White’s Cycle and Marine
The new QX performance boats display Bennington’s exceptional attention to detail with a fresh twist on a timeless design. You’ll find a raw and striking profile that is inspired by the universal appeal of sleek lines and distinct handcrafted styling. This new line of fiberglass boats empowers your creative side allowing you to choose from over 20,000 color options and create something that is completely unique to you. Bennington pontoon boats are available in hundreds of floor plans with thousands of configurations, so you can choose the layout that fits you best.
Quiet, Smooth Ride Even in Rough Waters
Thicker cross channels provide more vertical strength than the typical channels found on most pontoons. This combined with our extruded M-deck brackets and fanged elevator bolted deck construction minimizes twisting and provides a solid, quiet pontoon ride.
Bennington offers sophisticated seating. With ergonomic design and a blend of five compressions of high-density foam, they provide the perfect combination of support and comfort. From design elements like integrated self-draining channels to the selection of materials the furniture is engineered to resists moisture and mildew.
Luxurious & Durable Interiors
With the finest craftsmen and first-class upholstery, Bennington is known for its durable and luxurious interiors. For example, Simtex™ is a soft to the touch, easy to clean, premium vinyl also found in world-class yachts.
Helps when navigating shallow waters by riding higher in the water.
Reinforced guides placed at the bottom of the tube to protect it in shallow water and improve tracking while underway.
Similar to a wing of a plane, these are placed on the bottom side of the tubes to provide hydrodynamic lift. Improved acceleration, top speed and stability are added benefits. SPS, ESP and ESP-10 will also dramatically increase in the boat’s turning performance especially during heavy banking.
Add lift, decrease splashing and increase top speed as much as 4.8 miles per hour, depending on engine selection. For optimum performance, lifting strakes are recommended for engines rated 115hp or greater and for boats exceeding 30 mph. Lifting strakes are recommended for 90 hp or greater on boats with twin elliptical pontoons.
Seastar® Hydraulic Steering
Eases steering effort with higher horsepower engines. Expect two-handed handling in hard turns. Recommended for engines rated 115 hp or greater.
Power-Assist Hydraulic Steering
Powered by an electronically controlled hydraulic pump connected to the SeaStar® system. The electric pump “does the work for you” so the driver can expect incredible handling and turning with little effort. Recommended for engines rated 150 hp or greater.
Underdeck Wave Shield
Deflects water from the bottom of the deck, which reduces “surging” and enhances the soft, quiet ride in rough water.
