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!

    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
