The Best Tubing Boats for Boaters

Thinking about renting or buying a boat to go tubing this year? Before committing to a purchase, there are a few basic things that are important to know. To identify the right boat, use this handy guide of the top 5 tubing boats that work best for boaters.

Bowriders

As a type of runabout boat, bowriders hold 6 to 10 people with an open bow area. This is a great boat for relaxing on the water with inner tubes or fishing. These types of boats are not made to withstand waves in heavy water, so use a bowrider in inland water locations. If you need a boat for some casual family fun, a bowrider is a great option.

Another great bowrider option is the Regal 1900. This is the only 19-foot bowrider with an award-winning, patented FasTrac hull design. Independent tests have shown the Regal FasTrac to be faster, have better handling, and remain pretty fuel-efficient when compared to other 19s with comparable weight and power. This first-class performer also boasts more beam than other models at 8’3’’. It also comes with a plethora of standard equipment — perfect for towing tubes.

Freshwater Fishing Boats

For fans of freshwater fishing, selecting the right boat that can also tow a tube or two is critical. Ideal for use in ponds, lakes, and other inland bodies of water, freshwater fishing boats come in various sizes, shapes, and designs. 

Note, though, that these types of boats are typically only equipped with enough seating space for 2 or 3 people. Freshwater boats include those in the bass, cuddy, and console categories.

Speed Boats

If you’re a fan of speed (and have some boating experience under your belt), a speedboat is the choice for you. Also known as motorboats, speedboats are powerful vessels that have both an inboard engine and outboard motor for extra oomph. Unsurprisingly, these boats are known for their ability to go fast through the water.

Speedboats of all sizes, designs, and power levels have become increasingly popular over the past few years. These types of boats are great for towing tubes in both freshwater and saltwater. Athletes also often make speedboats their vessel of choice when competing in a variety of water sports.

Pontoon Boats

Typically flat in design, pontoon boats are popular with families because they have lots of space for on-board movement and seating. Equipped with reserve buoyancy, they also usually come with larger decks and extra lounging areas.

Sometimes called “party barges” because of the amount of people that can be on them at once, pontoon boats are great in shallow waters and have more horsepower for towing tubes and water skiers. The best part? Pontoon boats are also usually sold at a lower cost than other similar vessels. If you’re interested in a purchase, check out the Crest II, a great pontoon boat option since 1957.
