ypress Cay knows that people go pontooning for different reasons: Fishing or cruising, with many guests or few. And their needs differ, from seating configurations to bimini coverage. Enter Cypress Cay’s largest offering in its Cabana line: The Cabana 240. Built and styled for relaxation with family and friends, the Cabana 240 offers choices for you to maximize your boating experiences. For fishing there are two different floor plans, both of which include aft deck fishing chairs, and one configuration offers forward fishing chairs. To please the cruisers, Cypress Cay offers the standard cruise floorplan with aft L-shaped seating and sunpad. A dual lounger floorplan is available with additional furniture options, including dual helm seats and club chair to further customize your onboard space and fit your cruising style. The Cabana 240 comes standard with 10-foot bimini, 16-inch center-mounted crossmembers, aft swim deck, stereo with CD/ MP3 and dual speakers, and courtesy lights. Step it up a notch with options such as docking lights, 12-foot bimini, lighting package, battery charger, Porta Potti, and other upgrades.
Cypress Cay Cabana 240 For fishing enthusiasts, popular options include a 25-quart cooler, trolling motor, saltwater package, depthsounder, rod storage, 12-foot bimini, and more. You can also add a second bimini and full enclosure to make the 240 a weekender. Go ahead and stay out on the lake!
