Pontoons are a great all around boat for lakes and the calm waters of Tampa Bay. With a draft less than 12", you are able to travel where other boats will hit bottom. Pull right up to the beach on one of the beautiful islands located right off the coast of Tarpon Springs, Clearwater or St. Pete. The Yamaha 115 is reliable and can get up to 30 MPH on the water. Pontoons are a great boat for the novice skipper. We installed a ski bar over the motor for maneuverability and action when pulling tubers and skiers.
