First of all, it should be mentioned that when looking through classified ads you can begin with a broad search, like “watercraft for sale,” or you can get more specific with a search like, “small power boats for sale;” small power boats for sale may also be listed under “mini power boats for sale.” Also, you can go by location, like “mini power boats for sale Long Island NY.”

Power boats are defined simply as boats operated by a motor. There are three different kinds of motors that operate these boats: outboards, inboards, and inboard/outboard. Outboards are connected just off the back of the boat with a lower unit attached to a propeller. Inboards are motors that are completely hidden inside the boat. And, inboard/outboards, also called sterndrives, have the motor located inboard but provide power to the drive unit located outside of the hull.

The term "power boat" then, can vary widely and refer to several different kinds of boats, all of which are likely to be in our main boats category. Here, we are going to concentrate on small power boats.

Small power boats, also called mini power boats for sale, are ideal for recreational boaters, partially because they are considered safer than personal watercraft - the rider's arms and legs are safely inside of the boat. At the same time, small power boats are big enough to be able to accommodate more than one person, which makes them appealing to families.

If, however, you are planning on taking a longer boating trip with your family whereby you will need accommodations adequate for sleeping overnight in the boat, then you may want to take a look at larger power boats for sale instead of small power boats for sale. There is of course also a huge difference in price between small power boats and large power boats; smaller can go as low as under $1,000, while large power boats can be upwards of $38,000.

One of the advantages to going with a small power boat is that it is fairly easy to store, unlike larger boats. Most people are able to simply store the small power boat at their house; however, if you are storing your boat at a marina, sometimes the cost is related to how much space your boat takes up. Obviously, smaller boats mean less money, in this case.

The other main benefit to owning and operating a small power boat is the maneuverability. Because of their smaller size, they are able to make tighter turns at low speeds, and have a wider turning range at higher speeds.

Indeed, small power boats are an excellent choice when looking at boats for sale that your whole family can enjoy. Small power boats for sale can be operated on fresh water or salt water, but they are particularly ideal for lakes and rivers.
