A great place to have a party on the wa­ter is aboard a pontoon boat and, luck­ily for you, there are 16 ex­cel­lent choices to get the party started.

WWho­ever orig­i­nally coined the phrase “put the pedal to the metal” was ob­vi­ously not think­ing of a pontoon boat. But if you sub­sti­tute “throt­tle” for “pedal,” then for the mod­ern pontoon, it works. Thanks to ad­vance­ments in con­struc­tion and de­sign, we’ve now got pontoon boats with per­for­mance at­tributes ca­pa­ble of han­dling big power plants, in­clud­ing both out­boards and stern­drives. That said, the orig­i­nal ’toon mis­sion holds true: carry a lot of peo­ple on the wa­ter in com­fort and pro­vide the space and ameni­ties to en­ter­tain them. The pon­toons we’ve tested here do all of this, which is why as you flip through these pages, we’re con­fi­dent you’ll find one that’s per­fect for you.
