SunChaser 820 4.0 Captain's Report

A Multi-Purpose Party Barge--SunChaser 820 4.0

By Capt. Ron Svoboda

If you’re into pontoon boats you know the name Sunchaser. When I boarded the 820, I was impressed with what you get for the money, especially since this 820 is the 4.0 version which is geared for you anglers out there.

Construction and Layout

The boat starts with an easy to trailer and easy to maneuver 20 & 1/4 foot long by 8 foot wide deck secured to large diameter tubes for maximum buoyancy and performance. Then, at each corner comfy, swivel casting chairs are mounted to facilitate a family of happy anglers, each with their own space to work the water. The low profile fence keeps you safe, yet allows you to easily land your catch. I especially liked the fence’s gates that allow simple operation without pinching my fingers as so many others have done before.

More Features

The rest of the guests on board can lounge in style on the boats settee’s that offer comfort and storage below. There’s even a livewell on board located just forward of the helm station on the starboard side. This nifty box has a padded lid which provides extra seating and conversation space for two. If a trolling motor is on your wish list, that will not be a problem because Sunchaser already thought of it and included a pre-wired hook-up.

Stern Features

Near the back of the boat is a sun pad perfect for one. Concealed under the pad is a pop-up changing room that can do double duty by simply installing an optional Porta-Potti. Although erecting the changing compartment was easy, stowing it proved to be a challenge not for mere mortals.

At the Helm

A swivel bucket seat with armrests and tilt steering wheel ensures the captain will be at ease. While a large bimini top shields the helm station and the aft lounger from the hot sun.
