With their ample seating capacity, comfortable accommodations and ability to do so many things well, family-friendly pontoons like Misty Harbor’s Biscayne Bay 2285 CE have a lot to offer Great Lakes boaters.

There’s plenty of room for a dozen adults to stretch out on the neatly upholstered furniture, which creates up to three distinct zones in the boat. Twin front loungers surround a pedestal-mount table, creating a private area for quiet conversation while offering a multitude of seating possibilities.

A similar wraparound lounge in the stern offers room to stretch out under the cover of a Bimini top, providing a welcome escape from the mid-day sun. Installing a removable filler cushion in front of the rear gate expands this area’s versatility.

But the showpiece of this model is the amidships entertainment bar, complete with four stainless steel pedestal- mount seats and LED lighting. Not only does this offer a shady lunch spot, but also provides that kitchen island-style lounging area that everyone seems to naturally gravitate to.

“With its comfortable seating and thoughtful amenities, this is the perfect day boat for families who want to enjoy all that the Great Lakes have to offer,” says Al Visintainer, store manager at Centerpointe Boat Services.

The Biscayne Bay 2285 CE comes with a long list of standard features, including courtesy lights, stainless steel beverage holders, a removable oval table, the Biscayne Bay series upgraded console with instrument pack, a Kicker KMC1 puck stereo with four mushroom speakers, a chrome-accent steering wheel with tilt, and a Dowco trailerable playpen cover with a rail clip mounting system.

Of course, Misty Harbor also offers an enticing option list, allowing owners to personalize the boat with amenities like the available Pro Series ski tow bar and the bow recliners with entertainment center. Maximum power in its standard configuration is 150 ponies, but adding the available Tripletoon Performance Package provides a third center pontoon and a 58-gallon fuel tank — plus the ability to handle engines up to 250 hp.
