The Best Inflatable Pontoons in Australia 2022

One of the many good things about living in Australia is being surrounded by beautiful beaches, rivers, and lakes. It’s filled with water sports and activities that can be enjoyed by people of all ages.

It is also because of the surge in these water activities that a lot have turned to venture into manufacturing water sports accessories, boating gear and equipment, and water inflatables.

There is a myriad of choices when it comes to water sports accessories, and one is making waves for its variety and innovation—the inflatable pontoon!

 

What is an Inflatable Pontoon?

By definition, a pontoon is a “flat-bottomed boat or hollow metal cylinder used with others to support a temporary bridge or floating landing stage”. An inflatable pontoon also does all of these, only that they are, well, inflated with air.

Inflatable pontoons can be used to add buoyancy to a structure, hence the innovation of inflatable pontoon boats. There are different types of inflatable pontoon boats; frameless, framed, motorized, or propelled. These inflatable pontoon boats can be ridden across beaches, lakes, or rivers.

Another use of inflatable pontoons is as inflatable decks or docks. In this article, we will take a look at this type, and how the company Big Sky Innovations pioneered a new docking system that is centered on inflatable pontoons.

Inflatable Pontoons by Big Sky Innovations

Pontoons as we know them are used to add buoyancy to boats, and other watercraft. However, Big Sky Innovations had other things in mind. Through their creativity and continuous innovations, they were able to create the now-famous “Inflatable Pontoons”.

These inflatable pontoons are unlike the usual ones that you see on inflatable boats—they are made so you can “walk on water”.

It all started when founders (and husband-and-wife) Gavin and Lydia found it inconvenient to get into their boats all muddy and scratching their boat’s hull. To avoid soiling their boat, Gavin had to carry Lydia in, and soon, they were also doing it for family and friends.

These minor inconveniences then lead to an innovation that is now enjoyed by many in the Australian boating community. Their inflatable pontoons come in different shapes and sizes and are introduced to the world as parts of a new inflatable docking system.

Big Sky Innovations was founded in 2012 and is celebrating 10 years in the industry this year. In the span of a decade, they were able to produce inflatable pontoons that are portable, heavy-duty, and can be used in any body of water.

Their Inflatable Pontoons for sale are made from PVC horsetail material and can be inflated and assembled within 3-4 minutes. They currently have five types of inflatable pontoons available, from decks to walkways, and are continuously working on innovations.

Designed on the Gold Coast, Big Sky Innovations’ inflatable pontoon structures are used not only by hobbyists but also by sporting associations all over the world, and marine biologists working on the restoration of the Great Barrier Reef.

With a clientele as prominent as these, Big Sky Innovations is, without a doubt, committed to delivering inflatable pontoons that are user-friendly, durable, and worth investing in!
