~In the mid 1990s, our founders shared the vision of building a boat that was different, innovative and customer-driven
the best pontoon boat on the market. As this vision grew, they put together a team of people who, based on relationships and experience, shared this vision. The result was Bennington Marine. Founded in 1997, Bennington has grown at an unprecedented pace to become one of the largest manufacturers of pontoon boats in the country and a fast-growing player in the fiberglass sport boat market.
As you browse our website, we think youll agree that we/ve achieved our goal. There are many unique features that set Bennington pontoon and sport boats apart from the competition: plush upholstery, comfortable chaise lounges, roomy interiors, unique floorplans, options galore and award-winning fit and finish. Then we back our boats with the best warranty in the business!
One look at a Bennington and you'll understand the attention to detail behind its beautiful design. But often, what you don't see is as important as what you do. That's why we pay attention to the construction details of our pontoons... and why they're the most solid, quietest-riding boats on the water.
Want to know more? Just take a look at the details. Once you do, you'll understand how we can back our boats by the best warranty in the industry!
Bennington's heavy-duty, rigid deck frame was designed to accommodate today's heavier, higher horsepower engines.
Pontoon Bow Eye - Durable aluminum extruded bow eyes (not brittle castings) are beveled at the edges The smooth radius edges prevent chaffing and snagging of dock lines.
Unlike many of our competitors, Benningtons rails are welded before anodizing (not after). Welding before anodizing results in a stronger, smoother weld that will not discolor from oxidation. Bennington rails are also welded on four sides (not two) wherever possible. Bennington rails are 1 1/4" (not 1"); .080" thick (not .060"). The rails are anchored to the frame of the boat (not the wood deck) wherever possible. Our inside rail supports are solid (not hollow tubes) to ensure the sturdiest rails in the industry.
A special sealing tape on the perimeter of all Bennington rail panels ensures a quiet, rattle-free ride.
1/4" rail spacers between the deck and the panel rail allow water to easily drain off the deck. The increased ventilation as a result of these spacers also help reduce the growth of mold and mildew.
~Stainless Steel Bolts
Stainless steel elevator bolts with Ny-Lock nuts are used to secure the deck to the cross channels. They are stronger and have more holding power than the self-tapping screws used by many of our competitors.
Benningtons extruded deck brackets are thicker and stronger than the thin sheet aluminum brackets that are used by some of our competitors. Our brackets have FOUR (not two) points of contact across the top of the tube, which helps to evenly distribute the frame weight and stress. (A) WIDER By spacing our deck brackets about 10" wider than our competitors we are able to greatly reduce the amount of twist the deck is subjected to
especially at high speeds. The wider stern brackets also provide more support closer to the engine. (B) END CAP SUPPORT The stern deck brackets are welded over the end cap, which is the strongest part of the tube. Most of our competitors stern brackets are not welded over the tube end cap.
Bennington has set a new standard for pontoon boat seating comfort. Our unique high density, multi-compression foam provides the perfect combination of support and plush comfort. Our one-piece, roto-cast molded seat frames are stronger and more durable than the two-piece combination plastic/wood seats used by some of our competitors. We use only premium grade 31 oz. expanded vinyl in all models. Expanded vinyl has excellent memory retention, and resists punching, stretching and puddling. Our vinyl is soft and supple to the touch, mold and mildew resistant, and is backed by a FIVE-year warranty.
Benningtons unique captain seat with convenient cup holders is standard on all deluxe model boats. The captain seat also features a special marine suspension fabric suspended between the high density seat foam and the roto-cast shell. The combination of high density foam and suspension fabric will provide season after season of unchanged comfort, and will eliminate the bottoming out problem that exists with many of our competitors captain seats.
