What We’re Not Crazy About
- Although easy to transport, this boat can be a bit heavy (around 70 pounds) for one person to set up and put in the water alone.
- Even though this pontoon breaks down into a reasonably small package, it can be difficult to fit into the back seat or trunk of a standard car.
- We found the seat adjustment on this boat to be a bit tricky.
- The lack of cup holders found on this boat is annoying.
- The closing inflation mechanism does take some practice to get used to. Since it loses air quickly, it can take several tries at first to get inflated.
- While the oars are a great feature, allowing drivers access to hard to reach fishing holes, it really does take quite a bit of work to maneuver the boat with juts paddles. Most Colorado XT owners advise adding a small trolling motor for more flexibility.
We Recommend It For
- Beginning boaters will find this pontoon easy to manage and fun to drive.
- Those with limited space. Since no trailer is needed to transport the Colorado XT pontoon boat, it works well for those with min vans, small trucks and SUV’s.
- Those with a tight budget. The cost of this boat makes it an ideal choice for those who can’t afford a larger pontoon but still want to enjoy the water.
We Don’t Recommend It For
- Those with little patience. Although this boat is easy to assemble and quick to set up, it does take some practice to get the routine down.
- Those with a small car. Once dissembled, the boat doesn’t always fit into smaller cars and trunks.
The Colorado XT Pontoon boat is a great option for those who want the flexibility of fishing and boating without having to drag a trailer to the lake or find a place to store their boat off season. This sturdy model offers years of fun on the water with relatively little maintenance and extra expense. Fun to drive and comfortable to sit in for longer periods of time, both fishing enthusiast and family’s will find this pontoon boat a fun way to enjoy their local waterways.
