Manitou Buyer’s Guide

Choose your own adventure.

The first step in choosing a Manitou is to choose your model. And with so many models to choose from, we can deliver exactly the pontoon boat to meet your wants and exceed your posse’s expectations. Exquisite style, luxury, and industry-defining performance.

Manitou 2020 Premium Pontoons

What makes them so exciting? In a word, fiberglass. In XT, everything from the deck up is crafted of it, creating boats that further blur the lines between pontoons and runabouts.

These two are true game-changers — the versatility and luxury of a high-end pontoon with the style and comfort of a traditional hull boat. What’s more, we didn’t sacrifice the performance that people have come to expect from Manitou because the fiberglass in these boats doesn’t add significant weight.

Not only are the finishes first-class, so is the functionality. A smart screen delivers digital readouts and remote access to the wake tower, the fiberglass side gate has a friction hinge so it remains open at any angle, and every layout utilizes space in ways you’ll love.
