Pontoon boats are the capacity kings when it comes to hauling a crowd on the water, and the Aqua Patio series from Godfrey Marine is a great example of the increased amenities and luxury that customers have been requesting from this breed of boat.
For $33,495 with a Yamaha 115 hp four-stroke outboard, the Aqua Patio 240 SL (for sun lounge) can carry 14 people. The aft-facing chaise-style lounges are the best seats aboard, and the forward couches are deeper inboard to outboard than on competitive boats. This means that an adult can stretch out on them without fear of flopping onto the cockpit sole.
People frequently use a pontoon boat as a swim platform, and the AP 240’s stern ladder extends deeply into the water, but with a plus. There are small pegs on the fronts of the legs that keep the ladder from swinging too far under. At the end of the day, when you want to change out of your suit, a changing curtain pops up out of the stern lounge. At the helm, the master power switch is another great idea. Hit the single button and it kills power to all electronic accessories, except the bilge pump, so you won’t accidentally kill the batteries.
You can pull tubers with an AP 240 with the 115 hp Yamaha. The boat will top out in the low- to mid-20 mph range, and it takes lake chop and boat wakes surprisingly well. Godfrey builds the boat with full bulkheads in the pontoons. Additionally, the fronts of the twin pontoon logs overlap up to three layers, providing plenty of protection against collisions with docks.
