How Performance Puts Bennington Pontoons Above The Crowd

Bennington pontoons are the best pontoon boats for sale today, bar none. These pontoons are the most powerful, most feature-rich, most performance-tuned boats available, and they will ‘wow’ you at every turn!

Let’s look at some of the great performance features available on these beautiful pontoons, available from some fantastic dealers.

Performance Features

Underdeck Wave ShieldPontoons

The underdeck wave shield helps deflect water from the bottom of your deck, reducing surges and giving the Bennington pontoons their trademark soft, quiet ride in rough water.

Lifting Strakes

Lifting strakes are an awesome feature which adds bow lift, increasing the Bennington pontoon’s handling on choppy water and improving speed by as much as 4.8 mph!

Seastar® Hydraulic Steering

Seastar® hydraulic steering eases your effort with higher horsepower engines. While you will still need two hands for handling hard turns, it significantly reduces the effort needed for most steering. This feature is used on pontoons with engines rated 115 hp or more.

Power-Assist Hydraulic Steering

Power-assist steering uses an electronically-controlled Seastar® hydraulic pump to help with handling and turns with minimal effort from you. This is even more powerful than the previous Seastar® hydraulic steering and is recommended for engines rated 150 hp or more.

Elliptical Sport Package

The Elliptical Sport Package (ESP) is the top-of-the-line for pontoon boat performance. It offers enhanced stability and water displacement with quick planing and handling rivaling a fiberglass sport boat!

The ESP is designed for high horsepower, and while it is option on outboard models it comes standard on Bennington inboard/outboard models! The ESP includes 2-25” diameter outer pontoons with performance foils, a patented 32” elliptical center pontoon with lifting strakes and an underdeck wave shield. That is an awesome sport package!
