290 Grand Entertainer (2014-)
Premier 290 Grand Entertainer (2014-) Test Video

The Grand Entertainer is part of Premier Pontoon’s Luxury series and it delivers on its name in spades. She presents ultra comfortable seating from bow to stern with high end Flexsteel brand furnishings and admiral’s chairs that swivel and recline with equal levels of comfort. But without a doubt, her most stunning aspect is the full bar at the stern. Not an “entertainment center” with a sink and counter. A full bar complete with four telescoping bar stools, an overhead Cabana top with glassware holders, a sink with cutting board, and even a refrigerator. It’s easily the most eye catching boat on the lake.
