Default What are YOUR favorite top 5 Aluminum deep V boat brands?

Really curious peoples top deep V boat makers, say from the last 20 years. I'm confident Lund will be #1 on many, but really interested in some of the others.

I'm in the market for a most likely newer used deep V to replace my 175 Alumacraft, and just wondering what people have had good luck with.

Thanks.

I would consider new if I found the right deal, but I'd like a 16-18 foot V and would like to be out the door for under $23K, so most the decent new boats are above my current budget.

This is my opinion and is just that. A lot of great boats
#1. Lund
#2 Alumacraft
#3 G3
#4 Smokercraft
#5 Crestliner

Lowe, Pricecraft, Mirrorcraft to name a few, I have had many of these and rode in a lot also. Layout is what I look for more than brand. I love my Crossover but many good choices. You will pay for it and should buy what works for your type of fishing! Have fun checking them all out😀

Who makes War Eagle boats? Those boats look pretty slick.

I would also add the Kingfisher boat to your short list. Check out the Kingfisher 2025 Flex Tiller.
