A pontoon boat is a type of recreational boat the uses “pontoons” (also known as floats) to stay on the water. They are flat and rectangular in shape, with some having a second deck and a slide attached, which are called Double-Becker Pontoons.

To simply put it, a houseboat is a home that is floating on the water. The inside of the boat has a kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms to sleep in. Most houseboats have at least two floors and have open space on the roof with a party top. They are great for long stays by the marina and especially for families with children that want to play in and by the waters every day.
A bowrider is a type of runabout boat that is great for everything from leisure boat rides to extreme watersports. The V-shape front of the bowrider helps make sharp turns and cut through the waves. A bowrider is always a safe choice on your trip!
