Opinions on Triumph boats?

Recommended Posts

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!

    • Actually ZachD Leech does like this and nice job on the meat. 😎   Leech was just ribbing a few guys waving their big penis grills around and they got all chard about it.   Some of the best Jerk BBQ in the world comes out of a garbage can grill!  So it's not what you got or how big it is. It's what you can do with it.  😉   Keep posting whatcha make. 🙂        
    • Now I just have to pick up the sear box Haha forget leach 😀   Maybe he will approve since I got my SG for 340 bucks
    • Going camping finally for the first time this season this weekend so I rolled a breakfast fatty to take along. I plan to smoke it on my $50 over-priced pellet smoker that Leech doesn't approve of for some reason. I'll try to remember to take some pics.....    
    • If you ever have a hard time controlling temps with that controller you can always switch it out with a Savannah Stoker. https://www.savannahstoker.com/collections/frontpage/products/savannah-stoker-pellet-grill-control-system
    • LOL, you probably have more money into grills and smokers than I do.....
    • Just picked up a camp chef SG the other week pretty stoked about it  
    • I bought a boat before this season the guy I bought it from never transferred it in his name and registration was set to expire.  I had all the registration cards and what not I simply just made my own bill of sale from the "original" owner and scribble his name the best I could from his registration card. The trailer title was easy because the old owner filled out the seller info already and the guy I bought it from never filled out the buyer so I just had to put my info in.   I wasn't about to go track down the original guy when he lived 2 hours away from me. What is the worst that could happen
    • You will probably need that many to make sure you have one that works 😁. The last grill I bought was a top of the line charbroil with the side burner yadda yadda. Nearly $600.  Lasted barely two years with half the burners no longer working right and finally the grates were a rusted mess and it was replaced by a pellet grill. 
    • It's the same form whether the boat is titled or just registered. How long is the boat? 16' or longer or if there was a loan on it when new it would be titled. The form is just the starting point, since Homeland Security took an interest in boat ownership transfers several years ago it is not an easy process.
