2/20/2013 In reading some of the reviews here it seems that there is a general perception that a 240 LTS is a great riding boat but slow. I can tell you as a professional redfish tournament angler I run a 240 LTS with a 300 Verado and it will consistently outrun any Ranger except for a bass boat and most any other boat close to it's size. My 240 will easily run over 60 MPH light and well over 55 MPH no matter how much weight or fuel I add and as far as I am concerned NOTHING will out ride a LTS, NOTHING. If you are looking for an exceptional riding boat that is both dry and fast that will also consistently float in 12" or less then the Triton 240 LTS is the only choice.

2/3/2013 I have a 2006 LTS 24 and there is no other bay boat that can compete with the smooth ride of the LTS 24!!!! This boat rocks! It's not as fast as some of your Ranger or Skeeter boats, but they wont ride near as well as a Triton in the chop. Great storage, plenty of room, and a very stable deck. Huge console to access your electonics and work on electrical pannel. My only complaint with this boat boat is the two small hatches in the stern to access the bildge and the plumbing. Triton skipped out on this part. One big access plate would be easier and they dont put any shut off valves on the live well plumbing coming from the high speed pickups. Other than that, this is one awesome boat.

1/14/2013 I started in bass boats fishing the Chesapeake Bay tributaries. A friend got a bay boat and the room was tremendous when compared to a bass boat and it could do and go everywhere the bass boat did while have a more stable platform.
I kept looking at the different models, but kept coming back to the 240 after being in one at a boat show with Stephen Browning.
The under gunnel rod storage, a must!
The large space in front of the console, a must!
The port and starboard steps to the upper fore and aft decks, a must!
The wind going over my head when standing behind the console, a must!
The large live wells and bait well, a must!
The amount of storage, a must!
The ride? What can I say? You have to ride in one. Stable, safe, eats the chop.
The fishability? Room to spare. Gunnels not to high to lean over and lip a fish be it a bass or striper yet tall enough to feel safe.
I could go on but you get the picture.

12/9/2011 I purchased my boat 4 months before hurricane Katrina devastated new Orleans. My 24 lts survived and has mauled the trout around south east Louisiana since. I am a 6 year year staff officer in the coast guard auxiliary. This boat has towed 3 distressed boats in from the marsh and has saved a lab retriever from the Mississippi river gulf outlett. I am more than comfortable in my triton and haven't found another boat I would be willing to trade my triton for.

I started my boating life in 1985 with a 13' Boston Whaler/ 35hp Johnson, (later changed to a 60 Evinrude) moved to a 17'-6" Hydra Sports F+S/ 140hp Johnson, (later changed to a 150 XR-2 Mercury) then to a Stratos 201 Pro bass boat/ GT 175 Johnson (later changed to a Johnson 225hp HO.
As you can see, always moving up.
I was looking to move to a bay boat and Triton was on the short list. My son and I looked closely at one at the Timonium, MD boat show years ago and I fell in love.
I already knew Triton's reputation from being around bass boats and following the Red Fish Trail, where the 240 was king.
At that time it was just a dream to have one. A few years went by and I found a used 2005 with 42 hours on it in a nearby state that was priced right! I jumped on it and never looked back.
Friends have said, "Well, you will be wanting a bigger boat soon". My answer is, "No, I don't, this does everything I will ever want in a fishing boat!".
Plenty of room for multiple anglers, storage galore, large live wells, a bait well, and the styling no other can touch, plus more.
I do not go in the ocean but it is nice to know if ever I would like to venture out, I can feel secure following my safety check list.
I fish for everything that swims in the Chesapeake Bay, mostly stripers now. My guest and I feel safe in any (reasonable) conditions mother nature can throw at us.
There is not a time I go out that i do not get a compliment on the boat. I feel a little strange thanking them, I didn't design it, I'm just a proud lucky owner.

3/24/2011 In 2009 I was looking to downsize from a 32' CC to a 24' bay boat. After looking at every productiion bay boat available I chose the 240 LTS. It's THE best riding bay boat hands down. I had mine 25 miles offshore in 3'-4' seas and never felt uncomfortable. It's also very dry. The storage is fantastic. I hate a cluttered deck and in the LTS there is places to store everything out of the way. Construction is top notch as is the fit and finish work. I have a Yamaha F250 on mine and I can get 3 mpg cruising at 30 mph. She tops out at 51 mph. From offshore, to coastal marshes to freshwater bass fishing and pulling skiers, the Triton LTS is a perfect fit
