Florida Pontoon Notes

Meet Pon Tiki

Introducing Pon Tiki

footerBackground

Pon Tiki is a Sun Tracker Bass Buggy 18 DLX. We wanted a smaller size boat that our truck could easily pull and a boat to accommodate a maximum of 5 to 6 people and a dog. This particular fishing pontoon was chosen because of the open front deck with two removable fishing chairs as opposed to a couch or lounge. We may do some fishing but rather wanted that area to lounge and even set up cots to boat camp. The price was in our range and we bought it!
