Hello boaters! My husband and I are looking to purchase our first pontoon boat, and was hoping to get some insight on the seating floor plan. We found a 2016 Starcraft CX21R, which has two captains chairs in the middle of the deck, with two-sweater benches in each corner of the boat. My husband says it opens up the layout, and creates more floor space. I think it creates too much space between the front and back seats... then again, it would be pretty cool to be sitting side by side as co-captains
we don't have kids (yet), and would mainly be for entertaining friemds/family.
Does anyone have experience with a layout like this? I realize it's probably a personal preference, but would love anyone's input! Pictures are attached for reference.
