I think it will be back when it warms up. The guys that are still on the water seem to be more "performance" types, and less the deck boat and entertaining types.

Maybe the pontoon crew is out in their SxS's this time of year?

I don't see them going away, but maybe the rush is over for now?

I think the time of year has more to do with it than toons loosing their appeal

I ordered one after the LA Boat show, should be here in May.

That said I am usually on the trailing edge of most trends...

In my opinion they are severely gouging people on price for some of them. I looked at a new twin Manitou last year and they wanted close to $180k for the damn thing. They look like a lot of fun but $180k? Kiss my ass!

We're toonless.
Waiting for either a pristine used one or a deal on a new one.
Haven't found either yet
We have time.
I have two, which one you want??? both 250 hp, one dual helm and rear loungers, one people hauler,.. and both triple axel trailers..

Translation - I’m getting desperate to sell my pontoon(s) :)
I haven't advertised them no where but here...when and if I get desperate i'll put them on boat trader, craigslist and offer up...they probley won't last a week on craigs list...this isn't really a good place to sell boats as most either have a boat or no money

New Pontoons are still selling like hot cakes.. Reston continues to sell twin rigs and singles weekly.

Indont think the bubble has burst on the pontoons. Magic’s are still crazy too!

Is that the one with the 2 consoles?
Takes up a lot of room. I forget, does it have a windshield or you took it off?
I took it off and made custom wind screen/ shields..

does it seem colder this year???
I haven’t noticed, boating with a jacket and a beanie seems to be the same this year.

Actually, the wind coming up thru the middle of the toon deck has been just chilly enough to make me slow down a bit.
I haven’t had time to have the door made between the consoles and under middle windshield.

rear loungers are cool ,but flip side to that is it goes from 6 seats to 2... the other thin g with the windshield is it cuts the toon in half as conversation with those in front doesn't happen , so like to separate partys going on..

Detail Specialties just posted a brand new Bennington on FB with twin 400's in for a detail before delivery. Wait till the weather warms up. I think we are in for a busy summer that includes all types of boats.

And the factory messed up the options so they told the new owner to just keep it until they make a brand new one and deliver it in August !

yup! everyone is going back to 18' flat bottoms, better get with the program. You can get all the engine noise you want.
