Very pleased with this boat. All parts were in the shipment and all fit as designed by the directions. I live on a 6-acre pond with 14 other neighbors. This is a perfect boat for a pond because you can't count how many times I dumped the water out of my other boats every time it rains. Thanks for the fast shipping, and a very well-designed boat.
Pontoon boats on a budget
We’ve developed a DIY Boat Kit so you can build your very own Pond King Pontoon Boat with a modest budget. The different kits produce the same sized boat in the end. The difference is how much of the material we provide, and how much you will have to provide.
Since you can't just run down to the local hardware store and purchase pontoons, we figured we'd start there. You can choose to purchase the pontoons only, or you can opt for us to send you the motor mount, pre-cut marine-grade carpet and the kick-rail with trim to finish off your deck with ease. With either kit, you'll need to purchase materials to build the frame and deck -- which you can pick up at the local store! In the end, you'll have a handy little 2-person fishing pontoon boat that is perfect for fishing private ponds.
Innovative design made with you in mind
Pond King has developed mini pontoon kits that are built with the same craftsmanship as Pond King’s other pontoon boats, but they’ve been designed so you can assemble them at home to cut the shipping costs and make our boats more accessible.
Because of their size, these boats are only rated for an electric trolling motor - a 45-pound thrust with a 36-inch shaft would be just fine.
If you are looking for a boat that can handle a larger body of water where there may be waves or accommodate more than 2 people or is built completely of aluminum, check out our line of small pontoon boats.

The True DIY kit is just the 4 pontoons and brackets. You will provide everything else. We’ll send you a list of all the materials you’ll need to build your deck, plus:
- 4 welded aluminum pontoons (each 5’ long)
- Hardware for bolting the pontoons to the deck frame
- Optional Motor Mount (choose True DIY w/ Motor Mount)
If you’re confident in your woodworking skills, but not so sure about your carpeting and finish-work technique, you can opt to have us send you pre-cut marine grade carpet and a 6-piece kick-rail and trim package by choosing the Build Your Own Boat Kit Plus option. That will include:
- 4 welded aluminum pontoons
- Hardware for bolting pontoons to the deck frame
- A list of materials you'll need to build your deck and assembly instructions (Download them below so you can have your deck ready when the pontoons arrive)
- Pre-cut, marine-grade carpet to cover the deck
- Marine-grade glue and trowel for spreading
- Motor Mount
- 6-piece 6” kick-rail with edge trim package
The DIY Mini Pontoon Boat Kits ship in boxes via Fed Ex Ground. It's a Boat in a Box -- well, BoxES! Each pontoon ships in its own box and weighs 34 lbs.
The shipping rate will be calculated at checkout.
You’ll receive complete assembly instructions for building the deck of your boat, including a materials list. We estimate it’ll take about 4 hours to complete the deck once you’ve obtained all your materials.
