After almost a dozen years on the lake with our Chaparral 236 Sunesta, we have decided to replace it with a pontoon boat. After quite a bid of research and some dealer visits for various makes, we settled on Bennington as being the best choice to pursue. Needless to say when visiting our Bennington dealer, we were overwhelmed with the many models, configurations, and options. Fortunately this dealer had a number of different models/layouts on the showroom floor to help us narrow down our wishes. The General Manager was extremely helpful in translating our interests into order requirements. We placed an order with the dealer on December 12, 2020 for a 2021 24LXSRD with a planned delivery of April, 2021. Some of the highlights for our order include, 300 HP Mercury, ESP, Mercury Go7 Simrad, Mercury Power Steering, and Center Tube Tank. We anxiously await delivery.
