Pontoon manufacturer Premier Marine is introducing the Escalante, its newest walk-on upper deck model for 2016.

“This model is the ultimate pontoon for families who love to entertain and take advantage of everything boating has to offer,” Premier Marine president Lori Melbostad said in a statement. “The stairs lead to the center of the upper deck, where there’s a slide, two lounge couches and the best views on the lake.”

The stairway of the 10-foot-wide 310 Escalante is incorporated into the patent-pending Stairway Galley, which features a full door with a hard-sided bathroom/changing room, refrigerator, wine cooler and sink.

The curved steps are enhanced with Tesselation stone flooring and safety lighting. Standard features include a 36-inch PTXTM performance package, Marine Audio stereo and speakers, Seagrass flooring on the upper and lower decks, patent-pending Duro rails and new graphics, and a Heritage 10-Star chair and refrigerated cup holder at the helm.

“I think the Escalante takes comfort and easy living to the next level,” Melbostad said. “It’s got all the seating, storage and convenient luxury features to make the adults happy, along with that slide that’s just irresistible to kids of all ages.”
