If you’re not in boat sales or getting asked to quote pontoon insurance, you might not realize precisely how popular pontoon boats have become in recent years!

Who’s buying them (and why) might surprise you. The flexibility of the floorplans and the appeal of sunset cruises attract many boaters. There are families and older couples who are new to boating and attracted to the reliability of pontoon boats for cruising. Then there are avid anglers who appreciate how well pontoon boats can be kitted out with all the requisite fishing amenities. The extroverts love pontoons, too, for the vast seating options. If this sounds like a fun way to spend your free time, here are some options to consider.

2021 models that caught the eye of our pontoon insurance specialists:

2021 BENNINGTON 24 R BOWRIDER SWINGBACK

There’s something about the Bennington Bowrider that whispers of the power and style of 1950s automobiles. Maybe it’s the combination of red, chrome, and sleek lines? The recessed bow cockpit is popular with pontoon boat enthusiasts and others, while passengers will appreciate the high back chaise lounges with superbly contoured cushions and adjustable headrests. Not to mention the clever and generously appointed storage compartments.

2021 SUN TRACKER PARTY BARGE 18 DLX

Young families seem especially smitten with the Sun Tracker Party Barge, and not just for its affordability. This family-friendly vessel boasts gates that open inward to keep little ones safer, plus tall enough to keep tots inside the play area. Older children, teens, and adults will appreciate the large swim platform and convenient ladder. There’s also plenty of storage room for towels, toys, and lifejackets.

2021 MANITOU 25 LEGACY SL

If you’re looking for high performance as well as comfort, the Manitou 25 Legacy SL comes to mind. Manitou designs and builds pontoon boats that are fast, stable, and stylish. You can customize their models for value or luxury as you desire. However, be warned the aft-facing recliners might make your passengers compete for the most coveted spot to relax and enjoy the view.
