The Best Hurricane Deck Boat Accessories Money Can Buy
How can you make the most of your Hurricane deck boat? With accessories, of course!
While it's true you need a model to suit your boating lifestyle, and a brand you can trust, there's something to be said about optimizing your craft to have the most fun.
You can purchase your Hurricane with all the bells and whistles you need (and want), or you can purchase add-on accessories later. Either way, here are some amazing upgrades.
Hurricane Deck Boats: Various Models
When I wanted to purchase my first deck boat, I not only wanted to go with a brand with a good warranty and good customer support but one that also offered a variety of models.
The thing about boat companies with a varied lineup (especially with a pleasure craft), is that you want to make sure they have a product line to suit just about any need (because it typically means they carry matching accessories).
Hurricane has four distinct vessels to choose from:
The SunDeck model is what you imagine when you think of your classic deck boat. It has family-friendly features and the ability to use it for tubing, wakeboarding, skiing or simply hitting the water. Best of all, it offers the deck space you crave to ensure everyone can come aboard.
Consider this an amped-up version of the original SunDeck. It's a bit more compact and has an efficient layout that makes it more perfect for casual weekend cruises. The real selling point here is that you can install your very own entertainment system to blow people away (but more on that later).
The first feature you'll notice about the FunDeck is that it essentially looks like a pontoon boat but with the performance upgrades of a deck boat.
This Hurricane model is perfect for fishing and sharing company with family and friends without having to worry about whether or not you can hang with the big dogs out on the water.
Now, this is the kind of deck boat to share with the boys for a fishing weekend. This center console-style craft is a classic fishing boat with a deck boat twist.
It features ample space with customization to ensure you get all you need out of your next fishing expedition.
Hurricane Deck Boat Accessories
Why do people go with the Hurricane deck boat brand? Well, I was most interested in this brand because of the level of customization they offer.
When you own a deck boat and are investing lots of money, you want to ensure you're getting everything out of it. Here is a selection of our favorite Hurricane deck boat accessories to match just about any lifestyle:
Ski Tow Turbo Swing XXL (Available on Amazon) - While I might not be the biggest adrenaline junkie on the block, I know this tow bar has allowed people to have loads of fun out on the water.
The best part? It actually reduces the stress of holding onto the bow by steadying it and making it even easier for younger kids to hold on and enjoy the ride of their life. It's even great for inflatables.
Fixed Ski Tow Bar - An additional level of security, you can also have a fixed tow bar added to your Hurricane deck boat. This is an easy upgrade and ensures your time out on the water is 100% safe.
Lazy Sundays on the Lake
Cooler Mounting Kit (Available on Amazon) - This really simple solution works perfectly along with other Hurricane deck boat accessories. This mounting kit allows a cooler to sit perfectly on your boat, giving you the opportunity to kick back with some drinks to enjoy long weekends in style. Especially useful on a spacious deck boat, it helps to keep your drinks as secure as traditional cup holders.
Integrated Fresh Water Wash Down - Specific to Hurricane Deck Boats, an integrated fresh water wash down system is ideal whether you want to get ready to jump in or want to freshen up after you get out.
For those who love swimming in saltwater, like the ocean or Gulf Of Mexico, nothing beats a freshwater cool down after diving, snorkeling or swimming.
Anglers in Paradise
Deluxe Fish Seat - If you really want to enjoy your Hurricane, install a throne fit for a king. I love fishing, and I especially love feeling comfortable. Accessories like this customizable deluxe fishing seat are the perfect addition to my boat.
With the perfect amount of padding, and being able to raise the chair when I want to really kick back and relax, I can feel the internal peace and harmony coming my way already.
Rod Storage Clips - Looking for super simple accessory additions? A great way to help bolster your fishing game (without breaking the bank) would be to purchase these super nifty rod storage clips. An easy add-on, they provide fantastic storage for your rods.
Rod Holder Cutting Board - The Better Boat rod holder cutting board fits into the rod holders on your boat for easy access. It's made of UV-resistant marine-grade polyethylene. A storage section keeps knives and other tools safe and handy.
Cup Holders - A handy and necessary accessory on any boat, extra cup holders are never out of place. This set of four is adjustable for cans, bottles, mugs and travel cups.
Finding Moby Dick
Fish Finder (Available on Amazon) - While not specific to Hurricanes, if you own a Hurricane deck boat and want to make the most of it, you'll definitely need to invest in a fish finder.
It's an important accessory which allows you to get a greater understanding of the depths around you (and what inhabits them). Don't ever waste valuable time fishing in fruitless waters again! Ensure you have one of these onboard.
Expensive models might prove more useful, but this solid model at roughly $100 should do the trick.
A Touch of Sophistication
|Decals - What about accessories on the lighter side? Hurricane offers decals that can help touch up your ride, giving it extra style so others can enjoy hot rod vibes out on the water.
|Docking Lights - Adding a luxe touch, docking lights provide a clear path when you're coming in from the water in the evening. They can make pulling up to the dock or the marina to tie up dock lines that much easier.
|FunDeck Table - If you really want your friends to feel classy (or think you're classy), adding a table to your Hurricane can give it a sophisticated touch. This FunDeck Table is perfect for storing drinks and presenting snacks to make your time on the boat feel more like a dinner than a dive party.
Privacy Is Key
Privacy Tent (Available on Amazon) - When you have many passengers on a boat, chances are someone's going to have to slip into their bathing suit. For that reason, a great Hurricane deck boat accessory is the privacy tent.
This one slips right under a bimini top and offers ample space. It's easy to keep on board and affords your guests a moment of privacy to be able to change when necessary (whether it's before or after going in for a dip).
FunDeck Changing Room - Hurricane also makes their own pop-up changing room. Similar in style, this changing room is stationed in the rear storage area.
Outfitting Your Party Barge
Lighting Kit (Available on Amazon) - While it's advertised for pontoon boats, this still makes the perfect Hurricane deck boat accessory for those who really like to flaunt their sense of style while anchored out at the sandbar.
This lighting kit is easy to install, low on power and sends a message that you're out on the water for a good time.
Subwoofer - Who doesn't love to crank up the tunes while out on the water? If you really want to go all out and be the entertainment king, this easy-upgrade subwoofer is perfect for ensuring there's always a smile on someone's face.
Featured Boat Care Product

Make Your Hurricane Yours
At the end of it all, you want your deck boat to suit your lifestyle and your family's needs. After all, owning a deck boat is all about sharing good times with the people you love.
Whether you enjoy fishing with the boys, grabbing the skis and spending time with the kids, or simply having some friends on board for an evening on the lake. Your deck boat is capable of so much, so versatility is the name of the game.
When you have multiple accessories, you can outfit your day for what everyone else wants - and, sometimes, what you need to get away from it all.
Don't forget, above all else, you deserve to treat yourself. After all, you're the captain!
Sprucing up your deck boat is a great way to ensure you're getting the most bang for your buck, and not left wishing you had this, that, or the other thing once you finally hit the water.
Outfit your deck boat with the right stuff to truly enjoy your time out on the water!
