Our Sweetwater pontoon is well built and comfortable. It has the same construction as the higher end models without frills we don't need. We can add accessories as we choose for a custom pontoon.

North Bay Marina had a great selection,knowledgeable sales people and service. We have owned many boats but this is the first pontoon boat. We love it. It is quiet, rides smooth ,well built and is a pleasure to drive. Everything works as designed and is of the finest quality. Well worth the investment.

I have owned many boats of different styles and makes, from Yachts to John boats and all between. The 2017 Pontoon I bought was a significant upgrade from the Bass Tracker I traded in,, the quality was much superior and I am impressed with the quality of craftsmanship. Cape Fear Marine here in Wilmington NC was very easy to work with and I would recommend them to any one who wants a superior boat and a service staff that is second to none. Rare to find a quality boat and dealership all in one.

I recently purchased a Godfrey (Sweetwater) pontoon boat and so far I have no complaints. The quality of the boat is top of the line and it has adequate space for me and my family.

My son and I looked high and low after or family purchased our lake home for the thing that would make it all complete, THE BOAT!! We look at many brands, both new and used, but kept coming back to the GODFREY family of boats. I (we) feel that the overall quality (fit and finish) was just a step above of other boats in the same price point. We have used it now for a little over a month and have enjoyed it very much. The only thing that could be improved, is the sound system, not user friendly.

Last year we purchase a 22 foot Sweetwater with a 150 Yamaha and the boat and motor are wonderful. It's our first tri toon and the ride is very nice. The styling and performance are second to none. Boaters Marine in Quincy, Michigan are great people to deal with when we purchased the boat.

Great boat for what we wanted it for. The construction is the best I seen that was the main reason for us picking this pontoon.

This is our first pontoon boat, and it has exceeded our expectations. It is built with quality and comfort in mind. We followed suggestions from our dealer K&S Marine, when ordering our boat, and are thrilled with the results. This is a fishing pontoon boat, but can be used for so much more, with the 90 HP motor. Thanks for making such a fine product.

We recently purchased lake property, and wht good is a house on a lake without a boat? My wife suggested we go to a boat show at Timbers Marina and I went with the caveat that we wouldn't buy a boat, just learn about them. We bought a boat. No pressure sales and the Sweetwater we bought was beautiful, and the price was great. We have virtually no issues with the engine and pontoon boat. One of those purchases that we look back on with no regret.

After researching pontoons for several months, we decided to purchase a 22' 2016 Godfrey Sweetwater pontoon from Keowee Marina in Seneca, SC. Our salesperson, Terry Chones was extremely helpful in the educational and sales process of the entire transaction. The staff at Keowee Marina was first class and we have enjoyed our boat on beautiful Lake Keowee ever since!

Very happy with our 1880 coastal edition pontoon boat. Everything seems of good quality. The only thing I would do better is reinforcing the fishing pole holders and how they attach to the boat. I got a big hit and whatever hit my line almost ripped the holder off the boat. They are screwed in and not very strong. I will be replacing the screws with bolts. Other than that...I absolutely love my boat.

This boat provides many avenues of fun, and outshines many other boats. The slide, the bar, the stereo system, and the top deck allow for many activities during the day. We added a BBQ and dog ladder, and life is good. You will love the quality of this boat.

We are loving our 2016 Godfrey Marine Sweetwater Premium edition. We previously had an Avalon that suited our needs as first time boat owners. Now that we know what we're doing, the Godfrey fits the bill with wonderful upgrades and an awesome Mercury 4-stroke engine. Gunnels Marine has provided us with outstanding support during the sales and delivery process and we know their reputation for service will be exceptional when we need it.

We loved our neighbors boat and found a dealer that would deliver to our lake in Bluffton, SC, . It's a great boat and many of our friends thought it was a real upgrade from the Tracker sold by Bass Pro. The dealer is not close to our location, so it was hard to get service, but the issues were small enough that I could fix them myself. Godfrey addressed these by send the parts needed. Great customer service starts with the manufacture. Thank you Godfrey!

Purchased our Sweetwater 2486 new. Have finished our first season on the river and have not had a single issue. The quality is top notch. There is plenty of room to entertain and enjoy time with family. Our salesperson listened to what we were looking for in a new boat and strived to make sure we got what would fit our needs. I would definitely recommend Godfrey boats and Lake Coralville Marina for anyone looking for a boat. Both have treated us well.

Very well engineered, great attention to detail and quality materials make this pontoon an outstanding value. Paired with a Yamaha outboard it glides effortlessly through the water with little voice from wakes or waves.

The boat meets all my expectations, however the dealership (CH Marine, Livingston, Texas) is by far the best dealership I visited while searching for boat. The sales staff was very knowledgeable, and the service is outstanding. I would not hesitate to recommend that dealership to anyone wanting to purchase a Godfrey product.

Purchased a Godfrey Pontoon boat in 2016. We are very happy with the boat. We have a daughter with a disability and it is so east for her to board the boat because of the wide entrance door. Our boat is very well made and very pretty. We love the colors and the beautiful upholstery. We would highly recommend Godfrey Marine to anyone thinking about buying a pontoon boat or any other type of boat. Sincerely, The Chesmars

I've upgraded to a 3 pontoon Godfrey pontoon with a 200 hp Yamaha. The boat is finished very well with a rear bar with 2 stools and with the 200 hp it jumps up on plane and can cruise up to 40 mph. Love IT!

I have had Ski boats all my life and just recently purchased a 2016 SweetWater Pontoon boat. I have to say my family and I absolutely love this boat. The easy of getting on and off the boat, the handling on the water is fabulous. The open floor plan and the amount of space and storage is wonderful. I would highly recommend this boat. Happy boating..

We just had our second July 4th weekend on our Sweet Water and everyone had a great time. The boat has exceeded all our expectations and has provided great comfort for all even in not so good boating days. The 90 hp Yamaha motor has been extremely reliable and very good on gas. My first grand child Thomas loves riding in the captains chair with me and all our kids enjoy being with each other every weekend and sometimes during the week. My wife and I are making great memories on our Godfrey.

For a boat that can supply all your needs on the water this is definitely the boat. From all the options as far as sport toon to tri-toon to the full entertainment center including upgraded stereo grill in wet bar this boat is great. Definitely recommend a 150hp motor or better. Love the boat and have not had any issues with it highly recommend it to anybody that wants to have good time on the water.

Great boat with plenty of space for the family. The grill and table seem to be overkill but we use them almost every time we are on the water. They were the main reason for the purchase.

I have an aqua patio pontoon and love the layout. Everyone says the boat is well done. Seats are comfortable with plenty of room for everyone. Couple of issues with the boat during the first year and Godfrey/dealer took care of all of them. Even picked up the boat for free to service in the off season. I was nervous about making such a big purchase but it has been money well spent (thus far!).

we are extremely happy with the seat layout , especially with the 2 chaise lounge seats in the rear. It's a comfortable place even when cruising at high speed. The engine is extremely quiet and very easy starting the first time with plenty of power and torque. We have no problem pulling up a skier even with 5 or 6 people on boat.

We shopped for quite a while. We have always purchased used boats, but late model used pontoon boats were scarce and quite expensive. This time we decided to go with a new boat so that we could get just what we wanted. We wanted to stay loyal to this dealer, and we liked both the Sweetwater and Aqua Patio, but the Aqua Patio had the interior and configuration that we preferred. We felt that the dealer's price on the new boat was quite fair.

Bought our new boat from Kowaliga Marine. Could not have been a more pleasant experience. We got the boat we wanted at a reasonable price. Never owned a new boat before, and was a little reluctant to venture out. the sales representative, Chris Griffin, was honest and transparent throughout the whole process, and delivered on all promises. We love our San Pan, and can't wait for the Lake to come back up so we can get out on the Lake!
