The Cuddy aluminium pontoon boats have eight length options in this concept. All of these provide an economical ride to your fishing spots yet still be compact enough for towing. The 650 is a perfect family boat whilst the 700 - 750 is the perfect water taxi proving to be rugged, safe and extremely stable and they give a smooth dry ride in most conditions.
