Aptly named for an exotic island in the Aegean Sea, the Montara Naxos proves feature-filled and delivers quality and luxury.
Aboard the Naxos, there’s a standard 5-inch raised helm for increased visibility. A 12-inch touchscreen multifunction display to control and monitor accessory systems and engine data is standard, as is digital switching. Manage your music with the four-speaker Polk Audio sound system with four-zone control, with the option to add up to 12 speakers and two subwoofers. Depth and water temperature are in view, and there’s an emergency parallel battery switch to ensure you can always start the engine. Other options include heated and cooled cup holders and wireless phone chargers.
Montara builds the Naxos’ interior functionally and luxuriously. For instance, seat bases are roto-cast so they won’t rot and get soft. Plus, they are fitted with drains so stowed gear stays dry. The Naxos boasts top-notch upholstery that looks nice, feels great, and will hold up to your boating lifestyle. Seating capacity is 15. And the helm console is a worthy seat for the captain. The raised helm is made of fiberglass and ergonomically arranged to hold instrumentation.
Montara’s construction schedule exceeds other pontoon builders. For starters, three tubes and a sealed, drop-in ski locker are standard. The full-length solid keel that helps it deliver an awesome ride also provides great strength. Fence panels are rugged .100-gauge, rather than the more common .60-gauge. Its 26-inch-diameter, .100-gauge tubes feature four sealed air chambers and are fitted with .125-gauge nose cones. Sturdy quarter-inch M brackets run full length, and quarter-inch I-beam and C-channel cross members are every 16 inches.
Two optional Power Towers (our eye is on the deluxe-cast model) raise and lower at the push of a button. Forward and aft Bimini-top options are available, as are locking surfboard racks and a Lillipad Revo ladder and diving board. Cannonball!
