2021 Bennington New Product Launch Event 01/23/2021 - FAQ & Closing


Hi everyone, thanks for spending time with us today. We'd like to take just a few more minutes to discuss some commonly asked questions.


Where are Bennington's manufactured?
Bennington is located in Elkhart, IN. We were founded in 1997 by a small group of industry veterans that set out to build a boat brand focused on being the best built, never the largest. Those same values are still at the core of Bennington. This has led to our unmatched growth, taking us to the top of the industry for almost 25 years.


What sets the construction of a Bennington apart from other manufacturers?
While other manufacturers screw their decks together, Bennington uses our exclusive Thru-Bolt™ technology. This custom-designed system uses 1/4" stainless steel elevator bolts with prongs and locking nuts that compress the deck and structure together to maximize strength and durability. We also use cross channels that are twice as thick as other manufacturers. All of this, combined with taller I-beams to provide more vertical strength, give Bennington's the most stable and quiet ride in the industry.


What is Simtex Vinyl?
All of our boats come standard with Simtex premium vinyl, a vinyl often found in luxury yachts. Through extensive research, Simtex vinyl has been proven to stay cooler to the touch with its fabric-like texture and weave. We also use multiple levels of foam density to maximize comfort and durability.


Is the warranty transferable?
Not only do we believe in building the highest quality boat in the industry, but we also back it with the industry’s strongest warranty, unlike most, Bennington’s may be transferred to new owners covering the structural and decking for life and the remainder of the 10-year bow-to-stern coverage.


What engine brands can be ordered with a Bennington?
Bennington has relationships with all major engine manufacturers, including Yamaha, Mercury, Suzuki, Honda, Volvo, including manufacturers of electric motors like Torqeedo and MinnKota. We work closely with all the major brands allowing us to outfit and rig your boat with nearly any configuration.
