Craftmanship You Can Count On.
Don't take our word for it, simply take a closer look at our fleet of expertly
crafted pontoons. Decades of building exceptional boats have taught us that
true quality comes from meticulous construction and attention to detail.
Compare our hat-channel and cross channel construction with the foundations of
other pontoons. Count the fasteners. Note the heft of the aluminum gauge. What
sets us apart is in the details. To see our selection of Pontoon Boats,

DOES YOUR BOAT HAVE OUR CONSTRUCTION? Other
manufacturers use C-channel designs which can require more cross members and
provide less strength than Starcraft's hat-channel construction. And with
imbalanced weight distribution, C-channel cross members are less able to
withstand the forces exerted on the pontoon year after year.
CROSS CHANNEL CONSTRUCTION: Provides superior chassis
strength. The transom area is supported with up to 3/16" hat-channel
construction using twice the number of fixtures as other pontoons. This
provides the strength needed to handle the high torque of today’s large
CONSTRUCTED FOR ENDURANCE: 3/4", 7-ply marine
treated plywood through-bolted and screwed to the hat channels to create the
strongest seams in the industry. ("Heavy" hat-channel shown).
FENCE & 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.
THROUGH-BOLTED TRANSOM: Made of up to .190" gauge
aluminum and supported with up to 20 stainless bolts to handle today's higher
4-POINT DECK TO HULL FUSION: Starcraft deck brackets
have 4 points of fusion for an extended area of contact with the tube. In
addition to providing increased strength and support, this reduces frame twist
and racking in rough water and guards against tube fatigue.
HAT-CHANNEL CONSTRUCTION: It all begins with strength
points of .250” (heavy) and .125” (standard) gauge extruded aluminum
hat-channels that are 6" wide and secured with 8 bolts spanning our 6" wide
deck risers. This creates the widest base in the industry and gives our
pontoons greater stability without adding unnecessary weight. Combine that
with a .190" gauge aluminum transom that's through-bolted with up to 20
bolts and footed deck risers that prevent tube fatigue, and you see why
Starcraft backs its industry-leading construction with a Limited Lifetime
Warranty on every product. ("Heavy" hat-channel shown.)
