Customer feedback from around the country helped develop Harris FloteBote's new Solstice pontoon boat model that features various seating arrangements including the new Transformer Lounger. The vessel has an extended rear deck for easy water access, a new fence design and accepts a wide range of outboards. An optional entertainment galley offers storage, counter space and more cup holders. The Transformer Lounger adjusts to accommodate guest-preferred lounging styles, i.e. bench seating or chaise lounge, for listening to an optional pop-up speaker that rotates 360 degrees. Available in three models - 230, 250 and 270 - the Solstice offers five seating arrangements and shade colors. Retail starts at $31,020 (includes Mercury 50-hp 4-stroke outboard).
