Wood-free construction draws more boat buyers every year, but would you expect to find it in a bargain boat? Yes, if you’re shopping Leisure’s pontoons, built by the innovators at Premier. Eliminating wood also lessens the likelihood of a common issue with pontoons stored outside — furniture rot. And long life simply means it’s a better investment. The Commander 2225 should also get more use because it’s designed as a fish-and-ski pontoon. It has two fishing chairs in the bow and a sofa for passengers who would rather kick back. Leisure doesn’t cut costs on the tubes either, as they’re 25 inches, which makes for smoother cruises. The three-tube version of the 2225 can handle up to 175 hp.
