Hey RDP Fam!

The LUXE Team can't thank everyone for all the love & support at Desert Storm + Super Cat Fest West last weekend. Besides the events being epic with awesome weather, it was our pleasure meeting new friends, seeing familiar faces & high-fiving high-fivers. We're proud to bring these Exotic Sport Tritoons to life & carve out a new class of pontoons that seems to be welcomed by all. So again, thank you for the hospitality & warm welcome.

Just in case you're not doing the social media life, here's a rough aerial cut of Chasetoon 003+001 during Speed Boat Magazines shoot:


We also share fresh content weekly on our builds via Facebook & Instagram so if you're interested in seeing more, feel free to dive into our adventure here:

I got the grand tour of #3 at the street fair. What a nice piece!

In a sea of mechanical cool stuff, multi-million dollar rockets and cruisers, your "pontoon" stood out. That's an impressive piece that was on display.

Yea I’ve sat back with a well idk attitude, however after seeing them at the street party, then on the water, I’m damned impressed. If we were ready for a toon it’d be the top of the list right now.

The best glimpse I got was the new red one on the WB40 Friday afternoon as I was heading east. :(

I think you have a great product. That is a functional and stylish toon. Probably one of the best I have ever seen.

I like the hardtop. Just a thought. If your hardtop was styled like a Mystic hardtop. It would give a natural grab handle for those on the fold out catwalk. This is because the rear would attach the gunwale, like it does on the Mystic. You could also have a power Shure Shade built into hardtop, for rear. Then a pole and hook shade cover for front. Still stylish.

That is not criticism of your great looking boat. It is just an idea to ad even more style points, to an already fantastic looking boat.

Finally a pontoon that isnt put together like a toy hauler. I hope you guys crush the market. These toons are badass and the features are too cool. I love the submerged step between the weedwhackers. Beautiful water sleds.

@C-Ya Thank you for the feedback. We do love Mystic's floats... stunning works of art.

Hmmm maybe next time you’re in the channel you can not try to run boats over and cut in line. Just a thought lol.

@Dirtbag Thank you! One of the Team's top objectives was to build Chasetoons STOUT; almost "over-built". Obviously, function, comfort, elegance, & styling we're near the top but one attribute that's etched in this Team of craftsmen & that's quality.

Quite possible it was the owner of the boat, and not the builder...
But hey, what do I know...
@monkeyswrench <--- that's an idea. Builder/boat owner, I'm sure it was an accident, unintentional & quite possibly the last thing a LUXE Owner or Teammate would want to do with a Chasetoon. But I AM guessing @Blackmagic94 got a better view than @throttle did. Haha. Bad joke & too soon. Be safe out there all!

I saw the Red one with the 400s hauling the mail. Pulls the front end up good.

@Englewood Chasetoons start at $310 & scale via power package. Ct001 has duel 300R's & it cruses 53 (loaded). We haven't push out a top speed test aka: downwind, low fuel, one person, down river in optional conditions.

Well I was the driver so who did I run over or cut off? Was it the guy in the jet boat?

It was me.
Ok well before you make accusations about someone hauling ass and cutting people off in the channel which was not true. Unfortunately jet boats can be difficult to drive and it seemed you were having some trouble getting side ways and controlling the boat. I chose to go around you rather than backing up the entire channel waiting for you. I was not hauling ass do to the amount of boats in the channel, I’ve been boating and driving boats my entire life. Also I’ve been through the channel probably more times than most have been on the boat and never had one issue or accident.

I wasn’t in a jet boat. Sounds like you did this rodeo a few times then

LOL sorry but no. I didn’t even use the throttle, forward, neutral and reverse. I know exactly which boat you were in, I thought maybe is was a seado style boat. Anyways sorry if thought I cut you off but that wasn’t the case. Unfortunately you didn’t have the best control of your boat and rather then me blocking the channel I maneuvered around you safely.

Lol now this is funny. I was at a dead stop because the boat in front of me which is my family was stopped as well for a boat parking. You came so close to my stern that I was unable to put my drive in reverse to bring it back in straight because you thought it was appropriate to pass on the right as the whole lane was stopped. I motioned you to stop moving forward so I could swing around but maybe you didn’t see that hand motion with the 40 people on your bow. I gave a wth as you passed on the right to only stop so close to my brother in laws boat that he yelled at you to not crash into his cleavers on his NXTs. I yelled and said it’s cool bro we can hash this out on RDP later and here we are now


You admitting to passing me rather hitting reverse and being polite and letting me get uncrossed because you were up my ass. If you have boated all your life it didn’t show. The coast guard 100 ton captain you almost hit didn’t think so either.

No matter who is at fault, the channel on a regular week is tough.....during DS and Super Cat it is fucking crazy.

What about taking the two seats out in front of the helm and make a little changing room/toilet/spot to get out of the sun? Maybe even a small a/c unit for the kiddos? I think that would great.

Your toons are amazing. Great job!!!

I see a lot of yachts with an assortment of toys…….

The toon in this thread could easily become another one of those toys. It would need to have davit hooks installed at the balance point so it could be lift onto deck or a collapsable hardtop to go into yacht garage. I know I would give that thing a hell of a run in the Bahamas. BTW, I have never seen a pontoon boat in the Bahamas! Lol

BUT……. I did see a 19’ Larson deckboat at Tahiti Beach on Elbow Cay. The guy told me he boated it from FTL. I was blown away! That’s 180 miles from FTL in a Lake Boat. My beer wouldn’t fit in that boat! Lol

Such a cool and well executed concept. Curt always does a good job guiding his team to keep up with and even set the current trends.

Yes. They did a great job with these things.

Personally I’d give up the retracting side(s) for a larger hard top.. I know that isn’t an option currently but more shade would be cool. They do have the pop up shade options for when you are beached that address that partially.

With all the ingenuity involved with something like this, or any of the other high end deals, seems like the hardtop could be made to extend both forward and back. It would probably have to be made of carbon fiber though, or something else like it, to maintain rigidity.

I am not in their marketing department. But if I was…….. One of those boats would be heading to Boot Düsseldorf, The Worlds Largest Indoor Boat Show. People fly from all over the world for this event.

I can easily see these being sold in Dubai and Saudi Arabia. Believe it or not……. Saudi Arabia has some beautiful boating areas. On 2 different coasts too. No shortage of funds. My friends sold custom sand cars in Saudi. Average price 15 years ago for a sandcar in Saudi, was $175k for what we could buy for 60k at the time, as an example.

I’m sure they will have some customers who’s bank accounts are as big as their imagination which will equal some cool new options and/or layouts.
