One of the most common questions we’re asked by prospective pontoon boat buyers is “what makes a good deck boat?”
The team at Futrell Marine is known for its pontoon boat technical expertise. So we decided to share some of our knowledge in the the below video boat boat buying blog to help you when researching your next boat purchase.
On thing is certain: there are no shortcuts in building a quality pontoon boat. As a buyer, you need to know some very important facts about boat design, construction and technology to be able to ask the right questions to ensure you buy the best performing boat for your money.
Have you ever looked at something closely in a shop or dealership and walked away feeling it was well designed and beautifully made? Have you ever asked yourself: “what gave me that feeling?”
That sense of premium quality is a combination of things. It’s about clever, innovative design, quality workmanship, careful fit, thoughtful layout … a feeling that the manufacturer has an interest in you and how you will use the product.
Sometime it’s the little things like the sound that’s made when you close the door of a BMW or Mercedes Benz car. Positive. Firm. Superb engineering. Well thought-out.
Think of the contrast with the way a door shuts on the cheapest car on the market. Tinnie, noisy, lightweight, poor fit. It sounds cheap. It has been designed in hope you won’t look too closely and probably won’t care.
The same principle applies with boats. There are very high-quality boats on the market and there are very poor-quality boats – and everything in between.
Beware of boat manufacturers or salespersons making big, unsubstantiated claims. An important piece of advice for those setting out to buy a new boat …. the price tag is no indicator of quality and performance.
Do your due-diligence. If you have any doubts, before you buy the boat, take it out on the water in the chop and put it to the test!
If the salesperson is reluctant to take you out for a water test in the conditions you’d like to see the boat perform in … walk away.
