I am looking at buying a NauticStar 2140 Sport. The boat has a great layout and lockable storage and a ton options. Does anyone on here that has used one have any input or feed back on them.
As far as fishing that I do I like to bass fish but don't limit myself to just largemouth at times I like to have fun with whites and stripers. any feedback would greatly appreciated

Good boats, you will be happy with it. I have fished off of them and owned one as well. Bluewave and Sportsman make great boats that are similar in layout, you may want to look at them as well.

I was concerned about getting in a shallow water because I like to fish the crappie spawn. After 2 springs I no longer I have any concerns. Pic is from 2 years ago. I need to find a way to keep the green trash fish off the hook. [Linked Image]

I have the 2200 Bay I guess they are called 2200 Sports now but and love the layout. I like the wide beam on mine to run around the console with ease. With the 200 Yam it is a beast. Mine is an 2007 but It has been a no problem boat.

Purchased a 2100 in 2013, special order so it is a 2014 model. Couldn't be happier. Handles 20 mph winds and waves skinny water with no issues. One of the thickest hulls around , a dry ride and a comfortable ride. Have been on a number of other brands of cc & they beat you up going across the waves.

I am running 224 XTS and there is not one thing that I am unhappy with. I like it better than any boat I have owned.

I have owned and guided off a number of boats. NauticStar is by far my favorite. I have only been using NauticStar boats for the last 12 years. The 2140 is an exceptional boat. Perfect size for one person to manage or you can take out family and friends. Very stable and designed to fish, but you can certainly pull a skier as well. IT will pair nicely with an 80# thrust trolling motor, but if you want more time on the water a 112# will give you more speed and more time between charging if you are fishing all day long. The console will hold a 4 bank charger and 2 trolling motor batteries, the starting battery will be under a rear jump seat. Upgrade from the console cooler seat to a better seat with storage and a separate cooler underneath. This allows the boat to be cleaner as safer for children. The cooler seat with swing back can chop off little fingers! I suggest a 150 HP motor, anything less is underpowered. I just put a neighbor in one last month, an upgrade from his NauticStar 1910 and he is loving the added space and better handing in rough water. If you have any questions let me know. I have a great dealer that will beat any NauticStar price in Texas.

Craig, I see you have a 215XTS Shallow Bay in your sig. Can you tell much difference in the rough water ride compared to the non-shallow version?

Thanks for the input guys I have made the choice to go with the nauticstar 2140. I am having a 36 volt terrova I pilot installed to match what I'm looking for. Also this one has the f150 Yamaha 4 stroke which made the decision easier.
