These days, prospective pontoon boat buyers aren’t just looking for a boat with a lot of creature comforts on deck; they’re looking for one with some performance oomph. Princecraft, long known for its aluminum-hull fishing boats, delivers on 21st-century ’toon expectations with the new Vogue 27 SE, a boat that mates three marine-grade aluminum logs with a well-thought-out floor plan. With the triple-tube package you get a boat that can support a 300 hp Mercury Verado and — with the 52-gallon fuel tank built into the center tube — the juice to support it. We skirted 45 mph on test day, climbing onto plane in a scant three seconds and accelerating to 30 mph in under eight seconds. Hard-over turns still feel a little flat compared with the inboard lean of a fiberglass V-hull, but with the triple tubes the feeling is far less pronounced.
