In 1966, innovation which birthed Veranda Luxury Pontoons was, quite fittingly, studied, learned, and refined within an old school house located in the rural community of Friendship, Arkansas. It was from these prophetic beginnings Xpress Boats, sister company to Veranda, championed and established the first series of the “Original” all-welded boat manufacturing processes. In the subsequent 54 years, three generations of the founding family have continued to flourish, revolutionize, and invest in creating and applying these technologies for solving the inherent problem of rotting wood decks which has plagued the pontoon industry. After successfully patenting our Patented All-Aluminum All-Welded Interlocking Deck System, Veranda Luxury Pontoons began crafting the finest engineered pontoons in the luxury pontoons industry in 2006. With the strength and security of the patented deck system combined with the ultimate in styling and luxury, owners of Veranda Luxury Pontoons never have to choose between exhilarating performance and soothing relaxation.
