I ordered a custom Pond King Elite and the boat turned out great. With COVID, the boat took a little longer, but they kept me informed and the boat turned out as promised. Great people to deal with.

A great alternative to a traditional bass boat

The Elite fishing boat is incredibly stable, easy hauling and virtually-maintenance free, plus, it has a number of unique features you won't find with a more traditional fishing boat. Since it drafts less than a V-hull, you’ll be able to get into shallower waters, and the pontoons make less wake, so you’re less likely to startle the fish. Best of all, with skid-resistant powder-coated aluminum decking, you don’t have to worry about always bringing your boat in, covering it, or drying it out after a rainstorm.

Economical and maneuverable

Generally speaking, pontoon boats are more efficient because they sit on the water, rather than cutting through it, which requires less horsepower (AKA fuel) to achieve the same result. It’s this sitting on the water that also makes this boat so maneuverable, especially in shallow water. With pontoons that are 20-inches in diameter, you’ll be able to move through water that’s only a foot deep - just keep an eye on the trim of your motor!

Highly-durable, extremely low-maintenance

Like all of our boats, the deck of the Elite is made with an all-aluminum, all-welded frame surrounding skid-resistant powder coated aluminum decking so water just beads up and runs off. The frame is welded to the pontoons, so you won’t have to worry about rivets coming loose over time and our pontoons are welded 0.080 marine-grade 5052 aluminum, so they are virtually maintenance-free. And not only are these materials extremely low-maintenance, they are long lasting, so you’ll have your boat for a lifetime.

Risk-free purchase

We custom build all our boats to order, and to get your boat into our production schedule you’ll need to make a deposit, with the balance due when you take possession of the boat. But we deliver all our small pontoon boats with our “Turn-around Guarantee.” If you’re not satisfied with your pontoon boat at delivery, we’ll “turn around,” bring the boat back to Gainesville, and refund the entire amount you've paid - minus the delivery fee.

All of our small pontoon boats are delivered to the address you provide for a fee, or you can pick them up at our headquarters for free. If you order your boat with a trailer, we’ll drive the boat to your location, and go over its operation with you.

We've built our reputation the good ol’ fashioned Texas way; with integrity, hard work and good nature. We manufacture all our boats with the intention that they will last a lifetime, and beyond. If you have a problem with your boat that is related to its construction, we’re going to take care of it. But, to make it official, here’s the warranty:

All of Pond King's small pontoon boats 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.
Pond King must receive payment in full for the small pontoon boats before shipping or delivery. You can pay in full when you place your order online, or, if you prefer, you can 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.

FAQ

To help you decide which boat is best for you, please check out our Boat Recommendation tool. Or, if you’d prefer, give us a call. Our boat experts will help you choose the right boat and outfit it just the way you want.
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.) Some of our lead times have been impacted by supply chain issues. Please call to get the most accurate estimated ship date for your boat.
All the Pond King pontoon boats are designed to be low maintenance with welded aluminum subframes, heavy gauge pontoons, and stainless steel hardware. Unlike a V-hull or Jon-boat, Pond King pontoon boats don’t require constant tarping or need to be bailed out after a storm. Once delivered, your Pond King pontoon boat can pretty much stay in the water.
The decking on all of our small pontoon boats is made of custom extruded, tongue-in-groove aluminum planks with a skid-resistant powder-coating. The decks of our pontoon boats stay cool and aren’t slippery when wet, plus they'll last a lifetime.
At Pond King, we manufacture our boats, start to finish, right here at our facility in Gainesville, Texas, and that includes the pontoons. We roll our pontoons to our own specifications from 0.080” marine-grade 5052 aluminum. By adjusting the diameter to length ratio, we can create the appropriate buoyancy for each of our boats - so they only need two pontoons. If you check out our mini pontoon boats, you'll see that some of our boats actually have 4 pontoons - but they are configured to act the same way our 2 pontoon system works.
You bet. The cone shape on the front of the pontoon improves the boats steer-ability. We’ve specifically designed the pitch of our cones to keep the nose up – when you are speeding up or slowing down – and to facilitate maneuverability in the water, so the front end slices through the water.
Pond King's small pontoon boats are known for their stability, especially as it relates to their size. Welding our frames together, versus bolting, provides a very high level of torsional stability at the joints which contributes to the overall stability of the craft.
Unlike bolts, welds don’t work loose over time. That’s why at Pond King we weld the deck frames to brackets, which are then welded to the pontoons, contributing to the boat’s stability and longevity.
Because all of our boats are built to order, we require a $1,000 deposit before we start construction. The balance is due either prior to shipping or at the time of delivery. If you are picking your boat up, or we are delivering it, we'll require the balance when you take possession of the boat. We’ll accept credit cards, checks, or even good ol’ cash. 
Because most of our customers have us put their boat on the water, and that's where it stays, we don’t include trailers in the base price - although we do offer trailers for all small pontoon boat models.
A short shaft outboard will work on the Sport model, but if you're getting the Pro model or larger, you'll need a long shaft outboard.
If you’re not satisfied with your pontoon boat at delivery, we’ll “turn around,” bring the boat back to Gainesville, and refund the entire amount you've paid - minus the delivery fee.
