How the Pontoon Boat Is Redefining Boating

HOW THE PONTOON BOAT IS REDEFINING BOATING Baby Boomers remember a different type of pontoon boat. Their pontoon boat was a wooden platform stabilized on wooden or steel barrels. The clunky, slow boats from six decades ago didn't offer much in terms of luxury or speed. The new pontoon boats, however, are faster, easier to handle, and can still accommodate all the boating activities a family wants. NEW TECHNOLOGY &DESIGN VERSATILITY Modern pontoon boats are built with fiberglass to give them the look and of a speedboat without compromising structure or stability. Previous models were not very fast and were difficult to operate. Pontoon boats were initially designed for fishing on Minnesota's many lakes, which compromised their speed and handling. New hull designs and power steering have made operating a pontoon boat much easier for the average boater. Luxury pontoon sales are being driven by a consumer interest in a multipurpose day boat. The deck furniture is fully integrated into the fiberglass like in a speedboat. Storage and sitting areas are fully utilized to maximize space and efficiency while not compromising luxury Boat operators are able to utilize their pontoons for not only fishing but entertaining and watersports as well. The sliding gates come with friction hinges, so they will stay open at any angle instead of automatically shutting like previous models. A 300-horsepower engine, plus the light fiberglass frame, means a Manitou Pontoon boat can travel up to 65 miles per hour! Newer pontoon boats can come with a 24-can storage unit, fire pits, BBQ grills, and even a waterslide for SOURCES httpwww.startribune com/aminnesotainvention the pontoon boutredefinng modern boating/a11478851/ http://www.mantoupontoonboats com/trarts-of the best-pontoon boats httpwww.discoverboating com/resources/article aspid-665 fiberglass pontoon-boat/ maximum entertainment.
