Bennington and Playbouy are the 2 that come to mind. I used to work at a marina that primarly should them. From being around pontoons, the main piece of advice is to get one with the largest diameter pontoons available. This will allow you to carry more people safer and drier! The new tri-toons are nice as well.

You won't find a better built pontoon. Now if it is faster that your friend wants, he should consider this....

A few of my friends at LOTO have Play Craft
2600 Powertoon extreme's ( 3 logger)
w/ 225 Honda's.

They get around real well down there.

The Benningtons are nice too.

I own a Bennigton and would highly reccomend them. They are a quality boat with nice fit and finish to them for a reasonable price.
