What I love about my pontoon boat is the fact that I can accessorize it with some custom additions to really make it stand out from the crowd. With the large deck space, railings, and interior elements it’s possible to hook or mount a wide range of accessories on-board that not only will look great but can also enhance your fun whilst on the water.
I am always on the lookout to see what I can buy next to customize my toon, and here’s just a short selection of some of the best pontoon boat accessories that I have either already fitted or am planning to do so.
This top 15 list of cool pontoon boat accessories are definitely worth a look and are sure to be conversation starters (or stoppers) down by the waterside or whilst out on your next trip.
1. LED Lighting Kit
Do you fancy customizing your pontoon boat to look a bit like KITT from Knight Rider? I did, and fitted some cool looking LED lighting underneath the deck. You can see what LED lights look like in the photo below – awesome isn’t it?
It’s certainly not something you will want to have switched on all the time, and in fact, you might want to check your local state laws to make sure there’s no legislation barring you from doing so – but if it’s all good to go then they can make for a really fun accessory.
Once switched on using the remote control, the water under your pontoon lights up like a Christmas tree and adds a great atmospheric look and feel. I remember last year on the 4th of July when I anchored up next to 3 other pontoons, all of whom has under deck LED lighting on… it made for an amazing spectacle.
Pontoon boat LED lights also don’t use masses of power, and are very economical, in fact, more so than standard lighting. That gives you even more reasons to buy!
I use and recommend the RecPro LED lighting kit on Amazon. Click here to see latest prices.
3. Eagle Claw Rod Holder with C-Mount
One for the fishermen and women now with this fun looking and functional fishing rod holder. It uses a C-clamp top and can support all types of rods, with a rotation angle of 360 degrees. The corrosion resistant material means it should last you for years and years, whilst withstanding all the punishment that can occur on a typical day’s fishing.
With different locking positions, it’s a must-have accessory for anybody who uses their pontoon boat for fishing and can be mounted on any rail up to 2 inches thick.
It’s affordable too, as I picked mine up for less than $50 last year. Want to know more? Go take a look at the Eagle Claw on Amazon.
4. Wise Stainless Steel Dual Pontoon Cup Holders
With all that fishing and fun you’re having on the pontoon, sometimes you just need to just sit back, grab a drink, and relax. What better way to do that by having attachable cup holders mounted to your rails within easy reach?
