Pontoons for Every Party

Think pontoons are just for party boaters? Think again.

It might not officially be summer yet, but it sure feels like it. And good weather means it’s time to take those get-togethers outside — possibly on a pontoon boat.

Edgy and ultra-modern, the Aqua Patio 250 XP pontoon.

Edgy and ultra-modern, the Aqua Patio 250 XP is clearly designed to appeal to your youthful nature.

The great thing about pontoons is that they’re so versatile: They’re capable of more than just parties on the water.

They’re the perfect vessel for bass fishing, or you can choose a sportier version for wakeboarding. And if you really want to swank it up, you can go that route, too.

Plus, as our fishing guy Lenny points out:

Practical pricing is another pontoon perk. They often cost about half what a similar length V-hull fiberglass boat would, and you can get some 18-footers for under ten grand. Part of the reason is their efficient nature, because many boats of this type can run with relatively small powerplants.

With such a broad range of capabilities, it’s no wonder pontoons are one of the fastest-growing segments of the boating market. We wrote a roundup of our favorites here. Which are yours? Leave us a comment in the comments section.
