An on-board changing room can be a wonderful way to give your guests some privacy for when they need to get dressed. But since most of these changing rooms use light materials, it’s not uncommon for damage to occur. In that case, it might be high time for a pontoon changing room replacement, or for a brand new boat feature all together.
Replacements for Pontoon Changing Rooms
If your pontoon boat came with a changing room, then the manufacturer probably has a few after-sales parts you can buy to replace any damaged pieces on your changing room. They sell all sorts of replacement parts like curtains, rods, hooks - you name it. But then again, since they’re coming from the manufacturer, they’re probably going to cost a fortune.
For boat owners who have a lot of green to spare, and those who want to make sure that everything matches, then there might not be any other option than approaching the manufacturer and asking for a part. But if you’re not sold on shelling out ridiculous amounts of money for a simple part, then you might be able to come up with a replacement on your own.
Lots of boat owners have managed to create DIY changing rooms with a bunch of poles and canvas sheets. Then again, you can always just buy a pop-up changing room or shower which pretty much serves the same purpose.
If you’re looking for something a little more pontoon boat-specific, there are drop down curtains you can buy for your bimini top that creates an isolated, private space when attached so your guests can get dressed or even go to the (portable) toilet.
We recommend the Eevelle Summerset Top Privacy Room that is attached to your bimini top.
Pontoon Boat Changing Room Alternatives
If your changing room isn’t really serving much of a purpose on board, then you might want to replace it with something else entirely. After all, changing rooms can take up a lot of space. There are lots of other boat features you can install to make better use of that space so you can fully enjoy your pontoon in a way that suits your preferences and needs.
Grill and Mini Kitchen
Set up a rail grill and buy a mini fridge to boot. You can also bolt a table to the deck to provide a space for you to serve up food or prepare meat and fresh fish for cooking.
We really like the Cuisinart Grill for Pontoons and super handy to have the Midea Compact Fridge set up as well.

You can never have too much storage on board. Consider investing in a pontoon cooler table and/or a bunch of boxes for keeping things like food, safety gear such as life vests, or your pontoon fishing essentials like rods and tackle.
Check out the Coleman Rolling Cooler and also the Elkton Rolling Fishing Tackle Box.
If you usually use your pontoon for fishing, then a live well should be a suitable investment. This can keep bait alive and fresh to improve your chances with each cast. You can also use it to keep your catch fresh until you get home.
We like the Frabill Magnum Live Bait Well.
Maximize Your Space
A pontoon changing room can be a functional boat feature if you’ve always got guests. But if you’re looking to customize your space to better suit your needs, then it might be time to get a pontoon changing room replacement. Consider these options and think about your own situation to help you maximize your space and get the best out of each boat trip.
