PDB Tests New Larson Pontoon
In this industry it’s hard to keep a secret. As journalists we’re always trying to get the scoop on our competition before big news is officially released. When rumors started flying around about a brand new pontoon being launched, we of course were all over it. We quickly hopped a plane bound for Minnesota to be one of the first to see what all the excitement was about.
Larson Boat Group is celebrating its 100th anniversary in style this year by venturing into a new market with the release of its Escape line of pontoon boats. Known in the industry for its high-quality fiberglass boats, no one outside of the Minnesota-based company could have predicted this.
The Escape is available in 21-, 23- and 25-foot lengths and features Larson’s patented Tapered Tube Technology. This construction uses dual planing hulls constructed of heavy-gauge aluminum to give the boat a smooth, solid and agile ride with efficient fuel economy.
As a staff we couldn’t wait to get it out on the water to see exactly how that tapered pontoon design worked. The end result was we were very impressed with the performance and even more amazed by the unique look. With its fiberglass background, it was great to see how Larson was able to incorporate some of those designs into a brand new pontoon line.
We ran numbers, took a lot of photos and got a good feel for what this Escape from Larson Boats could do. Look for a full review of this new pontoon in our Fall issue of PDB magazine. And by the way, you're going to love the the changing room design that is like nothing else out there. For more information on Larson Boats visit www.larsonboats.com.
