Sweetwater’s popular Tuscany line of pontoons is made for families who want versatility, with the qualities that make pontoons ideal for relaxing. The 2486 FC, for instance, is set up for fishing, skiing or tooling around. There’s no need to add anything. The livewell and rod holders are standard. So are the fishing chairs (though you can swap them out for chaise longues if a clutter-free deck that accommodates up to 14 people is desired).
As the biggest boat in Tuscany’s line, the 2486 handles engines up to 150 hp. Twenty-five inch tubes help the boat ride higher in the water, which makes for easier handling when the boat’s rigged with generous horsepower. We’d seriously consider ordering the vinyl-covered deck because it’s so much easier to clean than carpet — we think it’s a must if the boat will be used for fishing more than half the time. And with a 25-foot platform, owners would be limiting the personal value of the boat by not using it to fish at least once in a while.
