Are you looking for a boat that doesn’t need bailing out every time it rains and offers more stability and comfort than a Jon-boat? This is it. The Champ pontoon boat has 10′ pontoons and features a fixed 4’7″ x 8′ all aluminum deck, making it the ideal two-man fishing boat to leave tied-up down at your backyard pond. Plus, you can easily turn it into a duck hunting platform just by adding the optional blind attachment.

Less time tarping means more time fishing ... or hunting!

The Champ is built with welded aluminum subframes, heavy gauge pontoons, powder-coated aluminum deck materials and stainless-steel hardware. It's easy to haul, easy to maneuver, stable and comfortable. The pontoons allow you to get into shallower water than you could with a Jon-boat, and you won't have to bail this baby out after a rainstorm. When you add the optional duck blind attachment, you've also got yourself a handy little hunting pontoon boat.

Option to add duck blind. Never let shooting panels ruin your shot again

The optional duck blind features two drop-away panels to keep you hidden from view - one on the top and one in front - that operate independently. When you are ready to take your shot, the either panel will drop away with just a nudge.

Stability and comfort

By design, pontoon boats are inherently more stable than Jon-boats, or v-hulls of similar size so you’ll find it easier to get on and off, and move around as you fish. But the other thing that is great about these boats is you sit on a pedestal, swivel seat, that is easier on the back and knees. With a Champ boat, you can fish all day with confidence and in comfort.

The Aqua Cycle II and Champ can be picked up at our headquarters in Lindsay, Texas or delivered to you for a fee, which will be calculated at checkout.

The DIY Mini Pontoon Boat Kits ship in boxes via Fed Ex Ground. The Patriot ships via Motor Freight, including residential delivery with an appointment and a lift-gate, to almost any continental U.S. address. The shipping rate will be calculated at checkout. Please see our FAQs for information about receiving your mini pontoon boat shipment.

The pontoons associated with the "Do-it-yourself" boat kits carry a limited lifetime warranty. We have made recommendations regarding the deck size, materials and construction. Any modification to these recommendations will nullify the warranty.

The Champ and the Patriot carry a limited lifetime warranty on any manufacturer defects on frames, welds and pontoons. Any accessories not manufactured by Pond King carry their own manufacturers’ warranty and are handled directly with those respective manufacturers.

The Aqua Cycle II is manufactured by American Pleasure Products and comes with a 2-year Limited Warranty.
Pond King must receive payment in full for the mini pontoon boats before shipping or delivery. Generally, you can make a full payment when you place your order online. If, however, you would like to make a $1,000 deposit to get your boat into our production lineup and pay the balance with a check, please call us to make those arrangements.

Have more questions?

We’re happy to answer any questions you may have. Let us help you determine if the Pond King Champ is right for you.



All of Pond King’s mini pontoon boats are intended for 2 people fishing relatively small bodies of water. So, the other factors you should consider are your budget and ability to do some assembly. If you are very budget focused, and pretty handy, the DIY Boat Kit would be a good option. However, if price is important but you aren’t very good at building things, the Patriot could be right for you. If you want a fully-assembled boat you can just put out on your backyard pond, choose the Champ if you want to use a trolling motor to get around and the Aqua Cycle II if you prefer to get around under your own pedal-power.
All of Pond King's pontoon boats are made to order, right here at our facility in Lindsay, Texas. 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.) Some of our lead times have been impacted by supply chain issues. Please call to get an estimated ship date before placing your order. The boat kits are currently taking 6-8 weeks, whereas the fully-assembled boats are 8-10 weeks.

It is very important that you examine your shipment BEFORE accepting it. Here’s how to properly receive a shipment: 

  1. Inspect all boxes/pallets and make sure you have all the pieces to your order.
  2. Check the bill of lading from the delivery company to make sure you have all your boxes/pallets.
  3. Report any missing boxes/pallets to the driver and NOTE ON THE BILL OF LADING. Get it in writing!
  4. 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.
  5. 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. While we will do what we can to help you out, ultimately Pond King is not responsible for any damage caused during shipping by a third party.
We will either have one of our employees drive the boat to you or we will contract with a “hot-shot” driver to deliver it. If you ordered your boat with a trailer, they’ll drive it right to the address you’ve provided and go over the boat with you. If you ordered either of these boats without a trailer, as long as you have adequate access, our driver will launch the boat into your private pond or lake for you and you are ready to go.
The DIY boat kit and the Patriot have 4 pontoons because we wanted to be able to ship these boats via common carrier. 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 the boats - which can be less expensive than delivery.
The main difference between Pond King’s mini and small pontoon boats isn't just their capacity (the mini boats are 1 or 2 person) but also the size body of water for which they are appropriate. 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.
The Patriot, Champ and Aqua Cycle II boats all come with an MSO (Manufacturer's Statement of Origin) and a HIN (Hull Identification Number). However, because the DIY Kit is only boat parts, we cannot issue a HIN.
In Texas, if you are only using your boat on your private property, you don’t need to register it. However, if you’ll be transporting your one-person boat to public waters, registration is required. If you’re not a Texas resident, we recommend checking with your state to find out the laws and requirements.

Can’t say enough good things

The process of building my Champ was enjoyable and easy. From the initial contact I made with Jill and the team at Pond King, I knew it was the solution for me. I never felt pressured in any way. The team assisted with all of my questions for weeks as I made up my mind which boat and options I wanted. I have talked about Pond King to everyone who will listen, and I expect several friends to be purchasing their own mini pontoons in the near future. This little boat is the perfect solution for spending time on small bodies of water with my young son. We feel safe in a sturdy vessel with just enough room to move around as needed.

Pond King Champ

Just picked up my new Pond King champ this weekend. I am 6-3 and 220 and the champ was incredibly stable, easy to handle and most of all a joy to fish out of. Had the under deck battery compartment so the deck is clean without obstruction. I would be remiss in not noting the sales and delivery experience. Jill is great! Professional, spot on communication and model for service that any company would envy. The staff were helpful in loading and instructions on use. Again, great boat, great sales experience and superb delivery. Would recommend without hesitation. Oh by the way, I am the grumpy guy who never writes review except compelled to write with this experience. JLM
