A pontoon is a boat that is flat-bottomed and generally used in raft-style boating. They are smaller and lighter in weight and are generally lower-cost and less-expensive to insure than a normal boat, which make them ideal for beginners. A pontoon's shallow draft (only about 8 inches) also reduces harm from underwater collisions and being run aground.
Small pontoon boats have many positives. They are perfect for people who don't have much experience with boating and want to take some time learning before they invest in something more substantial. They handle easily compared to larger boats and their small size makes them straightforward to haul around, even with a smaller vehicle like a minivan or small truck. Lastly, they have less impact on the environment, and are therefore ideal for lakes and ponds that have restrictions on what types of boats may enter. So enjoy a calming and productive hobby, pontooning!
