Best Reasons Why You Should Own a Boat

Whether you love deep-sea fishing, bass fishing, or the idea of launching a boat on the dam for some family tubing or water-skiing fun, there are many benefits to owning a boat. We’re talking fun, recreation, excitement and exploring the Great Outdoors! Here are our top reasons why you should buy a boat…

Fishing Adventures

If you’re an avid fisherman, with a skippers licence, there’s nothing quite like launching and heading out to sea on a deep sea cat or deep sea mono and, in KwaZulu-Natal, you won’t have to look far for some awesome fishing spots! KZN’s northern coast, with its warmer waters, is home to some of the best predator fish – sharks, mackerel, rays, kingfish, sand-sharks, and skates – and just off the coast of Durban, there’s a spectacular deep sea and off-shore fishing playground for anglers looking to catch species such as Englishman seabream, couta, geelbek, yellowfin tuna, dorado, and Natal snoek. If fresh-water fishing is more up your alley, go for a bass boat – with its low-to-water design, oxygenated live-wells, and sneaker motors, it makes fishing at your favourite dam a pleasure.  Seawater or freshwater, for those who take the sport of fishing seriously, there are plenty of bass fishing competitions to enter year round – and you’ll certainly want your own boat for that!

Family fun

If you’re looking to head outdoors and spend some quality time with family and friends, you can’t go wrong with a ski-boat. Kids of all ages will thoroughly enjoy boating adventures on this style of boat – it’s a perfect way to escape those everyday stressors. Ski-boats and camping go hand-in-hand, so why not set up a tent and spend a fun-filled weekend sunset cruising, fishing, knee-boarding, tubing, and water-skiing? Done this way, boating weekends are affordable compared to other family getaways – so buying a boat actually makes financial sense!

Years of joy

Boating really is one of the very best ways to relax and unwind in nature. And with South Africa’s mild climate, we get to use our boats almost all year round. Properly cared for and maintained, there’s no reason why your boat shouldn’t provide you with years of fun, as well as maintain its resale value – making it a worthwhile investment!
