Runabout boats are medium-sized, trailerable vessels frequently used for time-honored activities such as day cruising and watersports. They have a rich legacy as vessels that are sought-after due to their moderate draft and average beam, characteristics that make these vessels exceptionally great for day cruising and watersports. The average number of people that can be accommodated onboard runabout boats listed is 7 passengers, with a maximum capacity of 17 guests and crew. Models with more power can hold motors up to 860 horsepower, while the most compact models may have as low as 40 horsepower engines on them (although the average power size is 260 HP).
