Choosing Your Boat Type Based on Activity Style

Depending on what activities you enjoy on the water, there are different boat types that would work better for you. Today’s blog from Summerset Boat Lifts discusses a few of the most popular water activities at the Lake of the Ozarks, and what boats work best for each.


The Lake of the Ozarks is a great family vacation destination. People of all ages can have a great time just cruising around the lake. There’s something special about being on a boat during a summer at the Lake. Stop off at one of the many local waterfront bars to grab a bite to eat and a cold drink! If your favorite lake activity is simply cruising on the water, enjoying the wind in your face and the sun overhead, a pontoon, tritoon or deck boat are the best options for you. These are great options that will hold the entire family!


While some pontoons and tritoons can be used for tubing and waterskiing, a deck boat or a ski boat may be a better option. If you're wanting to go really fast, a speed boat is what you want! These all have the power to pull anything from your inflatables to someone waterskiing or wakeboarding. Personal watercraft also offer plenty of enjoyment, whether you’re alone or with others. Some personal watercraft even have enough power to pull inflatables too! If you’re into big boats and racing, there are 2 big annual summer events that you can either participate in or watch from the comfort of your own boat.


If something a little less adrenaline rushing is more your style, the Lake of the Ozarks is a great place for fishing. In our waters, you will find crappie, bass, bluegill, spoonbill, catfish, walleye, and more! The fishing conditions are great almost year round. There are fishing boats designed specifically for this activity. From aluminum fishing boats to bass boats, you'll be able to find one to fit your needs.

Once you’ve determined the type of boat you want, you’ll need to find a boat lift to match it. Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks offers the best is boat lifts.
