Best tower boat

May dad and I are looking to go parters in a tower boat and are in a debate over what to get. The plan is to buy a used boat and repower it with a Yamaha Trp and add at tower. I see a ton I’ve nice looking RFLs out there with old motors for a good price and think they would fit what we want pretty good. (Also I had a RFL years ago and know the boat well). He is dead set on an illusion, which seems to be 20k more every where I look... would the illusion make that much better of a boat?

The Illusion is faster, handles infinitely better without sliding so bad, and has much better resale.... likely the most popular boat on the redfish tourneys.... for a reason.

Buy a tower boat already done and you will save a ton of money.

Yeah idk if it's worth 20k more, but definitely think it's a major upgrade over a RFL.

There are some great boat builders out there that you can turn into a tower boat. So the big question is how much are you willing to spend to build a both you both will love

buy it used and you'll never sell it for anything close to what you want/ have in it. buy a already rigged one.

Definitely. Tower flats boats have an extremely small market. I know several boat flippers that won't touch one unless it's being let go at a desperate price.

I am definitely looking for a used one but they all seem to be really decked out and high priced. We are on a budget of 40k.

Also we are not really looking at any of the cats so that narrows a lot by of the market. (really wanting something to run real skinny and get up in anything).
