Opinions on Triumph boats?

9 posts in this topic

I've been looking for a Ranger Reata, Crestliner Sportfish, or Lund Fisherman and I came across a Triumph 191 Fish and ski. I don't know a lot about them, apparently they're made from a special plastic type material, not fiberglass.

Anyone have any opinions on them, good or bad.

Looks like a nice rig. Do you know how they're priced? I may take a look if they're in my price range.

I was looking through my paper from last weekend. I think some of the local Lund and Ranger dealers had a good deal advertised on a Ranger Reatta. 28k for 1850 with Yamaha 150 (>10k off)? I always thought they were priced higher.

Seems like a good deal to me. Similarly sized Lunds were priced more or comparable.

Trimphs HSOforum lists it at just over $40k with the Yamaha 150 and some other options. Which I can't believe. At that price I'd take the ranger for sure.

I'm not looking at buying new, I saw a one owner 2004 for sale that has peaked my intrest.

I looked at their HSOforum as well and it looks like a very tough and well made boat. I'd say it's worth a look and a test drive if the asking price is in your budget. Be sure to crawl in and under everything to see the workmanship in the rigging. That's a sign of care and good manufacturing process.

I looked into them a few years ago, they were called "Logic" boats at that time. Then I nearly bought a 17 footer a couple years ago while looking for a center console. They get fair reviews on the boat sites...pluses would be toughness, lower cost vs. gel coated boats of similar quality; minuses...hulls tend to warp sometimes, finish isn't as smooth as gel coat, general fit and finish isn't top shelf. Even so, I'd have bought the one I looked at for the price, but it was a size smaller than I was looking for.

there tough, you can beat them with a bat, and nothing is goign to happen to them. You dont have to have a bigger motor on them either, becuase they plan faster then fiberglass. There a awesome reort boat, and alot of the resorts up north and in canada are using them becuase they last forever!

    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice.
