This year, the popular Family Value Series includes the all-new 228 Fish & Cruise models. Whether your choice is the marine grade vinyl floor (shown) or the fully carpeted version, each of these models provide a versatile family-friendly layout. The unique arrangement of four fishing chairs in the bow allows several anglers to fish over the sides of the boat in comfort. For entertaining, just add the pedestal table and turn the seats inward and you have room for friends to share a casual evening on the water. Convenient under-seat storage, rod-holders, livewell, sundeck and durable Sun Catcher construction make the 228 Fish & Cruise more than just a value... it's a "best buy!"

Construction & Components
·Enlarged 23" x 25" U-shaped pontoon logs w/ Maxi-Float foam and smooth, straight sides have higher volume than 23" round logs for maximum flotation and superior ride. See Sun Catcher Construction link for more information.
·All aluminum motor pod is bolted to pontoon cross-members with 12 point attachment and large diameter bolts for added strength and rigidity.
·Fuel Separator helps to eliminate excess water from gas and gives peace of mind and consistent performance.
·Marine grade pressure treated plywood deck has limited lifetime warranty for years of care-free family boating.
·U-shaped logs provide a secure platform for extruded c-channel 16" on-center through-bolted construction. Round logs rely on "M" brackets with less contact with the log to secure the deck.
·Through bolted floors to deck extrusions, .100 gauge nose cones, and heavy duty deck extrusions on 16" centers are just a few of the extra touches that make the Sun Catcher Pontoon line the Best Value on the Water.
G3 ADVANTAGE WARRANTY adds value with an extended warranty on all external seams for the "duration of ownership" for the original retail purchaser. Full five year bow to stern warranty transferable once within 5 years of purchase, and a limited lifetime warranty on the marine grade plywood deck material direct from the manufacturer gives you the best total warranty package in the industry.
