  • Pontoon or tritoon

    All,

    looking for used pontoon or tritoon for next summer. Need a 90 hp motor at minimum, would prefer larger. 24-25 feet in length would be ideal. I’m located in southern Wisconsin, so something in this area would be best.

    Let me know what you have.

    Thanks!

    Tritoon all day!!

    Do not get anything smaller on a tritoon or a pontoon less than 115 hp. If you want to go 20mph or less than it doesn't matter, but 25ft boat is a lot of boat and takes lots of HP. Tritoon with a 150 to 200 will do the trick.

      Cost benefit equation.

      Smaller pontoons often have small diameter tubes. These may do fine with a couple people and 25 hp on a pond but put 8 people in with 150 hp and they wont move worth a crap. So then there are bigger diameter tubes more float more surface and the boat will get up qnd scoot but still not enough surface for lots of people. Thats where a center tube comes in.

      If you just wanna putter about at 8mph nearly any toon will work. to pull 20mph youll need big toons and about 120hp and from there the sky is the limit.

        A Bennington dealer near me will sell a single toon. If I bought a pontoon I’d buy a third toon and bolt it in the middle.

        Ideally I’d get a tritoon with a 200-250 but they’re ridiculously expensive these days.

          No way I’d buy a regular pontoon after being on a tri. Not even the same ballpark

              Does he tow a second tri toon deck behind him with a fuel tank on the deck? Lol
