There's a reason and a process behind every advance we make. And skilled crafts people bring it all together with impressive fit and finish. These are the best boats we've ever made, and arguably, the best the industry has to offer.
Because our construction methods and quality are second to none, we back every SUN TRACKER with the best warranty in the pontoon industry. Every 2014 SUN TRACKER is backed by a 10-year bow-to-stern warranty (supplemented with a limited lifetime warranty on deck and structural components) to assure your fun-filled days also come with the ultimate peace of mind.
24" DIAMETEROur standard pontoon logs are 24" in diameter (larger than many of our competitors) and warranted for the life of your boat. This size offers an optimal balance of high-riding flotation and efficient performance.
NO-KEEL DESIGNFrom the outset, SUN TRACKER logs have always featured an efficient no-keel design. The bulkheads separating each chamber are welded around the entire circumference of the tube, providing an air-tight seal and additional structural support, eliminating the need for an external keel that adds weight and drag.
ROUND LOG SHAPEOur cylinder-shaped logs offer maximum structural strength, compared to elliptical or U-shaped logs with inherently inferior structural geometry.
MULTICHAMBERED FAILSAFE FLOTATIONAir-filled, multichambered pontoons ensure failsafe flotation in the unlikely event of a puncture. For quality assurance and our owners' peace of mind, every log is pressure tested twice at the factory.
Compared to U-shaped foam-filled logs used by some manufacturers, our round, multichambered logs are lighter and ride higher in the water—for reduced drag and better fuel efficiency. During long-term ownership, an air-filled log is easy to weld and repair, while internal foam can become waterlogged and further damaged if attempts are made to make a weld repair.
SUPERIOR PERFORMANCESUN TRACKER XP3 extra-performance models feature three 26"-diameter pontoon logs with a total of six performance lifting strakes, two on each log, for enhanced all-around performance with better stability and control. In addition, to withstand the forces encountered at higher speeds, XP3 pontoon logs are made from thicker .100 gauge aluminum alloy.
MORE FEATURESREGENCY™ XP3 pontoons come equipped with a ski tow pylon, while SIGNATURE XP3 models feature ski tow pylon hardware to easily add one to the aft swim platform.
MERCURY® MOTOR OPTIONSThe XP3 package allows for even larger Mercury® engine options, including the best-in-performance Verado® models. For the PARTY BARGE® 22 XP3, choose motor options up to the 150 ELPT FourStroke. And for the PARTY BARGE® 24 XP3, choose motor options up to the 200 L Verado®.

M-SHAPED BRACKETSHeavy-duty M-shaped brackets are securely welded to the top of each pontoon. On 20-ft. and longer models, the exterior surface is one continuous piece, providing an added level of support along the full length of the boat. Interior M-bracket segments are staggered, permitting access to cables, plumbing and wiring. Working as a system, these M-brackets function like the foundation of a house, providing a solid base for the extruded Z-bar cross members which are bolted to them.
BOX-BEAM STRUCTUREThanks to the inherent box-beam design and closed structure of the SUN TRACKER Z-bar (compared to the open C-bar used by many), the structure is stronger with no exposed fasteners below deck.
Z-BAR CROSS MEMBERSZ-bar cross members, which support the deck, extend the full width of the boat, acting like floor joists in a house. These cross members are bolted to the M-shaped brackets at each end, using a total of four bolts to provide secure attachment and reduced flexing. Using computer-aided engineering, these Z-bars are variably spaced below the deck to provide maximum support where needed. Where flooring panels meet, they are securely fastened to the Z-bar and silicone sealed at the joint to prevent water intrusion.
ROBUST DESIGNUnlike a boat with a conventional hull, the deck of a pontoon boat is integral to the overall structure of the boat. More than thirty years of experience has produced a robust design, assuring the strength and integrity of the deck and substructure. For example, SUN TRACKER uses MORE THAN DOUBLE THE NUMBER OF DECK FASTENERS compared to the through-bolts used by some competitors.
REINFORCED BOW EYETo reduce the stress while winching your SUN TRACKER onto a trailer, the bow eyes are connected to three heavy-duty full width Z-bar cross members. Many competitors attach to only one or two cross members.
DECK FLOOROur ¾"-thick 7-ply pressure-treated deck floor is warranted for the life of your boat—ensuring your peace of mind as you embark on years of family adventures and trouble-free ownership.
TEK® FASTENING SYSTEMThe SUN TRACKER deck is secured to the Z-bars using coated TEK®-brand deck fasteners which friction-weld to the Z-bars as they are tightened. The reliability of this method has been proven over many years and millions of hours on the water. In its history of use on our pontoon boats, the TEK fastening system has no reported failures or warranty claims.
STURDY RAILSOur system includes sturdy 1.25" anodized aluminum rails and stanchions. The entire system is securely bolted through the floor and anchored to the structural Z-bars below, and our fence panels are securely attached to the rails using sound- and vibration-deadening insulation strips.
SECURITY GATESSUN TRACKER boats feature gates that open to the inside and feature double latches to guard against accidental opening.
Both the rail and gate systems are covered by our warranty for the life of your boat.
RAIL SPACERSRail spacers raise the railing above the floor covering to promote positive drainage and ventilation and to help prevent mold and mildew.
finish of the boat gives you outstanding convenience and comfort.
SAFE & SOUND STORAGECouches and lounges include spacious below-seat storage solutions and armrest compartments (varies by model). To secure your valuables, some of these storage areas are lockable.
SEATING QUALITYWe design and craft our own furniture at a facility within our manufacturing complex. Each piece of upholstery is built, custom sewn and carefully tailored by skilled crafts people with years of experience. Using marine-grade vinyl and threads, and a moisture barrier over the foam, our furniture is well protected from water intrusion—ready to provide you years of use and enjoyment.
ERGONOMIC COMFORTEvery SUN TRACKER couch is extremely comfortable because multiple-density foams are ergonomically placed to provide optimal support and comfort on seating areas, as well as in lumbar supports and headrests, where applicable.
COMFORT CARPETINGUnlike some, our sculptured, 22-ounce, marine-grade carpet is rubber backed to protect against moisture incursion from below, as well as to add an extra measure of comfort and a luxurious feel.
PLUMBING SYSTEMOn models equipped with livewells and/or sinks our plumbing system is routed through the M-brackets to keep it protected.
MARINE-GRADE CONNECTORSThroughout the boat, wiring harnesses are wrapped in abrasion-resistant conduit. Marine-grade, automotive-quality main harness connectors ensure reliable, water-resistant connections.
RELIABILITY & PERFORMANCEWhen your SUN TRACKER pontoon leaves the plant, it is completely rigged and ready to go by Mercury-trained technicians. Factory rigging ensures you'll experience superb reliability, maximum performance and great peace of mind through years of service.
OPTIONAL TRAILEROptional trailers are available for SUN TRACKER owners. Included are a bow boarding ladder, outboard motor support and EZ Lube hubs. Each trailer is custom crafted in our own facility and constructed from heavy-duty galvanized steel tubing with our GALVASHIELD® corrosion protection, then covered with a baked-on powder-coat finish. The result is a rugged, durable trailer with exceptional corrosion resistance, easy maintenance and lasting good looks.
the best in the pontoon industry.
