15 Most Expensive Pontoon Boats

Getting a pontoon boat is one of the best ways to be able to host larger gatherings on the water with friends, family, pets, and plenty of fun. If you don’t have a limited budget, you should definitely check out the most expensive pontoon boats.

These models are on the opposite end of the spectrum from the worst pontoon boats to avoid and some of them even have the ability to tow select watersports equipment behind them.

Most of these pontoon boats, however, are more about luxury and lounging than they are about power and towing ability. So we’re going to focus on highlighting their luxury features in our pontoon boat reviews.

Let’s get started!

The Avalon Catalina Funship is a double-decker pontoon boat that’s perfect for family fun. You’ll love tanning on the second-level sundeck while your kids see how many times they can go down the slide in one day.

The slide critically comes with a water pump so that nobody hurts themselves on a dry, sticky slide. This boat is also equipped with a ski tow bar and enough horsepower for you to teach the kids how to water ski behind it.

The stereo system is great for filling the summer airwaves with your favorite tunes and the upper deck features a queen-sized lounge. If you need to retreat out of the sun, however, the lower deck offers plenty of shade on hot days with no cloud coverage.

There’s plenty of built-in storage on this pontoon boat and the helm comes with plenty of modern conveniences that any boat captain will enjoy. That includes a built-in GPS, depth finder, speedometer, and plenty of USB ports for charging all your devices.

  • Dry Weight: 4,211 pounds
  • Fuel Capacity: 63 gallons
  • Maximum Horsepower: 400 HP

The Harris Crowne DL 250 is an award-winning, handcrafted work of art just as much as it is a high-performing pontoon boat. Its sleek lines make it one of the most visually appealing boats on our list.

It is available in single-engine and dual-engine designs, but both include a nice canopy to provide shade on sunny days. The tower also includes a ski tow bar so that you can tow a water skier or several people on a towable tube behind it.

It’s also available with either 25-inch or 27-inch tubes, which impact the boat’s bridge clearance, weight, and carrying capacity. Obviously, the model with the larger tubes weighs more and can carry more while also having slightly higher bridge clearance.

The rear lounge on this boat has plenty of space for two and can even fit a third on the smaller seat to the port side. It also features a rear swim deck with a diving platform to help you showcase your water-entry skills to your friends and family.

The Barletta EX23Q Slide-Toon is easily one of the most unique pontoon boats on our list and you could probably tell that just from the name. It literally slides open to provide more deck space for your pontoon gatherings.

The revolutionary technology in this pontoon boat allows the deck to expand to 14’10”. It is the first-ever production-ready expanding pontoon boat in the industry and it is safety certified by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA).

In addition to its expanding deck, it is also equipped with several luxury features including a spacious swim deck with “Yeti-Ready” cupholders, an integrated dish for pet food and/or water at the helm, and woven marine flooring throughout the entire deck.

This pontoon boat is also equipped with hydraulic and power-assist steering, an upgraded Hertz marine stereo system, a tube-tow watersports cage with dedicated fender storage, and a sail shade to provide sun protection on cloudless days.

The Select 324SS from Suncatcher Pontoons offers plenty of wraparound lounge seating for large gatherings and rain-drain channels underneath all of the cushions ensure dry storage underneath all of the seats on this pontoon boat.

Hydraulic steering makes it easy for drivers to handle and floor-level courtesy lights help to keep everyone safe on evening cruises. Speaking of evening cruises, you’ll love the option to include a slider refreshment center on this boat.

Several other standard features that are worth highlighting include a ski tow package, a high-density foam pedestal table with cup holders, and a contoured bimini top to provide shade when your passengers need it.

We think you’ll also love the premium Jensen radio receiver on this pontoon boat. It’s compatible with Bluetooth, iPods, and MPS players so you can keep your favorite tunes playing while you are on the water.

If you’re looking for something with a little more space, Suncatcher’s Elite 326 DLX SS pontoon boat is also worth a second look. You and your spouse will love the high-back captain’s chairs in the center of this boat and your passengers will love the rest of the seating throughout.

That includes two more rear-facing loungers on the stern deck, a semi-wraparound lounge on the starboard side at the bow, and two more swivel pedestal seats on the port side towards the bow.

The stern also features a privacy enclosure so you can convert the area to a tanning deck or aft couch. When you do go swimming, however, the four-step stern entry ladder makes getting back onto this pontoon boat a breeze.

The Elite 326 model is also equipped with power-assist steering, deck mount navigation lights, docking lights, a premium Polk stereo with four blue-light speakers, and LED mood lighting throughout.

The final model on our list from Suncatcher Pontoons is the Fusion 324 RCX. It’s a great boat with several awesome built-in technological features in the command center, such as Lowrance Hook Reveal 5 and Simrad GO5 XSE fishfinders.

It also happens to be one of the lightest pontoon boats on our list, which makes it a great choice if you need to tow it with a slightly smaller truck. Still, it boasts plenty of Suncatcher’s best luxury pontoon features.

That includes a flip-up lounge headrest that provides extra storage in addition to the compartments underneath all the seats and loungers. There are some great options to choose from in this couch storage system, including a built-in trash can, a privacy enclosure, tackle tray storage, and more.

The Fusion pontoon boat is also outfitted with a direct remote fuel system that makes refueling much easier. This system is located right in the motor pod and if you upgrade to the tri-log model your fuel capacity will expand up to 46 gallons.

The Manitou XT pontoon boats are available in several different floor plans, but we like the rear-facing X-treme windshield model because it offers full wind protection for both the driver and the passenger.

This boat comes with dual engines that can give you up to 900 horsepower for towing people behind the boat. This makes it one of the most powerful pontoon boats out there and makes it ideal for people interested in more than just lounging around on their boat.

Some of the Manitou’s best standard features include a power arm bimini top, two displays with Garmin GPSmap technology, a Garmin Quatix watch, and a JL Audio Bluetooth sound system with six LED speakers and a 10-inch subwoofer.

The Premier Escalante 350 CL pontoon boat is the longest model on our list and only the second design that offers an upper deck. The 12-foot deck on this boat is easily accessible via a walk-up staircase (instead of a ladder).

It also offers a nine-foot bimini for plenty of shade, two loungers, and a slide for keeping the kids entertained. The 10-foot lower deck on this boat also means it offers the most deck real estate of any model on our list, which is why it also has a higher seating capacity.

The Escalante also features multiple wireless phone charging pockets, wraparound lounge seating at the bow, an automatic dual-battery control system, and magnetic surfaces with included drinkware to help minimize spills.

It also features one of the most well-equipped galleys you will find on any pontoon boat. That includes a refrigerator, composite countertops, electric sink, and built-in changing room with Curve Porta Potti.

  • Seating Capacity: 15-19

The Grand Entertainer from Premier Marine is available with either an 8’6” or 10’ beam if you need extra deck space. The Entertainer bar is the centerpiece of this pontoon boat, and it boasts the kinds of appliances you need to keep all your guests entertained and satiated.

That includes a cabana top with stemware holders, an electric sink and refrigerator, four bar stools, a bottle holder, sink strainer, ice bucket, stainless steel drawer system with locks, and LED cabana top lights.

The spotter’s chair in this boat is a great place for your co-pilot to help you navigate unfamiliar waterways and the Mirage changing room gives everyone privacy to get out of swimsuits and into warmer clothes as the evening air cools down.

The Grand Entertainer is also equipped with a healthy JL Audio stereo system with four M3 speakers, a Simrad 12-inch fishfinder display, a wireless charging phone mount, and RGB lights throughout.

The Boundary Waters Revolution Walk-On pontoon boat from Premier Marine definitely gives the Escalante a run for its money. It boasts a 16-foot upper deck with a slide and a nine-foot bimini for ample upper deck shade.

Underneath the deck, there is an incredible 360-degree rotating couch that can be set up to watch the highlights going on all around the boat. The table pad also converts the booth to a bed if a few passengers need a nap during your excursion.

In this boat’s Bombay bar, you will enjoy a beverage cooler, stemware holder, electric sink, paper towel holder, composite countertop, and two bar stools. Docking and navigation lights comply with marine regulations and RGB lights throughout provide great ambiance during evening outings.
