Inflatable pontoon boats are like a family minivan – you just change high-speed aquaplaning with big comfortable boat and you don't need to think about the amount of equipment, its size and weight. Despite boat size, it is fully collapsible and can be placed into a regular car (for example in Opel Zafira). Pontoons place into trunk and frame parts put on the car roof.
You can stop trying to fit in an inflatable boat as high stability lets you easily move all over the boat and stay on edge without lurch of the boat. High deck position decreases water spraying. Moreover, water on deck flows down via gaps between deck sections and the boat cannot be flooded which makes the boat very safe for using.
Despite the lack of aquaplaning mode, pontoon boat has advantages in displacement mode. The speed of a charged pontoon boat is higher than of a similarly charged inflatable boat. This is due to better aerodynamics of pontoons comparing with an inflatable boat. For example, the speed of inflatable pontoon boat T-60 equals to the speed of inflatable boat with 5h.p. motor – 15 km/h.
