The Art of Performance
Maximize your experience with one of Bennington's optional performance packages, offering increased handling and maneuverability.
ESP: ELLIPTICAL SPORT PACKAGE
ESP offers stability, performance, planing ability and a sharp turn radius for a "banking" turn. Designed with a patented 32" elliptical center tube and twin performance foils, ESP displaces more water and sits higher in the water for a smooth, dry ride that rivals a fiberglass monohull. Package comes with two 25" diameter pontoons with performance foils, 32" center elliptical tube with lifting strakes, SeaStar® hydraulic steering and an underdeck waveshield. We recommend the additional Power-Assist Steering option for engines greater than 150 hp.
STANDARD PERFORMANCE PACKAGE
A Bennington Performance Package provides additional bow lift, planing ability and increased performance. Package includes three 25" diameter tubes, underdeck waveshield and SeaStar® hydraulic steering. Add Lifting Strakes for additional speed. Add Power Steering for engines greater than 150 hp.
TWIN 32" ELLIPTICAL PONTOONS
Add our exclusive elliptical pontoons plus lifting strakes to your boat for incredible 2-tube performance, easily achieving speeds around 30 mph with as little as 90 - 115 hp*. Each elliptical pontoon adds over 1,000 lbs. of additional buoyancy, allowing the boat to sit higher & run faster. The width of the elliptical pontoons also increases deck stability both fore & aft as well as side to side.
*Boat speeds vary based on load, water conditions, passengers, etc.
EXPRESS TUBE PACKAGE
The Express Tube Package offers increased bow lift and moderately increased speed and maneuverability as an affordable alternative to a full-fledged performance package. Package includes a modified center tube and modified waveshield. Add SeaStar® hydraulic steering for engines greater than 115 hp (25" tubes required).
Deflects water from the bottom of the deck, which reduces "surging" and enhances the soft, quiet ride in rough water.
Add bow lift, which increases handling across choppy water and improves speed as much as 4.8 miles per hour, depending on engine selection. For optimum performance, llifting strakes are recommended only for engines rated 115 hp or greater and for boats exceeding 30 mph. Lifting strakes are recommended for 90 hp or greater on boats with Twin Elliptical Pontoons.
SEASTAR® HYDRAULIC STEERING
Eases steering effort with higher horsepower engines. Expect two-handed handling in hard turns. Recommended for engines rated 115 or greater.
POWER-ASSIST HYDRAULIC STEERING
Power-Assist Steering is powered by an electronically controlled hydraulic pump connected to the SeaStar® system. The electric pump "does the work for you" so the driver can expect incredible handling and turning with little effort. Recommended for engines rated 150 or greater.
