• Berkshire Tritoon At Dock

Tritoon vs. Pontoon

The tritoon vs. pontoon debate is a hot topic just anywhere where people enjoy their time on a lake, particularly around Hayward and Cumberland. Fortunately, the differences between a tritoon boat and a Berkshire pontoon are pretty straightforward.

What is a Tritoon?

The only real difference between a tritoon and a pontoon is the number of tubes that comprise the boat’s hull: a pontoon has two tubes, while a tritoon has three. While you can tell a pontoon from a tritoon at a glance, there are other differences that you should take into account.

3 Pontoons vs. 2 Pontoons

  • Because tritoons have three tubes that make up their hull, they also distribute weight more evenly on the water and can handle more horsepower as a result. This isn’t to say that pontoons are slouches in this regard, of course. There are also drawbacks to that increase in potential speed: while a tritoon can theoretically handle a bigger engine than a pontoon, a tritoon will also generally cost a lot more money.
  • Both pontoons and tritoons are good for a relaxing day on Rice Lake and are also great for fishing. While a tritoon theoretically offers greater stability, you’re unlikely to notice the difference on small bodies of water.
  • The third tube on a tritoon can make them much more difficult to steer, which can add complications when you’re navigating tight spaces or attempting to dock the boat.
  • As a practical matter, a tritoon will require a larger trailer for transportation, and will require more space for winter storage.
