PlayCraft pontoons are built just 50 miles from the site of powerboating's most storied shootout, the Lake Rescue Shootout at Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. So, it's really easy to see why the adrenalin-loving founders of PlayCraft broke the first ground in performance pontoons. Now, years after PlayCraft's Dorris family made national news cranking out 100 mph with — oh, my gosh — a pontoon, nearly everyone rolling aluminum tubes has gotten into the act. But few do it as well as PlayCraft with its Powertoon Xtreme 2800. The triple-tube bottom slices over waves and chop, giving a soft, stable ride completely unexpected by non-enthusiasts. We were pleasantly surprised by the thrills it wraps in comfort.
