Why Choose a Pontoon Boat?

There are many boat types to get you on the water safely; bowriders, bass boats, and catamarans, just to name a few. But pontoon boats are arguably the most versatile option on the market today. And these aren’t your grandparents’ toons. 

Sometimes called ‘the SUV of boats’, pontoons are perfect for the active lifestyle because they can seamlessly transition from fishing adventures to towing tubes or water skiers to anchoring and enjoying a picnic lunch. 

They also offer more interior space and a higher passenger capacity than other boat types used for family recreation. That means plenty of room for family, friends, coolers, and other water sports equipment. Unlike a bowrider, you won’t be tripping over excess gear lying in your way. 

Pontoon boats are also exceptional for adventures in the early spring or fall because they provide a smoother and drier ride than other boats. With higher sides to eliminate water splashing into the cabin and elements like nosecones, spray fins, and wave tamers, pontoon boats keep you warm, dry, and comfortable on the water.

Speaking of the ride, pontoons provide more seating options and interior layouts than most other boats. Some examples include forward and rear-facing lounges, daybeds, bartop seating, fishing chairs, and captains/co-captains chairs.

Finally, pontoon boats are easy to clean and maintain, especially for new boat owners. Outboard motors last for years, as long as you stick to their normal maintenance schedule. And the fully water-resistant interior means it’s easy to hose off and wipe down between uses.

    Just purchased the 22 ft nepollo back in October of 2024 and stored it for the winter and got it out a week ago and was going to install a garmin depth fish finder on it and could not find the fuse box tell me it has a fuse box

    • Carl Corder says:

      Hi Lloyd,

      Thanks for your question! We reached out to the manufacturer who said there is not a fuse box but individual breakers. To install the Garmin, you should add it to the back of the breaker under the helm.

  • Arthur says:

    Good Morning,
    What is the cannister that is located under the Aft Port seat cushion. It has a hose leading to the engine and one leading to a port on the side of the boat.


  • Cameron says:

    Wanting to install depth finder on QA 18, it seems the brackets on the back of pontoons are above bottom of pontoon. To get a good reading I’ve read transducer should be a little below pontoon. Any suggestions? Most brackets that come with finders are not long enough to achieve that.

    • Cameron says:

      Thanks for the reply Conner, I do have a garmin 93sv uhd and 54 transducer. I leveled from bottom of pontoon and measured to the bottom of the welded bracket and it was 3 1/2 inches. Transducer bracket just don’t get it down to bottom of pontoon. You mentioned fabricating my own bracket, would a little thicker piece of straight stainless plate bolted onto pontoon bracket sticking an inch or so below existing bracket cause any excessive spray or wash that would interfere with the transducer at higher speeds ?

    • Conner Lund says:

      Hey Cameron,

      Your transducer bracket should be welded to the starboard side pontoon as far down as possible. This should allow most transom-mounted transducers to be under the pontoon when secure. It’s possible the bracket was welded in the wrong spot, or it’s just a bit higher than some other models. Every boat is different, so even if your transducer is not completely below the pontoon, you should be able to make a drop bracket without too much effort. Most local marinas would likely be happy to care for you if you’re uncomfortable doing the job yourself. Check out our selection of transducers ; just make sure you get one that is compatible with your monitor if you don’t already have one. The Raymarine CPT, for example, hangs down pretty far.

  • Barb says:

    Will these pontoons fit in a 7′ high garage door

    • Carl Corder says:

      Hi Barb, thanks for your question. A Nepallo on a trailer with it’s bimini in the down position is 8’3” tall from the ground to the top of helm.

  • Cathy says:

    I was wondering how good the pontoons are
