What is a Pontoon Boat?
Pontoon boats, generally speaking, are boats comprised of a large & flat deck which are fastened to two or three cylindrical tubes for flotation. Pontoon boats are often powered by outboard motors which are fastened to the transom using a sponson. Known for their accessibility, pontoons are easy to board on-and-off without any climbing or maneuvering due to the entry and exit gates being flush with the standing-deck. Pontoons are great for larger groups with a wide-variety of needs including water sports, leisurely cruises, fishing, storage and accessibility.
Types of pontoon Boats
There are essentially two types of pontoon boats: Traditional pontoons which are a deck with two tubes, a sponson and engine with enough power to leisurely cruise around the lake. Tritoons (or triple-toons) namely, are a deck and three pontoons often equipped with lifting strakes, keels and other performance enhancing features. The third pontoon usually extends all the way back to the transom, which would act as a sponson. Some tritoons utilize a performance planing tube as oppose to a full-length tube, which gives you two pontoons (port & starboard), a middle tube which often runs 60-70% of the length of the boat AND a sponson. This is a more cost-effective option however the full-lenth centre tube provides more performance, better and more enjoyable driving experience, larger person and fuel capacity, enhanced stability and more.
