Overview: A mid-range pontoon boat that offers solid performance and plenty of comfort.

Princecraft Quorum 25 SE

Lenny Rudow tested the Princecraft Quorum 25 SE pontoon, which is all new for 2014.

Concept: Create a new pontoon boat which has a more modern look and a wide number of options, which can be used to semi-customize the boat.

Construction:

  • 25” 5052 H-36 aluminum logs, with full-length keels and skirting.
  • Deck is constructed from ¾” pressure-treated plywood, and is finished in 24-oz. marine-grade carpet.
  • Rails are crafted from 1.25” anodized aluminum.
  • Roto-cast seat and furniture bases will have a life span measured in decades.
  • Fiberglass helm console includes an integrated cooler.
Specifications
Length 25’8″
Beam 8’6″
Max Draft NA
Deadrise NA
Displacement TBD
Fuel capacity 32 gal

Performance:

  • Top speed was over 30mph, with cruising speeds in the mid-20s. (We tested a prototype, but production boats should be similar.)

Handling:

  • Remains fairly flat in the turns, and sails over a slight lake chop.

Unique features:

  • The fiberglass bar seats four, and can be used while underway. Few or possibly no pontoon boats in this price range can offer a bar like this; usually, they’re reserved for very expensive models.
  • Fiberglass console is a step above roto-molds commonly found on pontoons.
  • 160-watt stereo, canvass camper enclosure, and corner stowage module all come standard.
