Owning a pontoon will give you a key to enjoying the outdoors with people you love. There's no reason why you shouldn't take advantage of the benefits recreational boating has to offer. Here's some reasons you won't regret it. 

10. Always a smooth ride, even in rough waters.

9. Lots of people onboard? Everyone still has elbow room.

8. Your pets are always welcome.

7. A flat platform makes the most sense for fishing.

6. There is no shortage of amazing scenery and sunsets land dwellers will never see.

5. A pontoon purchase is a vote for the American workforce. Proudly made in the U.S.A.

4. Pontooning relieves stress. The NMMA listed boating in the top-three of all stress-relieving activities.

3. Young or old, a pontoon is perfect. The elderly walk on instead of stepping down and the young one are protected by an unmatched rail system.

2. Rear-facing lounges. Enough said.

1. Other people on your lake will be jealous when they see you cruise by.
