Harris FloteBote Sunliner 240: Video Pontoon Boat Review

The Harris FloteBote Sunliner 240 may be a luxury machine, but when we reviewed this pontoon boat we discovered surprisingly sporty performance, too.

Pontoon boats like the new Harris FloteBote Sunliner 240 are about one thing: relaxing. Our video boat reviewer and pontoon boat expert Jeff Hemmel took a first-hand look at the Sunliner 240, and spent a day testing it for design, performance, and most important, luxury. Here’s what Jeff discovered.

Clearly, he did enjoy kicking back in the bow lounger, sitting in the club chair, and relaxing on the aft loungers. But it’s a bit surprising just how much fun he had at the helm, too, as a 150-hp Mercury Verado outboard proved to be plenty of power. But the power-plant isn’t the only reason why this pontoon boat performs so well. Harris FloteBote has done a lot of design work below the waterline, too – watch the video, to find out what they’ve done, and to learn more about the Sunliner 240. If you’re still hungry for info after that, read Jeff’s text review, Harris FloteBote Sunliner 240: Not Your Grandfather’s Pontoon Boat. You can also visit Harris FloteBote, or see Sunliner 240 listings.

Our reviewer enjoyed lounging, but he also enjoyed driving the 2014 Sunliner 240 pontoon from Harris FloteBote.
