We tested a three-tube version of the 22-foot Encore, which uses the same tubes found on pricier pontoons. The boat rode high off the water at 52 mph, reaching 30 mph in less than 6 seconds, and maneuvering was a breeze because of the Sport Handling Package. (The SHP is a larger center tube, mounted lower than the outer tubes, and with lifting strakes all around). This, with an Evinrude 250 High Output, is the ticket for boaters who want the deft handling and quickness of a sport boat with the open space of a pontoon. About 40 percent of all new Manitous are rigged this way, and the V-Toon performance helps account for the high customer-satisfaction scores.
