The Size

You are going to want to match the size of your pontoon to the number of guests you anticipate having on board.

As one would assume, the bigger the pontoon boat, the more people you can have on board!  

Most pontoon boats have a capacity plate, which will tell you the max capacity typically by number of people and by weight.


Two Tube vs Triple Tube

Two tubes can be run with minimal horsepower, and will provide the maneuverability and stability that is perfect for the entertainers, loungers, and anglers.

That said, our water friends who fall into the water sport enthusiasts will be happiest with a triple tube pontoon boat, which is known for speed and performance.  While the triple tube will cost more money, they provide the higher horsepower and speed that is needed to get the most out of water sports.



Engines can range from 40HP - 250Hp and higher.  It truly depends on the application of your pontoon boat.  If you only want to cruise around the lake and entertain guests, and really are not in any need for speed, a two tube package with a motor ranging from 40HP-60HP will be just fine.  However, If you are in need for speed and plan on doing some watersports such as skiing and wakeboarding and or want to go from point A to B in a hurry, a triple tube option with higher horsepower is what you will want.  

Check out our pontoon series and be sure to review the two tube and triple tube models, and popular motor options with each model. 


Cost Variables

Pontoon Boat pricing can range from $23,000 - $50,000 and higher.  It all depends on pontoon deck length, brand, quality, tube size, tube selection (two tube or triple tube, extra features, engine size and the model year.
