1_Godfrey

Elkhart, Ind.-based Godfrey Marine has redesigned its AquaPatio pontoon line with an integrated swim platform that allows for the installation of twin outboards while maintaining the model’s 8-foot, 6-inch beam for trailering.

The new AquaPatio Twin models run from 25 to 28 feet in four configurations: AP256 SB (Split Bench), AP256 UL (Ultra Lounge), AP256 SBW (Split Bench Windshield) and AP256 ULW (Ultra Lounge Windshield).

The builder offers twin 150- to 300-hp outboards from Mercury, Suzuki and Yamaha, with optional joystick packages.

“The new dual-engine AquaPatio models offer owners unprecedented comfort and control,” Godfrey general manager Ben Duke said in a statement. “Two engines obviously give you more power, but they also make maneuvering in tight quarters a snap.”
