Some information and observation from first time pontoon boat owners. Having owned several styles and sizes of boats, the pontoon is definitely the most comfortable for this family who uses it strictly in the intracoastal waterway. This is the living room on the water of smaller boats under 30′. Of course there are pros and cons to any boat but but if it’s a pleasure or party boat you want, this is a strong contender. When Exoman went to get a boat, he wated something comfotable with good shade like a t-top of strong Bimini. This Sylvan and the Bennington’s he looked at were just right. He decided to buy a used Sylvan pontoon and save a lot of money.
A final caveat that was not mentioned in this video is that if you are going to get a boat and go out on the water make sure to spend the extra for boating insurance such as Boats US or Sea Tow. The cost is under $200 a year and can save you thousands. It is incredibly expensive to get assistance on the water where so much can go wrong from dead battery, no fuel, stuck or beached vessel, loss of power etc. Any of these events can cost hundreds or thousands and the peace of mind of know that help is a phone call away at no extra cost is so worth it!
