My family & I had decided a 24' tri-toon with 150 to 200 hp motor would do everything we want to be able to do and cruise about 35-40 mph I figured they would run around $40 to 50k. We have a family of 6, kids like too ski some, wife & I enjoy the room of a pontoon.
Then I saw in PDB (Pontoon & Deck Boat) where deck boats about
20' long with 115 to 150 hp run 35 to 48 mph and retail around $24 to 26k. Some look like a bow runner and then some have fencing like a pontoon.
I would appreciate some pros and cons on these types of boats, I'm a little confussed now. We will be using on area lakes in Arkansas. Thanks.
