Bennington S20

A high-quality tritoon at a surprising price point.

By Arnie Hammerman
Pontoon boats have made a comeback in recent years and are now some of the most popular boats around.


  • LOA: 21'
  • Beam: 8'6"
  • Draft:
  • Weight: 2,046 lbs.
  • Fuel Capacity: 21.4 gals.
  • Water Capacity:
  • Power: 115-hp Suzuki outboard
  • Price: $29,995

A long way from their humble beginnings, many now feature high-end furnishings and features that can push their price up well beyond $100,000. That may be fine for some, but many buyers in the pontoon boat market are simply looking for a fun, comfortable and inexpensive way to get out on the water. Realizing this, Bennington recently released a 20-foot tritoon where quality meets affordability.

Tritoons are recognized for superior performance and stability and are not often found on entry-level boats. The Bennington S20 tritoon has the Sport Performance System (SPS) with lifting strakes and performance foils, and features three full-size, 25-inch pontoons. This gives the boat more lift for smooth acceleration and balance even when loaded. Tritoons also run more evenly and safely in rough conditions.

The standard L-shaped seating is the most popular setup on pontoon boats; what is not as common is the quality of this boat’s furniture. The seating has dual foam packs, and instead of typical monotone vinyl seat coverings found on most entry-level boats, it has Semtex two-tone fabric. Semtex looks better, is durable, and is far more comfortable than vinyl.

This Bennington package comes standard with a 115-hp Suzuki outboard. Other standard features include docking lights, a ski tow bar, a privacy station, an upgraded Kicker sound system with four speakers, a Bimini top, a dinette table and a smart clip mooring cover.

Bennington is the No. 1 seller of pontoon boats in the world and is known for building quality boats, which they back up with a lifetime warranty on structural components and a transferable 10 year “Bow to Stern” warranty for everything else. Boaters can now buy a top-quality Bennington S20 tritoon packed with features for an introductory price of only $29,995 at Hall’s Sport Center. I suspect these boats won’t last long as the Bennington S20 tritoon is a lot of boat for an excellent value.

“We are very excited to be able to offer our customers a great Bennington product in a tritoon configuration with a 115-hp motor and a price that can’t be beat,” says Hayden Hall, sales manager at Hall’s Sport Center.
