South Bay Performance
Effortless Steering, Increased Stability, Enhanced Fuel Efficiency & Tighter Radius Turns.

South Bay has engineered a longer nose cone to enhance the speed of your pontoon, reduce the fuel consumption and provide you with a more comfortable ride. Our lifting strakes are placed on the inside of the outer tubes which allows for quicker planing, better maneuverability and a tighter turning radius.


South Bay's roll formed aluminum underdeck performance skin manages water and air flow providing unparalleled performance and agility. South Bay's Trifecta package guarantees family fun - skiing, tubing, wakeboarding - there are no limits!

Performance Done Right

At South Bay we didn't invent precision, we didn't invent power, we didn't invent performance. We just put them together better than anyone else.
