For more than 30 years, SUN TRACKER® has built pontoon boats richly featured for fun, safety, durability, comfort and convenience. Every year, we explore new and better methods with a disciplined focus on continuous quality improvement. Today, each new SUN TRACKER is crafted using Lean Sigma manufacturing methods—the same best practices used by the top aerospace, automobile, appliance and medical equipment manufacturers.
There's a reason and a process behind every advance we make, and skilled craftspeople 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 them with the best warranty in the pontoon industry. Every 2014 and newer SUN TRACKER comes with 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.
Trust the flotation, balance, design and ride of our pontoon logs when you're on the water.
PARTY BARGE 20 DLX shown
Our standard pontoon logs are 24" in diameter (larger than many of our competitors' models) and warranted for the life of your boat. This size offers an optimal balance of high-riding flotation and efficient performance.
From 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.
Our cylinder-shaped logs offer maximum structural strength, compared to elliptical or U-shaped logs with inherently inferior structural geometry.
MULTICHAMBERED FAILSAFE FLOTATION
Air-filled, multichambered pontoons ensure failsafe flotation in the unlikely event of a puncture. For quality assurance and 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, resulting in 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.
To feed your need for speed, SUN TRACKER offers multiple performance
PARTY BARGE 24 XP3 shown
SUN TRACKER XP3 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.
MERCURY® MOTOR OPTIONS
The XP3 package allows for even larger Mercury®
engine options, including the best-in-performance Verado®
models. For the PARTY BARGE®
and FISHIN' BARGE®
22 XP3, you can choose motor options up to the 150 ELPT FourStroke. And for the PARTY BARGE and FISHIN' BARGE 24 XP3, choose motor options up to the 200 L Verado.

Our well thought-out, stable and durable deck structure keeps you safe and sound as you soak
up the sun.
Unlike boats with conventional hulls, the deck of a pontoon boat is integral to the overall structure of the boat. More than 30 years of experience has resulted in a robust design that assures the strength and integrity of the deck and its substructure for a lifetime of worry-free family fun.
Heavy-duty M-shaped brackets are securely welded to the top of each pontoon. On 20-foot 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 bolted to them.
Thanks to the inherent box-beam design and closed structure of the SUN TRACKER Z-bars (compared to the open C-bars used by many others), the structure is stronger with no exposed fasteners below deck.
Z-BAR CROSS MEMBERS
Z-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-brackets at each end, using a total of four bolts to provide secure attachment and reduced flexing. Using computer-aided engineering, the 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.
Top-grade materials and components result in a line of pontoon boats ready for years of family fun and memories.
As previously mentioned, the deck of a pontoon boat is integral to the overall structure of the boat. Our experience building top-quality boats has culminated in a robust design that assures the strength and integrity of the deck and substructure. For example, SUN TRACKER uses MORE THAN DOUBLE THE NUMBER OF DECK FASTENERS
in comparison to the thru-bolts used by some competitors.
REINFORCED BOW EYE
To reduce the stress while winching your SUN TRACKER onto a trailer, the bow eyes are connected to three Z-bar cross members. Many competitors attach their bow eyes to only one or two.
Our ¾"-thick seven-ply, pressure-treated deck is warranted for the life of your boat—ensuring peace of mind as you embark on years of family adventures and trouble-free ownership.
TEK® FASTENING SYSTEM
The SUN TRACKER deck is secured to the Z-bars using coated TEK-brand deck fasteners that friction-weld to the Z-bars as they're 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
Our attention to detail extends to the components of the deck enclosure as well.
Our system includes sturdy 1 ¼" anodized aluminum rails and stanchions. The entire system is securely bolted through the floor and anchored to the structural Z-bars below.
New for 2016, every SUN TRACKER is built with a fencing design that includes mounting the fence panels on the inside of the railings. This, combined with sound and vibration-deadening insulation strips, results in more durability and a quieter ride.
SUN TRACKER boats feature gates that open to the inside and have 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 spacers raise the railing above the floor covering to promote positive drainage and ventilation and help prevent mold and mildew.
Outfitted with satisfying features, the interior fit
and finish of the boat gives you outstanding convenience and comfort.
SAFE & SOUND STORAGE
Couches 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.
We 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 craftspeople with years of experience. Using marine-grade vinyl and thread and a moisture barrier over the foam, our furniture is well protected from water intrusion to provide you years of use and enjoyment.
Every 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.
Unlike some, our sculptured, 28-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.
All BASS BUGGY®
and FISHIN' BARGE models come standard with heavy-duty flooring throughout. In addition to being incredibly durable, this flooring provides a slip-resistant surface and is easy to clean.
Water is everywhere—a fact SUN TRACKER takes into consideration, whether water is being used or guarded against.
On fishing models, we route the livewell plumbing system through the M-brackets to protect it.
Throughout the boat, wiring harnesses are wrapped in abrasion-resistant conduit. Marine-grade, automotive-quality main harness connectors ensure reliable, water-resistant connections.
All SUN TRACKER models are factory rigged to Mercury specifications by Mercury-trained technicians.
RELIABILITY & PERFORMANCE
When your SUN TRACKER pontoon leaves the plant, it is completely rigged and made 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 trailers are available for SUN TRACKER owners. Each features bow boarding steps, outboard motor support and Super Lube hubs. Our trailers are custom crafted in our own facility from heavy-duty galvanized steel tubing with our GALVASHIELD®
corrosion protection, which includes a baked-on powder-coat finish. The result is a rugged, durable trailer with exceptional corrosion resistance, easy maintenance and lasting
