Kennedy Boats have been built by the “Kennedy Family” since 1964.


The 1700 Sundeck Model pontoon boat offers many features and performance not normally seen in the "Compact Pontoon" market.

The SUNDECK model pontoon boat features a full-width rear sundeck area which is perfect for sun tanning. This soft sun tanning area measures over 6-feet in overall width so anyone who wants to kick back and enjoy a warm sunny day can do so. The sundeck opens to reveal ample storage beneath for fuel tanks and other storage and also allows easy access to the motor compartment.

The pontoon boat features a large L-Shaped rear lounge seating area with a moveable cocktail table that can be placed at the rear or front seating areas. The standard Sundeck model features (2) swivel fishing seats in the front. These seats can be replaced with (2) optional front lounge seats with armrests if you prefer a different layout. All of the bench seating features plastic seat cores and full storage access inside the seats.

The Sundeck Model features a 78-inch beam for conveniences in maneuverability both on the water and on the trailer. Once behind the helm, you will quickly notice how easy it is to drive this compact pontoon boat when on the lake and when returning to the dockside.

You will be please when you experience the excellent performance provided by the 23-inch octagonally-shaped pontoon floats. With over 30 square feet of planning surface underneath, the "flat-bottomed" float design provides quicker planning and a shallower draft than other competitive brands with round floats. The pontoon floats also offer the safety of a multiple chamber design which features a total of six sealed chambers and individual pressure venting to each chamber.

This pontoon boat performs well with 5 horsepower minimum thru 40 horsepower maximum motor size. Or if you lake is restrictive to gas engines your dealer can equip this model with electric power to make this the ideal electric pontoon boat.

Add the convenience of the Custom-Roller style pontoon trailer, and you can easily transport this pontoon boat to any lake you choose! Launching and loading is simple with the trailers unique roller design and self -centering guide-bunk system. Stability on the roadway is excellent due to the trailers wide track axle design.
