Barletta Boats Floorplans (Which is Best for You?)
If you’re familiar with buying recreational boats, you know that some pontoon brands have many (oftentimes, too many) options when it comes to floorplans that they offer.
At Barletta, we try to limit the number of options you have to sift through by crafting unique and versatile floorplans. I am here to help you understand what makes these floorplans unique from others.
First, it’s good to acknowledge that not every Barletta series will have the same floorplan offering. Each series has specific layouts although there is quite a bit of overlap between the entire lineups.
Every Barletta is marked with a model designator that represents the floorplan. Each brand does this and these designators become an entire language of their own. This article will help you dissect that code and apply it to the different Barletta series.
Before we get into the details of the different floorplans, let’s discuss the different letters in the floorplan designator. Each letter represents a different aspect of the layout of the boat. Here’s a list of the acronyms Barletta uses and their meaning.
U - Ultra-Lounge
UE - Ultra-Entertainer
Q - Quad-Lounge
SS - Sports Stern
M - Meridian-Lounge
CC - Cast ‘n’ Cruise
C - Co-captains Chair
A - Arch
As you can see, each letter represents a particular aspect of the layout of the boat. Now that you know what the letters stand for, let’s get into the specifics of each floorplan.
The Ultra-Lounge refers to the big lounge towards the stern of the boat. The Ultra-Lounge option is perfect for those who enjoy layout out in the sun but it’s also useful for cruising. That’s because it is multi-functional in that it can be manipulated into several different seating positions so that you can sit or lay comfortably in whichever direction you’d like.
The seats can be propped up so that you are able to sit facing forwards or rear-facing. It can also turn into a lounger in both directions and a full-on daybed.
This setup is also great for time spent at the sandbar or anchored in the middle of the lake. It is so comfortable you could even take a nap if you’d like. The Ultra-Lounge is offered in all five series which are: Aria, Cabrio, Corsa, Lusso, and Reserve.
Here are a few photos to show the different ways the Ultra-lounge can be positioned:

The Ultra-Entertainer floorplan is the Ultra-Lounge model with a bar-height table and chairs added in. The Ultra-Entertainer floorplan is great for people looking to entertain guests on their boat. You are able to sit at the bar table with friends and family to enjoy snacks, drinks, and game night, you name it.
Since it is paired with a slightly smaller Ultra-Lounge, you get the best of both worlds with this floorplan. You are able to enjoy a beautiful table with stationary stools and a multi-functional swing bench seat as well as the comfortable Ultra-Lounge that everyone knows and loves.
The Ultra-Entertainer is offered in three of the five series being: Cabrio, Corsa, and Lusso. Here are some photos of this layout:
The Quad-Lounge is a more traditional pontoon layout that’s been around for a while. The rails wrap around the rear of the boat hugging the furniture. It has chaise-lounges that are rear-facing on the stern and a walkthrough path between.
There are also chaise-lounges on the front of the boat mirroring the stern. This floorplan is great for families and friends that will often have a group out on the boat together. Everyone can have a chaise lounge that makes for a comfortable ride out on the water.
The layout is also favorable for families or those with animals. The way the rails wrap around the front and back of the boat help keep wandering kids and pets inside. There is also a gate between both the front and rear lounges.
The Quad-Lounge is offered in four of the five series being: Aria, Cabrio, Corsa, and Lusso.
Here are a few photos of the Quad-Lounge to show what it looks like:
Sports Stern (SS)
The Sports Stern is a floorplan that is only available within the Quad-Lounge offerings in the Corsa and Lusso models, let me explain. Every Lusso Quad-Lounge floorplan is designed with the Sports Stern standard. This is optional on Corsa Quad-Lounges.
This is because instead of wrapping the rail completely around the boat, the rear of the seats is exposed. The stern is intentionally designed with a sporty aesthetic and accentuates the speakers on the stern.
This is a great option for boaters who love watersports. These speakers on the rear of the stern chaise lounges face whoever is skiing or wakeboarding behind the boat. It is also great for playing music at the sandbar with everyone hanging out in the water.
The Sports Stern has a very unique look to it. Check out some images below to see what it would look like if you were to decide this is something you’re interested in.
The Meridian-Lounge floorplan is Barletta’s newest and most innovative floorplan to date. It’s the intersection of the Ultra-Lounge and the Quad-Lounge layouts. If you like certain aspects of both, you may need to consider the Meridian-Lounge for your next boat.
The seats in the stern of the boat are able to be configured in different ways so that you can sit or lounge in whichever direction is comfortable for you. The seats can also lay totally flat for optimal relaxation.
This floorplan also features a table in the stern of the boat between the chaise lounges that can flip up for easy maneuverability around the boat. No longer do you have to crawl and squeeze around the tables on the boat.
The Meridian-Lounge is offered in the Reserve and Lusso series. Here are a few pictures of this innovative floorplan:
I’m sure you can guess what kind of features are found on the Cast-N-Cruise. With this floorplan, you’ll find a fishing center with tackle trays and rod holders. You’ll also find a large, aerated live well on the starboard side of the boat.
This is a pontoon boat that’s made for fishing. For those interested in the comfortability of a pontoon with all the amenities needed to fish, this may be the perfect combination for you.
There are two captain’s chairs on each side of the stern that swivel for maximum casting ability. Equally as comfy, the chaise lounges in the bow of the boat are perfect for lounging when not fishing.
The Cast-N-Cruise is offered only in the Cabrio series. Here are a few photos of this unique floorplan:
Co-Captain’s Chair (C)
Although this is not a floorplan on its own, it’s important to talk about the co-captain chair. Most, not all, floorplans come with the option to get a co-captain's chair in place of the port chaise. This is a great option for couples who are often the only ones on the boat together. They can sit side-by-side which makes conversation very comfortable.
You will know which models offer this option if there’s a “C” added to the model designator. For example, a Lusso 25UC is the Ultra-Lounge model with the addition of the co-captain’s chair.
This is another model designator that is not a model on its own. The “A” mixed into the acronym signifies that the model has an arch. These models can only be found in the Corsa and Lusso series. The Barletta arch is comparable to a tower that is typically found on a tow boat.
Arches are great for anyone looking for a sporty yet elegant look. They are also perfect if you want to do a lot of wakeboarding behind your pontoon. An arch will replace the standard bimini found on Barletta's and cannot be added after the boat is built as it’s considered part of the structure of the boat.
Check out these images of both Corsa and Lusso Arches. The two do have slight differences because of the difference in series.
