Pontoon boats wouldn’t be called the most versatile watercraft in the world if they didn’t offer different options for seating arrangements and floor plans, right? Of course not. Especially with the advancements in manufacturing we enjoy today. You can customize your pontoon boat design to fit exactly what you like to do—whether it’s cruising and lounging, socializing, skiing and tubing, or anything else you can do on the water.
A LAYOUT FOR EVERY ACTIVITY CONSIDER THE LENGTH OF THE BOAT
When designing the layout of your pontoon boat, it’s important to determine how you plan to use your boat. Whether you plan to design a boat for a single activity or create a layout that is optimized for several activities, you’ll be able to do it.
CONSIDER THE LENGTH OF THE BOAT
The length of a boat is important for a few reasons. First, the length of the boat is one of the key considerations in determining the capacity rating of the boat. Additionally, the length of the boat should be considered if you have a dock or a lift that is rated for a certain length, and also if you plan to trailer your pontoon boat at any time.
The New Generation of Manitou pontoons come in different lengths, allowing you to decide how much space you need for seating and storage. The 4 different length options include: 20’, (Cruise model only), 22’, 24’, and 26’ (Explore model only.)
CHOOSE A FLOOR PLAN
