2021 Bennington 23 LSB Boating Review L Line of Pontoon Boats


The “L” designator for this new Bennington series stands for luxury, and the first impression is made by the new horizontal diamond press treatment on the upholstery, executed on our test boat in a graphite color, with Rosa Red accents in Simtex, a vinyl material that has a slight texture that keeps it cool to the touch. Side panels in Rosa Red and Smokey Granite contrast perfectly with the optional Blackout Luxe Edition ($3,594; black finish on the rails, deck trim and skirt, Bimini frame and boarding ladder). You may prefer a different color, but we found this look to be really handsome... Read the complete Boating review of the 2021 Bennington L Swingback Pontoon Boat:


With the introduction and success of the R Bowrider last year, consumer demand has lead us to offer a Bowrider in the L series with a lower price-point.


We raised the bar on pontoon design by lowering the bow area and incorporating the industry’s first step-down U-Lounge™ seating area. This step-down bow allows for our exclusive Vantage-Point™ Captain’s View, where both the captain and co-captain will experience clear, unobstructed sightlines making it even easier to drive and dock. As the captain and co-captain, you’ll also find it easier to have a conversation with friends and family in the bow. The lower seating position works similar to stadium seating allowing for eye contact with each of your guests. You’ll also find 2 of the latest USB and USB-C high-speed charging stations in the U-Lounge’s deep lumbar storage pockets.


The L Bowrider's sporty low-profile bow enhances visibility while also giving the boat a distinct aggressive stance. A stainless steel grab handle at the helm is standard, making stepping up and down a breeze.


Both the R & L line of Bowriders are designed and engineered around our patented integrated V-Hull™ Performance Package while still conveniently fitting into a standard boating and tritoon trailer. The V-shaped center hull not only gives you smooth top-of-the-line performance and control with engines up to 300HP but also allows for 2 to 3 oversized in-floor storage compartments included as standard equipment. The L bowrider comes in lengths of 23 and 25 feet with Bennington’s 2 most popular aft furniture configurations, the multi-function swingback and quad bench with fastback featuring rear speakers that extend the entertainment zone beyond the interior of the boat. The swingback models are also available with an open sport arch.


You have to check out a Bennington Bowrider in person to see what benefits the Bowrider has to offer. Find with your local dealer to experience the Bowrider difference for yourself.
