About Our PlayCraft Pontoon Dealership

We are a high volume, low overhead, second-generation family-owned and operated boat dealership offering factory-direct pricing and superior service. We offer tremendous selection: a large inventory of new and used PlayCraft pontoon boats, featuring Honda marine motors.



PlayCraft pontoon boats are built locally, custom-designed and engineered for the rough, ocean-like waters of the Lake of the Ozarks. No other product on the market compares to its quality and endurance. Each custom-built boat we sell comes off the line worthy of your hard-earned dollar and ready to provide well-deserved boating enjoyment and stellar performance. We are PlayCraft's foremost dealer, proud to represent their line since before it was even PlayCraft. See what's available today at the On The Water Showroom.

recommends Honda four-stroke outboard motors because they're the most fuel-efficient and dependable on the market. We are also vendors for B & M or BEAR trailers, and POLY LIFT or EconoLIFT boat lifts.


To put it simply, our service can't be beat. We have factory-trained technicians who get in, get their hands dirty, and get it done right the first time... efficient, hard-working guys who really know their stuff and can take care of you. We handle Honda warranty work, repair of any brand, and customer maintenance and storage for any boat we sell.

For emergencies or immediate service, contact our Service Department directly, but be sure to identify yourself as a "Pope Boat Sales Preferred Customer."

Unlike the competition, POPE boats really hold their value. See what's available today.

 We always have good, used PlayCrafts available for resale. 

For more used boats, send an email with your NAME and PHONE NUMBER in the subject line, describing your preferences. If we
don't have what you're looking for, we'll happily direct you to someone who does. We are well-connected in the boating community and have "inside" resources for boat brokerage deals not available elsewhere.


We sell only top quality goods. We know boats, and we specialize in helping folks like you find the exact boat of your dreams. We invite you to stop by see us and take a test ride, knowing for certain that you won't be 'taken for a ride.' Instead, we'll offer you an affordable reality, based on your preferences and our availability. We are "old school" and frankly, we really don't expect you to buy a boat on the internet. We want you to shake hands with us, look us right in the eye, and be completely satisfied with your purchase. We treat our customers like dear friends.

About Our Reputation


Read what our customers have to say about us:

"There are two good reasons why Pope Boat Sales has been in business as long as they have: SERVICE and INTEGRITY. My husband and I recently bought our first boat. It was originally purchased from Pope Boat Sales, so we went there to talk service. Service is what we got --The BEST ever! In a day where most businesses just care about the sale or the almighty dollar, Ted and Mary went above and beyond to welcome us. They took us under their wings and showed us everything from how to operate the boat, operate a lift, tie up the boat, docking tips and when to service it. We are close to retirement age and I'm not sure we have ever received this kind of service elsewhere. We will be customers for life!"
~ Frank and Linda Jennings

"Ted is the nicest guy in the world, really knows his stuff, and is always pleasant and easy to deal with. He'll take care of you."

"The Popes are good people. It's refreshing to deal with them because their pricing is fair, and they consistently go above and beyond in their service after the sale, without overcharging. They are genuine and honest, which is pretty rare to find in this day and age."

"Our family has done business with the Pope family for over 40 years. We've bought seven boats during that time and every transaction has been smooth. Their service after the sale is phenomenal: you never, ever have to worry. They do what they promise and they treat you right. Really, I can't say anything bad. That in itself says a lot about the kind of people they are."
