Ten years ago, our Buyer's Guide issue was filled with three manufacturers to a page and it went on and on. A lot of those companies aren't in business today, which is what a recession does. It eliminates the weaker competition and the ones that are still standing have proven they have what it takes to deliver on the customer's expectations. Any one of these companies make a boat that you would be proud to own but it's up to you to decide which is the best fit for you and your family.

Buying a boat can be complex and involves time and research. No one would expect someone to drop tens of thousands of dollars on a boat that wasn't well built. It's too much money to not get exactly what you're looking for. So if you're in the market for a new vessel, take the time to get to know the company behind the product.

In our January 2014 Buyer's Guide issue, you'll find what sets them apart, how many models they produce and what social media outlets you can find them on to further your research. Below is a list of all the boats you can find in our Buyer's Guide issue, and a slideshow of all the boats we've featured:
