Pros:Smooth Ride, lots of storage space, room for plenty of passengers

Cons:Poor visibility with fishing chairs mounted on deck

The Bottom Line: Anyone considering a deck boat would do well to test drive the Tahiti. Its smooth ride and nicely designed layout are hard to beat.


The appeal of a deck boat to me lies in its flexibility. You get the ability to fish, the ability to pull skiers all with space enough for 8 adults to have room. However, my intent in this review is not to talk anyone into buying a deck boat, but rather to encourage anyone interested in a deck boat into test driving a Tahiti. I was hesitant to buy an aluminum boat and was leaning toward a fiberglass model; until I test drove the Lowe. The fiberglass deck boats I drove did not have a true V hull and were not very smooth in rougher water. The deep V hull of the Lowe offered a ride that was significantly smoother than all of the fiberglass models I tested.

The boat is loaded with storage space; I keep my skies, fishing poles, life jackets, cooler, plus more all stowed away with room to spare.

On the negative side, the fishing chairs in the front are close together and can be awkward for two to cast freely side-by-side. Also the chairs can restrict vision when driving from the helm and although they can be removed, this is not an easy task.

I have had my Tahiti for over a year now and use it primarily on a fairly large lake that can get fairly rough. The Lowe has performed wonderfully. My boat is equipped with a four stroke, 130 HP Honda motor; I choice that I am glad I made. The four stroke is extremely quiet and I do not have to deal with mixing oil and the dreaded "blue cloud" faced by anyone with a two stroke.

I highly recommend the Tahiti and am confident that anyone that test drives one will be hooked.
