Five Great Boats You Can Buy at Bass Pro Shops

Hit the water this summer in a new boat from Bass Pro Shops Boating Center. There you will find a variety of makes and models suitable for bass fishing, recreational riding, water sports and general freshwater fishing. Whether you’re looking for a new or used boat, you can filter your online search by make, tracking, price, length and more. You will also receive the nearest Bass Pro Shops location to view the boat in person.

Notable brands offered at the Boating Center include Tracker, Tahoe, Nitro, Regency, and Mako. Popular sellers include bass boats, pontoon boats, bowriders and deep V boats for general freshwater fishing.

Here are some of our favorites, along with what each boat is best for.

Best Bass Boat: 2023 Nitro Z20 Pro

If you’re looking for the best bass boat money can buy, consider the new Nitro Z20 Pro. It’s a premium boat for the serious angler who wants all the extra features on the water. Let’s start with the powerful 225hp Mercury engine that defines this boat fast. The heavier fiberglass hull won’t give you a problem with that engine nudging you around and you’ll be jumping from place to place in no time. The boat is just over 20 feet long and just under 8 feet wide.

As mentioned, this boat comes loaded with all the bells and whistles, including a gimbal mounted Lowrance HDS Live 9 fish finder in the bow and a flush mount Lowrance HDS Live 9 fish finder in the console. The NEMA network enables connectivity between all electronics. The Z20 Pro also comes equipped with a Lowrance Ghost trolling motor, a 40 amp battery charger and an extra trolling motor battery.

We could go on and on with all the great specs on this boat, but the only thing you need to know is this: The Nitro Z20 Pro is made for the obsessive bass angler who is on the water at every opportunity.

Best Bowrider: 2023 Tahoe 210 Si

Tahoe 210Si

Bowriders are among the most versatile boats and are perfect for family days on the lake. Unlike the other boats on this list, the Tahoe 210 Si is straight inboard. It’s a perfect blend of luxury and practicality. The stern features an oversized, cushioned sundeck for lounging and enjoying your lunch on the water, and the rest of the seats are just as comfortable for pleasure cruising.

The Tahoe is also great for water sports like wakeboarding, waterskiing and wakesurfing. It even has a wakeboard/ski storage compartment in the bottom with a lid lifter. New to this model is an 8-inch multicolor touchscreen digital display. These include a GPS-accurate speedometer and depth gauge, as well as display of engine functions and engine health. With a length of 21 feet and a 250 hp engine, this boat is agile. The included powder coated tandem axle trailer with disc brakes on both axles improves towing performance and overall trail life.

Best Jon Boat: 2023 Tracker Grizzly 1654T Sportsman

Tracker grizzly boat

The Tracker Grizzly is a versatile Jon boat that is great for hunting and fishing. At just over 17 feet, the Grizzly is a year-round boat for many nature lovers who hunt fish in the spring and summer and duck in the fall and winter.

This no-fuss aluminum Jon boat features a 40hp tiller engine and large deck. It features a lockable rod box on the side and plenty of storage underneath for tackle or bait. The bow features a flat surface for installing a trolling motor and electronics. It is also equipped with a single-axle trailer and a submersible lighting system. Hunters can opt for the grassland or forest camouflage pattern. And don’t be afraid to get creative with a DIY duck blind during hunting season – this boat can be exceptional in the swamp.

Bass boat with the best value for money: 2023 Tracker Pro 170

Tracker Pro 170 bass boat

There’s only so much a Jon boat can do, and a fully kitted out bass boat with all the trimmings is too expensive. The Tracker Pro 170 is a middle ground and a great choice for bass anglers looking to upgrade their gear without looking like they’re stepping into the Bassmaster Classic.

This 16ft 8″ aluminum tracker is equipped with a 50hp Mercury engine and everything you need to get on the water. It features a 15-gallon livewell and a bow-mounted 45-pound thrust Minn Kota trolling motor. The console has standard features such as speedometer, tachometer and fuel gauge. It also has a 12V socket and a phone holder.

The raised cast decks feature marine grade carpets bow and stern with storage below. The lockable rod case is a nice touch and the two folding casting chairs are convenient for a full day’s fishing. An all-aluminum hull paired with three-inch side walls enhances the structural strength of the entire boat.

Don’t worry about transporting the Pro 170 either. It’s lightweight and comes with a custom-fit single-axle trailer. The carpeted berths make launching easier and add an extra layer of protection to the hull. It features a sturdy winch and tether, but lifting this boat onto the trailer once you take it out of the water won’t be too difficult.

Best pontoon boat: 2023 Sun Tracker Bass Buggy 18 DLX

Pontoon Boat Sun Tracker

Don’t let the name fool you. The Sun Tracker Bass Buggy is a recreational pontoon boat for relaxing on the lake. It is 20 feet long and can accommodate up to eight people. It has everything you would expect from a leisure boat, including a comfortable couch, seats and a Bluetooth stereo with two cushion speakers.

While not specifically designed for fishing, you can certainly wet a fishing line from this boat. It even includes a large rotomoulded bow port box with a livewell. The deck is perfect for casting and has two comfortable fishing seats. It also has ample storage space and multiple rod holders.
