NEXTOON INNOVATION

As the leader in marine innovation, it’s our passion to continually innovate and bring forward ingenious new solutions to boat builders that is born from our leadership and expertise. Dowco has recognized that the pontoon industry has been struggling with the lack of quality manufacturing labor over the years. Good welders are in high demand and are typically the highest paid labor in production. Also, advances in styling opportunities, thanks to 3D modeling, allow for customization and added premium features throughout a boat’s design, yet is beyond the grasp of most traditional pontoon boat manufacturers

RETRACTABLE COVER

An industry first, a retractable cover system that stows within the boat’s cavity. Take away the issues of where to store the cover while it’s not in use, or fumbling around with it to figure out which end-is the front.

STOWABLE BIMINI

Stow your bimini in the cavity of your boat when not in use. Another industry first.

FURNITURE DESIGN PARTNERSHIP

Collaborate with Dowco’s design team to design and build furniture the way you’ve always wanted it to be. Shape, style, function, color… if you can think it we can do it.

NEXTOON INNOVATION

COMPARE TRADITIONAL PONTOON MANUFACTURING PROCESSES TO NEXTOON’S ADVANCED CONSTRUCTION AND FINISHES

ALUMINUM:

  • is a louder ride.
  • is prone to denting & marring.
  • is more labor intensive.
  • requires more skilled labor.
  • takes longer to install.
  • is limited to 2D.
  • has limited styling options.
  • requires a 3rd part supplier to achieve additional styling (anodizing or powder coating).
  • fluctuates more in cost.
  • is subject to volatile metal costs.

FIBERGLASS:

  • is more expensive.
  • is slower to produce – One unit, per tool, per day.
  • is more prone to marring and scratches.
  • is heavier.
  • is much more expensive to replace.
  • is capital intensive.
  • is difficult to store. (Parts do not nest together, takes up a lot of space.)
  • is difficult to ship.
