Over the last couple of years, I’ve put together a vast range of guides to show the best ways in which you can customize or pimp your pontoon boat, all of which you can access under the recommended gear section.

Some of them are very functional and “must have” practical items, and you can see a selection of those listed below. But it easy to forget why you bought your pontoon in the first place, which was probably to have fun. After all, that’s what pontoon boats are designed for.

I hope you enjoy using these essential and fun accessories as much as my family and I do!

2. Water Slide

If an inflatable tube simply isn’t enough fun for you, then you could consider an inflatable slide that attaches to the side of your boat.
