What Is A Runabout? 

“Runabout” originally referred to a small, lightweight boat that could “run about” quickly and easily, making it suitable for short trips or excursions. However, the definition has expanded to include a range of boats with different sizes, features, and capabilities.

Runabouts typically feature an open cockpit design, allowing passengers to move freely around the boat. They often have seating arrangements in the bow (front) and stern (rear) areas, with a central helm station for the driver. Depending on the specific model and configuration, the seating may include benches, bucket seats, or convertible lounges. 

One of the advantages of runabouts is their versatility and ease of transport. They can be easily towed on a trailer and launched in different bodies of water, allowing boaters to explore various destinations. Runabouts are often seen on lakes, rivers, and coastal waters, allowing owners to enjoy boating in different environments.
