Choosing a pontoon today can be an overwhelming experience and no one knows
this better than Chris Riddle, a marine industry veteran, who has helped customers
with their pontoon purchase decisions for decades. He has represented the best
pontoon brands in the industry, and over the years watched the pontoon complexity
grow and the construction quality decline.
In 2010, Chris partnered with a friend who shared his passion and vision for a luxury pontoon that would be constructed with the highest quality materials and be hand built by highly skilled craftsmen and women. Their pontoon would come standard with all the features most customers expect in a pontoon. Whether it be the leathery feel of the furniture, the powerful command center, or a smooth cruise, their customers should experience effortless luxury…thus, Coach Pontoons came to be.
THE COACH WAY
It has been almost 10 years since our first pontoon rolled down the line and while
we have embraced innovation such as the addition of smart NMEA 2000® digital
technology on all our helms, our basic philosophy hasn’t changed. Our pontoons
still come standard with more of the features consumers desire, with designs that
have high aesthetic appeal, and built with only premium materials, by only skilled
craftsmen. Our attention to detail and uncompromising quality standards applied
to every Coach Pontoon is also backed by our 10-year bow-to-stern warranty.
We believe our construction is second to none in the industry, and we encourage
you to take the time to learn more about our pontoons. We are committed to
delivering an owner experience that is effortless and enjoyable every step of the way.
