Bennington prototyped the very first boat with rear-facing lounge seats during the winter of 2006, then launched it as a concept boat at the Miami Boat Show in February 2007. At that time, Bennington was invited by MerCruiser to design a new pontoon boat that could house its new "Vaser" engine. After launching the prototype boat in Miami, the boat manufacturer discovered that it loved the floorplan concept, but that the boat needed stronger propulsion. This caused them to re-design the stern of the boat to house a traditional I/O and introduce the very first of its kind, the Bennington RCW. The RCW was officially revealed to Bennington customers in July of 2007. Since that time, Bennington has further expanded its selection of rear-lounging models by developing outboard versions with extended stern platforms.

The latest from Bennington is the 2550 RCW O/B. This pontoon boat is definitely built for comfort. The interior features 28-ounce Palm carpet (Boca or Sand), three chaise lounges with ample storage and ventilation, mahogany kidney table for setting up your boating food, two portable cup holders with arm rests and a reclining helm seat.
