Industry Leading Design and Construction
Cross Channels: Our channels are twice as thick as those used by many of our competitors. Bennington’s taller 3” channel provides more vertical strength than the typical 2” channel. The heavy-duty cross channels combined with our extruded M-deck brackets and Fanged Elevator bolted deck construction minimizes deck twisting ensuring your Bennington will provide the most solid, quiet pontoon ride in the industry. 3” tall, .250” thick cross channels standard in bow and stern locations. 3” tall, .125” thick cross channels standard in mid ship locations.
Our ergonomic design approach offers the industry's most sophisticated seating. All Bennington seating features exclusive Icon Soft-Touch Upholstery. The Infinity Topcoat is engineered for ultimate UV stability, easy cleaning, resistance to abrasions, mildew and stains. A Satin texture weave backing allows for smooth, tailored, instant-recovery upholstery with no puckering, or bagging. The unique high density foam used in five compressions provides the perfect combination of support and plush comfort.
4-Sided Anodized Welding: 1.25" Rails are serrated for strength and good looks, welded on 4 sides (not 2) and anodized after welding for a superior finish.
M-Deck Brackets: Extruded (.125") deck brackets are thicker and stronger than thin sheet aluminum brackets. Our stern deck brackets have 4 points of contact, distributing weight evenly over the end cap, the strongest part of the tube. We space our deck brackets wider and lower than our competitors, greatly reducing the amount of twisting and racking the deck can experience while in rough water.
Full-length Keels: Full length keels protect the tubes in shallow water and improve tracking while underway. Optional solid keels are recommended for use in salt water.
Floors: All flooring is glued and stapled.
Consoles: One piece fiberglass consoles with plug and play waterproof Duetsch connectors virtually eliminates the possibility of electrical damage.
Shrink Wrap: Each boat is individually wrapped with protective cloth and double shrink wrapped to ensure perfection at time of delivery.
Deutsch Connectors & Wiring: All wiring harnesses feature marine grade, waterproof connectors. All under-deck wiring is encased in conduit.
Reinforced Bow Radius Channels: Bow decks and corners are reinforced with a .250" radius bow channel that supports the heavy-gauge anodized aluminum bow trim. Stronger than bow corner castings, they are less susceptible to damage.
Heavy Duty Stainless Fittings: Cleats and stern corners are made of stainless steel, providing 3 times the strength of aluminum castings. They won't pit, corrode or discolor.
Quick Release Bimini: Tops raise and lower in seconds with our patented quick-release fittings designed to eliminate all rattles.
Heavy Duty Rail System with drainage. The rail system is a solid, rattle free structure thanks to supportive aesthetics and a resilient sealing strip that’s placed between each panel and railing touch point. Rail spacers are placed between the deck and rail allowing easy deck drainage and ventilation to reduce mold and mildew.
