Year after year, the BASS BUGGY® 18 DLX continues to be the best-selling pontoon boat in the SUN TRACKER® lineup, and there are plenty of reasons why.
For one, this boat has a nimble and easy-to-tow 20’ length overall, but still provides plenty of playpen room for a crew of eight. Speaking of the playpen—inside the tall railings (great for boating with kids!), you’ll find all the features anglers want on a fishing boat, including an aerated livewell, rod holders, four fishing chairs and pre-wiring for an optional fishing package.
And there’s still room for the entire crew to relax under the Bimini top and enjoy the day!
