Pontoon boat is a flat-deck boat containing two or more floating hulls or tubes typically powered by an outboard engine. They generally have either square or rectangular shapes, which makes them less suitable for choppy or rough water; however, they are widely preferred in lakes where they are used for varied functions, such as entertainment, fishing, and lounging. These boats have large deck space, which adds more seating space, luxury, comfort, extra storage space, and additional room for various activities as per users’ interest.
The global pontoon boat market is projected to depict an impressive growth rate over the next five years to reach an estimated value of US$ 3,638.8 million in 2023. Increasing new boat sales, versatile usage of pontoon boats, advancement in the boat engine technology, and higher affordability of pontoon boats are some of the major factors mushrooming the demand for pontoon boats globally.
There is a growing trend of family outing, partying, as well as fishing activities on pontoon boats over other boats.
