DIY Mini Pontoon Boat Kits (2-Person)

$1,299.00

With your budget and our standards in mind, we’ve developed a series of three DIY Boat Kits for you to choose from based on how much you want to spend and how much work you want us to do for you. Whichever option you choose, you’ll end up with a handy little 2-man fishing pontoon boat, perfect for fishing ponds. 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

Awesome!

I am glad I decided to purchase the basic DIY mini pontoons. I am a poor carpenter, but I was able to complete the building of a pontoon boat that glides through the water with ease. I love this little boat and I'm proud to show it off.

Awesome

It was a breeze to put together. I did it by myself even though an extra hand would be helpful. Directions were very clear and easy to follow. I'm getting lots of great comments from friends. Can't wait to get it in the water. Thanks for a great product.

Hey Mike - Glad it was easy to put together, even though you did it yourself. It is definitely easier with a second pair of hands. We'd love to see photos of the boat on the water! Enjoy! Your friends at Pond King

Very pleased with the DIY Boat Kit

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. Will probably be getting more business from this area. Thanks, Brett Anderson

Thank you, Brett. The boat looks awesome. So glad it's saving you time not having to bail it out every time it rains. That's exactly what we had in mind when we designed it. Sincerely, Your friends at Pond King

    How to accept a DIY Boat Kit shipment

    We stand behind our products, and we do all we can to pack everything securely. Unfortunately, once an item leaves our facility, we have no control over the shipping process. If you accept a shipment that has sustained damage, neither you nor we can make a claim for the damage, so it is very important that you examine your shipment BEFORE accepting it. 


    Here's how to properly receive your Pond King products:


    • Inspect all boxes/pallets and make sure you have all the pieces to your order.
    • Check the bill of lading from the delivery company to make sure you have all your boxes/pallets.
    • Report any missing boxes/pallets to the driver and NOTE ON THE BILL OF LADING. Get it in writing!
    • Next, inspect all the boxes/pallets for anything that looks like damage. If there is a punctured or smashed box/pallet, open it, and make sure that there is no damage.
    • In the event of damage, you must report it to the driver and NOTE ON THE BILL OF LADING. If you do not note the damage on the bill of lading, you are confirming that you received the goods in perfect condition, and you release both Pond King and the shipping company of any liability on the shipment.


    Pond King is not responsible for any damage caused during shipping by a third party.

  • What’s the difference between the Mini Pontoon Boats and the Small Pontoon Boats?

    There are a couple of differences between Pond King’s mini and small pontoon boats.

    • First, their capacity distinguishes the mini pontoon boats from the small. The Pond King mini pontoon boats are intended for smaller bodies of water, specifically ponds or limited access fishing on lakes, whereas the small pontoon boats can handle larger bodies of water.

    • Second, the mini pontoons have all been designed to ship free to their destination … within the lower continental U.S.

    • Third, and this is related to being able to ship, the mini pontoon boats all require some level of assembly - ranging from the DIY boat where you have to build your own deck - or the Rebel Modular pontoon boat.

    What’s the difference between your Mini Pontoon Boat Models?

    The Rebel is a one-man, mini pontoon boat, but the DIY Boat Kit and the Patriot Pontoon Boat are both two-man boats. You can use this handy mini pontoon boat comparison chart to see the differences for yourself. 

    Once I've placed my order, how long will it take to get my Pond King Mini Pontoon Boat?

    All of Pond King's pontoon boats are made to order, right here at our facility in Gainesville. Once we receive your order, we'll get started building your boat but production time will depend on when you place your order. (If you are ordering between March and June, call for an estimated delivery time.) COVID-19 UPDATE: Some of our lead times have been impacted by COVID-19. Please call to get an estimated ship date before placing your order.

    What are the decking materials?

    The decking on the DIY boat is totally up to you - although we strongly recommend marine grade plywood. You can purchase the optional finish out package and apply premium carpet. The decking on the Patriot is made of premium-carpeted, marine grade plywood. The standard decking on the Rebel Modular Mini Pontoon boat is marine-grade plywood with carpet, but you can upgrade to the aluminum deck that is aluminum tread plate with a skid-resistant powder-coating.

    Do Pond King Mini Pontoon Boats require much maintenance?

    The Patriot’s deck is made of marine grade, carpeted decks, and you’ll have control over the type of wood used on the DIY boat, so, yes, these boats are pretty rugged. You may eventually need to replace the wood - but not for years to come. The Rebel comes standard with a marine-grade plywood deck with marine-grade carpet, so this boat will be very hardy - and you can upgrade to an aluminum deck to make it virtually maintenance free. All of these boats will require less maintenance than your average V-hull or John boat.

    Why do the DIY and Patriot have 4 pontoons but all the small pontoon boats only have two?

    The DIY boat kit and the Patriot have 4 pontoons because we wanted to be able to ship these boats free. So, instead of one long pontoon on each side of the boat platform, we made two shorter pontoons. Functionally, on the water, they provide exactly the same stability and buoyancy as a single pontoon would, it is just that the smaller pontoons make it possible to ship free.

    How are the Mini Pontoon Boats delivered?
    The DIY Mini Pontoon Boats all ship for free via Ground in 4 boxes.

    The Rebel Modular Mini Pontoon Boat ships FREE to any commercial location in the continental U.S. via Motor Freight (1 pallet measuring 40" x 52"x57" and weighing 230 lbs). The Rebel can also be picked up at our location.

    The Patriot Mini Pontoon Boat ships free via to any commercial address on a pallet via freight or can be picked up at our location. Residential shipping may be available, but please call for more information. The critical issue with residential delivery is the ability to offload the pallet from the truck.
    • Patriot Mini Pontoon Boat Pallet Dimensions: 95 in. x 48 in. x 30 in.
    • Patriot Mini Pontoon Boat Pallet Weight: 380 lbs.
