Premier Pontoon PTX vs Runabout

Nisswa Marine compares a Premier Pontoon PTX paired with a Mercury Verado to a typical runabout. How do the two stack up when it comes to performance, handling, comfort and ease of loading. The results may surprise you.

Pontoons… the minivan of the water. These infomercials are hilarious… and yes, everyone does them, but that does not make it better.
Nice Cobalt’s (232 and a A25) in the video.
This is so biased is could have been created by a Clinton PAC. 🙂

had mine custom made for less then 50k. Sportsman Marina, just south of KC. Best performance boat I have ever owned. We love this boat. only thing I didn’t like was we can’t go faster then 30 mph without the Bimini top unzipping. we have a verado 200 pro. (225 hp), Premier stated in the manual that over 30 will “damage” the bimini. Why would they not fix it and sell big motors knowing it would be an issue. Otherwise nice boat, best I have ever owned.

If you are going to get one then talk to me about the trailering system. After 2 dents and a marriage that was going to fail, when the wife tried to dock the boat on the trailer, I found a failsafe solution. i was leary after trying many different systems. What we bought worked in a 40 mph side wind while trying to land our pontoon and it should come on every trailer. This was the best thing we ever added to the boat, worth the money. I landed a 25 foot boat on a trailer in under 2 minutes without a driver with 40 mph side winds. It is the real deal and I have one on our boat.
