Pontoon Boat Trends

When pontoon boats first charged at the market en masse, they were considered great for larger groups and for passengers requiring easy boat access. They were not popular among sporty types looking for a thrilling, speedy ride. Today, pontoon boats cater to a larger demographic. Pontoon boats are now manufactured with stylish trim and some of them can top speeds of 40 mph.

Pontoon Boats in Maine

Numbers vary from dealer to dealer, but Maine boat dealers who offer pontoon boats can attest to their well-earned place at the center of the market. According to a recent Bangor Daily News article, it is not uncommon for pontoon boat transactions to make up between a quarter and half of a business’s sales. It was not always this way. Changes in design and capabilities, coupled with an appreciation for the boats’ value, have made pontoon boats more appealing to consumers.

Reasons for Increased Popularity

Most pontoon boats can comfortably hold a dozen or more passengers. This is roughly twice the capacity of the average runabout. Pontoon boats are also accessible, ideal for use by the mobility impaired. Another selling point for the pontoon boat is its versatility. The preferences of relaxation-minded individuals who want to read or play cards on deck all day and those of energetic youngsters who would rather spend their day clinging on to rubber handles to avoid being ejected from an inner tube can simultaneously be met.

Pontoon boats are just one of the several varieties of recreational watercraft available for rent or purchase at Moose Landing Marina in Naples. Call (207) 693-6264 or visit us to find out what other new and used boats are in our inventory.
