If you’re truly looking for a pontoon boat that can turn heads on the water yet entertain a crew at the same time, the Vogue 25 RL with the optional Sport Ice Edition is just the ticket. It’s a stylish craft with excellent performance attributes and an updated layout.
With the Sport Ice Edition, you get the plush white and charcoal vinyl interior, and the red accents are stunning. There are four exterior color combinations from which to choose, including red.
In the bow, Princecraft shows off a set of roomy and comfy U-shaped furniture. Each side of the U-lounge features a recess that features two cup holders and USB ports. A handy trash receptacle hides under the forward-facing backrest on the starboard console. You know what’s cool? The dinette table has fold-down leaves, so when the full table is not needed, you don’t have to stow it to create more open space. The four cup holders on top are still accessible.
Moving aft, Princecraft also updated the elevated helm console for 2021, with an ergonomic design that features more-sophisticated push-button rocker switches, and a wireless cellphone charger that secures your phone in place.
The RL in the name stands for “rear lounge,” and Princecraft went above and beyond to make it adjustable and versatile. It can be rearranged in five different positions, from rear- or forward-facing seats to forward- or rear-facing reclining lounges to a full-on sun pad.
If you’re into watersports, the optional power tower sport arch is a great addition; it raises and lowers with a turn of a key. For 2021, Princecraft extended the aft swim platform by 6 inches, providing space for watersports as it wraps around the outboard motorwell. The stainless-steel tow bar is great for towing skiers and doubles as a handhold when traversing the platform. A four-step telescoping swim ladder is set to starboard.
When paired up with a 300 hp Mercury, this boat can really move on the water, and its triple-tube performance package provides smooth handling and the ability to take on a sporty lake chop. Add it all up, and you get a boat that does it all.
