Here in Kanabec County, Minnesota we love nothing more than spending our weekends out on the water and it is a pastime which has gone down through the ages. The most popular boat on the water? The pontoon of course, the boat of choice for the large majority of residents here. The pontoon is a fantastic boat and in Tramms Pontoons we have the perfect one-stop shop for all of our pontoon needs from welding to customizations. But what is it about the pontoon that the people here in Kanabec County, Minnesota and beyond love so much? Well here are just a handful of reasons as to why the boat is so popular across the country.
As long as they are properly cared for a pontoon boat can last for a lifetime and this is a huge draw for a boat such as this. In fact here on the water we often see boats which have been passed on down through the generations. These boats are very sturdy and they are made with high quality materials, making them the perfect boat for the ages.
Although you will see the water filled with pontoons on any given Saturday here in Kanabec County, Minnesota, you will struggle to see two that are alike. The reason for this is that the pontoon is a very easy boat to customize and the design of the vessel really lends itself to this. The deck is large and strong which means that you can add anything from a hot tub to a bar, a seating area to a fully specced out kitchen. There are really no limits when it comes to customizing these boats and this again is why it has become such a popular vessel.
The pontoon is easily one of the simplest boats to drive and that makes it perfect for beginners. Each weekend you will see young teenagers given their first try on the pontoon and they very rarely have problems. The turning arc is small and the flexibility and stability of the boat means that beginners can right mistakes very easily indeed. Not all boats are easy to handle but the pontoon provides the perfect place for beginners to learn and understand the way that a boat moves, skills which they can then use on bigger boats in the future.
Some boats can be complex to dock but not the pontoon, this is a boat which can be docked from either end and the low power of the boat makes it a cinch to roll up slowly to the water’s edge. Even beginners have little problem when it comes to docking the pontoon, yet another benefit of these well-crafted boats.
If you are looking for a perfect weekend boat, the pontoon makes for a fantastic option for you and the family.
