Colorado Pontoon Boat Review
What you will learn in this Article
Although priced lower than many other inflatable pontoon boat options out there, there’s nothing cheap about this boat. Everything about this boat screams quality. From the large framing, to the powder coat finish. Even assembly is a snap and requires no extra force to put it all together. It should take you around an hour to put it together the first time. One of the most important things obviously is how the inflatable parts are constructed. The Colorado Pontoon does not disappoint with heavy nylon with a ton of storage pockets throughout.
The seat sits high enough for what you might want, but you probably will want to add a swivel seat. Without the swivel seat attachment, you probably won’t be able to access all those pockets that make the Colorado the most popular pontoon boat. This can be quite annoying if you need to adjust your trolling motor or get something and you really can’t. However, with all the money you save on this you could add a swivel for under $20 bucks. We recommend this Attwood 17720 Seat Swivel.
Colorado Pontoon In The Water
Enough about construction, how does the Colorado Pontoon perform in the water? It shines. It’s no wonder why this is the most popular pontoon boat in 2021, everything just feels so solid. Even the oars feel like high-end oars. They weren’t flimsy add ons that you’ll worry about getting damaged. The only downside is that because they are so heavy duty you’ll often get tired using them or maneuvering them when not in use.
What The Colorado Pontoon Boat Doesn’t Do Well
If you’re using the pontoon for fishing (is there another activity?), you’ll notice that for all the storage this thing has, there’s really no place for you rod and reel. Also, there were a fair amount of negative reviews from people expecting the inflatable pontoons to stay inflated. If our car tires need maintaining then so do pontoons. Always pack a pump for just in case, but if you’re using an inflatable pontoon then check the air before you go out. Seems like a no-brainer, but apparently it’s not.
Finally, this pontoon boat is amazing, but lacks a floor. This makes the boat easier to travel with but if you drop something while you’re out on the water it’s likely gone. This sounds pretty obvious but it also presents a situation when you’re fishing. The plus side is there are several attachments that you can add to this pontoon to eliminate most of this hassle.

Colorado Pontoon Boat FAQS
How difficult is the Colorado Pontoon Boat to travel with?
If you have a truck or jeep then it’s not hard at all. It’s roughly 75 pounds, and then takes around 15 minutes to inflate if you’re inflating and deflating each time. You need a high volume electric pump to really make inflating and deflating something that happens in under an hour.
Can the Colorado Pontoon handle rapids?
The short answer is yes. Depending on what you want to do with it, you’ll probably want to replace the oar locks. You likely won’t break these oars but you could definitely lose them with the default configuration. If you’re planning to go after class 3 rapids, I’d recommend replacing the seat… and keep your pump handy.
