Pontoon boats are quite popular and it’s no small wonder why. Their versatility makes pontoon boats a great value for the dollar and a boatload of fun in so many ways…important in a locale like Florida where we often like to boat year-round.
Safety first! Pontoon boats are flat and stable for sure footing. They are also surrounded by rails, cementing a pretty safe ride and the fact that pontoon boats are sure to be a family favorite.
Speaking of families, the capacity of pontoon boats is huge which is great for big family outings or socializing with a bunch of friends. Eight people can easily fit aboard a smaller pontoon boat, while a medium pontoon can carry about a dozen, so it’s nothing to invite 14 of your favorite people on board a large pontoon boat and still have plenty of room to stow a bunch of stuff!
You can use pontoon boats for everything from fishing, to crabbing or simply cruising around, taking in the sights and getting some sun; and because they have such a flat bottom, pontoon boats are a great boat choice for island hopping and pulling ashore just about anywhere. Heck, people even get married and hold small receptions on pontoon boats – no lie.
If you are in the market for a pontoon boat, come to the full-service marina that specializes in them. Gerry’s Marina, at 179 N Causeway in New Smyrna Beach, started selling and servicing top-quality new and used pontoon boats over 30 years ago, and has been providing Central Florida with superior sales and service ever since!
