Manitou has been building pontoons in Lansing Michigan since 1985. After a recent move into a 144,000 sq. foot production facility, Manitou was purchased last August 2018 by BRP.

The Legacy LT line is Manitou’s most well-appointed line of pontoons.  Featuring all fibreglass from the deck up allows for more fluid design lines over traditional aluminum panels.

The Legacy LT line features LED exterior lighting and smart-screen displays at the helm and a reclining high-back helm chair with a bolster. A top-of-the-line stereo system and matching speakers provides tunes while at anchor or underway.   Plus, there is a captain’s stand that rocks!

Available in 23 to 27 foot lengths, there are several distinct floor plans: one featuring a very cool companion console complete with windshield, and one featuring twin aft-facing reclining lounges.  Single or dual outboard engine layouts are also available.  The hybrid forward-facing tow tower is standard, a ski tow bar is optional. 

Performance is enhanced with Manitou’s patented V-Toon hull, and their Sport Handling Package (SHP) including wide positive -angle lifting strakes on all three tubes and Barracuda Nosecones on each tube to handle the wave pressure that added speeds bring.

Manitou offers a 5 year bow to stern warranty and a limited lifetime warranty on the deck, structure and pontoons.
