The Princecraft Quorum 25 SE is an all-new pontoon boat, and it has a rather unusual layout – there’s a full bar and food-prep area on the port-side stern deck. The boat also has a huge cool-factor, tricked out with touches like blue LED lighting, spinning, height-adjustable bar stools, a sporty steering wheel, and a simulated-burlwood dash.
Since the stern is taken up by the bar area, the pop-up changing room is shifted forward, amidships. The bow lounges are as you’d expect: two comfy couches face inward, and there’s plenty of stowage underneath. If you need a cup holder or arm rest, several are provided. There’s another comfy lounge aft, on the starboard side of the pontoon boat.
When we took the Princecraft Quorum 25 SE for a spin, it cruised in the mid 20s and ran well over 30-mph at top-end. We’re not publishing exact figures with this review since we tested a prototype boat and the production model will be a bit different, but the production boats are expected to run at least that fast.
There’s a sink recessed into the console, and you can get an optional water system plumbed to it. More about that console: it’s secured to the deck via a hefty aluminum L-bracket (which is screwed to the console; I’d change these for through-bolts if this were my boat), and there’s also a good bit of stowage underneath it. Additional stowage can be found in the bar.
Battery stowage is rather unusual as well; walk out onto the swim platform, and you’ll notice a hatch swing out that provides access to the batteries, which are housed under the aft lounge.
