About The Boat
The 250 LE3 Sport presents you and your guests the opportunity to experience a more-adventurous side of luxury pontooning. For those who want more spirited outings, the three-log design and Mercury® outboard provide the performance necessary. In addition to the bow lounges, the 250 LE3 Sport offers an aft switch-back lounge for soaking up the sun through a leisurely afternoon, or spotting a wakeboarder during a spirited cruise. Extending deep into the water when deployed, the aft ladder makes it easy to re-board after a cooling swim. At 88" long, the lighted in-floor compartment is deep and long enough to stow your watersports gear, or even all the spoils of your waterfront shopping trip. 
 

What Makes It Stand Out
Sporty luxury. The 250 LE Sport does what the name implies with the aft switch-back lounge and other amenities at the stern. The sturdy boarding ladder designed for watersports and the cavernous storage set it apart. When watersports fun ends, you can store the gear in the floorboard storage and convert it to a luxury pontoon liner. 

 

About The Boat
At 27’ 5” overall and 8’ 6” wide, the 250 LE3 invites up to 14 passengers to relax in comfort on the four plush couches. Those offer a new supportive suspension system for enhanced comfort and deluxe captain chairs with adjustable armrests. Every couch features the Stow More™ seat storage system with compartments under the cushion and in the backrest. Dual bow compartments are lockable to protect valuables while you go ashore. In addition to comfort, the 253 LE3 presents sleek styling with good looking and durable Diamond Coat™ powder coating on the logs and railings. Slip off the snap less mooring cover when ready to set out on your excursion. And at the end of the day, it's easy to re-attach to protect the interior in the slip, on the road and at home. Whether navigating a busy marina or keeping a watchful eye on those in the water while tucked in a quiet cove, the rear-facing camera features a console-mounted display for easy, at-a-glance viewing. 
 

What Makes It Stand Out
The LE3 is classy, comfortable and convenient. You ride in style aboard a luxury pontoon that’s as comfortable sitting in a quiet cove as it is sprinting across the open waters.    

 

About The Boat
The 250 is the flagship of the DL3 series. Every inch of its 25’-plus deck provides a full line of luxurious comfort and convenience features. Outside, there’s a three-log performance package that provides great top-end speeds and enhanced handling for watersports and cruising. For style, the Diamond Coat™ powder coating on the logs, railings and Bimini hardware create a unique, subtly beautiful work of art. The interior was carefully designed to please, too. Four couches, each with a Stow More™ seat storage system, provide comfort and conveniently accessible storage. And the co-captain and captain chairs both swivel and recline for comfort. The aft lounge provides expansive space for lying back in supreme comfort as you enjoy spending time with family or friends. Entertain at the bow or midship lounges on the movable table with its molded-in drink holders and tall and short pedestal bases. 
 

What Makes It Stand Out
Elegant. Stylish. The 250 DLS redefines luxury. No other pontoon boat offers such plentiful seating and innovative comforts inside and eye-catching styling outside.
 

Quality Craftsmanship
The 250 LE3 Sport, 250 LE3 and 250 DL3 are luxury redefined in pontoon boats. What sets them apart from any other luxury pontoon is the quality of craftsmanship. The same attention to luxury on the outside is used to build these long-lasting boats on the inside. Think of it as finding elegance in toughness. 

The pontoons are multichambered to ensure failsafe flotation in the unlikely event of a puncture. Every log is pressure tested—twice!—for quality assurance and peace of mind. Compared to U-shaped foam-filled logs, the REGENCY pontoons are round for reduced drag in the water, a higher ride and better fuel efficiency and handling.    

REGENCY pontoon logs are 26" in diameter and warranted for the life of the boat. This size offers an optimal balance of high-riding flotation and efficient performance. The no-keel design is another standout feature of practical craftsmanship. The bulkheads separating each chamber are welded around the entire circumference of the tube, providing an airtight seal and additional structural support. That eliminates the need for an external keel that adds weight and drag.    

Heavy-duty M-shaped brackets are welded to the top of each pontoon to make the exterior one continuous piece. That provides an added level of support along the full length of the boat. Working as a system, the M-brackets function like the foundation of a house, providing a solid base for the extruded Z-bar crossmembers bolted to them.    

Z-bar crossmembers, which support the deck, extend the full width of the boat, acting like floor joists in a house. These crossmembers are bolted to the M-brackets at each end, using a total of four bolts to provide secure attachment and reduced flexing. Using computer-aided engineering, the Z-bars are variably spaced below the deck to provide maximum support where needed. Where flooring panels meet, they are securely fastened to the Z-bar and silicone sealed at the joint to prevent water intrusion.    

All the above adds up to why REGENCY luxury pontoons are backed by the industry’s leading warranty—the 10+LIFE™ warranty. That is 10 years of bow-to-stern coverage supplemented with a lifetime warranty on deck and structural components.
 

The Bottom Line
Is it possible to combine the finest luxury, sporty performance and unmatched craftsmanship in an affordable price? You bet it is. REGENCY is built by White River Marine Group, which has more than 35 years of experience building pontoons. The company builds more boats than anyone else!
