2010 Aqua Patio AP 240 IO Elite TT Standard Features

Knowing that the 2010 and 2009 are basically the same boat I would not buy either one. The quality and workmanship of our $60,000 plus AP Elite made me remember why pontoon boats are nothing more than plywood screwed to three round tubes. The Godfrey Marine Aqua Patio Elite looks like it was assembled by a bunch or disgruntled employees. The fit and finish were horrible and talk about loose or missing screws. There were gaps in the compartment doors, hinges that were installed crooked and defective seat latches. Everywhere you look there were sharp metal brackets that not only cut into the seats but guests arm and legs. The metal under skin is not sealed or even complete. It has gaps and does not cover the bow plywood or the port or starboard plywood underside. The upgraded stereo was a real joke. Half the speakers were never hooked up and the ones that were playing on mono only. It took a stereo shop 2 days to rewire the entire sound system and replace two blown speakers. The rear facing bench seat is going to hurt someone bad one day. We had a guest thrown on to the rear swim step when the cheesy locking assembly literally fell off causing the rear seat to open into the lounge position. The engine cover had to be fixed when it started cracking and bubbles formed in the fiberglass. The canvas bimini cover took 2 people to open but only a couple sharp brackets in its poor design to open up holes in it. The pin assembly that holds this top up takes the strength of a body builder to deploy. The rails where the fabric top are fastened is very, very flimsy and in time I see the side rails breaking off causing the top to come crashing down, much like the pop top on a soda can bending back and forth repeatedly. The steering wheel is always at a different position when driving straight which makes for an odd feel and look when cruising the lake. The under storage is actually not designed for anything you want to keep dry as the aluminum sweats causing condensation and moldy and wet items. In the shop for 7 months out of 12 months is not what I would call quality. Overall I would have to say this boat is overpriced by about $60,000.00. Take it from someone who made the factory buy it back shop for another manufacturer because Godfrey just didn’t care, But that’s an ongoing story. The happiest day of my life was seeing this shipwreck being towed away.
