  • Quality - This time, building a great grill alone doesn’t cut it. Qualifying top-rated boat grills must be built from superior materials specifically engineered to withstandthe full elements of days spent deep-sea fishing — and hearty warranties to back them up.

  • Performance - What good is a grill at sea if it doesn’t hit (and maintain) reasonable peak temperatures? Our top-rated boat grills are the cream of the crop; we expect best-in-class performance in breezy conditions where portable grills just can’t compare.

  • Features - We don’t just hand out top-rated classification. The best boat grills go above and beyond with great features, covering everything from warming racks andinfrared radiant screens to swiveling control valves for safe canister exchange.

  • Value - Narrowing in on a boat grills’ value means intersecting its quality, performance, and features with the price tag. You shouldn’t have to break the bank for your next grill — which is why our top-rated offerings must match great craftsmanship with affordability.
