Harris FloteBote

“Quality that lasts” is the founding philosophy of Harris FloteBote. Founded in 1957 as Harris Manufacturing by brothers Ernie and Pete Harris, the company produced the world’s first pontoon boats to be manufactured on an assembly line. Others firsts would follow, including the adoption of roto-molded furniture bases, now an industry standard, along with aluminum transoms and interlocking deck systems. Today, Harris FloteBote offers models aimed at all price points, and is heralded for their performance pontoon configurations, which give a pontoon boat aggressive handling rivaling fiberglass V-hulls.
