How to Measure Pontoon Boat for a Cover

how to measure your pontoon for pontoon boat covers.

Don’t always rely on the manufacturer’s advertised length; you’ll want to measure it yourself to get the most accurate length for the proper size cover.

You will need:

  • Tape measure up to 50 feet
  • Paper and pencil to write the measurements down
  • A helper to hold one end of the tape measure

Step 1.

Measure from the front of the pontoon to the rear in the straightest line possible. Make sure to include anything that sticks out past the end like a ladder. This is your beam length.

Step 2.

Measure the width of the pontoon, typically from one side to the opposite side. This is your beam width.

And that’s it! It’s always preferred to have a cover fit more snug than too loose, which can be susceptible to wind flapping.
