Fishing Downeast Boats For Sale

Many forms of modern powerboats are based on traditional designs that were developed for commercial purposes, and this is true of downeast boats, also called lobster boats (or in the case of their larger, more expensive iterations, lobster yachts). Originally created for catching tasty crustaceans, lobster boats have become popular among recreational boaters for many reasons: their seaworthy design, efficient performance, and appealing traditional looks are all part of the mix. In fact, today far more downeast boats are built for recreational purposes than for commercial use.
Downeast boats commonly have a full cabin including a protected helm with a hard top extending back over at least part of the cockpit, and a V-berth in the bow. This reflects the lobsterman’s need for protection from rough or cold weather and rain, and his need to continue working even when it was raining or blowing. But for a recreational boater, these same traits mean you can run your boat long after the season has ended for those who have open, unprotected boats. This genre of boat also traditionally had an open cockpit, a full keel, and a single-screw inboard propulsion system. But as times have changed, so has the character of the downeast design. While outwardly they may appear more or less that same, today, fewer lobster boats have full keels and many have no keel at all. Their propulsion is often outboard power, instead of the straight inboards of yore. And many lobster boats have extensive seating and/or accessories like wet bars or loungers in the stern. Some things, however, never change. And one constant in the world of lobster boats is the traditional, alluring look of the trunk cabin, hard top, and plumb bow of these classic boats.
