When looking for a sport fishing yacht, there are many options from which one can choose. Sport fishing yachts are built with both luxury and sport in mind. The types of sport fishing boats include small, medium and large yachts. These can include recreation or competitive fishing yachts. Many of these yachts offer luxurious amenities such as multiple sleeping cabins, recreation and dining areas and on-board entertainment.

Recreational sport fishing yachts typically are 25-70 feet (7.6-21.3 m) in length. These types of sport fishing yachts generally have at least one sleeping cabin but can also have multiple sleeping cabins. The recreational sport fishing yachts are generally for those who are not into competitive sport fishing but rather engage in the sport for fun. These fishing boats generally have powerful on-board engines that can handle the deep sea. This type of fishing boat can have more than a dozen reels working and nets to catch the fish.

These yachts usually have large open cockpits at the stern. This allows for good visibility. The entertainment available on recreation sport fishing boats can range from the very basic entertainment systems to very high-end systems. These boats are created for the combination of fishing and entertaining experiences side by side. These yachts can travel great distances and are used to travel the seas as well as catch fish.

Competition sport fishing boats are designed to compete in sport fishing tournaments. These sport fishing yachts are built for catching a large amount of fish. They have lines that can pull heavy fish such as marlin. The general speed of these fishing boats are 25-30 miles per hour (about 40-50 km/hr), and they typically are built to accommodate low fuel consumption. These types of fishing boats can also be used as smaller commercial fishing boats because of the amount of fish that they can catch.

These competition sport fishing yachts tend to be built for strength rather than speed. Fiberglass typically is used in construction of these boats. Competition boats generally have a box fit system to keep the balance between the deck and the hull. They are usually equipped with high-end navigation systems and communication devices for standard and emergency communication. Most competition boats are built with optimal fishing capacity in mind and tend to carry a higher class of fishing equipment than recreational sport fishing yachts.
