Pontoon boat accessories can add an extra level of comfort to your boating experience. These boats are extremely popular for very good reason. They can be used for many purposes and can accommodate a large group of people in comfort.
Accessories for pontoon boats can range from the practical to the luxurious. Of course, one person’s necessity can be another person’s luxury. For example, if you enjoy swimming from your pontoon boat you’ll want to add a swim ladder. If you enjoy floating along in a tube near your boat, a ladder will be a practical necessity to climb back on board.
Some type of enclosure or cover can be a welcome addition to your boat. A pontoon boat bimini will provide shade from the hot summer sun and can folded down out of the way when not in use. Pontoon boat playpen covers provide wind protection and camping enclosures can turn your day boat into a floating weekend camper to be enjoyed.
If you enjoy cooking and entertaining on your pontoon boat look at installing a marine grade stainless steel barbecue or grill.
Grills are available that attach to the railing to save space. And if you want to enjoy some cold drinks with your meal you can add a mini fridge. Alternatively a wide range of ice chests are available. Many of the ice chests incorporate pontoon boat seating. They have a seat that is padded and this forms the lid of the ice chest below.
Bench seats incorporating under-bench storage or ice chests provide an ideal use of space. Look for UV stabilized polyethylene construction and always choose marine grade vinyl and strong stitching.
Speaking of seating, don’t forget to have plenty of seating for your guests and perhaps a captain’s chair for the skipper.
Fishermen will be looking for accessories that will improve their fishing experience. Rod holders and bait boards can be attached to the boat’s rails. Likewise, drinks holders attached to the rails can be useful for all passengers.
Marine electronics like a GPS and a fish finder will be useful. A marine AM/FM radio with a CD player can add to the party.
And don’t forget pontoon boat accessories for the kids … of all ages. There are wakeboards, kneeboards, tow tubes, water slides and more that everyone will enjoy.
