Ideal for entry-level buyers and for those on a budget, the Bayliner Element E16 is as simple as it gets. Shorter than others on this list it does get the job done and offers countless hours of fun on the water.

Its interior is very basic so depending on your necessities you might need to add a couple of their optional upgrades including a waterproof stereo system, a removable cooler, a Bimini top for some shade and the ski tow bar or wakeboard rack for water sports.

It features an M-shaped hull which puts the E16 on plane right out of the hole and maintains level flotation at rest and through turns. Equipped with a 60 horsepower Mercury, the Bayliner Element E16 reaches a top speed of 31 mph.
