Lowe Platinum 23 RFL

Luxury meets water sports aboard this pontoon.

December 16, 2011

The new Lowe Platinum 23 RFL combines pontoon luxury with the excitement of water sports. For luxury, there are two pairs of lounges — one pair in the bow and another in the stern, plus a swiveling, reclining captain’s chair with flip-up armrests. The two-tone vinyl upholstery and carpeting play off the platinum theme, but the carpet gives way to optional faux-teak decking aft.

The fiberglass console features a smoked acrylic windshield, as well as full instrumentation, a control panel for the upgraded Sony stereo system, and a tilt-and-lock helm with the optional hydraulic steering. Storage compartments forward of the windshield possess clear acrylic hatches.

Our boat was equipped with the XL performance package with a 25-inch center log for greater speed and V-hull-like cornering. Optional is a custom ski tow bar. The two aft lounges have backrests that let you recline and watch the action astern. The RFL in the name means rear-facing lounges.


A spacious swim platform stretches across the entire stern, and a fold-up boarding ladder and gate make it easy to climb back aboard after a tow session or a swim. You will also find boarding gates amidships on the port side and in the bow.
