I know what you are thinking: there is no way that big pontoon boat can be easy to pedal. Well, Ahlstrand Marine has finally answered your question. Watch the video to see whether or not the Paddle Qwest Pedal Pontoon boat truly is the easiest pedal boat to operate.
In the video below you will get to see the evolution of the Paddle Qwest from when it first started in 2009 up until today. In 2008, Ahlstrand Marine came up with the idea of a pontoon boat you could pedal and presented it to the manufacturer of a pontoon boat line they already carried. In 2009, a prototype was built and the very first Paddle Qwest was delivered to Ahlstrand Marine. Over the years we have worked closely with the manufacturer and have made changes that have helped to make the Paddle Qwest what it is today (for more information on how it all got started click on the article link at the bottom of this page).
This is the 10 person 2018 Paddle Qwest 618 Sport Cruise Pedal Pontoon Boat. Whether you want to soak up the sun or catch a few fish, this pedal pontoon boat can do it all with plenty of room to spare.
