Larson Boat Group is at the Miami International Boat Show and they took great pride in showing us there amazing Escape 25 luxury pontoon boat. Technically, it was introduced  two weeks ago at the Minneapolis Boat Show but if you are in Miami, you can see it now. We saw the original prototype last fall so we knew what to expect. It's definitely a great boat. 

“What we’re doing is concentrating on what’s selling,” Larson president and CEO Rob Parmentier said. Pontoons are definitely selling.

A former Sea Ray Boat Group president, Parmentier has been at the helm of Larson since October. “I’ve made five years’ worth of changes in three months,” he said. “There’s a lot happening here.”

The Escape pontoon, which will come in 22-, 23 and 25-foot models, has a fiberglass deck, aluminum vee-bottom hulls, LED lighting along the bow and a full stand-up cabana at the stern with a head.

“This isn’t grandpa’s pontoon,” Parmentier said.
