WILDFOWL's Best Duck Boats for 2013

WILDFOWL's Best Duck Boats for 2013

It wasn't long ago that waterfowlers had only one choice to make when selecting a duck boat: jon or modified-V. In today's world of increasing advancements, hunters are left with a mind-boggling amount of hull designs, options, and add-ons to choose from. The greatest leap in boat designs for 2013 is, unquestionably, the modification of hulls, from structural ribs for durability to massive float pods and drop-decks for functionality. In addition, manufacturers are taking more time to build crafts that perform with popular surface-drive mud motors.

As those motors get larger and heavier, boat builders are finding new ways to compensate for weight and load-bearing requirements, so flat-bottoms can still skate on inches of water. Custom boats are also becoming more desirable and within reach, as builders offer a variety of options on their most popular models. You'll find everything from sneaks to layouts and swamp-busting monsters, all with one common goal: Getting you to the ducks. Check out the best duck boats for this year.
