    Default Wanted - 8m pontoon barge boat

    I'm in the market for a 8 to 9m pontoon barge boat if anyone know of one for sale.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Hercules - nice barge.

    I'm looking for something cheaper that does not burn me when I see it standing out in the sun.
    We have a boat in a boat locker but it's a pain to get out and launch each time.

    I want an older barge that I can keep tied to our jetty 24/7 and ready to go in under 10 minutes, either for a slow evening cruise or to go fishing whenever I feel like it.
    Also, I'd like something shorter and more manoeuvrable that the one in the photo.

    A mate of mine builds them from very simple to very expensive if you have a price in mind let me know and we are in the boating game so have a few used ones come through now and again

    I also have a bass boat that I've stopped using because I've had my days of standing almost all day on a flat deck, in the sun, no shelter.

    So the craft shown is not what I'm looking for, thanks.
    It will also offer a few challenges for our evening cruises with four or six on board.

    Anyone interested in a bass boat?

    Thanks.
    Towards the end of last year, there was a "pontoon barge" sitting on a trailer on a piece of empty land next to the Ithala Bank building in the Point Development area in Durban with a For Sale sign on it.

    I will need to drive past this week and have a look to see if it is still there.

    On this one they use a gazebo and some loose chairs and coolboxes. You can install chairs as you feel and construct a shade structure to you requirements. This one is for cruising only.
