While many boaters immediately associate the brand name Lowe with hard-core aluminum fishing boats, did you know that its sister brand, Suncruiser, also offers all the experience of the Lowe brand in a family-friendly pontoon boat? Naturally, when a company has put in over three decades of research and innovation to develop the kind of long-standing fishing expertise that this Missouri builder has, it takes full advantage of the opportunity to incorporate that knowledge in its pontoon boats as well. And if any company knows fishing, it's Lowe.

But putting together a great fishing pontoon model requires a little more than throwing in a few rod holders and swivel chairs. Thoughtful amenities like tackle storage, bait tanks and a livewell are essential. Any serious angler knows that leaving gear loose onboard is not an option-nor is packing it up and in the house day in and day out. Lowe, an expert in fishing models, understands that boaters looking for a fishing `toon want the perfect blend of fishing amenities to maximize an angling outing but with luxury and family- friendly inclusions aboard as well. Suncruiser by Lowe accomplishes this with its LS224 Angler model.

For fishing in style and comfort, the LS224 is the perfect catch. This fully-equipped angler includes four pedestal fishing seats, built-in tackle box, vertical three-rod holder, aerated livewell, plus a seven-foot, two-inch rod locker. For entertaining, it offers wide, eight-foot, six-inch decks, a digital AM/FM CD stereo, comfortable "L" lounge with pedestal table, large sundeck and bimini top. A trolling motor and fishfinder are also available must-have options for a truly loaded fishing `toon.

Lowe has been around for over 35 years-long enough to know what you're looking for in a great boat. Starting out small like many boat manufacturers do, Carl and Dianna Lowe founded the Lowe line in 1971 as an aluminum boat and canoe builder. Through the years, Lowe has become a technological leader in the aluminum boat market.

Eight years later, it expanded to add the Sunbird entry-level and Monaco upscale line of pontoon boats. Today, its pontoon division is the Suncruiser line, which includes pontoon and deck boats to meet a wide variety of boating family needs.

Continually expanding its number and type of available models throughout the years has enabled this veteran company to be in the strong position it is today-capable of meeting the needs and demands of boaters all across the United States. Where there is a Suncruiser, you can be sure there are memories to go with it. It's not uncommon to see second and third generations of families return to the Lowe brand to meet their boating needs and demands on the water.

Suncruiser pontoons are built in the heart of the Ozarks and near one of the most popular boating lakes in the country, Lake of the Ozarks. Hand-worked craftsmanship is the standard for this show-me state builder. Using hi-tolerance CAD specifications, its craftsmen employ specialized computer assisted pontoon construction methods. Then a team of specialized local craftsmen assemble every Suncruiser entirely by hand using only the finest materials and components to ensure that your boat is the ultimate in comfort, style and convenience. This critical difference in precision construction results in remarkable fit and finish you'll notice as the years of ownership go by.
