There are many different types of power boats in a variety of different sizes and uses, however we are going to just focus on the top eight most popular type of power boats. Once you decide on the type of power boat you want to buy, you can choose a boat stand for storage and servicing when it is out of the water. The Brownell Boat Stand System has a wide variety motor boat stands and high quality TLC boat pads for you to choose from to protect your new vessel. You can also use the Boat Stand Selector on the Brownell website to help you choose a boat stand that will provide you with the best protection.
BASS BOAT – One of the most well-known types of power boats is the Bass Boat. Typically between 14-23 feet in length, these motor boats are used for fishing in freshwater, such as rivers and inland lakes. Shorter Bass Boats can be stored on trailers and boat racks when not in-use, but larger vessels can choose a boat stand from the Brownell Boat Stand System by plugging in the length, beam and draft, and you will get a full shopping list of motor boat stands and high quality TLC boat pads that are designed to properly support your boat.
CRUISER BOAT – Large enough for spending the night out on the boat, Cruisers range between 21-45 feet in length. These boats have a cabin in the bow of the boat. Depending on the size, they can also have space for a galley, several berths and a private bathroom area. Motor boat stands are available from Brownell in hot dip galvanized or traditional blue painted American steel.
DECK BOAT – While similar to a pontoon boat, the deck boat features a wide beam and a V-shaped hull, which has better performance than pontoons. Plenty of seating is available in the open deck, making this a great choice for families or as a party boat. Between 25-35 feet in length, these boats are typically powered by an outboard motor or a stern drive. Made from fiberglass or aluminum, you can choose a boat stand and high quality TLC boat pads from the Brownell website’s Boat Stand Selector.
DOWNEAST CRUISER BOAT – Native to New England, the home of the Brownell Boat Stand System, this boat is more well-known in the marine industry as a “lobster boat.” Built for fishing and off-shore cruising, they feature a cabin with berths, an enclosed head and even a dining area. When it comes time to choose motor boat stands for storage, maintenance or repairs, choose stands from the Brownell Boat Stand System either online or by contacting an authorized dealer near you.
EXPRESS FISHERMAN BOAT – This high-speed boat is used to quickly take fishermen to off-shore fishing spots. Rigged for off-shore fishing, these boats feature fish fighting areas, large cockpits and have limited cruising accommodations. Sizes of these boats vary, but you can still chose a boat stand from Brownell with information regarding the length, beam and draft.
SKI BOAT – These boats range between 16-24 feet in length and are great for family water skiing trips. Lots of great seating and tie downs, ski lockers and elevated tow bars.

HIGH PERFORMANCE BOAT – These boats have a high power-to-weight ratio and are built for speed. They can typically seat between two and six passengers. High speed horsepower outboard motors are usually the choice for these motor boats, however stern drives and surface drives are also often used.
