I want to buy a 14’ aluminum utility boat for a very small body of water my cottage is located on. I want the widest and deepest 14’ utility boat available for stability and in case I use it in larger bodies of water. I also realize the deepest boat may not be the widest. Without having to go to 20 different dealers, can anyone tell me the brands and models I should be looking at? I appreciate your input. Thanks.

Aluminum boat brands are often regional, not sold nation wide. Some more common aluminum brands are DuraCraft, Lowe, Lund, G3, Smoker Craft, and Tracker Pro. But there is no guarantee that all of these will have a dealer near you. The regional brands can also be very good quality, should not be ignored.

14' will be really small for a larger body of water. In boats this light weight every 6 inches in length makes a difference in chop (don't cheat yourself on length).
