Premier’s 36" U-shaped tube is unlike anything you’ve experienced on the water. The PTX has a 12" flat planing surface built into the bottom of the tube giving the boat lift. Your pontoon will get up and ride on the flat surface and perform like a V-hull boat that carves the corners like a competition ski boat. The PTX tube is built out of .125 heavy-duty aluminum to accommodate today’s powerful engines.
In 2001 Premier was the first manufacturer to incorporate in-floor storage into a pontoon. Like many of our innovations it has since been imitated, but never duplicated. Our 7' long storage area has 15.5 cubic feet of space to accommodate almost anything you need to bring on your boat, including, skis, wakeboards, fishing rods, life jackets and boat covers.
For safe and easy piloting we include hydraulic steering on every PTX we sell. Sure, hydraulic steering is not mandatory, but as a buyer you will appreciate driving a boat that handles with the same ease as the power steering on your car. Also ask about power assist for large–and twin–engine applications.
Our PTX package includes lifting strakes on the inside of the outboard tubes. Lifting strakes allow the boat to get up on plane faster and will increase your top speed by about 10%. Through extensive research, Premier’s test pilots have found that pontoons perform best with strakes only on the inside of the tubes. Placing strakes on the outside of the tubes drastically decreases handling and overall boat performance. Premier’s lifting strakes are sealed airtight, giving our boats a faster time to plane.
While designing the PTX, Premier’s engineering team understood the need to spend the day on the water with family and friends - rather than at the fuel dock. As a result, Premier’s PTX features a 53-gallon fuel tank located in the center tube, placed in front of the transom.
Ski Tow Bar
Mounted above the engine and bolted into the transom, the ski tow bar keeps your lines out of the water and away from the propeller. Whether you choose skiing or wakeboarding, the ski tow bar gives you all the performance you need for a day of fun on the water.
