A banana boat (or water sled), is an unpowered, inflatable recreational boat meant to be towed. Different models usually accommodate three to ten riders sitting on a larger, main tube and resting their feet on two laterally flanking tubes which stabilize the boat. The main tube is often yellow and banana-shaped.
3. Rebel Fastback – The first “Bass Master Classic” boat. The Rebel Fastback was a state-of-the-art bass boat at its time. Because of a fire at the Flippin, Arkansas Ranger Boats factory, the Fastback was selected as the official competitor’s boat at the very first Bass Masters Classic in 1971.
Cabin cruisers have all the amenities to make cruising, or just spending a weekend aboard in total comfort, a reality. Typically in the 25 - 45’ range, these vessels offer all the essentials of home, including a galley (kitchen), head (toilet), and multiple berths (sleeping accommodations) to accommodate a family or friends.
A catamaran (/ˌkætəməˈræn/) (informally, a "cat") is a multi-hulled watercraft featuring two parallel hulls of equal size. It is a geometry-stabilized craft, deriving its stability from its wide beam, rather than from a ballasted keel as with a monohull sailboat.
A fishing vessel is a boat or ship used to catch fish in the sea, or on a lake or river. Many different kinds of vessels are used in commercial, artisanal and recreational fishing. According to the FAO, there are currently (2004) four million commercial fishing vessels.
A houseboat (different from boathouse, which is a shed for storing boats) is a boat that has been designed or modified to be used primarily as a home. Some houseboats are not motorized, because they are usually moored, kept stationary at a fixed point and often tethered to land to provide utilities. However, many are capable of operation under their own power.
Hydrofoil boats incorporating the use of hydrofoil to help them propel much faster on the water are an attraction that has held the shipping industry for quite some time now. But it has to be noted that these hydrofoil boats are by no means a latest designing.
A jetboat is a boat propelled by a jet of water ejected from the back of the craft. Unlike a powerboat or motorboat that uses an external propeller in the water below or behind the boat, a jetboat draws the water from under the boat through an intake and into a pump-jet inside the boat, before expelling it through a nozzle at the stern.
A pontoon boat is a flattish boat that relies on pontoons to float. These pontoons (also called tubes) contain a lot of reserve buoyancy and allow designers to create massive deck plans fitted with all sorts of accommodations, such as expansive lounge areas, stand-up bars, and sun pads.
