Boats and Business

Few things can give you more pride than owning your own business. In this day and age, a lot of people tend to go to more big name stores to do holiday shopping, but there are a few areas of business that is better left to local and small town names. One such area revolves around the boating industry. People love romantic adventures, family friendly tours, or just a nice fishing trip out over the water. With a pontoon boat, you can do all these and more. Aside from the personal recreational uses of owning a pontoon boat, they are the perfect foundation for a new business venture.

These tours and fishing trips are a fantastic business to get into because they have a wide area of opportunity. All you need is a dock and a waterway. You can give tours in the canals near the ocean or the rivers and lakes in the middle of America. You can use this as a primary income or just a weekend project for extra income. Find the right area, and you could make your entire living and extra just off a single pontoon boat.

To make this even easier for business use, pontoon boats are highly versatile when it comes to being built. If you are looking for a popular tour boat, there are commercial catamarans that are long and have cover to protect crowds from heat. For fishing they have ones with gates on all sides to rail in the catch, or lower portions of the boat to place yourself closer to the water. They can be equipped to have one side without a railing and a lowered surface to accommodate scuba diving activities. Any purpose you can imagine a pontoon boat being used for, there is a model to fit that use perfectly.

Take the first steps toward owning your own business by looking at the possibilities offered by Fiesta Marine and Sightseer Boats. Built to be used in both fresh and saltwater, the pontoon boats at Fiesta Marine are perfect for any situation.

Boat Smart

A seawater pontoon boat is a wonderful investment with lots of potential. It can be the foundation for family outings, a fishing platform to spend the day with friends, it can become the grounds for a business, giving waterway tours or fishing trips, in some places they can be used as a water taxi as well. It is important to remember that while a saltwater pontoon boat can hold up against the decay and issues that come with salt, they can’t hold up with the conditions of the ocean.

Your typical boat or ship, built based on a design seen for thousands of years, has a rounded bow coming to a point. These help it to break through waves on the ocean and helps with stability. These boats and ships were designed specifically for ocean travel.

A pontoon boat is built to be rectangular. Though this is perfect for waterways and lakes, they don’t break through waves on the ocean. A pontoon boat has enough buoyancy that the waves should not capsize it. They will however send large amounts of water over the side of the boat. This will cover the seats and tables with water, making it difficult for passengers to stay dry. The pontoon boat will also be difficult to steer.

Some pontoon boats are built with larger motors and a tri-toon (three pontoon) design. This would improve the handling and stability of the pontoon boat in rough waters, but still not make it an ideal vessel. So boat smart, and use pontoon boats in calmer waters. Canals, waterways, rivers, and lakes would be the ideal locations for them. When using a custom pontoon boat from Fiesta Marine, their area of use can expand to both salt and fresh water.
