Just imagine you and your friends and family are casting off for a fun and leisurely boating adventure. You've pulled your pontoon easily out of the garage this morning (REALLY!!), and you've trailered it like a champ to the ramp via your highly efficient monohull (YES, monohull!) trailer. As your crew prepares to board at the dock, they stare in awe as your nifty pontoon expands on command, right in front of their eyes!

The Island Boats 180 and 220 are the only two boats in the world with the revolutionary R & E Slide, a patent pending engineering marvel that allows the floor of these boats to retract or expand in less than two minutes. In the retracted position, the boats store and trailer just like a monohull. But when you expand, you create a boat of awesome proportions, ideal for entertaining and relaxation!

Everyone climbs aboard and relaxes in deluxe comfort as the Island Boats adventure continues! With abundant seating and storage throughout, plus two large kidney-shaped tables, there's plenty of room for sun lounging, storing your water toys, cruising, grilling, restaurant hopping and more! Beaching is a breeze with three doors – one forward, aft and portside.
