2020 Lowe SS 250 WS

The SS 250 WS is an enormous playground on the water for families and friends.

A 25-foot, 7-inch pontoon boat makes an enormous playground on the water for families and friends. The performance that comes from the added buoyancy of a third pontoon and the reduced drag from strakes that lift the tubes to the surface of the water optimize horsepower and increase the fun.

In turns, the power steering gives smooth control and Mercury’s dynamic throttle easily maintains torque by feeding in throttle to keep the boat turning smoothly instead of dumping speed and wallowing through the turn. In straightaways, each nudge of the throttle returns rewarding acceleration.

Enhancing comfort on board this speedster are dual acrylic and fiberglass consoles, complete with a beam-to-beam windshield that protects from wind while its low-profile design adds to its sleek appearance. Also benefitting from the power are watersports enthusiasts who might enjoy skiing, wakeboarding or riding a tube at the end of a rope secured to the optional pylon.

The triple pontoons are 25 inches in diameter and made of .080-gauge aluminum; a protective keel guards the leading edge from impact. Those triple tubes also enhance capacity for crew and buoyancy to ride clear of rough wakes.

Style points at the helm include optional reclining chairs for the captain and mate. Arm rests automatically adjust for comfort. Lounge seating surrounds the area forward of the windshield— but the windshield’s low-profile design keeps captain and crew in touch. The elevation of both consoles also enhances the view forward.

Aft seating is just as luxurious and divided at the center stern boarding gate. A standard acrylic cocktail table was upgraded on our test boat: a clear acrylic table with stainless-steel cup holders and wineglass holders for four.

Lowe’s durable construction, reliable power and luxury on the water make performance, fun and comfort a given on the SS 250 WS.
