    Where ? where ? Where do i get a "setup" for 1/10 price of building.


    Most any 30 ft pontoon boat should carry the weights you consider.

    Older ones are in the $2000 range with some sort of outboard .

    A lightweight deck replacement would be a good start to a lightweight almost no buck cruiser.

    Still cant find any in USA, let alone Australia. Please send me a link 30ft pontoons for $2000

    18' 'as is' aluminium pontoon 'Parti Kraft' for $1800 is the closest in can find online. That doesn't come anywhere near the displacement and power performance of a ~30ft plywood hull, and you still have to add all the expensive 'livingry' in between the hulls.
