With newfound performance and handling, pontoon boats are fast saying goodbye to their senior-citizen image. Models like Harris FloteBote's Solstice 240, however, continue to celebrate a pontoon's classic strengths in the process. What's the most obvious example? A 'toon's highly customizable floor plan. The Solstice offers no less than six configurations, each of which tailors the boat to the buyer's needs. My test boat was all about comfort. Aft, it featured dual lounges with reclining backrests, raised inclines to offer support below the knees, and elongated footrests that almost beg passengers to stretch out and soak up the sun. Adjacent to the helm, a plush chair looks lifted from the living room. Add parallel lounges forward — and cushy, soft-touch vinyl throughout — and you've got space for up to 13 passengers, and an inviting platform whether you're underway or simply entertaining at the dock.
