Pontoon boats proved resilient during the downturn because of their versatility and affordability, with aluminum pontoon boats seeing a pickup today. This model, which comes with an acrylic bar top, can hold up to 14 people. As of mid-March, Nautic Global Group, which owns Godfrey Pontoon Boats, said unit sales at boat shows of pontoon boats jumped 65 percent from a year earlier.
