Lowe Platinum 23 RFL (2014-) Captain's Report

Lowe Platinum 23 RFL Snapshot Report --

Mission of the Lowe Platinum 23 RFL

As illustrated by the publicity picture for this boat, it is designed for the active family with children. The boat is designed to be added to as the children get older and a towing pylon is offered as an option. The boat is also designed to be as safe as possible for little ones.

Lowe Platinum 23 RFL

The Lowe Platinum 23 RFL is a premium pontoon boat in the 23-boat Lowe pontoon boat line-up. Note the table forward and the two loungers aft which set this boat apart.

Distinguishing Features

●29" (73 cm) tall fencing

●25" tube diameter. While many boats have this size tube some have tubes that are 23" or 24" (58 to 60 cm) in diameter

●4-step boarding ladder, something all boats should have but few do

●28-oz. carpet

Lowe Platinum 23 RFL

There is plenty of storage under the seats for beach towels, gear and food. We like the patterned blue 28-oz. carpet.

Major Standard Features

●Deluxe chaise rear-facing lounge with walkthrough

●Port bow chase lounge

●Double-hinged furniture seats

●Deluxe high-back reclining helm seat with swivel and slider

●Custom table with drink holders

●Tilt steering

●Hydraulic steering with engines 115-hp or larger

●Fusion Marine AM/FM stereo with weather band

●Fusion Marine iPod dock and MP3 jack

Lowe Platinum 23 RFL

The seats both forward and aft can be used for storage. A cooler goes under the helm console. If the XL option is purchased another storage compartment can be put in the center toon. Note the optional faux wood deck in the stern 1/3rd of the boat.

Options To Consider

●XL package with center 25" toon with lifting strakes and spray deflector

●Custom ski tow pylon available with the XL option and an optional 150-hp engine

●Faux wood rear decking or full decking

This photograph illustrates a family dichotomy that is universal: the young kids are in the bow and the older child would rather be by himself in the rear. The parents occupy the middle ground to keep the peace.

It will replace a defect in any other part of the hull reported within 10 years from the original purchase following a pro rated schedule.

We like the port and starboard consoles in the stern quarters for drinks, snacks and storage below.

Price

The Lowe Platinum 23 RFL powered by a Mercury 150-hp 4-stroke engine with hydraulic steering, carries an MSRP of $39,999.

Observations

To our way of thinking there are a lot of things about this boat that set it apart and give it good utility. We like the aft chase lounge seats. Likewise, the deluxe helm seat looks quite comfortable. All of the seating in the Platinum 23 RFL looks well padded and comfortable.

We think the standard 28-oz. blue pattern carpet looks good and should hide dirt as well to some degree. But perhaps most important to parents with small children is the 29" high fencing.

Lowe Platinum 23 RFL

Powered by the 150-hp Mercury 4-stroke the Platinum will be able to engage in towing sports.
