By Amanda ComissionAfter more than 15 years in the pontoon game. the name Bennington has become synonymous with quality. The 2575 QCW is one of 52 floor plans boaters can customize for the perfect fit.
At the rear, two aft-facing lounges are built for durability and comfort with Bennington’s exclusive Icon Soft-Touch Upholstery, which features three self-draining channels. There’s storage underneath one and under the other, a popup privacy shelter for changing on the fly.
Midship, the pure-comfort helm recliner can be upgraded to an extra-wide recliner seat. Across the way, there’s a companion portside lounge with removable table. The lounge’s armrest with cup holder folds down, while the headrest folds up to reveal additional storage.

The wide helm console with footrest keeps the switches ready at hand, with an optional remote stereo pad above, and features an upgraded deluxe teak wheel. The three-gauge dash is slightly set back for a better view, as is the optional GPS.
Inside the console base, the main stereo controls are tucked away with more storage available for gear you may want quick and easy access to. More of the Icon Soft-Touch Upholstery covers the two bow lounges, which are connected with an add-on bow gate seat to create a massive U-shaped seating area up front for entertaining a crowd up to 15. Other furniture add-ons include an ottoman with cooler and coffee table.
There are portable drink holders with teak trim and all the seats hide storage underneath. And because you can never have enough storage, there’s even more space in the headrests. Both lounges also have fold down armrests with drink holders. 
All of this rides on triple ’toons that offer better handling and stability. Equipped with a 200-hp Yamaha outboard, the boat cruises comfortably at 16 mph and 21 mph, at 3000 rpm and 3500 rpm respectively, and tops out at 32 mph at 4600 rpm.
From bow to stern, the Bennington 2575 QCW serves up comfort -- with plenty of options to make it your ideal match.
