Many pontoon boats are trailerable, depending on their length.

Engine capacities differ, but most are powered by either 2 or 4-stroke outboard gasoline engines between 10 and 100 hp.

The sponsons are constructed of two or three welded, aluminium tubes that are tapered at the forward ends that assist with movement and speed. You’ll find pontoon tubes are made from wood or fiberglass. The tubes are attached to the rigid deck with an aluminum frame.

For protection from bad weather or scorching sun, add a pontoon boat enclosure over the deck.  This gives protection for your guests and boat furniture. Especially important if you like hosting parties.
