Hull shape or seats to drive your Pontoon boat selection?

Note all that is going on in the shape of the Pontoons on Harris Flotebote

Do the shape and number of tubes start to set you are a course of saying this Harris Floteboat is the next boat for your family or does Mom and the kids try-out the seats and say “this is our next boat”?

There is a choice now in what a pontoon boat like the Harris Floteboat and other brands can do with water sports and cruise destinations. Much of those selections are driven by the hull shape, not the seating, and its up to you to figure what the family’s needs are and what hull features will deliver on those needs.  

As they say…On-the-water pontoon performance is more than just straight-away speed. That’s why all of our pontoons deliver figure-eight-precise handling, silky smooth riding and holeshot that gets you up and on plane in no time – all at maxi­mum fuel efficiency. But if you’re looking for an entirely new level of performance – one that will leave other pontoon boats even further behind – opt for the exclusive Performance III package.

The Performance III package features a unique V-step design that lowers the center tube to create a sport boat-like “vee” hull. Our center tube slices through the water for an even smoother ride. In addition, our stepped running surface improves ventilation that creates a hydrodynamic release increasing speed and acceleration. The V-Step design combined with the full underdeck aluminum skin prevents drag caused by the exposed cross members, dramatically increasing performance.

Our tube-in tube design allows for optimal placement of the integrated 50-gallon fuel tank by positioning it below the deck and centered in the rear of the boat, as opposed to hanging over the end of the tube.  And due to the innovative design and placement angle of our interior lifting strakes, outer ones are not needed, which results in a smoother, more controlled ride without sacrificing holeshot…
