    need advice on buying 20-24' pontoon party boat

    I am looking for a pre-owned 20-24 pontoon boat with 90 hp engine. Not many with that HP. I have been told by a few individuals that I want a 90 HP engine or the party boat will go slow with max number of people. Well the question is how slow? I have only owned sail boats so to me slow is 2-5 mph. Any advice on buying a pre-owned party pontoon boat will be appreciated. Willing to spend up to $20,000. Not interested in bass fishing pontoon boat. Want a boat with nice comfortable seating for the wives.

    I need advice on who to purchase and what to check for. My friend bought one and found out that the taxes of $600 plus penalties had not been paid so he had to pay them. Stuff like that is important to know.

    90hp seems low/mid range, I've seen them with 250hp around here. Now why does one need a motor that size on a floating dock basically.
    One gets what they pay for and in boating as you probably know. BOAT basically means "Bring Out Another Thousand"
    I would get the motor checked over of any used vessel, regardless. Always burn a good fuel-low grades have more bio/mix which gums them up.
    The online estate sales have had a few nice ones sell over the yrs-MaxSold runs a tight ship.
