Choosing between Tracker boats can a little bit overwhelming, especially for a first-time Tracker boat buyer. Here are some tips to help you prioritize what to look for when shopping for Tracker boats.
Tracker boats have long been a favorite among fishermen, though modifications are constantly being made on different models. A new favorite aspect of Tracker boats is the Revolution hull, which is designed to cut through waves and make a boat ride smoother.
When choosing a Tracker boat, keep in mind your priorities. Commonly included on Tracker boats are fish finders, trolling motors (with foot pedals to operate) and outboard motors. Custom trailers are a part of every Tracker boat, as is a live well (which will keep your fish fresh; this is especially handy during a fishing tournament).
Take size into account when choosing your Tracker boat. Tracker boats can seat anywhere from two to four people, depending on the model.
Once you've decided what you're looking for, head out to a boat show. Not only is this a fun way to spend a day, you'll get a good idea of what's standard in boats. A little hands-on learning can also help you to narrow down your boat buying decision. Don't go to a boat show planning to buy a boat; just go to learn. Tracker is known for having a nationally published price meaning (unless you're buying used) the price isn't exactly negotiable. Some consider this frustrating, while others are glad to know they're getting the same deal as everyone else.
Keep in mind that Tracker boats aren't meant for speed, so although you may enjoy taking it out on the lake for a little rest and relaxation, you're not going to be able to pull a tube or water skier on it.
