Our Mission

Smart Boat Buyer is here to provide you with boat reviews, general boating knowledge & boat shopping tips to help you find the perfect boat. We cover pontoon boats, bowriders, jet boats, center consoles, ski boats, all things boating. Once you find that perfect boat, we educate you on the top boating accessories, boat maintenance tips and everything you need to know to enjoy your time on the water.

If you are new to boating, we suggest you start with this article.  “Where Do I Begin” is a great place to start to help you narrow down the type of boat to best suit your needs.  If you have a large family and boat on smaller bodies of water, you might want to look at Pontoon Boats.  If you enjoy watersports, you should take a look at Bowriders or Jet Boats.  Maybe you like the idea of overnighting on your boat, just like a camper on the water.  In this case, we recommend looking at Cruisers or Cuddy Cabins.  Or maybe offshore fishing is a dream of yours.  Then you will definitely want to start with Center Consoles or Bay Boats.

After you narrow down the category of boat type, check out our boat reviews.  We will give you written walkthru’s on some of the most popular boats on the market today including Chaparral, Robalo, Harris Pontoons, Berkshire Pontoons and more!  This will help you narrow down the boat model which best fits your needs and budget.

Once you find the perfect boat, you will need to know how to use and take care of your boat.  Check out our articles on Boating Accessories and Water Toys.  You will also need to know about the required maintenance on your boat, so be sure to read up on boat maintenance as well.  Good Luck and Happy Shopping!
