Bennington Design and Construction

Under Deck Wave Shield: Deflects water from the bottom of the deck, which reduces “surging” and enhances the soft, quiet ride in rough water.

Lifting Strakes: Add bow lift, which increases handling across choppy water and improves speed as much as 4.8 miles per hour, depending on engine selection. For optimum performance, lifting strakes are recommended for engines rated 115hp or greater and for boats exceeding 30 mph. Lifting strakes are recommended for 90hp or greater on boats with twin elliptical pontoons.

SeaStar® Hydraulic Steering: Eases steering effort with higher horsepower engines. Expect two-handed handling in hard turns. Recommended for engines rated 115hp or greater.

Power-Assist Hydraulic Steering: Power-assist steering is powered by an electronically controlled hydraulic pump connected to the SeaStar® system. The electric pump “does the work for you” so the driver can expect incredible handling and turning with little effort. Recommended for engines rated 150hp or greater.
