    Captain's Report

    For almost half a century Harris Kayot has been building their trademarked “Flotebote”. Sure it’s a funny name, but it is also one of the smoothes running pontoon boats we’ve tested. The 220 Super Sunliner is Harris Kayot’s mid-sized family fun platform. Available in several configurations and a long list of options; you can customize your flotebote to give you exactly what you need. Like all Harris products we have tested, the 220 is full of innovative features that make boating safer and more fun. Harris Kayot prides themselves on producing all of their aluminum components in house. So they can assure their customers receive quality and satisfaction. Seating capacity is one of the most important things to consider when buying a pontoon boat and the 220 has plenty of seats. All of the upholstery work is done with comfort in mind. Thick padding and supple, high-grade vinyl give a luxurious feel to the seating accommodations. Under all of the cushions you’ll find storage space for your gear. A portion of the aft bench seat flips up, and with the optional privacy curtain installed, you have a changing room or a spot for a porta-potti. A small table can be installed at the aft bench, converting it into a dinning area.The helm station has its share of style and functionality too. With a fully adjustable bucket seat that swivels, the captain will be able to do his job without leaving the party. The fiberglass helm station incorporates all the gauges, controls and the stereo within easy reach. Although very simple, the dash panel is finished in simulated wood grain and includes waterproof switches and circuit breakers all in one area. A small, acrylic fairing provides protection from the wind while you’re underway. On the forward section of the helm station, is a large glove box and a couple of drink holders. Below the helm station is a spot for a 48-quart, insulated cooler.Cruising around the lake is where the Super Sunliner shines. As we performed our testing, we found the 220 was smooth as silk even with a small chop on the lake. Harris owns several patents on the Flotebote and a few of them are with the innovative details to the running surface. Equipped with a super quiet and fuel efficient Yamaha F90 outboard, we didn’t break any speed laws, however we were able to carry on a conversation at wide-open throttle. Top end speed was only 25 mph, and we were able to get there in only 8 seconds. More importantly the fuel efficiency achieved was excellent. You could literally cruise all weekend without having to make more than one fuel stop. Steering effort was another noticeable item, as the Uflex steering system provided maneuvering ease that is typically found only on hydraulic systems. Considering the years of experience, innovative technologies and a lifetime warranty on the hull, deck and fencing, the Flotebote has changed my views of what a first class pontoon boat should be. It has the ability to provide you and your family with years of effortless enjoyment and dependability.By Capt. Ron SvobodaTest Captain
