Hotwoods Aluma Sport 716

16' PERSONAL PONTOON BOAT

Dealer's welcome

When you call Hotwood's, you get a live voice immediately that is ready to help with any situation, right down to the best way possible to deliver your purchase and save you anyway we can and build a working relationship that will last for years.

       Check out the 716 Aluma Sport pontoon boat we introduced for the first time in early 2018. With 1,600 lbs. of capacity and a 25 hp rating, you will have the ability to carry more weight and move across the lake at faster speeds to get to those favorite fishing holes or locations across the water.   ( Boat above is shown with optional canopy top, seating and 25 hp. outboard motor.)     This 7' wide x 16' long all aluminum pontoon boat is packed with ( 6 ) 12" floats that by far give it the most stable platform in the industry for a boat this size. Pontoons are .090 thick aluminum, with .100 thickness on cones and end caps.( That is the heaviest in the industry ) The 716 Aluma Sport weighs 875 lbs, with the trailer weighing 620 lbs. for a combined pulling weight of 1,495 lbs. That makes it very easy to pull with the lightest pickup or like vehicle on the road.    We are personally involved with every boat we have ever designed or manufactured, and after 2 years in development, we can say, this boat is incredible when it comes to maneuverability and stability. We have just never seen anything like it   on the water. This craft is literally like walking around on your patio.     Quality, you need not question the construction of this boat, like all our pontoon boats and docks we manufacture, there is nothing to compare them to. The 716 Aluma Sport is manufactured completely of aluminum with stainless steel hardware. We tell people everyday they could bury this boat, dig it up 20 years later and go boating.     NOTE:    We get asked regularly if that aluminum floor is going to get hot and be uncomfortable to walk on with bare feet. Aluminum is 11 degrees cooler than wood in the same sun light, as it reflects the heat instead of absorbing it. Also, after you have owned this craft a few months that floor will patina, taking that shine out of the aluminum making it absolutely as cool as anything out there to walk on.

716 Aluma Sport is shown on the optional Shoreland'r galvanized trailer above, that has been customized to fit this boat with load guides and front step ladder. This trailer makes pulling your 716 down the road a breeze, as in most cases you will hardly know you are towing anything. Combined towing weight is 1,495 pounds. You can purchase your 716 with or without a trailer as shown. ( Boat above is shown with 20" handrails on the front and 34" on the rear and standard bench seat.)

  716 Aluma Sport shown with optional seating placed to the customers request. When it comes to seat options, we can accommodate any situation with 4 seats as shown, 3 down the middle or any configuration the customer may need. We also offer other styles of seats, not shown above.

  Through tongue weight testing on the 716 Aluma Sport and Shoreland'r trailer, we have it right where we want it at 200 pounds on the ball. This is the perfect weight as it is not to much and it will not bounce on the ball while traveling down the road.

                                                        Heavy Duty Rear Motor Mount    Heavy duty motor mount with 12 degree angle is rated to accept electric trolling motors and any gas powered outboard up to 25 hp. Heavy duty 3/8" stainless steel tie down u-bolts are located on each side of the motor mount to assure secure hold downs for   travel.    As you can see in this close up of the floor, all floor planking has been knurled, which gives it a grip to walk on to help assure safe footing when feet may be wet or just any regular moving around on the deck of the boat. This is in no way uncomfortable to the bare foot. ( this same process is done to all our Aluma Sport models. )

 Rear view of 716 Aluma Sport on the trailer. We designed this boat with extended flotation for maximum bouancy to accommodate the 25 horse power motor. However, like all of our pontoon models, it does not take a 25 hp motor to move it across the water comfortably with all its flotation. A motor as small as a 5 hp can move this craft with ease.

Keep in mind, this craft like all our other models will float in less water than a prop will run in due to its low center of gravity and multiple floats that give it the ultimate in bouncy for a boat this size. 

Being able to float in 10" or less water, makes it the ultimate platform to fish those hard to get to fishing holes. ( Do not mistake the 10" for draft ) Draft on this craft will vary depending upon how you have your boat loaded.
