Re: Bennington S Series/ 188SF3

Thanks, but I ended up going with the Sun Tracker Bass Buggy 18. I talked to a Bennington dealer here in Illinois, but with the cost difference and I really wasn't impressed with the customer service.

Re: See how many pontoons are the same brand as yours K to W

Just picked up our new Pontoon last weekend, but now we have to wait for the weather to warm up just a little.

That was just boat, motor, and trailer.

Re: Bennington S Series/ 188SF3

I didn't go with a bunch of upgrades, so it was $23,500.00.

Re: Bennington S Series/ 188SF3

I visited the Bennington dealer today. I will agree that the Bennington is a better built pontoon, but I don't think the 18SF is $3,000 better than the Bass Buggy 18 DLX by Tracker.

Re: Bennington S Series/ 188SF3

Unfortunately, the 4 locations that have fishing models are all 500 plus miles away. Go figure.

Re: Bennington S Series/ 188SF3

I went to the Bennington Website and submitted a boat build for a quote, but I've never heard anything back. Not sure if this is a problem with their website or customer service. I have my pre-approval from the bank, so I'm getting excited about getting a boat. My son and I will probably be visiting...

Bennington S Series/ 188SF3

Does anyone have any information on the Bennington S Series/ 188SF3?

I'm looking at purchasing a fishing pontoon boat in the next 3 months, so I'm trying to find out as much as I can about some of the lower end fishing models.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Sun Tracker Boat Show?

I'm looking for a new boat; does anyone know if Bass Pro has boat shows? If so, is it worth waiting for one to get a good deal?

Re: 2016 Sun Tracker Bass Buggy 18 - Anyone have one?

We live in Southern Illinois, and it would be used mostly on Rend or Carlyle lakes.

2016 Sun Tracker Bass Buggy 18 - Anyone have one?

I've been looking at the Sun Tracker Bass Buggy 18 and I have a few questions for anyone that has one.

1. How many people does it fit comfortable?
2. Opinion between 60 and 75 hp engine?
3. How do you like the new cover without snaps; does it stay secure?
4. How do you like fishing from it?

Re: Choosing a boat - Suggestions appreciated

I really don't want to go larger than 18 if at all possible. I was looking at the Sun Tracker Bass Buggy 16 & 18; both advertise a wheelchair access side door as standard, and other boats have them as optional upgrades. Looking at new or last years model. I like the idea of the rails to fasten wheel...

Choosing a boat - Suggestions appreciated

I’m looking for a boat that will be used mainly for my brother-in-law and myself to fish. My brother-in-law is handicapped, so I figure a pontoon boat would be the safest. I’ve been looking at either a 16’ or 18’ since it will mostly just be the 2 of us, and I don’t expect to ever have more than 7 p...
