- Their pontoon base gives the boat more stability.
- There is not much to a pontoon boat, so they are extremely spacious.
- The combination of space on the deck and stability of the pontoons, creates the perfect location for a party.
- Pontoons are fast but calm. They can either race around or float on the lake in style. It's the best of both worlds.
- Due to their basic design, they can be built up and torn down easily. Restoring a pontoon boat can be a simple do it yourself project.
- Their popularity has led to the invention of hundreds of accessories to enhance any fun out on the lake.
