Crest Quality and Craftsmanship

Crest Marine has excelled in manufacturing pontoons since 1957. Our commitment to quality and excellence, combined with the dedication and expertise of our employees, is what allows us to create pontoons designed for luxury, comfort and your lifestyle.

Stronger Fence Rails

Crest fence rails are powder-coated with a durable hammer-textured finish. We use heavy-duty polymer and UV protected, marine-grade powder. We construct the rails using the strongest extruded aluminum in the industry (1.25″). Every panel insert is full height with 90-degree mitered gates.


Durable Deck Construction

The Crest deck is constructed using 3/4″, 7-ply marine-grade material, bonded with marine-grade adhesion, then sanded to a smooth finish. The deck is through-bolted and screwed to the chassis. Exclusive marine-grade polyvinyl or luxury woven vinyl is then adhered to the deck.


Superior Helm Stands

Each Crest helm stand is made of strong fiberglass -reinforced plastic (FRP) and is ergonomically designed and engineered to meet the needs of today’s boater. FRP is 77% stronger than the blow-molded plastic helms that are commonly found on pontoon boats.


Custom-Built Furniture

All Crest furniture is designed, handcrafted and engineered by our dedicated Crest team in our furniture, upholstery and sewing facility. We use superior marine-grade vinyl, plush marine-grade foam and the highest-quality construction materials for best-in-class comfort, strength and storage space.


High Quality Tubes

Each Crest tube has four sealed chambers for best-in-class safety, durability and flotation. Our tubes feature the longest and thickest gauge nose cones (0.100″ thick) and end caps (0.125″ thick) on the market, along with a solid, extruded 5/8″ keel.


Stronger Chassis

Each Crest chassis features the thickest gauge aluminum cross members on the market (0.250″ or 0.190″ thick) for the strongest, smoothest, driest and most comfortable ride possible.
