Manitou 22 Aurora

Manitou's 22 Aurora comes loaded with features at an attractive price.

Pontoons in the $15,000 price range are becoming more rare, which is one reason the 22 Aurora is such an appealing boat. More than the price is the fact that it comes from the same people at Manitou who just earned a sixth straight Customer Satisfaction Index award from the NMMA. For the modest price, the 22 Aurora comes with two chaise lounges, sun deck, cooler, table, rear-entry ladder, Bimini top and 50 hp Mercury four-stroke engine. What if you can only afford $11,000? The 18 Aurora, with a 40 hp Evinrude E-Tec motor, fits under that number. Manitou isn’t tied to a specific engine manufacturer, so buyers could take the old warhorse off an existing boat and slap it on the transom of a brand new Aurora.
