The Pontoon Boat

You’ve seen them before and have probably been on one too. Pontoon boats are pleasure boats and range from very simple to extremely luxurious. Relying on pontoons to float (hence the name), they are basically big flotation devices. Pontoons can either be made from concrete or metal or from sealed cylinders like barrels or pipes. The smallest pontoon boats are built for 1 or 2 people and are inflatable, with the pontoons made of strong PVC material. On the other end of the spectrum, they can be extremely large with multiple decks. They are used not only for entertainment purposes, but for commercial purposes like ferrying people across lakes and rivers as well.
