I’M ON A BOAT! THE BEST PARTY BOATS FOR SUMMER

The Best Party Boats for Summer 20220401 - Party Boats: The wolf of Wall Street 1“Duh! Of course I learned about this boat from Gallantry. I read ALL of their articles. It’s like I already told you, fellas – I’m a Gallantry Man Legend. Any other questions?”

In the immortal words of “Doin’ Time” from Sublime, “Summertime, and the livin’s easy.”

The Best Party Boats for Summer 20220401 - Jump Street 2“Damn straight we got our EDC from Gallantry!”

The good news for all us Gallantry Man Legends is that summertime also happens to be just around the corner and you already know what that means – rallying the squad, maybe popping on a “Sun’s Out Guns Out” tank to let the world know that you mean serious business, and hitting that beautiful blue water for boat day (check out the list of “The Greatest Boat Parties in America” from Thrillist HERE and learn about YACHT WEEK HERE) on a sick party boat loaded with sweet, versatile (and maybe even customizable) features like hot seating, loads of deck space, a swimming platform, a fridge that you can seriously stack, ample storage, a head compartment, a banging sound system, grunt to spare, weather protection, and maybe even some LED lights.

The Best Party Boats for Summer 20220401 - I'm on a Boat 3

I'm on a boat (I'm on a boat) I'm on a boat (I'm on a boat)

Everybody look at me

'Cause I'm sailing on a boat (sailing on a boat)

I'm on a boat (I'm on a boat) I'm on a boat

Take a good hard look at the mother******* boat (boat, yeah)

- “I’m On A Boat” (featuring T-Pain), The Lonely Island

There are seriously a ton of awesome party boats out there just waiting to assist you in making your upcoming Gallantry Man summer your best yet, so if you’re ready to entertain (and be entertained), grab some towels, iron those board shorts, throw on your favorite pair of shades, and get real nautical with it by taking a look at some of the freshest of the fresh…

THE X44 FROM EXPLOSION MARINE

THE X44 FROM EXPLOSION MARINE

A party boat without great deck space is hardly a party boat, which is why you’re going to want to behold the innovative Explosion X44, which fits up to 20 people by utilizing a triple rig of 350 hp outboards and a cockpit that features 2 square meters of 2 independently movable retractable tables, both of which deliver more than enough space to sun, dine with friends, watch television, or even play some no-joke ping pong. However, the real party begins when you expand the foldout section, a move that actually increases the beam by more than a meter while increasing the craft’s stability. With an owner’s cabin that is decked out with a 2-meter bed, wardrobes, drawers, a dressing table, and a TV and a two-bed/double guest cabin, this bad boy has got plenty of crash space, too. Did we mention the X44 has also got an electric barbecue and an external hifi system? If you’re looking for a practical, stylish, high-performing party boat, you can do no wrong with the X44.

The Best Party Boats for Summer 20220401 - Miami Vice 5“I’m talkin’ to Tubbs right now. We’re thinking about going with The Strider 18 from SACS.”

THE STRIDER 18 FROM SACS

THE STRIDER 18 FROM SACS

SACS’s flagship powerboat has been around since 2014, so you can be sure that with a length of 56 feet, a beam of 17 feet, seating for 22 people, performance in excess of 50 knots, and space for an outboard-powered tender, it absolutely knows how to make a statement with bravado to spare. Though it has two cabins, what makes it special is its impressive upper deck, which has been specifically crafted for partying. If you’re not mad at the idea of shelling out some serious moolah for your new party boat, this Italian Stallion is definitely one to seriously consider.

The Best Party Boats for Summer 20220401 - Miami Vice 6“Just give me a sec, would ya, Tubbs? Now I’m thinking about laying down some cold harsh for The Element XR7 from Bayliner.”

THE ELEMENT XR7 FROM BAYLINER

THE ELEMENT XR7 FROM BAYLINER

If you like the idea of having a boat that is less expensive and relatively easy to trailer (not to mention clean up), the modest, extremely user-friendly Element XR7 might just be the party boat for you.

Though it has a length of merely 25 ft., it can easy hold up to 16 people as a result of its clever design, which utilizes a trimaran-style cathedral fiberglass monohull. In other words, it offers the inboard space and versatility of a pontoon boat but with the performance and style of a monohull boat.

Whether you’re a party boat novice or a total veteran, the XR7 has plenty of power options for you to choose from. The fact that it is fully spruced up with a bimini top, a portside entertainment system (that includes a waterproof 120-watt AM/FM stereo), a ski pole, a bathroom, a fridge, and a wet bar? Well, that’s not too shabby, either.

Just be sure to call one of the 4 massive lounge seats before you step foot this machine.

The Best Party Boats for Summer 20220401 - Miami Vice 7“Ok. I get it now. The X55 from Mastercraft is money, too.”

THE X55 FROM MASTERCRAFT

THE X55 FROM MASTERCRAFT

Having a wakeboard boat like Mastercraft X55, the largest and most luxurious wakeboard boat in the Mastercraft lineup, is what’s up for the Gallantry Man looking to treat their friends to thrills those offered by your typical celebratory rage session. In addition to featuring a 73 square ft. main lounge, a first class seating capacity that fits up to 18 people, a wet bar, glittering LED lights, and a bumping sound system, it’s also fully customizable, so you better believe you’re going to be catching looks from the occasional passerby when you’re moving on this gem.

The Best Party Boats for Summer 20220401 - Miami Vice 8“Dude. I agree. The Rava 100 Corsaro. The Interboat Neo 7.0. The Sylvan M3 CRS. They’re all pretty hot party boats.”

THE 100 CORSARO FROM RIVA BOATS

THE 100 CORSARO FROM RIVA BOATS

Basically 2 layouts in one, The 100 Corsaro features a full-length open deck integrated directly on top of a full-length covered deck, so you know it’s got the goods in terms of being a party boat. In addition to being able to carry up to 20 people via its open plan (which has lots of great dining and lounging space), this 98-foot wonder offers five cabins, all en-suite, so that you can most definitely retire from your long day of partying like the absolute champ that you are. Did we mention that it has a cruising speed of 23-knots? We just hope you tell your pals when it’s time to hit the deck!

THE NEO 7.0 FROM INTERBOAT

THE NEO 7.0 FROM INTERBOAT

Utilizing a broad, V-shaped, weighty monohull with a generous bow flare (that is lined with wraparound seating), elevated freeboards/guardrails, an open deck, deep storage compartments, and a trio of basic yet efficient configurations, the hybrid Neo 7.0 comes with a boatload (pun intended) of power choices (ranging from 27hp to 200hp). In other words, it’s a good-looking party boat with options.

From the Lounge layout (which has a steering position in the center of the aft space), to the Comfort layout (which has a helm on the starboard side amidships), and, of course, the action-style Sport layout (which has a central steering position and an open transom for watersports), there are no bad moves here, just different moves.

THE M3 CRS FROM SYLVAN

THE M3 CRS FROM SYLVAN

Pontoons are the original “party barge,” plain and simple. Packing 300hp of horsepower at almost 26 ft., this baby has room for up to a dirty dozen. So if you’re looking to rock out on a rectangular platform balanced on a set of pontoons with the whole team, the M3 CRS won’t let you down.

The Best Party Boats for Summer 20220401 -Miami Vice 9“Didn’t I tell you Daddy was going to get the Scout 350 LFX? Baby, I’m a Gallantry Man so you already know what I’m about.”

THE 350 LXF FROM SCOUT BOATS

THE 350 LXF FROM SCOUT BOATS

The folks at Scout Boats know what’s up when it comes to having good times on a top-notch boat. The 350 LXF is no exception, a truly phenomenal party boat with comfortable seating at both the front and the back. With speakers (that come with an amp), a 12-volt fridge, and an ice chest with high-quality counter, the 350 LXF has got everything that you need for an impressive fiesta while still being compact enough to cruise through smaller waterways and bays like the sleek little boss that it is.

The Best Party Boats for Summer 20220401 - Gladiator 10“ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!”

Owning a party boat is just something that Gallantry Man Legends do. Not only does it allow you to leave all that stress behind at the shore (literally), but it also provides you with the perfect excuse to party like a rock star with the whole clique, not to mention sip on that last cocktail (you promise!) as you watch the sun set…on your very own party boat.

No matter what world-class party boat you end up tearing up those hot summer nights with, we’d be remiss if we didn’t of course stress that putting safety first is also the only way to go for the Gallantry Man.

We know. We get it. The Gallantry Man has a reputation for flexing straight-fire everyday carry and being the life of the party wherever he is, but with great power comes great responsibility. Plus, you always want to leave ‘em (in this case, your guests) wanting more!

The Best Party Boats for Summer 20220401 - The Wolf of Wall Street 11“You check out those fresh waterproof/water-resistant everyday carry wallets, watches, and sling packs from Gallantry that I was telling you about? Remember what I told you, brother. Having a party boatski without proper everyday carry to back you up? Man, might as well not even have a party boat in the first place.”

Speaking of wanting more, just wait you get a look a boatload of these next pieces of epic waterproof/water-resistant everyday carry gear…
