There's a bunch. If I were looking for a new boat it would be one of these three:
Bass Cat
Storm
Allison

Nearly everything else will be owned by Tracker.

Now that sort of open ended question will quickly become “I run a supercraft and you should too”
The more you learn the happier you’ll be with your decision.
Ride in everything.
Base your decision on where you’re going to use it most.
The motor is half your investment make sure you do your homework there as much as the hull
Pros are paid to promote their sponsors. Keep that in mind.

Buy at least a 20’ boat, even if it has to be an older model. A small boat on big water can get dangerous. Buy as big as you can find. Used Phoenix, Ranger, Triton, Nitro, Basscat or Skeeter

That's my plan to upgrade in a year or 2 to a 20ft boat life makes it hard Murphy keep showing up so I have a small price range so normally I end up with older boats and only get a year or 2 out of them

Are you looking for new or used? If used what price range are you looking at? Those 2 questions can help everyone point you in the right direction (at least in their minds).

The cheapest boat is not necessarily about the front end cost.

I'd look at some of the smaller, family owned companies.
Always heard nothing but good things about the ProGator boats out of Benton, LA

Years ago I replaced my 16.5' Skeeter Wrangler with an 18.5' Nitro and was amazed how much better it handled rough water. Recently I parked the Nitro and run a 21' Triton and am amazed how much better it handles rough water than the Nitro.....
