We'll discuss the Bennington 188SL in terms of design, performance, and safety to give you an overall look at this fantastic boat. You're about to see why Bennington is the most respected name at the marina.

General Information

This section will discuss general points about the Bennington 188SL. The 188SL uses premium 8' narrow beams under the pontoon. Not only do they provide exceptional balance like wider, more traditional beams, but these reduce water resistance while allowing you to cut through water even better.

The 188SL is rated for a maximum of 10 people. With a length of 21' and exacting use of space, everyone will find it a comfortable ride without feeling squeezed in or pushed around by other passengers. There is an L-bench towards the rear and two benches at the front. All seats are upholstered in Simtex vinyl. This allows you to choose from many different colors, and the vinyl feels great when you sit on it. If this material sounds familiar, it might be because you've looked at yachts before. They use the same exact material for their seats.

The Bennington 22 SSX has two pontoons on the bottom. This gives you amazing control and ensures the boat is balanced in all situations. Considering the size and seating, this boat is rated for a maximum of 10 people. Bennington is focused on giving you a beautiful and comfortable ride. As such, all 10 people will have plenty of room to stretch their legs and the Simtex vinyl (which comes in many colors) is comfortable and gives the boat a sports car vibe of sophistication.

Aside from the L-bench being large enough for several people, it can also open to reveal large storage containers. This allows you to store drinks, clothes, food, and other luggage.

Premium aluminum side panels are used for their lightweight nature. They also give the boat increased strength and rigidity so it can weather harsh conditions with ease. On top of that, the panels have a custom finish.

As with other Bennington models, the Bennington 188SL uses a single outboard motor. Considering the size and buoyant nature of pontoons, this gives you plenty of power and ensures you can go fast and maintain an even plane at high speeds. If you're looking for an affordable boat with quality construction, then the 188SL is exactly what you're looking for.As with other Bennington models, the Bennington 188SL uses a single outboard motor.
