The truly amazing proliferation of models and floor plans available across the six segment line of Bennington pontoons is staggering. The R25 Swingback model is situated about the middle of their luxury R series line with models ranging from 20 to 28 feet. Layout wise, the R25 begins with a centre access gate at the bow, eclipsed by two forward facing sunloungers with room for at least six to comfortably converse. The twin captain’s chairs with high backs create a second conversation area and swivel aftwards to join the swingback sofa when its’ seatback is “swung” aft. When you swing the seatback forward, it creates a double wide (and them some) sunlounge that faces aft over the generous 18” swim platform. Under the sunlounger base, you’ll find the largest pop-up privacy enclosure I’ve ever seen on any pontoon boat. It’s massive – large enough for a parent to be in while they help their young child get changed. The access gate to the swim platform is to starboard and the seagrass flooring throughout ties it all together. The ESP Performance Package features a patented 32” elliptical centre tube, lifting strakes, and an under deck wave shield. Bennington pontoons are backed by an industry leading 10 year bow-to-stern warranty and a lifetime structural warranty.
