I sit here with the Bennington brochure in my hands beginning to write this review and I’m almost taken back at this thing. As pontoons get bigger, faster and fancier, they also get pricier, which can scare away a majority of the market so it was refreshing to see Bennington flirt a fine line with their SX 21 Cruise, the boat we had a chance to review with the all new Yamaha VF 150, V-Max SHO. On that note though, let me back track a bit and tell you about the S and SX lines from Bennington.
It’s 64 pages, hard spine bound, thick paper stock with glossy pictures and soft textures on the cover. Five years ago this kind of investment into a pontoon brochure would have been laughed at, but now it’s a must, showing their utter dominance of the industry.


This means you get facing wrap seating in the bow, that have forward facing loungers and L grouping in the stern along with a sun pad directly behind that where you can get the optional change area as well. They’re meant to be the bare bones segment of the line up, very simple, understated and affordable - making them very popular with Canadians - in fact the SX 21 is the best selling Bennington in Canada.
The SPS package turned the sharpest that I have seen a 22 foot pontoon turn when I put it into an aggressive full lock turn.
Inside, breathtaking images that really showcase boating, as well as offering details on their many models and options.
With fluids the VF150 weighs around 500 lbs so you still have a very manageable package should trailering be in your future. Having been at many a boat show, talking to many customers the consensus is simple - carpet is dead. But by adding the SPS package and a 150hp engine, you now have sport boat performance with pontoon boat comfort.


Pontoons are not known as the most nimble boats on the water so being able to avoid an obstacle or surprise is a great peace of mind. The high back helm chair that reclines means the captain is going to be comfy and relaxed and he might be a little more inclined to take his guests for longer rides leading me to my next point. With three people on board we topped the SX 21 out at 41mph at wide open throttle and the VF150’s rev limit of 6000rpm. It cruised in the mid 30’s without hesitating and you can slow it down to an economical cruise of 24 mph at 4000rpm and just sit back and relax.
