Shop for Sun Tracker boat parts and accessories

Sun Tracker is the best-selling line of pontoon boats in the world. Part of the Bass Pro Group, Sun Tracker is located in Springfield, MO and boasts of more than 30 years experience in the industry. The company manufactures approximately 20 pontoon models that range from smaller, day-trip versions for families or small groups, to boats over 30 feet long that can house several people comfortably, overnight. Some plush models have features—such as a sun roof atop the cabin—that few other pontoon lines provide. The company advertises that its boats are a pleasing combination of very plush seating, luxurious comfort-oriented amenities, and streamlined styling, accompanied by modern and functional fishing features.

Because it’s a member of the Bass Pro Group of companies, Sun Tracker has an extensive network of over 50 Bass Pro Shop dealers spread throughout America, as well as affiliated companies that it regularly negotiates with to provide components and services to Sun Tracker customers. Most owners agree that Sun Tracker boats offer great overall comfort and roominess.

Pricing

Sun Tracker's website states that the company has a "no haggle, no hassle" pricing policy. According to the site, the "no haggle, no hassle prices are honored nationwide and set at 'after negotiation' levels to ensure you always get the best price…." Prices vary widely, depending on the model. For example, used 2009 Party Cruiser boats can range around $30,000 while used boats in the Bass Buggy line can be as low as half that. New 2010 boats are in the $50,000 range for the Party Cruiser line, while the Bass Buggy ranges around $13,000.
