About Pontoon Boats
What is a Pontoon Boat?
Pontoon boats are wide, flat boats used for recreation on the water. These boats rely on special structures called “pontoons” to float, and are suitable for recreational activities such as fishing, sunbathing, and small parties.
Pontoon boats come in a wide variety of types and sizes. Some can offer fishability, which tend to be smaller fishing pontoons made for up to three people.
“Mini pontoon boats” are also smaller, and usually accommodate up to three people. These mini pontoons are great for lake fishing or pond enjoyment. There are also fast pontoon boats that can travel at faster speeds than slow pontoon boats. These are also great for enjoyment on calm rivers, lakes and intercoastal waterways. There are also wakeboarding pontoon boats that can support beginner wakeboarders.
What Are Custom-Built Pontoons?
There are a wide variety of pontoon vessels for sale, and many of them are custom-built. Some custom-built pontoon boats come with a Bimini top to protect guests from the elements. A Bimini top can be removable, so that if guests choose, they can also sunbathe. Some custom-built pontoons will come with other conveniences such as a Bluetooth stereo capability so that guests can enjoy music while out on the water, which enhances the party atmosphere that pontoons often share.
Other luxury pontoon boats will come with stainless steel elements that keep the boat strong. Some of these pontoons vessels can be fishing pontoons that offer rod holders for convenience for some fishermen. These fishing pontoons with rod holders are excellent vessels for fishing in lakes and calmer waters as they offer lots of space to walk around the boat for easy fishability.
