In the market for a new boat but aren’t sure what kind suits your needs? With so many new models on the market and with new versions of existing models coming out all the time, finding the perfect vessel to suit your requirements can be a daunting task. What kind of hull do you need? What size would work best for your family? Where do you even begin?

You might start by thumbing through the pages of The Ultimate Guide to Motor Boats by Barry Pickthall. The nearly 450-page book covers everything from design to propulsion systems and speed, to an overview of sportfishermen, express cruisers, and go-fasts from some of the top-name builders in the industry, complete with color photos.

Whether you use it as a reference book or as an attractive addition to your coffee table, The Ultimate Guide to Motor Boats is a sure bet. It retails for around $30 and is available at a number of stores nationwide, including WalMart and Barnes & Noble, and is also available online at Amazon.com.
