Sun Catcher Pontoon Series Boats

(09/16/2001 - LEBANON, MO.) The four deluxe fishing chairs give the angler a sense of control as the new Sun Catcher PB22F/C from G3 creates the ultimate fishing and cruising pontoon boat. The mid-sized pontoon has enough deck space to hold up to 12 angling enthusiasts, with each having ample room to play and land the catch of the day.

Like all Sun Catcher pontoon boats, the PB22F/C is built with an extra wide 8-foot, six-inch deck. The 22 feet long craft is built with heavy-duty deck extrusions built on 16-inch centers with through-floor bolted floors. The jumbo .080 gauge 23-inch by 25-inch logs with splash guards are filled with MaxiFloat foam and reinforced with .100 gauge nosecones. Also included is an under-deck performance shield.

The Sun Catcher PB22F/C features four primary fishing stations, two on the front and two at the stern. Each station has a comfortable deluxe upholstered fishing chair on a pedestal. Aerated livewells are located both forward and aft. Wiring and plug are provided for a 12-volt trolling motor.

The pilot maintains full control of the PB22F/C while sitting in a captain's chair behind the deluxe fiberglass console that features tinted windshield, Yamaha controls and cables, tilt steering, full instrumentation and AM/FM CD stereo with four speakers.

Wrap-around lounge seating with under-seat storage, complete with ABS dinette table with cup holders, the PB22F/C provides a relaxing get-away that is protected from the sun and rain with a color coordinated Bimini top. The deck is fully covered with 18-ounce marine grade snag resistant carpet. There is even a tanning deck and privacy enclosure included.

The PB22F/C is rated for 115 horsepower and the 23-gallon built-in fuel tank provides hours of fishing and boating fun. Navigation lights, courtesy lights, fire extinguisher and much more are included to make every outing worry-free.

Like all G3 boats, Sun Catcher pontoon boats are powered by Yamaha outboard engines. Buyers of a G3 boat, motor and trailer package also receive the G3 advantage package that includes free resident fishing licenses for the buyer for three years.
