Sportfish yachts are powerboats built to arrive at fishing grounds fast, with a hull design capable of cruising through any sea conditions. Some sportfish yachts are equipped with tournament fishing options such as tuna towers, kill boxes, large tackling stations, ice makers, and live bait wells. The interior is often furnished with sleeping berths, a galley for cooking, and plumbing for convenience. Sportfish boats can range in price from as low as $90,000 to upwards of a few million — it just depends on if it’s new or used, size, model, year, and amenities.
