Canadian aluminium boat builder Princecraft is introducing two new pontoon models and has overhauled its Vectra/Sportfish brands with added features in a Platinum SE series.
The two new pontoon boats bring to 15 the number of category offerings from the Brunswick-owned, Quebec-based manufacturer, adding the Sportfisher 21-2RS and Vectra 21 RL for the new model year.
The new pontoon offerings have new exterior design and colour options, two Classic Edition packages for customisation by the buyer, additional fishing area and several new safety features.
“The Vectra/Sportfisher series is the perfect way to enjoy great day on the lake at a great price point,” said Rodier Grondin, Princecraft president, in a company news release. “You can go from a 17-footer up to 25 with different tubes configurations and different engines depending your usage. You can go fast, go fish or bring the entire family out for a day of tubing on the water.”
For the Platinum SE series fishing boats, Princecraft has added ways to extend a boater’s day on the water and make it an easier operating experience.
Upgrades like a heated captain’s seat and a new windshield style help against the elements, while the SIMRAD Go7 multifunction touch screen with VesselView Link allows instrumentation display, GPS functions, sonar, and downscan imaging for easier navigation, operation and fishing.
An improved rear casting platform is now covered in vinyl with an integrated privacy enclosure for the additional of an optional head and a 200-watt AM/FM/Bluetooth SonicHub2 Radio including an in-dash USB plug can accommodate digital devices and other entertainment needs.
Brunswick reports that the new models were warmly received by Princecraft dealers.
“During our recent dealer meeting, we made a commitment to our customers to continue to innovate and introduce new products that have more content and are more advanced than the products they replace. With both of these categories, we are confident that we will be able to continue to grow the brand beyond Canada,” Grondin said.
