What Is a Good Affordable Boat for First Time Boaters?…

If you are new to boating, finding a boat that makes sense can be overwhelming. With so many boats out there, it’s hard to know what is the best choice – as well as if you can even afford one. Many first-time boat buyers have a misconception that boating is not affordable, however, with the Nautical Ventures financing option, buying a boat can be just like buying a car and in many cases, just as affordable.

The Glastron brand is one of these kinds of boats. With entry level models priced at an average cost of $30,000, Glastron boats offer a wide variety of features that some more expensive brands don’t include. In comparison to other deck boats, such as Pontoon’s which can exceed up to $100,000 in price, Glastron boats have 12 characteristics of deck boats, vs. Pontoon’s which only have 5, out of the 15 measurable points used in the study.
