Five-man Small pontoon fishing boat - Pond King Elite

At 16 ft. 6 in., the Pond King Elite is the largest pontoon in our compact pontoon fishing boat line and comes standard with just about everything you’ll need for big lake fishing with your buddies. The subframe of this four-man Small pontoon fishing boat is 2″ welded aluminum tubing covered by tongue-n-groove aluminum decking with slip-resistant powder coating. The seats are bolted through the deck and into the frame with stainless steel fasteners – so even on the big lakes, you’ll be nice and secure. Just like all the Pond King Pontoon Boats, the Elite pontoon boat is built to get you where the fish are, hold its value, and last a lifetime.

How the Pond King Elite stacks up to a deck boat

If you are comparing the Pond King Elite with a deck boat, there are a few things you'll want to keep in mind;

  • The Pond King Elite will have a smaller draft, allowing you to get into shallower waters than you could with a V-hull.
  • Unlike a V-hull of a deck boat, the pontoons on the Pond King Elite minimize the wake that could startle fish away.
  • Generally speaking, pontoon boats are more efficient than V-hull deck boats because they essentially sit on the water, rather than cutting through it, requiring less horsepower to achieve the same result.

Ultimately, you need to think about the type of water you'll be on and the number of people you want to take with you, but the Pond King Elite is a great 4-man fishing pontoon for the big ponds and lakes of Texas and Oklahoma.

    • Do Pond King Small Pontoons require much maintenance? 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.
    • Is a trailer included with my Pond King Small Pontoon Boat? Most of our customers have us put their boat on the water, and that's where it stays, so trailers don't come standard. If you’re planning on hauling, you’ll need a trailer and we have ShoreLand’r Trailers available for all models.
