Most popular boat brand on your lake that's not a wakeboat

Around here the tritons seem to be taking off, what is popular in your area under 150k? I'm especially interested in what any lake of the ozarks or havasu folks have to say.

Thanks

Open bow's or deck boats, I'd say Sea Ray or Chaparral. With pontoon's........Bennington.

At my Canadian getaway (Lake of the Woods) - (in-laws Cabin) Lund and Alumacraft... sport boats - Mastercraft and Malibu.

On the Illinois River - Lot's of Maxxums and Four Winns. sport boats - we have them all - seeing more MC now but many G23's, A few Moombas and less Tige's.

They're getting bigger and faster on Havasu and down in the Parker area. No one likes wake board boats, they say the wakes are messing up the shoreline and bouncing their boats around while docked Most of the big go fast boaters don't think their wake is bad, go figure

2000 acre residential lake in central Minnesota. By far, the most popular boat is apparently made by a company called "Pontoon". Next most popular, in the fiberglass category, would be Larson or Glastron, both of which are made locally less than an hour from here.

Gull Lake, Nisswa, Minnesota: Cobalt and Premier Pontoons. The Premier Pontoons that are 25+ feet are rigged with 250hp - 300hp singles all day long and fast! For the last few seasons, I've seen many Premier's rigged with twin 300hp, half dozen or more of them...it's insane.

One observation I've made over the years when on numerous different lakes is, whatever they sell in town, is what you see on the water. Case in point, Nisswa Marine is a Cobalt and Premier Pontoon dealer (and Nautique). I'm always surprised that most humans will buy from the dealership that is closest to them (car or boat). Which is good, I guess, but man, we live in a huge country and there are a lot of choices out there if you don't mind a few hour drive to see "what the other guy" is selling...at a better price probably!

Cobalts, Rangers and alumicraft, Sea Rays and Pontoons. Everyone seems to be purchasing a pontoon boat!
