There are not too many pontoon boats with bathrooms, and the ones that do tend to be the larger party barges with a dedicated head.

For most of us, we will have to buy a porta potty toilet and then use a pontoon bathroom enclosure which is a bit like a curtain hung underneath a Bimini.

In this guide I will start off with my recommendation for a portable toilet so you can create your own on-board bathroom set-up. You might also need a pontoon bathroom enclosure that you can buy and retrospectively fit. There are two options, hanging and pop-up versions,

Once you have read through those and decided if there’s a combination to suit your boat, I will then list some of the best pontoon boats with bathrooms if you’re trying to decide what boat you want to buy from new which come with a toilet already installed.

This is what you are going to need:

1: Pontoon Toilets for the Perfect Bathroom

Let’s start off with the most practical element first, which is the toilet for the bathroom area.

There are literally hundreds to choose from, most of which have been specifically designed for the camping and RV industry, but they work just as well on pontoons – as long as you select the right type.

I’ve got 4 recommendations here, with the first in the list being the portable toilet I use in my pontoon bathroom set-up.

#1: Camco Portable Travel Toilet

  • Price: Low (view prices on Amazon)
  • Capacity: 3 gallon holding tank is detachable; 2.5 gallon flush tank
  • Weight: 8 pounds
  • Seat Width: 13 inches
  • Dimensions: 5″ high x 14″ wide x 16″ deep
  • Warranty: 1 year

How Well Does It Flush?

This is virtually the same size as the toilet you would get in your own home, meaning it should “almost” feel like home when you use it.

A superb portable toilet, it uses bellow-type flush. All that means is that you have a pull-out  lever that opens a small trap door to drop the waste down into the holding tank.

Is it Easy to Clean?

Yes, and that’s all done with some latches on the side which hold the waste tank on. You can remove the waste tank with a couple of clicks and then pour the waste out using a cap on the rear.

It’s simple, and you don’t have to carry the whole toilet to do so, you just carry the tank away. 

Additional Information

It’s a really sturdy pontoon bathroom choice, with almost zero wobbles when you sit down on it. You feel secure when sat down, and it can take even the larger posteriors like my own! 

It also has some sealed valve locks which mean all the smells will stay trapped inside, and you won’t get any leakage.

#2: Palm Springs Portable Toilet

  • Price: Low (view prices on Amazon)
  • Capacity: 3 gallon holding tank is detachable; 5 gallon flush tank
  • Weight: 75 pounds
  • Seat Width: 13 inches
  • Dimensions: 5″ high x 13.5″ wide x 12″ deep
  • Warranty: 1 year

How Well Does It Flush?

The Palm Springs flushes in exactly the same way as your home toilet does, so it’s probably a really good option for young kids, as they won’t need to figure out any new flushing methods. It’s as easy as pulling the lever.

Your passengers should definitely feel at home on this, just like they’re in their own bathroom… almost.

The name Palm Springs conjures up images of luxury, and whilst you can never be 100% luxurious on a pontoon boat toilet, this goes some way to offering the most comfort of all the other listed here.

Is it Easy to Clean?

Just like the Camco, the bottom half is the waste tank which you can remove and then transfer to a dump station at your local marina.

Additional Information

It’s one of the lightest and most portable bathrooms on this list.

Constructed from high-density polyethylene, it also has a sealed drain valve to keep smells and leaks in and can be packed down really compactly for easy carrying to and from your pontoon boat. 

#3: SereneLife Portable Toilet

  • Price: Mid-Range (view prices on Amazon)
  • Capacity: 3 gallon holding tank is detachable; 3.2 gallon flush tank
  • Weight: 14 pounds
  • Seat Width: 14 inches
  • Dimensions: 9″ high x 14.6″ wide x 16.5″ deep
  • Warranty: 3 years

How Well Does It Flush?

It has a 3-way pistol flush. Sounds fancy, but what it means is that you benefit from a splash-free rotating pour spout, and a piston pump flush that will get rid of even the largest deposits.

This is a premium product, that has the most comfortable seat of all. 

Is it Easy to Clean?

This is a higher-end bathroom for sure and comes with a water tank level indicator, so you know when it’s time to empty it. 

Unlike the other toilets, this uses odor-resistant materials to help to keep the smells from becoming a problem.

Additional Information

This portable pontoon bathroom comes with its own carry case. You can transfer the toilet to and from your boat with ease and leave the cover on when not in use.

It also has the longest warranty with a 3-year guarantee period.
