Captain's Report

The Bennington 207 Si is a mid-size pontoon boat outfitted to please both the fisherman and folks just wanting a good time on the lake. With features designed for the serious fisherman, the 207 is practically like taking the fishing pier anywhere you want to go on the water.FeaturesThe bow rail runs right to the edge on the Bennington 207 to maximize on board deck room. But you will notice that docking lights are nicely integrated into the corners. A forward door makes landing on the beach easy. To the port and starboard at the bow are convenient cup holders flanked by rod holders to give your fishing arm a break.The forward fishing deck provides two dedicated fishing chairs and another seat to the rear that doubles as a live well. With no bench seats at the bow, all the room is used for fishing space. The live well has its own pump and aerator.At the HelmThe control console features a full set of instruments in easy to see black on white gauges. Toggle switches are used for other systems onboard and are backed-up by circuit breakers instead of fuses. To the left of the steering wheel is a marine grade radio/CD player. There is also a tilting steering wheel suitable for standup driving. The plush captain’s seat swivels. To the right of the steering wheel is a convenient cupholder and Garmin Fishfinder 80Plenty of SeatingFor those who aren’t fishing, the stern lounge area features a comfortable and roomy L-Shaped couch. A small, removable table is at the center. Like all Bennington Pontoon boats, storage space under the rotoformed seats is generous. They are plastic lined and self draining.On the starboard side is a large locker that is big enough to store skies or fishing poles.Just because this pontoon boat is outfitted for fishing doesn’t mean some privacy isn’t needed. Bennington has included a pop-up changing room near the stern. The hydraulic lifts make the process of raising the curtains a snap.The stern features another fishing platform with one pedestal seat. A cupholder as well as a fishing rod holder are conveniently nearby.The Rail around the Bennington 207 is just under two feet tall. It’s a bit short, but just tall enough to keep young kids safely inside. A small door leads to the stern boarding area and a fold down ladder.PowerThe Yamaha 60 mounted on the Bennington 207 included a special high-thrust propeller. The oversized propeller provides more aggressive acceleration and performance than a standard propeller. The propeller’s hub is actually larger than the foot of the engine, so water flows through the propeller’s hub.PerformanceEquipped with a Yamaha 60 horsepower outboard, we recorded a top speed of 20.2 miles per hour at 5,800 rpm. At its 13 miles per hour cruise speed the Yamaha turns 4,000 rpm and delivers 7.4 miles per gallon. That gives a cruise range of more than 173 miles.

All fuel consumption numbers are the total for all engines in the boat. Speeds are measured with Stalker ProSports radar gun or GPS. Fuel consumption (gallons per hour) measured with Floscan digital fuel-flow meter or by on-board factory-installed diagnostic instruments. Range is based on 90% of published fuel capacity. Sound levels determined using Radio Shack digital decibel meter on A scale. 68 dBA is the level of normal conversation. Time to plane is measured from start of acceleration to formation of rooster tail behind boat.
