It’s getting dangerously close to boating season and if you are like me you are probably dreaming about floating out on the water in a new pontoon boat! Some of us have never owned our own pontoon before (including myself!). If you are out there looking for your first pontoon here is a list of the top “entry level” pontoon boats available to get out on the lake this 2018 season!
Owning your very first boat is certainly a big and expensive step, so understandably cost is going to be on the top of many first time boat owners’ minds. Luckily some of the major pontoon boat manufacturers have a nice entry level model that will help us get on the water without having to take a second mortgage out on your house! These models below all represent a good mix of affordability and dependability for a good entry level model from some of the best pontoon boat brands. For comparison’s sake, we choose to compare prices for either 19’ or 20’ pontoon boats, however, if you are looking for a different by all means see what you can find, whether that’s picking out a smaller boat, or going big for your first pontoon boat!
