What Type of Boat Should I Buy This Summer?

Reading Time: 2 mins

Unlike cars, there’s far more to boats than simply getting from A to B. Not only are boats designed to travel, different types can be used for a whole range of activities and occasions.

Are you a keen angler? Do you want somewhere to live? Are you looking for a life of luxury? All of these questions must be answered to find the perfect boat for you. Here we provide you with a brief guide on which boat to choose.


The epitome of luxury, yachts are probably one of the most expensive types of boats you could ever hope to own, but when you’re moored up in Monaco sipping on Champagne or basking in Mediterranean waters and staring out toward the horizon, that expenditure will seem a world away.

Canal Boat

If you’ve decided that the land-lovers life is no longer for you, then what better option is there than buying a canal boat and cruising down the UK’s canals? These boats give you the option of mooring up wherever you want for as long as you want, as well as moving along at a time that suits you. The freedom of living on a canal boat is a great way to escape the humdrum of city life.


Bowriders are extremely popular types of boats for both beginners and experts. These types of boats are incredibly versatile and are perfect for days out with the family cruising or even enjoying some water sports!

Cabin Cruisers

Cabin cruisers are a step up from bowriders as they also accommodate comfortable living quarters for you and the family to habitat. This means that you can head off on weekend adventures on your boat without having to worry about booking yourself into a hotel.
