BEST FOR: Fishing, sunbathing. THE TEST: Most sit-on-tops are barges—impossible to lift and heavy in the water. The Caribbean sets a new standard. The boat’s lightweight hull is a slippery blend of acrylic and ABS plastic with a nearly indestructible acrylic cap. The hard glossy finish won’t break down from UV, so you can store it outside. The hull is shaped like a powerboat’s for added stability and reduced drag. The result: it paddles like a decked kayak with a solid, wide platform that beginners, anglers, and photographers all appreciated. Accessories mount via suction cups and include everything from a hatch cover to cup holders. THE VERDICT: Versatile, light, fun. 12'; 45 lbs
