    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 4.2 out of 5★ by 25reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Just what we needed. My daughter and I carried this boat to the back of my small truck, loaded it up and off we went to the nearest lake. Our biggest worry was whether it would hold the 65 pound battery we bought for the new electric motor. Well, it's perfect. For the two of us, it is perfect.The seats are comfortable, they slide forward and backward with little effort. It glides through the water with the little 35 lb thrust electric motor. So quiet, so lovely. We had the most lovely day.The design was really thoughtful. All around the rim of the boat is perfect for holding the tackle, our lunch box, our drinks.My fish finder plugs in up front, very handy. A place to tie the anchor up front. I think we will get another small anchor for the back for more stability while bottom fishing. This boat is so lite our back end was swaying in the wind.This boat is perfect for two. Very stable. Very easy. I couldn't be more pleased. 06/08/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Good deal Had one before and loved it. I went to a bigger boat and sold the old one. Now I'm retired and needed to down size so I purchased a new one from Walmart. Seats are improved and the new one seems a little lighter. Shipping was less than a dollar and unbelievably fast. Very pleased looking forward to a lot of good times. As far as cons as far as I'm concearned they don't exist. 06/29/2012
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Excellent little boat for small lakes & ponds This is a great little boat for small lakes, ponds & calmer bodies of water. Good for me and my grandson to go fishing in the local area. Fits in the back on my Caravan with the boat seats laying down in the boat floor. Lite weight for easy loading & unloading. The trolling motor was just right to running around the lake and finding the good spots. This is all you need if you're not looking for a big boat for fishing, skiing, or running the rivers. Just easy going and relaxing with the swivel seats that adjust as you need to. 07/21/2012
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by I love the boat but seem to be having trouble finding extra seats since the used one I bought had none. 10/26/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Bought this boat for my wife. She said " I like it". That's good enough for me. We have had it on the water 2 times with a 30 pound thrust trolling motor. Works great. Now for the bad part. Ordered one and when it arrived (delivered after dark), discovered the hull had a fork lift hole in the bottom. Had to return it to the store and order another. It also arrived with damage but with help from Walmart customer service and kl industries we got the necessary parts for repair and this Christmas present was presented on time for Christmas. I would buy another boat like this one when my wife wears this one out. The boat fits into the bed of my truck but the tail gate can not be closed. It is light enough for two people to move easily but to big/bulky for one person to move with out having to drag it on the ground. 01/22/2013
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by Shipped with crack in hull. Not blaming Walmart. I purchased this 2 man Sportsman Fishing Boat online from I found the price to be better than almost all online retailers, and it came with free shipping.When my order was initially completed, and I received correspondence from the shipping company, I was a little taken back by how long it would take for the boat to arrive at my house.It was about 3 weeks from the day I placed my order, until it arrived at my house. I am not complaining, I just felt that was a little long this day and age. Especially when the item was said to be in stock. I took it with a grain of salt, as it is an item well over 100 lbs, and it was getting shipped for free. So, I was fine with it.After waiting for what seemed an eternity(I wanted to catch some bass!), I received confirmation of the date and time the boat would be delivered. I was pretty psyched.The boat was dropped off at a non designated time. I got home from work and saw the boat in my lawn, it was covered in shipping plastic, and everything looked fine. It rained the next two days. On the the third day, I was ready to set the boat up, and possibly take it out. Upon removal of the shipping plastic, I noticed a large hole in the front, left side of the boat. My heart dropped.The shell of this boat is an extremely hard plastic. It was as plain as day that a forklift had gone through the front of the boat, and then the boat was just resealed with more shipping plastic to cover it up. A puncture like this wouldn't happen from just normal shipping, or even dropping the boat. I called the shipping company immediately and got a voice mail. I remembered it was a holiday, and obviously realized they wouldn't be there. I figured I would just attempt to try and call Walmart customer service to see if they could resolve anything, or help me in anyway. I actually got through to somebody(even on a holiday). I can't stress enough how helpful the woman on the other line was. She could probably tell from my tone I was slightly annoyed and upset(I was a bout to begin a vacation from work, and really wanted to do some fishing), and attempted to help me out. Whomever she was(somewhere out in Colorado) was easily one of the best customer service reps I have ever dealt with in my entire life. Thank you.So while I don't have a working boat, I feel almost 110% assured that this problem will be fixed.My quick impressions of the boat were that it seemed to be of suitable build quality, and perfect for hitting those small ponds that the big boats can't get to.Its just a shame that somebody chose to destroy the item, cover it up, and ship it out as is.Hopefully my review score will be better once I receive a working product. 09/03/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Will hold over 500 lbs nice for ponds. 05/17/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent pond boat ! I have a pond on my property that is about 3/4 acre. It has a nice stock of crappie, bass ( large mouth) and brim. I have not been able to fish the whole pond because the banks on 2 sides are steep. I was looking for a Jon boat when my father in law told me to check out this 2 man sportsman boat. Boy am I glad I did. I put a 40 lb thrust trolling motor and a large deep cycle battery on it . I now fish my whole pond and its great ! This boat may be small but it is really stable on the water and the swivel seats are very nice. The only thing that I would suggest is putting locking pins in the seat rails to keep the seats from sliding forward or back when you are adjusting your position. Other than that, this is the best small boat around. 08/12/2013
