anglers. Other notable features include a fully carpeted deck, and Bimini top that’s there to get you under shade when you need it.

2. Tahoe Q7 SF

The Tahoe Q7 SF is another family hauler that gets massive attention in salvage boat auctions. It’s one of the best fish- and ski- boats with a long list of standard features, including aft fishing chairs, an aerated livewell, and raised casting decks that makes fishing easier and the boat safer for small children. The feature that separates the Tahoe Q7 SF from the rest is its 190 hp 4.3-liter MerCruiser stern-drive engine that generates ample power to help you tow things and take advantage of activities such as skiing.

3. Sea-Doo 180 Challenger

If you are fan of speed, the Sea-Doo 180 Challenger is made for you. Ride it in to get a taste of agility and grace over water. Propelled by a 255 hp Rotax E-TEC engine, the Sea-Doo 180 Challenger boasts a top speed of 46 mph and offers controls at slow speed, which only a few of its competitors can match – thanks to its thrust feature. The Sea-Doo 180 Challenger seats eight people, and comes with features such as bow lounge that converts into a sun lounge, and a trailer.

4. Stingray 195CS

The Stingray 195CS is a notch above the Sea-Doo 180 Challenger when it comes to speed, at 58 mph. Available at a price similar to the Sun Tracker Party Barge 22 Sport Fish, this cuddy cabin is one of the best packages in terms of acceleration and control. The Stingray 195CS, in its 19-foot-6-inch length and 7-foot-7-inch beam, accommodates a number of features, including seats with 36-ounce foam-backed PreFix vinyl that does not stain easily. It is powered by a 220 hp MerCruiser 4.3 MPI sterndrive and comes in a Z-plane hull design.

5. Nautic Star 190RG

When it comes to a center console that is easy to maintain, the Nautic Star 190RG rings a bell in most minds in salvage boat auctions. Equipped with a 35-gallon fuel tank, it helps you travel long distances in just one time fueling. The Nautic Star 190RG comes with a forward flush deck that makes it easier for fishing. It does not have a fiberglass liner like you find in glossier finished boats, due to which weighs and costs less. The Nautic Star 190 RG is loaded with all the standard fishing amenities. It can cruise up to a speed of 39.6 mph.
