  • Most popular boat brand on your lake that's not a wakeboat

    Around here the tritons seem to be taking off, what is popular in your area under 150k? I'm especially interested in what any lake of the ozarks or havasu folks have to say.

    Thanks

    Open bow's or deck boats, I'd say Sea Ray or Chaparral. With pontoon's........Bennington.

          At my Canadian getaway (Lake of the Woods) - (in-laws Cabin) Lund and Alumacraft... sport boats - Mastercraft and Malibu.

          On the Illinois River - Lot's of Maxxums and Four Winns. sport boats - we have them all - seeing more MC now but many G23's, A few Moombas and less Tige's.

            They're getting bigger and faster on Havasu and down in the Parker area. No one likes wake board boats, they say the wakes are messing up the shoreline and bouncing their boats around while docked Most of the big go fast boaters don't think their wake is bad, go figure

              2000 acre residential lake in central Minnesota. By far, the most popular boat is apparently made by a company called "Pontoon". Next most popular, in the fiberglass category, would be Larson or Glastron, both of which are made locally less than an hour from here.

                  Gull Lake, Nisswa, Minnesota: Cobalt and Premier Pontoons. The Premier Pontoons that are 25+ feet are rigged with 250hp - 300hp singles all day long and fast! For the last few seasons, I've seen many Premier's rigged with twin 300hp, half dozen or more of them...it's insane.

                  One observation I've made over the years when on numerous different lakes is, whatever they sell in town, is what you see on the water. Case in point, Nisswa Marine is a Cobalt and Premier Pontoon dealer (and Nautique). I'm always surprised that most humans will buy from the dealership that is closest to them (car or boat). Which is good, I guess, but man, we live in a huge country and there are a lot of choices out there if you don't mind a few hour drive to see "what the other guy" is selling...at a better price probably!

                    Cobalts, Rangers and alumicraft, Sea Rays and Pontoons. Everyone seems to be purchasing a pontoon boat!

                      Ya we take our boat up there all the time. Its all about going fast up there. I see maybe 5-10 true wakeboard boats a trip (not including io's with towers added).

                            that's all pretty much everything that's popular out here. I was just wondering if we were missing out on anything good. Lots of tritoon brands in town but I haven't seen anything with twins or anything super high end here yet.

                              Yes I'd say bass boats or pontoons. But plenty of inboards.
                              This forum is amazing with quality people.: I did not think i'd ever own an Inboard. Now I finally have a gorgeous 94 205 I am glad I have ya'll backing me up.
