I'm looking for about a 12 ft johnboat, semi-v or a 2 man bass buster for a small private pond. I have a canoe, but I need something that the grandkids or company can use. Don't need motor or trailer, a barebones fishing platform will work.
Thanks and tight lines.

My advise/opinion is to go with a Bass Buster type boat if it is a pontoon type. The small aluminum type john boats tend to be unstable. Kids are wanting to stand up and move around, can't really do that too safely with john boats. It's easy to lose you balance in them unless your sitting all the time. The bass buster type are more difficult to paddle though. A cheap trolling motor will fix that.

+1 on the pontoon boat. I have a Pond Prowler, and I love it! Very stable platform, and would fit your needs perfectly.

I also have a Minn Kota 30# tm for sale if you're interested.

I have a 2015 pelican 10E I'd sell for $450, for $200 more I'd throw in a battery and a minnkota 50lb trolling motor. This was all bought new at academy summer of 2015 and has been used less than 10 times.
