Building pontoon house boats with plastic pontoons.

Any idea on building pontoon house boats with plastic pontoons? I am interested to build my own houseboat, and I wish to use plastic pontoons. I would prefer that the pontoon sections would fit in to each other to get the size I want.

I figure the plastic would be light weight and easy to maintain, and being able to easily connect them together would simplify the construction process. Do you know of any company which makes pontoons out of plastic?

Thanks, Grant.

Well Grant, I think your idea of building a pontoon house boat with plastic pontoons makes good sense. There is definitely some advantages for using them.

Plastic or a high impact modular float system, makes for easy and simple maintenance, no corrosion, lightweight, easily built, and easily repaired or replaced.

You can have a look at a few articles on our site about plastic pontoons.

The one company that comes to mind for plastic pontoons for houseboats would be Pontoonz, Modular Float Systems and I think there are in your neighborhood.

Lastly, hopefully some of our readers will share and post comments about their plastic pontoon houseboat building experiences. Feel free to use the "Click here to post comments." link found near the bottom of this page.

Also here in the USA is a company called Wilsons plastic pontoons. I've been thinking about the 36" ones for a houseboat I would like to build.
