More than just a third tube bolted to the deck, this Manitou innovation was engineered to optimize performance, beginning with the size and precise positioning of the center tube. Here’s the proof:
The 27″ tube, positioned 1.25″ lower than the outside tubes, results in a 5.25″ differential between the bottom of the center tube and the bottom of the outside tubes. It’s this precise positioning, along with strategically placed positive angle lifting strakes, that results in the exact degree of deadrise and water displacement needed to simulate the standard v-hull. Extensive research has confirmed that an inch higher or an inch lower will detrimentally affect ride quality, stability, acceleration, speed, and handling.
In other words, it’s all about balance. Like reverse angle chines on a monohull, negative angle lifting strakes can increase lift, but have negative impacts on ride quality due to increased slamming loads. By contrast, our strakes facilitate a smooth ride and enhance the nimble reflexes of a V-Toon. Are strakes detrimental to performance when placed on the outside of the lateral tubes? That may be true on our competitors’ boats, which are less agile and less predictable at higher speeds, but not ours. When speed and agility are what you desire, only the V-Toon hull can deliver.
THE BEST PERFORMANCE PONTOON ON THE MARKET STARTS WITH THE STRONGEST FRAME IN THE INDUSTRY. When it comes to how Manitou boats are built, and the quality of the materials used, “good enough” doesn’t work. From the fit and finish of a bench seat, to a single weld on a barracuda nosecone – we take the time to ensure every component meets an exceedingly high level of performance. As far as we’re concerned, there simply is no room, or need, for anything but the very best.
