Steve Deese, founder and president of Encore Boat Builders, began in the retail business and produced astonishing results, becoming one of the largest pontoon dealers in the country. Through that success, he understands what the customer is looking for: value and quality. With over 15 years of experience as a dealer and manufacturer, Steve’s goal is to establish retail partners throughout the United States and Canada and to become the largest, most respected pontoon manufacturer in the boating industry.

The manufacturing plant is located in Lexington, South Carolina. Encore Boat Builders makes its own components, such as furniture, tubes and railings. This helps to ensure quality control while saving time and money; thus keeping the costs down for our customers. We employ a group of skilled, hard-working employees who pride themselves in creating a great product every day. The craftsmanship they provide to building our boats is second to none.

Our company has a large customer base and dedicated dealers that specialize in our pontoons. Our boats are easy to operate, reasonably priced, include a limited express warranty, and come with great standard features such as: MP3 capable sound systems, wheelchair accessible gates and custom fiberglass consoles.
