Pontoon Construction

Only Starcraft offers industry-leading deck construction designed to give you years of strength and reliability.

Starcraft’s hat-channel construction begins with up to .250 gauge aluminum hat chase with a 5.8” span, secured with eight bolts. Combine that with a .190 gauge aluminum transom that’s through-bolted with up to 20 bolts and footed deck risers to prevent tube fatigue, and you see why Starcraft backs its industry-leading construction with a Limited Lifetime Warranty on every product.

  1. Cross Channel Construction provides superior chassis strength. The transom area is supported with up to 3/16" hat-channel construction using twice the amount of fixtures compared to other pontoons. This provides the strength to handle the high torque of today's large engines.
  2. Deck and Floor feature 3⁄4", 7-ply pressure-treated plywood through - bolted and screwed to the hat channels to create the strongest seams in the industry. Backed by a Limited Lifetime warranty.
  3. Marine grade carpet is bonded to the deck with marine adhesive and secured around the perimeter with stainless steel fasteners.
  4. Spacers between the fence bottom and the deck allow water to drain easily and cut drying time in half.
  5. Fence and Railing features foam backing to prevent rattling and fully welded and anodized railing to add strength. Anodized welds are never painted. It’s all backed by a 6-year warranty.
  6. Superior Upholstery is covered by a 6-year warranty. We use only the finest quality, UV stabilized, marine-grade 42 ml vinyl, automotive-grade pigments and a Stain Resistant Topcoat. Herringbone backing provides "no-sag" recovery while biocide-treated foam and stainless fixtures add durability. To help it all last, our bases are designed with a moat system that directs water away from the seat and off the boat
  7. Tubes are made with one-piece .080 gauge aluminum with full-length keels and sturdy deck risers. Backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
  8. Transom made of up to .190 gauge aluminum and supported with up to 20 stainless bolts to handle today's higher horsepower engines.
  9. Quick-Release Bimini Top made of aluminum with up to 11⁄4" stainless fixtures features color-matched canvas and easy-to-use push-button system.
  10. Protected Sern Boarding Area available in synthetic teak on the Majestic and Limited series or durable vinyl on the Starfish and Stardeck series. Either way, it provides a great place to dry off after swimming or tubing.
