When you need a spacious and comfortable boat with plenty of room to move around on the water, you should look into pontoon boats. Constructed on a wide base of two or more metal tubes called pontoons, these boats are stable on the water with wide decks and all manner of amenities to make you and your guests comfortable. Here at Cedar Port Marina in Disney, Oklahoma, we’ve got plenty of reasons why buying a pontoon boat is a great choice.
Pontoon boats are wide, flat boats that have a deck made of metal or, traditionally, wood that rests upon two or more large, hollow floats in a tube shape. These tubes, also called pontoons, allow the boat to float on the surface of even very shallow water. Their draft can be as shallow as eight inches in some cases. Due to their simple construction, pontoon boats can be very basic affairs or they can be very large and elaborate with upper decks and all sorts of amenities. Pontoon boats can be used for swimming, fishing and general entertaining on the water, as you can cruise gently to where you want to be and then have a stable platform from which you can enter and exit the water.
Affordable & Family-Friendly
So why are pontoon boats so great? For one thing, they’re often much more affordable than other styles of boat. Their maintenance costs are lower and they’re cheaper to insure. Pontoon boats last a long time due to their sturdy construction and inherent stability. Any boat is an investment, but you’ll save more money with a pontoon.
Pontoon boats are also family-friendly. They have high walls that prevent kids from falling out and they’re very stable so you won’t have to worry constantly about safety. Pontoon boats also have plenty of space for everyone to spread out, so kids can bring their friends along.
Because of their basic definition, a pontoon boat can be almost anything you want it to be. Need a fishing vessel with plenty of room for everyone to spread out and clean their catches? Equip a pontoon boat with a T-top and a livewell and you’ve got one. Want to entertain friends? Find a pontoon boat with a wet bar and plenty of comfortable seating, add some lights for ambience and you’ve got a great boat for a party. Want to swim? Some pontoons offer swimming platforms and ladders to help make getting into and out of the water easier, and you can find models with sun decks for tanning and even models with slides for more fun on the water.
