Legend Boats, headquartered in Whitefish, Ontario (near Sudbury), describes its 2015 Splash series of four pontoon boats as, “Simple, affordable fun.
The Splash and its upgraded sister Splash Plus, subject of this review, are the smallest of eighteen models of pontoon boats up to twenty-six feet in five series offered by Legend for 2015. The Splash Plus, with its eight foot beam, offers essentially a similar interior layout and amenities as larger pontoon boats but simply on a smaller scale.
All seating and backrests are well padded and the starboard bow lounge also has a padded backrest on the forward face of the driver’s helm to facilitate lounging.
All furniture is of composite construction with Legend’s Ultra-Flow ventilation feature and all furniture has hinged-lid storage under the seat bottoms. The Splash Plus rides on twin 23-inch diameter .080 gauge pontoons each with three separate internal pressurized sections and full-length V-keels.
Other notable standard equipment on the Splash Plus includes a bimini top and boarding ladder.
Legend Boats, a Canadian company, offers nineteen models of aluminum utility, all purpose fishing, and fish, cruise and ski boats from over thirteen feet to almost twenty feet in both riveted and welded hull construction.
The 16 Xcalibur is part of the Fish, Cruise and Ski series utilizing extra thick .100 gauge two piece welded aluminum hull construction with cast aluminum bow and corner caps and multiple bow ribs and full-length interior bottom ribs for added strength plus injected and level foam flotation for safety.
A molded dash features full standard chrome-bezeled instrumentation and the curved, centre walk-thru windshield is high-profile for added foul weather protection. Legend Boats, officially launched in 1987, is a Canadian company headquartered in Whitefish, Ontario near Sudbury and offers twenty models of pontoon boats for 2013 in five series from twenty to twenty-seven feet. In describing the market for this new for 2013 Luxura series, Legend says, “You enjoy modern, sleek design.


The starboard side driver and port side passenger are each treated to a high-back reclining chair with headrest, armrests, and fore and aft slider adjustment.
A portable cooler is always at hand and neatly stored in a dedicated compartment below the helm. With only 121 hours, this well kept package will not only be a great fishing and recreation boat, but will last for a very long time.
Including these eighteen pontoon boat models, Legend offers a total of forty-two models of full windshield (dual console) and side console riveted and welded aluminum fishing boats plus utility boats.
For example, there are three entry gates; centre bow, portside, plus at the starboard stern. Between these two bow lounges is a floor-mounted removable woodgrain table with integrated drink holders. Notable optional features include a Legend Glide-On pontoon trailer, a ¾ enclosure which consists of slanted fore and aft curtains plus side curtains providing all-round visibility and protection, a stainless steel Napoleon marine grill, and even a mooring package and a safety package.
Simply fold the converta-bench rear seat back to extend the rear casting platform and remove the two high-back swivel helm buckets and insert them in the receivers located on this rear deck and on the bow platform.
All Legend full windshield boats come standard equipped with full enclosure stand-up foul weather top with side and aft curtains, bow cover and storage boot. Additional warranty includes lifetime floor and deck, 5-year trailer frame, 5-year canvas and carpet, and 3-year vinyl floor and upholstery.
Legend offers another twenty-five models of aluminum fishing and Jon boats in four series ranging from twelve to twenty feet. There are port and starboard bow lounges with rounded forward corners albeit the portside lounge is a single seater and the starboard lounge a two seater.


Aft of the portside entry gate is an L-shaped lounge which extends back and across the transom ahead of the motor well and over to the stern entry gate. Several optional upgrading Mercury® power choices are available up to the rated maximum horsepower of 60. An aerated 30-gallon bow livewell with integrated bait bucket is standard as is pre-wiring for an electric trolling motor. Legend boats are pre-packaged with Mercury outboard motors, in this case a Mercury 50 ELPTO, and a custom Glide-on trailer.
You never sacrifice quality or comfort for design, but you know how rare it is to find something that has it all. It also recommends the Mercury 60 ELPT EFI 4-Stroke BF as the most popular choice of motors for this boat for a $7,099.
Behind this lounge and extending over the motor well is a raised single-width hinged sunpad with lots of additional storage below including a dedicated central spot for the portable gas tank.
Each of these four lounges has two separated storage compartments beneath the seat cushion plus an additional storage cabinet below the angled headrest.
