Welcome to Bennington Pontoons

If you’re new to Bennington, pontoons, or boating in general, this guide will help you get started. Learn what makes Bennington the world’s leading premier pontoon boat manufacturer, how to determine what’s the right pontoon for you, the cost of owning a pontoon boat, boating safety, and more.

Bennington offers a range of highly customizable pontoons to fit your needs. When selecting your next pontoon, you’ll want to consider the following:

Size & Layout

How many people will you regularly have on board? Consider how you want to sit and interact with your friends and family on board.



Will you be boating on larger, potentially rougher water? You may want to consider a larger boat (longer in length, 10 ft. wide) and/or a tri-toon or upgraded performance package.



Water Type 

Wondering if there are performance considerations available for saltwater? If you’ll be on saltwater, make sure to order the Saltwater Ready package.


How will you use your boat? We have unique layouts designed for specific applications including Fishing, Sport, Bar and Dining, Cruising and more. Also, consider some of our performance upgrade packages or arches depending on the activities you’ll be doing.


Will you need to tow the boat frequently? If you are trailering your boat, keep in mind that the size of boat will directly impact the size of the vehicle and trailer needed to tow it.



Bennington pontoons are highly customizable to suit various price points and budget.

Boating Safety

It is critical to have the boating information, equipment and certifications you need to be a safe boater before you hit the water. In fact, a number of states require powerboat operators to take a boater’s education course and carry a license or certificate proving successful course completion any time they're on the water. Check with your local state government for the rules that apply where you boat.
