LANSING, Mich. – On May 31, Triton Industries was issued a United States patent for its V-toon-style pontoon boat.
The design is featured in every triple hull currently being produced under its Manitou brand name.
“Since the hull’s debut in the 2005 model year, the company has worked diligently to secure a broad patent to protect this unique product,” Triton said in a release. “This nearly six year effort has finally bore fruit.”
Within the Manitou lineup, all SHP models and all VP models are covered under this patent. The SHP models are the higher performing hulls and can achieve speeds over 50 mph. The VP models are limited to 150 hp and achieve speeds above 40 mph.
